A Fast Fit Centre focuses on the repair and maintenance of light vehicles, including replacing tyres, exhausts, batteries, brakes and clutches, carrying out services and MOT's plus more. These businesses operate within quick timeframes, aiming to get the work done and the vehicle returned to the customer as quickly as possible.
Working in a Fast Fit Centre means dealing with a huge spectrum of vehicle makes and models but all work carried out must meet manufacturer standards so knowledge and skill is required from all Fast Fit Technicians.
In order to make the operation as quick and efficient as possible, the technicians are usually assigned a specific area to focus on, although most will be fully trained to work on all aspects of a car.
Working on the tyres and exhausts section is a physical job that requires skill and expertise. The duties of a Tyre Technician would generally include carrying out wheel alignments, repairing tyres, brakes, steering and suspension as well as changing batteries and carrying out exhaust repairs and changes. It is also important that all records and documentation is completed correctly. With over 30 million vehicles serviced each year in the UK alone, working with Vehicle Tyres and Exhausts is a very busy role to be in.
There are lots of opportunities for growth and promotion in Fast Fit Repair Centres for hard working and dedicated employees. Skills honed working with Tyres and Exhausts are valuable in other aspects of the business as well as the wider automotive industry.
Most Fast Fit Centres operate Monday- Saturday and some will also open on a Sunday, meaning that some weekend working is expected, usually on a rota basis.
