Welcome to 'The Garage Inspector'
Hello, and thank you for visiting my website. I’m Andy Savva, 'The Garage Inspector'. I understand that more often than not, independent garage owners feel alone at the top, with nobody to bounce ideas off; nobody to hold them accountable, to help them put new systems in place, to help them reach their goals or to confirm where their numbers need to be to achieve the highest level of success – through garage business training, garage marketing and garage business marketing.
Well, this is where I can help you.
So, whether you’re interested in filling up your service bays with your ideal customers, implementing proven systems that will make your business far more productive, building a team of superstar advisors and technicians, or understanding exactly where your numbers need to be, I will help you reach your goals. Better yet, I’ll do so in a way that has a positive impact on your employees, your customers, your community, and our industry.
I provide a comprehensive range of automotive industry-oriented training programmes focused on the improvement of people and processes within your business. I cover a number of well-established management tools and skills for the independent aftermarket and retail sector, to enhance service and business performance.
As an automotive expert , I have years of both practical and academic knowledge, and experience, coupled with an unrivalled passion for the automotive aftermarket sector. This allows me to truly understand the client’s needs to deliver successful assignment completion, and developing new business out of that success.

I have been involved in the the automotive industry for 35 years. I have owned & managed successful garages since 1994. In 2001, I won the prestigious award for "The National Independent Garage of the Year" held at the Hilton London Hotel, having been a finalist two years earlier.
In 2005 I sold my businesses and went on to complete a Diploma in Automotive Retail Management at Loughborough University (2007). During that period, I consulted for a variety of vehicle & parts manufacturers, and to retail and independent garage businesses. I have a strong understanding of lean and kaizen practices which enables me to implement continuous improvement strategy.
I was elected Fellow of The Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) in April 2008, and also served five years on the The Independent Automotive Aftermarket Federation Board (IAAF) as a council member and Vice President.
In 2010, I started a new venture (Brunswick Garage): a state of the art, 14000 sq.ft. purposely built vehicle repair workshop, offering a dealer level service for BMW, Mini, Volkswagen, Audi, & Land Rover. In July 2012, Brunswick Garage reached the final 5 in "The National Independent Garage of the Year" award, organised by the Motor Trader Magazine held at the Grosvenor Hotel Park Lane.
Having sold this business in 2015, I am now running an Aftersales Consultancy practice working with both retail and aftermarket organisations, specifically in the garage sector. In 2018 I launched a series of 1 day business training courses specifically for the independent garage sector, this is a unique initiative within this market.
I am a frequent, passionate key note industry speaker, quoted to be: "engaging, motivational and sometimes thought provoking." My automotive business articles are regularly published in a variety of automotive trade publications. Very proud UK ambassador for Schaeffler, Philips Automotive Lighting and Varta Batteries.
All I can say is a big thank you. I feel like it’s a new beginning and I also feel like I had lost my way but you have given me a map to making work again. I can’t tell you how grateful I am for your work.
We are still turning that corner. But I can honestly say the best thing I done to turn that corner was having your help and direction.
