Why you should choose us.

A Brief History

Hello, my name is Asif Ali and I am the director and master technician here at Five Star Autocentre. At the age of 28, I was having a fantastic career as a Master Technician at the Toyota main dealership. However, all of a sudden in 2008 the recession hit the country and I was one of the unfortunate to be made redundant. I applied for several jobs and was quickly offered one very lucrative position abroad in Qatar, Arab Emirates. I decided family life was more important to me and thought I would pursue a dream of mine in setting up my own business. It was a very hard decision to make given the economic climate we were in. I believe with the help of my family and friends I definitely made the correct choice. In our first year of opening my staff and I as a great collective team managed to win the title “New Business of the Year” at Huddersfield Examiner awards.

We believe whatever the size of your car, Five Star Autocentre based in Huddersfield can offer you a first-class service at a reduced price you’re currently paying to a main dealer – without invalidating your warranty. With no hidden extras our all inclusive fixed price servicing options are available to suit any pocket. You’re probably used to using a main dealer for your servicing. That’s a safe and a great option but many feel it often to be an expensive one. We can offer all the benefits of a main dealer operation – skilled mechanics, the latest diagnostic equipment and original manufacturers’ components – but without the huge mark-ups and sky-high hourly rates. The result? A first-class service that will save you money. A lot of money.
