In 1996, MercAid Limited was born, as a joint venture between two close colleagues.
Both came from a Mercedes-Benz commercial main dealer background where over many years they built up a wealth of knowledge and experience.
They started with a small mobile operation specialising in commercial vehicle servicing and repairs, the business grew from strength to strength and in 1999 a specialist workshop was built and the employment team grew.
In 2004 the new concept of MercAid Cars Limited was established, an independent specialist in the servicing and maintenance of Mercedes-Benz cars.
Within a short space of time MercAid Cars Limited had developed a growing reputation and the customer base required us to open up a premises in Hainault, Essex.
After a name change in 2008 to MotorAid Ltd this enabled us to offer our customers servicing and repairs to all German brands and not just a one marque specialist. MotorAid now have two dedicated car sites specialising in Mercedes-Benz / SMART, BMW / Mini, Audi/VW (Skoda/Seat), Porsche & Bentley.
The Basildon site encompasses a two acre commercial vehicle repair operation specialising in all makes of LCV & HGV vehicles. There is also a stand-alone 4×4 garage, and an MOT centre there too. The main area of coverage is the South / Mid Essex and East London areas.
Our body repair centre opened in January 2015 for both car and light commercial vehicles.
We are an award-winning garage for “Best in Customer Services” which was awarded by The Essex Business Awards.
We have a loyal customer base which is growing daily. This is down to the continuing focus of MotorAid Limited to deliver a friendly, reliable service with value for money and peace of mind.
