About Us

Movie Pass
Referral Programme

Our loyal customers often refer us to their friends, so we have introduced a referral scheme that enables us to say thank you.

Movie vouchers

Tell a friend about our service and we'll thank you with a double movie pass when they bring their car to us. Just remember to let us know, or make sure your friend does, so that you don't miss out on the movie pass!

Phone Before We Fix Guarantee

We know that the last thing you want is a surprise when you return to collect your car.

When we conduct a Warrant of Fitness check, a Mechanical Service or Repair, if anything requires extra work we guarantee to telephone and discuss this with you before we proceed.

 Our Team


Julian has been with Epsom Automotive since he started as an apprentice 7 years ago, and his cheeky sense of humour has certainly kept us entertained.  Now one of our old (and nearly married!) hands, he is a fully qualified mechanic and a valued member of our team.

Having worked with Rhett many years ago, Glenn didn't take too much persuading to leave his role in Glen Eden, where he'd been an A-Grade mechanic for 9 years, and join Epsom Automotive. Glenn's a family man whose depth of automotive experience is highly valued at Epsom Automotive.

Kyle is our apprentice mechanic and learning fast. He's a really nice guy to have around, and since he has known Rhett since he was just a kid, he really is part of the family. Julian has promised not to play too many tricks on the new kid on the block (but we're keeping our eye on him)!

Sharon (Rhett's mum) does her best to hide out the back, concentrating on the accounts, marketing and keeping Rhett in line (no mean feat!). Sharon has been part of the Epsom Automotive team since its inception in 1998 although we do allow her the odd holiday to explore the globe with her husband, Mike!

Rhett, his wife Kelly and the entire Epsom Automotive team sadly miss the late John McCullagh who was a vibrant and much loved Workshop Manager for many years. Valued as a dear friend by the Epsom Automotive team and customers, John made an impression on everyone he met with his cheeky grin, roguish sense of humour and genuine care for other people. We like to think that these qualities remain part of the culture at Epsom Automotive!
