My passion for Automobile and vehicle repairs could be traced to my late Uncle; a motor vehicle repairer by profession.

This won't have been achieved without hard work and dedication in every area of my endeavours. The birth of Billico Motors Enterprises in Ebana village, Eket LGA, a fully equipped automobile company has every digitalalize equipments, specialize workforce/experts to offer the best in automobile Services.

Q: Which other Automobile company have you worked with that might have helped  sharpened your experiences and knowledge in Automobile repairs and maintenance?

We started just like what people refer to as "roadside Vehicle repairs workshop"  but in 2011, Billico Motors Enterprises was registered with corporate Affairs Commission (CAC),  and today, Billico Motors,  a branch of Billico Groups is that dream which has become a reality.
