About A1 Autocare

Dan and Emma Aylen started A1 Autocare in August 2006, firstly being mobile then in February 2008 the business had grown so much that a permanent site was required. In May 2012 A1 Autocare out grew the Summersdale premises, so relocated to the old A&H Garage in Lavant. We now have four fully qualified mechanics and two office members.

Dan Aylen became an apprentice after leaving school, he served two years at Drayton depot County council then the third year at Vauxhall. After working a further year at Vauxhall, Dan was given the opportunity to work for Rowes Rover where he spent six years. Dans dream was always to have his own garage, so he decided to gain more experience with main dealerships these included Citroen, Peugeot and Mitsubishi. Then after twelve years of main dealer experience, A1Autocare was born.
