Our Story

Auto Expert Guides was created in 2018 by two automotive technicians (or just auto mechanics), Lucas and Thomas. While working at auto repair service, Lucas wanted to increase his knowledge and get in-depth niche researches and information. He couldn’t find information he was looking for, so right after a dialogue with Thomas an idea about Auto Expert Guides was born.
