Meet The Owner

Israel Villavicencio

Israel Villavicencio started to develop an interest in auto repair right from the age of 14 and had a passion to help turn around the industry where customers’ satisfaction is prioritized. He started by leveraging his instinctive ability to mimic the practices of local mechanics at that time, in his vicinity. He attempted to repair a couple of cars at that time from the subtle knowledge he had garnered and those attempts turned out to be successful.

He knew full well his mandate is to disrupt the auto-repair market and help people manage their automobiles without stress. This realization influenced his decision to attend the Automotive Electrical School in 1992 to consolidate his knowledge about auto repair. He went ahead to study at the School of Mechanical and Commercial Aviation to broaden his horizon.

Mr. Villavicencio has acquired the requisite skills and hands-on experience to lead a growing customer base who are proud of his works. His certifications in Engine performance and air conditioning automotive have in a way helped him stand out from his competitors.

He has a certificate on ASE (Automotive Service Excellence) obtaining from A-8Engine Performance, A-6 Electrical/Electronic System, -2 Automatic Transmission. He also has a certificate in MACS (Movil Air Conditioning Society). He is a member of ATG (Automatic Service Group) as well as IATN International Auto Technician Network). He was trained to diagnose problems in European and domestic cars too.
