With over 40 years’ experience as an auto electrician, Chris is now the proud owner of Autofit88; an auto electrical, accessory and battery store in Adelaide, “with our Industry experience we’re able to offer customers informed advice and provide skilled services to properly kit out any vehicle” says Chris. Originally from Alice Springs, Chris decided to semi-retire and move South to Adelaide.
As a previous R&J Batteries customer and long-time friend of Managing Director Ray, Chris chose to return to his trade and officially re-joined the R&J Batteries family in August. “I’ve been in the industry for a lot of years, and you work out what is good and what is bad, Ray’s brands are all good,” he says.
When entering into his new business venture Chris wanted a name to reflect the core of the business, “I wanted a name that suited what we did, and my race number is 88”. The business supplies and installs auto electrical accessories including lights, UHF radios, towing equipment, and dual battery systems. They also offer a wide range of batteries for all purposes including 4X4s, caravans, cars, trucks boats and more!
Their newly refurbished location boasts a fully equipped workshop where Chris and his team complete automotive health checks, free battery tests, wiring, fit-outs and installs. Chris and the team are often available to do automotive health checks and battery tests on the spot, just call in and ask them!
Autofit88 and R&J Batteries
As the owner of Autofit88, Chris has built a strong relationship with the R&J Batteries family over the years and is now a preferred distributor of R&J Batteries in Adelaide.
With our recent move to Hindmarsh, there was a gap in Melrose Park for battery servicing, which Chris was quickly able to fill. Chris offers all current R&J Batteries customers the ability to use their existing accounts to collect all the same batteries from Autofit88 that they would have previously purchased from our Melrose Park store. Autofit88 is conveniently located just two minutes North of our previous store along South Road.
