ABOUT US 

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 having 15 staff, 3 mobile vans and a workshop on Trinder Ave in the heart of Maroochydore. 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. Accelerate Auto Electrics currently has 7 trade qualified auto electricians and a 3rd year apprentice auto electrician.
Our team is 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 to laser zone, indoor rock climbing, lawn bowls, skirmish and to a local aqua park.
