Gary Coffey runs a long established Abernethy business which has grown hugely over the past 15 years.

He began by renting part of the garage and then in 2012 expanded by taking in his brother-in-law as a partner and to run the workshop and servicing side of the business. Steven O’Brien had 20 years experience and great knowledge of the industry, giving Gary more time to develop car sales and build a new M.O.T. Centre.

Gary Serbie and Nigel Tyrell work as mechanics and MOT testers in the garage while Gary’s son Liam Hally works as a mechanic servicing and repairing sales cars with David Currie valeting and detailing sales cars.

Gary lives with his partner, Lynn Rettie, and when not working he enjoys Stock Car Racing and his Show Pigeons. He doesn’t enjoy the long hours and working evenings and weekends but the very worst thing is having to tell customers bad news about their cars He finds the best part of the job is dealing with and being part of the local community He would like to express his thanks to all his customers for the good feedback and reviews he gets and which make the job worthwhile.
