In 1996, long term colleagues Steve Abbs and Stuart Gemmell created MercAid. Both came from a Mercedes main dealer background where over many years they built up a wealth of knowledge and experience.
They started with a mobile operation, but soon after it became clear that in order to realise the full potential of their idea it would be wise to set up a small garage so they could build a stronger customer base. The idea was a success, and in 1999 they had to move into bigger premises, at the same taking on four more highly skilled technicians.
In 2004 the new concept of MercAid Cars was on the horizon, a site specialising in the servicing and maintenance of Mercedes Cars. As a long term associate of both Steve and Stuart, co-Director Simon Croft was brought in as they believed his commitment and dedication was to key to making this new concern a success.
Today they have two dedicated car sites specialising in Mercedes, BMW, Audi/VW, Porsche & Bentley as well as a Commercials garage incorperating Iveco & Hino Trucks, all of which cover the South Essex and East London areas. Not to mention a growing team of 36 hand picked people dedicated to their role.
With a customer base of over 8000 and growing loyal customers, the continuing success of MotorAid can be put down to delivering a friendly, reliable service and great value for money.
