The Garage Busby Ltd. is a small business which was created by the son of brainchild Charles Melville, car designer and coach builder, from days of mastercraft journeymen. Brian Melville in November 1989, located a ruined house with a big garage and began creating, what now has become a fully kitted state of the art workshop, with underfloor heating and all the latest technology. It is handy for train stations and bus stops as it is close to Clarkston.
Brian, having served his apprenticeship with Callanders Engineering, the Mercedes dealer ship in the West End of Glasgow, also went to Langside College and at that time, the Glasgow training group on and off rigorous training and testing. Leaving Mercedes after being fully qualified with experience, he went to work for BMW, gaining factory courses and training, rebuilding cars and motorbikes and restoring vintage cars. He relentlessly kept going facing all the problems an independent garage faces, and is still offering a quality, personal service, a facility to have your car looked at, repaired, investigated at a reasonable price and on a personal basis.
The garage is not a high volume push them through type of workshop, it is time managed and caters admirably to the customer :being driven round the Benz: by their local dealer. The garage also services and repairs all makes of cars and is currently organizing MOTs.
There are plans for a new MOT station, incorporating a facility to do 3 MOTs at the one time which will rid the Southside of its MOT back logging, due to small garages being sold for property development. Currently Brian is working with excellent technicians who have prestigious motor trade backgrounds, people who went to college and have friends at college in the same business.
