Our Story

The business has been operating for more than 20 years. In 2011, it became part of the FleetCrew group of companies. As proud family owned and operated businesses, Alderley Automotive and Fleetcrew are held by the Harris and Strelow families.

After an extensive search for the right business, Alderley Automotive was the first workshop acquisition for the Harris and Strelow families. Ben and Mary-Ann had decided to leave the corporate world and begin a small business partnership focused on mechanical light vehicle maintenance and hire vehicles.

At Alderley Automotive, we have managed to strengthen our exceptional reputation over the years. Today, we stand in high regard within the local community. We’re known for our reliable service delivery, and unwavering commitment to integrity.

We support various community and charity organisations such as local schools and girl guides and individual establishments like Enoggera Bowls Club and Meals on Wheels. That’s alongside providing sporting sponsorship and supporting charity car rallies, eg. Road Boss Rally.

We are also active members of the Now Business Network which is focused on forging relationships within our local businesses whilst giving back to our community. We believe in paying it forward!

Alderley Automotive - street view


We are conveniently located in the heart of the business precinct on Pickering Street (opposite where the old Enoggera Bowls Club used to be located). We now have a handy pedestrian traffic light right out front, making it easy to access the train station (400m) or the new cafes (50m).

We are open from 6:30am to 5pm Monday to Friday. If these hours don’t suit, we have a secure after hours key drop and key safe facility. Our team can also arrange for local pick-up and drop-off, if required.

Finally, we can provide a short term loan vehicle (bookings essential and subject to availability) or a hire vehicle, at discounted rates. This is especially useful if your vehicle is expected to be off-the-road for an extended period of time.
