A brief history of Auto Services Perth Ltd

Auto Services Perth Ltd is a family-run, independent, commercial vehicle garage business providing multiple vehicle solutions in the form of vehicle SERVICING, MOTs, PARTS AND REPAIRS, RECOVERY, RENTAL and VEHICLESALES.

Stephen Crozier started the business in 1981 aged 21, with his father Jim. They initially worked from a rented lock-up in Perth and Jim continued to take an active interest in the garage until retirement. In 1988, Stephen had a stroke of luck on the football pools, which enabled him to invest in the company’s first recovery vehicle. Stephen, his wife Elaine and their son Mark are the current Directors and Mark is the driving force behind the company’s recovery operation. The company now operates 14 recovery trucks and 5 roadside service vans.

After 10 years, the company moved to a property in Ruthvenfield Place, Inveralmond Industrial Estate, Perth. Moving from the town centre out to Inveralmond was a huge move at the time……would our customers travel all that way?..... fortunately they did, but it was challenging times.

Over the years the workforce increased and the recovery side expanded, gaining contracts with the main breakdown companies including The AA, Green Flag, RAC to name a few.

The company currently has over 50 employees across its various operations - Vehicle service workshops are open from 7am until midnight, Monday to Friday and 9am until 1pm on a Saturday. Recovery operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, with drivers working a shift pattern.

The company was outgrowing its base at Ruthvenfield Place, Perth and in 2008, at the height of the credit crunch, moved into our current base at Bertha Park, Perth - but 12 years later it to is bursting at the seams, and the company will commence building another workshop at its site in Ruthvenfield Way, Perth.

When Covid-19 hit in March 2020, recovery numbers dropped from around 40 to 5 per day but gradually this improved as restrictions were relaxed - the workshop became busier as more people turned to online shopping - home delivery vehicles needed to be kept roadworthy. The company services vehicles for many of the main supermarkets and utility companies.

With the advance of electric vehicles, Auto Services Perth Ltd are investing in training for their technicians to enable them to service and repair these modern vehicles, and has 3 EV Charging points (including 2 x 22Kw Rolec units) installed at Bertha Park, Perth.

In November 2021, Auto Services Perth Ltd celebrated 40 years in business with a function held at Murrayshall House Hotel, Perth, for over 100 people, made up of staff, friends, customers and franchise partners. After almost 2 years of Covid-19 restrictions, we were all able to get together and celebrate , and each guest was presented with a specially commissioned bottle of gin or whisky.

40 years is a great achievement and the company is already planning for the 50th anniversary. The garage has bought its own barrel of whisky from the Arran Distillery – this will be ready in 10 years when it will be bottled for the staff, customers and franchise associates.
