Changing Faces: Pit Stop Silverdale
Regular customers at Pit Stop Silverdale will have noticed some new faces in the workshop, but the new owners, Micelle Olivier and Gary Cox, say the service hasn’t changed.
“When it comes to getting your vehicle serviced or repaired, there’s pretty much nothing we can’t do,” Gary says. “I’ve had 26 years working on all makes and models of cars, from Japanese to European. Plus, we’ve taken on another mechanic and we’ve installed and upgraded the workshop equipment to provide a high-quality service.”
Michelle and Gary are backed by a strong New Zealand owned automotive store franchise, which has been in the market for more than 35 years.
“Our rates are competitive, and our work is fully guaranteed,” Michelle says. “Gary is my husband’s cousin, so we are also a family-run business. We work hard, we’re honest and we’ve got the experience to cover all car servicing needs, from repairs, warrant of fitness, brakes, exhausts and mufflers to shock absorbers and tyres.”
Both Michelle and Gary are originally from Durban, in South Africa.
Michelle is running the administrative side of the business, having set-up and run a few businesses before immigrating eight years ago.
Gary comes with all the mechanical knowledge. His father was a mechanic and he grew up watching his father work on cars and helping when he was allowed.
In his spare time, he competed in the Enduro race series on a KTM 300 and hopes, when time allows, to race his BMW 3 series in Taupo and Hampton Downs.
“Gary has a passion for fixing engines and all things involving motor vehicles,” Michelle says. “He has both electrical and welding experience as he owned an auto electrical company for many years.”
Both Michelle and Gary have young families and are involved in the community.
“From a simple oil change through to a brake service, a new set of shock absorbers for your car or diagnosing why those dashboard warning lights are on, you can trust us at Pit Stop to provide the best in automotive quality and care.”
