A winning father and daughter auto team

Auto Assist Panel and Paint was voted the Best Panel Beater, and specialises in motor-vehicle repairs, restorations and rebuilds, and offers towing services. Mervyn Francis, who was in the motor industry for 35 years, and the front-shop manager for one of the biggest panel shops in Durban for 13 years, decided to open his own panel shop with his daughter Tanita, who shares a love for cars. They have only been in business for 21 months. “We appreciate all the encouragement and support we have received. Thank you so much to everyone for making this achievement possible,” says Mervyn.
