In September 2008 – sick of the traffic and city smog – Andrew & Briohny moved to the Sunshine Coast.
As a qualified auto electrician and mechanic, Andrew started up his own mobile Auto Electrical business – Accelerate Mobile Auto Electrics.
Since then, Accelerate Auto Electrics & Air Conditioning has grown from ‘one man in a van’ to employing over 15 staff and opening a massive workshop on Trinder Ave in the heart of Maroochydore, as well as opening up our very own Shopify store over at Accelerate Off-Grid Touring… and we’re still growing!
The team at Accelerate are dedicated to the business and ensuring our customers have a positive experience with us. We are committed to continual growth and strive to be the leaders in our industry.
Meet the Team
Our team is the heart and soul of our business, they are young and fun there isn’t a day that goes by that a prank isn’t played, or someone in the workshop isn’t singing along to 90’s pop songs. We also hold team social events monthly, recently we have been bowling, to laser zone, indoor rock climbing, lawn bowls, skirmish and even the local aqua park.
