But inside the garage, the team at Ken Vance Motors – owners Steve Griggs and Glen Newman, with their qualified mechanics Shaun Stopp, Les Ryan and Mick Wher rett – offer a full range of repairs and servicing for all makes and models. LPG conversions are a specialty of the business and there is a gas fitter on staff. Shaun Stopp (above, checking engine functions w ith computerised diagnostic equipment) has been with Ken Vance Motors for nearly four years. Goodyear Autocare Corner of Frederick and Margaret Streets, Launceston Phone 6234 6045 Mark Pearce took a positive view of the recent global financial crisis. “I don’t like to hear people talking-dow n the economy – in the end it can make a negative outlook come true,” he says. “Our business is growing and I say if the work ’s there, just get in and do it.” It’s a philosophy that has paid-off for Mark and his team at Goodyear Autocare, a successful enter prise once well-know n in the north as Launceston Tyre and Brake. Mark employs two qualified mechanics – Terry Wakefield has over 30 years’ experience in the industry while Mark Cruse is a former R ACT roadside contractor in Perth/Longford. “We also have Scott Ellston onsite,” Mark says. “Scott came to us from Repco so he really knows his way around the spare parts business.” It adds up to a team of extremely well- credentialled and experienced professionals in the motor trade. So if you’re looking for a one-stop shop for mechanical repairs and everything to do with tyres, call in and talk to Mark and his team soon.
