JK Autos is a family run business established in 1981 by Jim Kirby and his wife Caroline. Jim’s start in the motor industry came at just 16 after designing and building a go-kart featured in the Birmingham Evening Mail. After that, Jim moved into demolition and gained his vast knowledge and skill with heavy machinery and engineering.
Jim's passion for motor vehicles brought him into the automotive trade with a hands-on apprenticeship that saw him gain his diploma at a local Birmingham garage.
JK Autos business started in 1981 with a single vehicle built by its owner Jim Kirby, shortly after starting recovery work for West Midlands police, driving at night and working on repairing cars in the day. The early days saw business run from a small rented site of 2000 sq ft.
Today, JK Autos operates over a site of 3.5 acres.
Now in its 36th year the business continues to thrive and is now a highly successful and respected business, specialising in Repairs and Recovery.
JK Autos prides itself on being a family-run business. We enjoy passing on the knowledge and experience gained over the years to our workforce through good support and training.
JK Autos was one of the primary operators involved in one of the UK's largest motorway disasters on 10th March 1997 on the M42, in which sadly, 10 people lost their lives.
They were a support incident handler on the day and were instrumental in clearing the motorway, in preparation for resurfacing and its return to a fully operational running state. Every heavy and light vehicle taken from this accident was monitored for the investigation work that followed.
