About AutoMotiveLad

My name is Jaco Schrader, founder of Automotivelad.com. 

Having launched in early 2022, the goal of this website is to share information about everything related to automobiles, from personalization to facts, and maintenance.

I believe the world needs access to a place where they know they will get the right information for anything automotive.

History of our business

I started my own business in Namibia, Africa back in 2012 focusing mainly on automotive glass replacement and repairs.

In 2015 installing a Toyota 1UZ-FE 4.0 V8 in my Ford Sierra drift car.

The business later expanded to auto-electrical work, automotive repairs, and even some fabrication, all of that I learned myself through trial and error.

After moving to Europe in late 2017 I tried many different works but to no avail, and in 2022 I realized that I can help people with my automotive knowledge.

I even tried my hand at being a YouTuber with my channel Driftbuddy.

While working on this site I freelance and write other automotive articles for websites like suvhelp.com.

With over 6 years of hands-on experience in the automotive sector, I have enough knowledge to provide good-quality information.
