Paul started his apprenticeship in 1991 working for Metro Ford in Porirua, After completing his apprenticeship he worked for Barry Jackson Toyota in Wellington and was rewarded for his attention to detail and quality workmanship with a promotion to workshop team leader. Paul soon realised that he wanted to own his own business, so to further his knowledge on all makes and models as well as learning how a small workshop was operated he worked for Vogel Motor Services till the opportunity came for him to start Hutt City Auto Services in 2001. Hutt City Auto Services quickly outgrew the Melling building and in 2003 opened a Trade division workshop in Raroa Road, Lower Hutt. Operating two separate workshops was not ideal and in 2008 Hutt City Auto Services moved to its current location in Pretoria street.
