The company has come up with some unique giveaways, such as vouchers for detailing service. “The vouchers range from mini detailing all the way up to a full detailing service,” he said. Being a mobile detailing shop has its advantages when it comes to giving away prizes, according to Coates: “Because we are mobile we were able to visit the prize winners at their own address."

Coates has also worked with charities that support MS research, and groups working to help women in the field of business.

One of his favorite groups to support is the Rugby Union. “It is a burning desire of mine to support the local community and in particular Rugby Union. The sport has been my passion since playing for Bolton RUFC back in the UK.”
