At Salek’s Motors, we love Southampton and the surrounding Hampshire area. In fact, we’re proud to call it our home. As a company, we can’t think of a better place to own a garage or anybody better than the valued customers we serve. While most visitors to our workshop are native English speakers, we’re very aware that the region has a strong influx of settlers from different locations across Eastern Europe – including some of our own staff.
For this reason, we proudly operate as a dedicated Polish garage (Polski Garaz).
The automotive sector has a complexity that sometimes makes it difficult for some of our Polish customers to understand specific terminology. In our role as a “Polski Garaz”, we explain core services such as MOT testing and 3D wheel alignment in a language these customers understand. We also provide helpful assistance for Russians and Lithuanians.
Settling into a new country isn’t always easy and, as hard as one might try to learn a new language quickly, it takes many months and years to grasp the many complex terms that surround the motor trade. A Polski Garaz helps settlers to drive on UK roads safely and legally, whilst familiarising them with terms they’ll need when booking in for future work.
Having a Polish garage available in Southampton keeps these customers local, which we believe is particularly important for the area’s economy and for businesses like our own.
If you live in Southampton or any other location in the Hampshire area as a recent settler and could benefit from the services of a “Polski Garaz”, call in to see us at the earliest opportunity. Alternatively, we can speak you in Polish over the telephone.
And if you want to talk to us about our garage services in English but struggle with certain terms and phrases, please don’t worry. Everybody has to start somewhere and we’ll do whatever we can to make the experience feel as natural and as comfortable as possible.
