The AutoGrid has operated since April 2009 from our central location at The Temple, Carryduff.
The Proprietor Garry Fitzpatrick has over 30 years of Motor Industry Experience. From serving petrol to the more practical side of the workshop environment as an apprentice technician and after 6 years dedication and countless exams to Master Technician in this field. Following this accomplishment Garry decided to take up the new challenge of car sales. After 3 years experience as a Car Sales Executive within a well respected Franchise he was offered the position of General Manager. Garry held this position for 10 years across 4 different Franchises of which the last 7 years were spent with Charles Hurst Toyota Dundonald.
Garry has said "It has been my life long dream to run my own used car business and here at The AutoGrid I intend to use my experience, knowledge and commitment to operate a friendly, professional and personable environment for customers who are in the marketplace planning to buy a used car."
In 2015, Garry further expanded The Autogrid, with a new purpose built facility at the existing site at Temple crossroads, only 10 minutes from Sprucefield and 5 minutes south of Carryduff/Belfast. The new site also included a brand new service centre with fully trained technicians, diagnostic equipment for all brands, valeting centre and modern sales offices with customer waiting area. This has resulted in one of the most modern and professional used car sites in Northern Ireland.
