On the one hand cars are much safer, quicker and affordable than decades ago. Why there are even cars that run on batteries and owners will often have a charger in their garage at home. No more visits to top up that tank with petrol or diesel. But I say ‘so-called progress’ because the number of cars out on our roads today means two things - more roads and more tailbacks.
Our countryside is now criss-crossed with freeways and highways and our cities now have rush hour all day long. A century ago the average vehicular speed in London was about 8 mph. Have a guess what that figure is today? Yep, 8 mph.
But with the massive strides in technology in designing, building and servicing cars today, the days of changing the oil and checking the brakes as a service are long gone. Beneath the bonnet of your average new car today is a mini store of electronics. Motor mechanics now test using the latest technically-advanced gear. Now that is what you can call progress.
The service bays of car dealerships are packed with gear that could look at home in a hospital. Car servicing has gone up a gear or more like several gears. So, if you’re looking for a business to start, car servicing has a rosy future and then some. Or perhaps you’re already in the trade but would like to expand or even start up on your own.
It’s a venue, a business locale, a workshop. The success of any auto workshop depends on a number of things not least of which is the building in which you operate. It needs to look good, allow for the efficient handling of different vehicles, and not cost a bomb to construct and maintain. Steel’s the key.
Timber and concrete have been around for donkey’s years but steel is the new kid on the block and taking construction to places it’s not been before and in a hurry. Prefabricated steel has enormous advantages. It lasts the best part of a century before anything major needs doing. It requires far less maintenance than traditional building materials and it can handle just about weather calamity Mother Nature throws at it.

Working on any vehicle, even small ones, requires space around and beneath the vehicle. When using steel to construct your new workshop, height with this fabulous material is not a problem.
