**Do you run a local business and would like to reach more people? Contact Torquay Online to see what we can do for you.**
Torquay Online is all about celebrating local businesses. This month we’re starting a new feature where we celebrate one new local business in the area.
This month’s local business of the month is Under the Bonnet Mobile Mechanics Service (Follow them on Facebook).
In their own words…
Under The Bonnet Mobile Mechanic Services is, as the name suggests, a mechanic who brings their services to you, wherever you may need us.
We know that for many people when issues arise with their vehicles it can literally bring their life to a stop and more often than not these issues happen at a time when funds may be hard to come by.
With our honest and open approach, we therefore aim to provide a high quality of work whilst keeping costs low.
We offer a range of services to keep you motoring and we never charge a call out fee!

I recently spoke to its owner, Dean Storton, and asked him a few questions about the business…
How long has the business been running for?
How did you get into starting the business?
I noticed a need for a mechanic that could save people money through an innovative approach whilst still maintaining high standards of work.
What is the most rewarding part of running your own business?
Being able to genuinely help people.
What has been the most difficult part of it?
The back of house things, and realising that the filing system in my head, that’s always been just fine, isn’t truly effective in real life!
Any plans to expand in the future?
Yes, there is an ultimate goal, but still trying to figure out how it can be achieved and put into practice.
Any advice to young people in the area looking to start a business?
Just go for it! Sometimes we have to take risks to achieve what we want, don’t let people talk you out of something because it doesn’t meet their ideals or expectations for you!
What’s your favourite thing about Torquay?
The diverse and ever changing coastline.
Thanks for answering our questions and good luck for the future of your business!
