After being open for 10 years, we decided to reach out to Lynsey Rowley, director of Volks Autos and Wife to David Rowley, owner of Auto Volks. With the industry having a history of being male-dominated, Lynsey hopes that her insight into running a garage as a female will give people an interesting perspective.<br /> <br /> Lynsey says that “Volks Autos is a welcoming, honest, hardworking garage and we strive for a top-class reputation both from a customer point of view and within the industry itself. We have a lot of expertise and experience when it comes to what we do. I am very proud of the true quality of the staff I employ”.

Russell Automotive Centre and Garage Express are located in Kingsbury Trading Estate in London.
