‘A dream come true’ for Coleman

Grand opening for Mobil 1 Lube Express Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The brand new Mobil 1 Lube Express, located at the corner of 200 Street and 64Avenue, features warranty-approved oil changes and the province’s most environmentally-friendly car wash.

For shop co-owner Adam Coleman, the business is a dream come true.

“I’ve always wanted to run my own business,” said Coleman, a journeyman automotive technician with dealership and heavy equipment experience.

“The problem for a lot of good trades workers is that you become too valuable to your company to promote. You become almost irreplaceable, so you need to strike out on your own in order to move up.”

Coleman, 30, is married and grew up in Aldergrove. He has served for 13 years and continues to serve as a Reserve member of the Canadian Forces.  His military service includes the Canadian Decoration for Honourable Service and a tour of duty in Afghanistan. He is the son of Fort Langley-Aldergrove MLA Rich Coleman.

Mobil 1 Lube Express is a new brand to Langley, but well-known across North America for their high-quality, synthetic and conventional premium oil products. In just 10 minutes, Coleman and his staff will be able to change a vehicle’s oil, top up the fluids, check all the hoses and belts and evaluate other vital fluids and components.

“This is service for people on the go,” said Coleman, noting all of Mobil 1’s work is warranty-approved and appointments are never necessary. “Businesses with fleets of vehicles will also find our work very helpful.”

But it’s not just oil changes and lubrication services at Mobil 1.  The shop features a 24-hour, completely automatic car wash, billed as the most environmentally-friendly car wash in British Columbia.

The four-minute wash recaptures and cleans up to 80 per cent of the water used. It also captures rain water from its roof, and cleans it for use in the wash. Add in biodegradable soap, and you have an eco-friendly car wash system.

“We wanted a clean, modern car wash that wasn’t bad for the environment,” said Coleman.

“No one should feel guilty about wasting water at our car wash, and it’s a good opportunity to talk to kids about water waste. We plan to have colouring sheets talking about a water wise lifestyle available for kids to learn more.”

And for Langley’s dog owners, a dog wash is also being installed, which will be open during oil change business hours. “We heard from a number of our Willoughby friends that more dog facilities are needed in the area, so the dog wash was a natural fit.”

The shop’s official grand opening celebration is set for this Sunday (Aug. 7) from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“Our grand opening will be a great family event,” said Coleman. “We’ll have entertainment, the Mobil 1 race car, JR FM on location, food, special offers, and some contests. We are looking forward to meeting our neighbors and becoming part of the Willowbrook community.”
