About us

When you enter the doors of Accelerate Automotive on Beaudesert Rd, you’ll instantly feel at home. It’s what we love best about our mechanical repairs and personalised car servicing business. There is a lot of passion behind our boutique automotive repair business. 

Alan Wall and Carl Millward, two good mates, have worked together in a Premium Brisbane based European workshop, for over 15 years when they thought they could offer their customers something better than dealerships. Something personalised. The very first day they opened their doors, they only had two customers. But word spread. Since that opening day in 2007, they’ve been booked out ever since.

Our team have an extensive European Vehicles maintenance and repair background, along with being able to service and repair any make or model vehicle. We are well known for our quality of work and our ability to rectify complex diagnostic problems on vehicles.

We have built our reputation on giving the best car advice possible, and give our customers confidence in our guidance with our knowledge and expertise. At the end of the day, we want our customers to walk away knowing that they can trust us. We care about them as an individual, not just a number.

Visit Accelerate Automotive, and you’ll see our team with big smiles on their faces. We’re passionate about what we do. It’s why we’re so good at our job, and why our customers are so loyal. And, like our co-founder Carl says, ‘When you're passionate about what you do for a living it really shows in the way that you deliver. I can honestly say that our delivery is second to none, and that’s the reason why I love this job, I love this place and I love the customers that come here - simple as that!’
