Having always been fascinated by cars, when I left school at sixteen I immediately started applying for jobs in the motor trade. I was rewarded with a job in T & H Motors (Roundstone Car Centre) and trained as a mechanic where over a period of twenty five years I developed my skill and experience to eventually lead their team as a Workshop and Aftersales Manager.
An opportunity became available to progress my career at Rolls Royce, Chichester so I joined the team and took on the role as a Road Test Engineer. This was a demanding position driving and testing brand new, high worth vehicles as they came off the production line, many of which carried a £450,000 price tag!
Having enjoyed my time with this prestigious brand for over seven years, I felt the need to spread my wings and look at starting my own business doing what I love, maintaining cars. The last thirty years have given me an excellent base and skill set to be able to offer expert, professional advice alongside good value and personal service with my new business, Phil Wood Motor Services.
I’m very excited about the business and look forward to welcoming customers old and new.
Remember, I am based in Ferring and operate a FREE collection and delivery service so you don’t have the stress and worry of having work carried out on your vehicle.
