Home People MEN WITH MOMENTUM: Vian Marais


Business owner Vian Marais draws his inspiration from the Bible. He says that to be able to get up every day and live his dream, as well as being able to make a difference in someone’s life, and every satisfied smile on a customer’s face makes all the hard work worthwhile.

Vian says that to be able to survive in the business world one needs to believe in yourself and one’s team, and you must work hard every day. “You need to get up when you encounter a setback, look up, and have a positive mindset because it brings positive things.”

He runs his business on integrity and always remaining humble and not letting the bad days get to him, as he believes that success is getting up again when you fall or face challenges.

“Integrity is our signature stamp on every vehicle we repair. We strive for excellent customer service and high quality workmanship. Our industry is full of new challenges and you need to stay abreast of all changes and new technology.”

The last two years have been a major challenge in the industry due to the pandemic, but with grace, the team at Autobody Worx did not have to let any of their staff go and the full team is still running the business.

As an owner, Vian prioritises the growth of his staff members through providing training and courses and by encouraging them to get involved in the community.
