Ales has 31 years of extensive international experience in the motor industry. He is a Gold Certified Vauxhall Technician and has worked for both Vauxhall Main Dealer & Toyota Dealer. His passion for cars was fuelled by his father who was a car and motorbike enthusiast. As a child, Ales dreamed of one day owning his own car garage. This dream came true in 2010 with the launch of AV Autos. Since then he has serviced almost every vehicle type, and has become an approved contractor for the London ambulance service.
Ales is married with 3 children and a dog called Beau-Belle. Ales and his wife Sylvie are dedicated to the success of AV Autos. They have a strong work ethnic, and are committed to delivering a high standard of service and craftsmanship.

Martin’s fascination with motors started at a young age, fixing cars with his older brother. At the age of 15, he studied car mechanics and body work at Ostrava College, Czech Republic and soon moved on to working for Vauxhall Dealer as a Vauxhall Specialist. Martin prides himself on the quality of his service and repairs, and when he is not busy working he continues to indulge in his passion for vehicles with a hobby in motorbikes.
“I love helping people and getting to know them and their cars. Each car is different and I love the problem-solving aspect of car mechanics.”
