Best Mobile Tyre Van in West Yorkshire

A new mobile tyre fitting service in West Yorkshire, needs your help.

We did it!

On 8th Oct 2015 we successfully raised £5 with 1 supporter in 1 days



Welcome to the Smiths Auto Centres crowdfunding campaign... 


Welcome to my crowdfunding campaign for


Nicholas Smith

Confucius once said "Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life".

My Campaign

I need your help. I'm trying to raise £10,000 so that I can purchase my first mobile tyre fitting van so that I can open the doors to my new tyre fitting business. By supporting my campaign, you're saying two things.

The first is that you want a great tyre fitting service that comes to you at a time and place to suit you.

The second is that you understand that you believe anything is possible as long as you work for it.


What will the money be spent on?

The money raised from this campaign will be spent on purchasing a mobile tyre fitting van. If I can find a complete van ready to go to work I will purchase that, but more than likely I will need to source the items individually which will include a van, tyre fitting machine, tyre balancer and various hand tools.

Once I have purchased the items and the business is running, I will contact each and everyone of you to show you the invoices from these purchases to show you what I have purchased.


What's in it for you as the supporter?

By supporting me at a very basic level, you will get tyre fitting vouchers and the number of these vouchers will depend on how much you support my campaign. If you support me with £12 I will provide you with one tyre voucher and a 10% discount card. If you support me with £30 I will provide you with four tyre voucher and a 10% discount card. And obviously we have options in between.


About Me

I'm Nick and I'm the person behind this campaign. I live by the last two lines of the poem Invictus, which are "I am the master of my fate, I am the capitan of my soul" and for me this represents that we can achieve anything we want as long as we work for it.

From as far back as I can remember, I've always been somewhat of a petrol head. I love anything with an engine and wheels and I love finding out how things work, so much so that I studied for a City and Guilds qualification in vehicle maintenance as well as working a full time job and it was during this study that I realised a few things.

I wanted a job that involved working on cars, I loved meeting people from all specturms of life because individually each and everyone of us brings something completely different with us and finally that being out in the fresh open air is where I excel.

I don't believe in being given a free hand for nothing and I want to earn my money, which is why I've setup this campaign, to raise the funds needed for my new business whilst providing a much needed service to car owners from across West Yorkshire.
