The Experience behind Coby Autos in Dublin 22

  • Joe Coby

    Joe began his career in the car service industry working in a petrol station as a thirteen-year-old.

    He was there during the Petrol Strike of the 1970s, when petrol was so scarce that a petrol station that might’ve taken delivery of petrol at 3 am could have queues of anxious or irate customers lining up around the block 5 minutes later. As such he was usually the first person in and the last person to leave.

    Cars and particularly car electrics/electronics was a passion for Joe.

    He quickly became an expert in all areas of mechanics – particularly performance tweaking to get the best out of cars of all types. Part of this passion was fuelled by both Joe and Maurice’s keen interest in rallying, and for a time they owned their own rally cars and competed in various track day events at Mondello Park.

    Joe is our resident diagnostic and performance-enhancing expert.

    There isn’t very much he doesn’t know about engine performance, emissions, DPFs, tuning, or indeed any other aspect of car servicing. He (along with all our staff) is constantly upskilling and sees the next big thing in car servicing/repair being 3D printing – where garages will begin to print replacement parts on-site.

  • Maurice Coby

    In the mid-eighties, Maurice Coby began a small garage business on the Naas Road.

    Initially focussing on new / used tyre sales and puncture repairs, Maurice quickly earned a reputation for providing a top-class service at competitive prices – and as a result, the business grew steadily.

    Being ideally located on the busy Naas Road was a real advantage and as the business flourished, Maurice began to offer some light servicing facilities as well. While customers were having their tyres repaired or changed, they could also then have their oil and water checked, their wheels balanced, and so on.

    In the early days, the premises Coby Autos now calls home was too large for Maurice alone – so part of the building was sub-let to a mechanic. When that mechanic moved on Maurice came together with his brother Joe to seize the opportunity to grow the business by taking the next logical step.

    Coby Autos was established in 1987, quickly becoming a fully functioning car/van servicing and repair shop. They grew their staff – hiring their mechanics and investing in the latest technologies and equipment and the rest, as they say, is history.

  • David Coby

    David Coby is the first of the next generation of Coby Autos.

    From a young age, David would accompany his father into the garage on weekends and over his primary school summer holidays. Initially thinking that this was just a good way to earn some money when out of school, David showed a real flair and keen interest in all things car-related.

    On leaving school years later, David completed a four-year apprenticeship and became a full-time member of staff in 2008, and since then has constantly upskilled to keep abreast of all the latest developments in car systems and technology.
