In this month’s blog, we catch up with mechanic Darren Philp and his role at Plymouth Radiators. We have been fortunate to welcome our new recruit, Darren who has been with us for the last few months and is a welcome addition to the team. With a wealth of experience in car mechanics, Darren’s knowledge complements and enhances our current service offering.

Experienced Mechanic

An experienced mechanic, 47-year-old Darren has been in the trade for over 30 years. Darren’s experience before joining Plymouth Radiators includes managing a garage, as well as being a mechanic in the Saltash area.

Darren said: “I’ve always enjoyed meeting new people and assisting people with their car troubles. It’s something that I learned from my dad at an early age, always tinkering around with vehicles. I just fell into the industry really.”

Darren hasn’t always been a mechanic, he was a panel beater and sprayer for years. He eventually decided he wanted to learn more and make the change to become a mechanic – if not only to get out of the cold during the winter!

Joining Plymouth Radiators

Darren learnt about the opening by a chance meeting one day. He had ordered some numberplates from Plymouth Radiators and when he came in to pick them up, Paul the owner mentioned that there was an opening for a mechanic and the rest is history.

Darren added: “I have been genuinely welcomed into the business by Paul and Ceri, they are a pleasure to work with and I can see myself being here for a long time – all being well! The atmosphere is relaxed but professional and there is always plenty to be getting on with, which is great.”

If you need Darren to help with your vehicle, his skills are second to none and he can assist with numerous services including full services, interim services, clutches, gearboxes, cambelts. He is also available for Car Winter Safety Checks.
