Meet The Team
Former retained firefighter Martin Hambidge is the owner of Just Right Autos, and has built the company to where it is today.
A Witney boy born and bred, Martin began his career at Kernahans in Witney at the age of 13, washing cars. He went on to do a mechanic apprenticeship there and worked for the MG Rover brand before moving on to VW Audi and independent garages.
Martin’s career took an exciting turn when he joined the Oxfordshire fire service as a mechanic in 2005, giving him wide experience with a variety of vehicles and challenges. He ran mechanic workshops for fire service professionals.
Then Martin became a retained firefighter at Witney fire station, facing many risky situations and serving the community.
After stepping back from the fire service workshops in 2010 to start Just Right Autos, Martin’s commitment to the fire service continued, and he served as a retained firefighter for another two years.
Martin’s vision for Just Right Autos was to service and maintain vehicles at a fair price with honest and trustworthy mechanics, and that vision continues today, going from strength to strength.
Just Right Autos aims to provide as many high-quality automotive services under one roof as possible. This includes an MOT bay, specialist wheel alignment equipment, tyre machines and air conditioning equipment, all in-house.
In his spare time, Martin enjoys walking and time away at the coast. He also has a passion for all things Volkswagen and owns and builds various classic VWs and camper vans.
This passion inspired another business venture for Martin, Skyline Campers, where he rehauls all sorts of classic VW campervans.
Adele is a Partner at Just Right Autos. Like her husband Martin, she has a background in the emergency services, having previously worked as a crew member for St John’s Ambulance before joining Just Right Autos.

Outside of work, Adele and Martin love to explore the UK in their classic T4 VW campervan.
