Staff & Expertise

  • Simon Wild

    Hi, I’m Simon, the proud owner of Speedy Spanners. After many years working in main dealerships, I saw enough and did enough to know I could go one better. Speedy Spanners was born, and we are now in our 10th year of trading. My passion for being hands-on with cars is still as strong as when I was a young apprentice but thankfully, I have a lot more experience now! Throughout my career, I have met some great people and still see today some of my loyal customers from 25 years ago. For those precious hours away from work, I enjoy spending some quality time with Laura and the boys and football is prevalent. If I’m not watching my 3 boys play, we are often found at Fratton Park hoping desperately for the win!  

  • Sean Yates

    Hi, I’m Sean, I’ve been working at Speedy Spanners for 8 Years after completing my Automotive NVQ level 3 with Simon mentoring me. I am one of the 3 Mechanics who look after your car. I am currently working towards obtaining my electric vehicle qualification. In my spare time, I enjoy clay pigeon shooting and off-roading. You can’t miss me I am the tall one! See you soon. 

  • Craig Childs

    Hi, I’m Craig, the newest member of the Speedy Spanners team. After 20 years in the body repair side of cars, I decided to see how the mechanical half lives! It will probably be myself you speak to if you give us a call as I arrange most of the bookings, quotes and handing over of the cars. Always happy to have a laugh (when appropriate obviously) and always here to help. Outside of work, I am kept busy with my two teenage boys and 3-year-old Cockapoo.

  • Laura Wild

    Hi, I’m Laura, the proud wife of business owner Simon! You may be lucky enough to speak to me on occasions if you call into the Speedy Spanners Office, but generally, I tend to work in the background organising the men and keeping an eye on the paperwork. Alongside looking after the Speedy Spanners team, I’m busy running around after our 3 lively boys and our puppy Coco. I joined Speedy Spanners having previously worked as a Deputy Nursery Manager of a children’s nursery, so managing the team often brings out my playful and humorous side which lends itself well in our garage environment! Simon and I met over 25 years ago and have been together ever since. We have always lived in the area and are proud to own a local business serving our community and seeing familiar faces.

  • Max Wild

    Hi, I’m Max the youngest member of the Speedy Spanners team and eldest son of Simon and Laura. You can see me on a Saturday morning, emptying the bins, sweeping the floors, and doing the important job of making the tea to keep the mechanics going! I am currently at school and have a keen interest in sports, especially football. I’m not sure where my future will take me but I’m learning some valuable life lessons working alongside my dad and the Speedy Spanners team.
