Accountant turned garage owner on a mission Dec 2016
An entrepreneur has launched an innovative campaign to improve the public perception of the motor trade, including one of the UICs cheapest MOTs.
SOLIHULL, U.K. - Dec. 14, 2016 - PRLog — A businessman who trained as an accountant has introduced one of the UK's cheapest MOT tests, in a bid to combat the "unnecessary profiteering and upsetting" by garages.
Kamran Saleem, aged 35, who owns award-winning independent car and van servicing centre, MotorServ-UK, located in Monkspath, Solihull, has introduced a no-strings £15 MOT only fee for an indefinite time period.
Fed up with the motor trade's reputation for charging customers for work that's either not done or not required, Saleem has put his entrepreneurial skills to the test by launching initiatives such as, 'No pass no fee MOT and 'brake pads for life.'
A resident of Solihull all his life, Saleem graduated from Aston University Business School, where he developed a taste for entrepreneurship. As well as founding MotorServ-UK in 2014, Saleem is also a director of a major Birmingham-based accountancy and asset finance business.
Commenting on his mission to restore the public's faith in the motor repair sector in his hometown, he said:
"Whilst I'm proud to have been born and bred in Solihull, I believe the motor trade as a whole is perceived as doing the public a disservice. Our business has been built on transparency, quality and value for money, not to mention massive investment in skilled people, state-of-the-art premises and equipment, so were on a mission to drive out the unscrupulous traders who simply view Solihull residents as cash cows."
Following years of complaints to Trading Standards about rogue garages, the Government has recently introduced a new Motor Ombudsman. Motorists who feel ripped-off, cheated or let down by garages and car dealers can seek resolution by taking their case, free of charge, to this industry-wide service, covering new and used cars, service, repair, finance and warranties.
