About Andy


Andy has been involved in the Automotive Industry for 30 years. He has owned and managed successful garages since 1994. In 2001 his garage at the time Shaftesbury Garage won the prestigious award of National Independent Garage of the Year Award at the Hilton London.

In 2005 he sold his businesses and went on to complete a Diploma in Automotive Retail Management at Loughborough University (2007). During that period Andy consulted to a variety of Vehicle Manufacturer’s and Parts Distributors in Aftersales Business Improvement (Kaizen) & Strategy.

He was elected Fellow in April 2008 of The Institute of the Motor Industry, which he is very proud of. He is also a council & advisory member of The Independent Automotive Aftermarket Federation (IAAF). The IAFF is a voluntary organisation of senior automotive executives that meet on a regular basis to discuss industry issues and set IAAF policy.

In 2010 Andy opened his newest venture, a state of the art 15000 sqft purpose built vehicle repair workshop offering a dealer level service for BMW, MINI, Volkswagen, Audi, & Land Rover.

In just 18 months July 2012, Brunswick Garage reached the final 5 in The National Independent Garage of the Year Award organised by the Motor Trader Magazine held at the Grosvenor Hotel Park Lane. Having sold this business in November 2015, he is now MD at Savva Automotive an Aftersales consultancy business working with both retail and aftermarket organisations as well as public speaking for the industry and writing for automotive trade publications.

It has been a pleasure to have met you, I think my life in the motor trade may be richer in all ways because of it. I look forward to learning from you over the coming months. Thank you.

Andy was able to give me an insight into my own potential business future and holds a fantastic wealth of experience in the automotive aftermarket industry. It is hard to imagine asking him to evaluate your business being anything less than beneficial to you, your staff and your company.

Following Andy’s recent visit to our garage we are feeling very positive about the way forwards. Andy pointed out where we were doing well and also crucially highlighted the areas where we have room for improvement. His no-nonsense style means that he gets his message across quickly and clearly.

All I can say is a big thank you. I feel like it's a new beginning and I also feel like I had lost my way but you have given me a map to making work again. I can't tell you how great full I am for your work. We are still turning that corner. But I can honestly say the best thing I done to turn that corner was having your help and direction."

Andy quickly and efficiently gained an overview of our business and it's current limitations. He offered realistic, sensible and practical solutions which we will be definitely implementing. His understanding of the motor trade and business is extensive and has enabled us to look at our business with a fresh pair of eyes, many thanks!

I would highly recommend Andy Savva and his company Savva Automotive Ltd to all these garages which struggle, need help and are willing to open their minds for new ideas. Andy Savva is for garages like Gordon Ramsey for restaurants!!!

Thank you so much for coming in this morning. The feedback from the students was brilliant. The supervising teacher told me that was the best behaved she had ever seen them and she was so impressed by the quality of their questions and how engaged they were. You are a star and I can't thank you enough!

Andy’s attention to detail and philosophy to continually train his entire team to the highest standard has made his garage the ideal partner for our Pro Tech Plus Workshop Scheme.

Andy is widely recognised as one of the leading independent garage owners in the UK. One of the reasons for this is that Andy recognises the constant demand for independent garages to stay ahead of the latest technologies and servicing requirements.
