The 7,527 sq ft. site was previously a branch of trade counter Yesss Electical. Now retooled as an autocentre, it is operated by the same franchisee as the Reading branch.

John Dines, UK Operations Director for Quick Lane, said: “Quick Lane Bracknell is ideally situated to deliver convenient automotive servicing and maintenance that fits around the busy lives of local people, giving them back the one thing they value most – time.”

Quick Lane continues to invest heavily in its franchise network across Europe. Its Reading location recently invested £40k into new MOT equipment and the business has plans to further expand its network in the UK and Germany in the coming months.
