HOW IT ALL BEGAN
Biteka Auto is a one stop workshop, from tyre & general fitment, mechanical repairs and panelbeating & spraypainting. It has operated in different guises for more than 15 years. The recent ones being Dave’s Panelbeaters & Mechanical Works as well as E-Tyres. The current owners, Thuli & Vusi Shibe took over the then informal and struggling workshop in 2017. They injected capital, skilled staff, equipment, operating systems, Bosch technology and rejoined the relevant industry bodies like RMI/ SAARAA and AA. In 2018 as part improving the image, recognisability and support, they joined the e-CAR network.
Biteka Auto is well located between the Pinetown CBD and Westmead Industrial area, making its accessibility easy with minimal traffic congestion. It is ideally positioned to serve customers coming off the M13 highway and N3 freeway Marianhilll/Westmead exits. It still requires a lot of clients though for the investment made but certainly has great potential, as it now boasts some government over and above the individual and commercial clients.
It has been beneficial to be part of the e-CAR network as it enables access to a pool of expertise thus reducing time in vehicle fault finding and thus improved turnaround time. We are fortunate to have an experienced team whose skills continue to be enhanced by regular training and exposure to latest technology. The e-CAR network gives us the market recognition as a reliable workshop due to their strict compliance and technological requirements making it a trusted brand.
