Motorists in Ilford can look forward to 'a revolution in car care' after two new fast fit centres opened in the area, it was revealed.

The HiQ fast fit network, which boasts 135 centres across the UK, has attracted two new business partners, who will offer a range of automotive services in Hainault and Seven Kings.

Father and son team Shashi and Viresh Chanderana will open a centre in Forest Road, Hainault which will operate alongside their existing automotive company called SN Autohaus.

Qamar Rashid will also open a centre in High Road, Seven Kings as HiQ attempts to create a greater presence across Essex.

HiQ's franchise development manager Peter Tye said: "We are naturally excited about these announcements, which further demonstrate HiQ's appeal to highly respected business people in the industry. We look forward to working with them closely over the coming months."

 Viresh was equally thrilled with the deal, adding: "HiQ's unrivalled brand presence suited us and complimented our brand perfectly,

"HiQ's modern approach and franchise network appealed greatly compared to its competitors and there is a lot of synergy between us.

"HiQ also offers great value and we believe we can offer great value to HiQ, which means we should score together and achieve our goals."

Shashi and Viresh also own V-Tech UK, which specialises in diagnostic and garage equipment, and boast 27 years of experience in the industry.

Qamar Rashid, who will run HiQ in Seven Kings added: "We have been in the motor trade for a number of years and when the chance came along to open a HiQ centre, we jumped at it.

"The centre is in a great location, and HiQ's national brand, coupled with our local knowledge, should make this partnership a big success."
