Having opened the doors to their local business in January 2008, its directors Scott Shiel and Darren McMahon explained that they "recognised a gap in the market for top quality parts available to local automotive trade and retail customers at great prices."
As such, they pointed out that the Auto One buying group model provided them with an opportunity to tap into great value products but still give them flexibility to stock brands and items requested by locals trades.
Elaborating on that point, "Auto One stocks products from over 150 suppliers, including top names such as SP Tools, Armor All, HiChem, KinChrome, Narva, NGK, Rhino Rack, Nulon, Penrite, Valvoline, Wesfil, Supercharge and Exedy to name just a few," they said.
"The range on offer is extensive from wiper blades and globes through to roof racks and car audio.
"We also offer a paint mixing service, and recently extended our range to include caravan and trailer spare parts and accessories."
A little more than 11 years after establishing themselves here, Auto One Goulburn currently employs nine staff members.
The positions they fill include a store manager, sales representatives, specialist parts interpreters, a storeperson and a delivery driver.
"The key to our success is our staff," they said.
"We pride ourselves on employing knowledgeable staff with a passion for the automotive industry. We strongly believe in the Auto One motto of; Right gear, right advice.
"Our staff have access to thousands of product lines and will help you select the right product for your vehicle accessories or repairs and maintenance.
"We’re not interested in just making a sale, we want to make sure you have the right part to complete your job and are happy to provide guidance on installation to the home mechanic. If you are after a particular part, we will do our best to source it for you at a competitive rate."
Additionally, "We are really keen to ensure that all the local automotive retailers and service providers have access to products they need to provide exceptional service to their customers and in turn ensure the local community don’t have to travel and take business out of Goulburn and surrounding districts."
With new models of vehicles being introduced all the time, it’s important any replacement parts you purchase for your vehicle are fit for purpose.
"We won’t just sell you a part, we will sell you the part you need to complete your job. If you are unsure and just need advice, our team of professionals are more than happy to discuss your requirements.
"Seeking professional advice ensures you walk out of the shop with the right part, saving you time and money."
The team at Auto One Goulburn also pride themselves on being an active part of the local community and giving back where they can.
"We have proudly supported local organisations and community events including The Laggan Car Show, Goulburn Speedway, Goulburn Rodeo, Goulburn Preschool, Can Assist, Convoy for Kids and the Goulburn North Public School fireworks spectacular.
"The community supports our business so it’s important for us to ensure local events and organisations also have the opportunity to share in our successes."
Scott and Darren's Auto One shop is located at 11 Goldsmith Street, Goulburn.
