Irish Mike and wife Alicia

IRISH MIKE, OWNER OF COLORADO FLEETWORKS

My name is Mike and I’m the owner of Colorado Fleetworks. I was born and raised in Belfast, Northern Ireland. I moved to the United States in 2012 to be with my wife, Alicia, whom I met while vacationing in Portugal in 2008. I have an extensive background in all things mechanical and auto related and I have been in the auto industry in one form or another since my teens. 

Here are the major positions I have held:

  • From 1996 to 2006, I was formally trained and worked as an auto mechanic of primarily diesel vehicles in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
  • In 2006, I opened and operated an excavation and groundworks business in Belfast, Northern Ireland. I serviced and repaired my equipment.
  • When I moved to the US in 2012, I worked as a mechanic on foreign vehicles like Land Rovers and Sprinters and Pinzgauers, and then later moved on to large commercial truck service and repair.
  • In 2015, I went out on my own and opened an auto mechanic business, where I performed a wide range of mechanic work from engine rebuilds to service and maintenance. I am excellent in diagnosing and repairing domestic and foreign, gas and diesel, personal and commercial vehicles. I also did light auto body work.
  • In 2016, I obtained a retail dealer license and started selling cars and doing my own repair work to restore cars to their original condition.
  • In 2019, I became extremely interested in paintless dent removal (PDR) and hail repair. I trained extensively (approximately 200 hours) one-on-one with Myke Toledo, the owner of Dent Time in San Diego, CA, and have since apprenticed in dent removal to further develop my skills. I am very active in the PDR community and am fortunate to have a lot of support by other PDR business owners across the country and the world!
  • In 2020, I started focusing on big van and truck repair because I saw a need due to delivery vans becoming more prevalent and due to the increase in popularity of van life due to COVID. I specialize in Sprinter vans and work on all makes and models of big vans and trucks. I am excellent at diagnosing issues and making proper repairs. 

For me, anything automotive is a passion. Having a love for what you do makes it more than an occupation!
