Southern Autos was established in 1987 by Ross McPhillips & Steve Mason. Both partners coming from a smash repair background.
Their original premises was in Machinery Drive for 12 years. After this time, they acquired a block of land in Parkside Drive where in 1999 they built their first owner operated shop.
In 2009, a larger building was erected behind the original shop as the business had grown and expansion was necessary.
In the beginning of 2011, they installed a large truck spray booth/oven in order to attract larger commercial work.
Southern Autos is still owned by the original partners and is the only owner operated Smash Repair businesses in the local area.
