Tammy and Darren own and operate the Autopro shops in Kyneton and Castlemaine. This is their 29th year in automotive sales. Darren started out as a mechanic but now focuses on running the businesses.
What’s the story behind your business?
“We created it from scratch. We saw an opening in the community for an automotive sales business. We started with sales and then offered mechanical services as well. We started with Kyneton and the business grew so much that we had to move to a larger shop. About four years ago, we took over an established automotive business in Castlemaine.”
What inspires you?
“Providing a quality service to people of Kyneton. We enjoy helping everyone, from car enthusiasts to everyday drivers, and making sure they stay safe on the roads.”
What does home mean to you?
“Family, friends, pets, and time to relax away from work. We love knowing there’s always someone in the community who will support you if you need it, and bumping into friendly faces down the street and in the supermarket.”
What’s your typical weekend like?
“Bike rides, walks, family time, gardening, home improvements, and socialising with friends. We enjoy being active.”
