First established in 1987, Wilson’s Auto Repairs has been proudly servicing Lambton and the surrounding suburbs of Waratah, New Lambton, Kotara, Mayfield and Garden Suburb for over 30 years.
Wilson’s Auto Repairs has been a family owned and operated business since it was first opened in 1987 by John Wilson. The original workshop was situated in the current carpark, however, when the 1989 earthquake damaged the workshop beyond repair, John moved the business next door to where the current workshop is located.
Ian Baines began working for John at John Wilson Auto Repairs in 2000, leaving Newcastle Regal Motors to take up the position. Ben Hopper moved from a small country town called Tallimba in 2001 to play football for the Newcastle Knights and started working for John in 2002. John retired from the automotive trade in 2008, selling the business to Ian and Ben.
Ian and Ben, along with their wives Sam and Amanda changed the business name to Wilson’s Auto Repairs when they took over the business. Sam took the position of office manager while Amanda worked as a Primary Teacher at Stockton Public School. Sadly Sam lost her long battle with Breast Cancer in 2015, leaving Ian to raise their two daughters. Amanda now works as the office manager while caring for her and Ben’s four young children.
