Aylesbury Trailer Servicing Ltd.
Endsleigh, Oxford Road (A418)
Aylesbury Trailer Servicing is a partnership run by Scott McKenzie and Sam Smith combining years of experience in the automotive trade and agriculture.
I found a love for mechanics in my early teens and spent many hours each evening stripping and building cars outside my house long before I could drive them on the road. As soon as I finished school I found an apprenticeship with a Land Rover specialist who took me on and with them I completed my Level 3 advanced apprenticeship. Not enjoying the ‘modern mechanics’ which is mostly electrical problems solved by plugging a car into a laptop an opportunity came up to work for a trailer service agent. This is where I fell in love with the tools all over again. The variety of materials that can be worked on on trailers far outweighs that of a car and the ‘old school’ mechanical workings means that there are more opportunities to fix rather than replace. Out of my enthusiasm and optimism Aylesbury Trailer Servicing was born.
Being born into a farming family I’ve literally grown up around trailers. As my dad has his own farm workshop and carries out all of his own repairs I am no stranger to a mechanical conundrum and am pretty sure even he would struggle to remember when I first started using a spanner. I pride myself on being able to fix things that are broken rather than just replacing parts and being able to see solutions to problems that require fabrication.
