The LubeVan Team : Greater than the sum of it's parts!
"Captain" Ratko Jankovic - Technician
Ratko‘s passion for cars started at a young age learning how to spell words like Chrysler and Mercedes before he began to help his dad service the family vehicle. In school, he was always known as the kid that knew everything about cars.
This passion has inspired him to complete a degree in Mechanical Engineering from Ryerson University and allows him to combine engineering principles to deliver a service that maintains the highest standards of quality and integrity. His attention to detail is apparent with each vehicle he services and is highlighted by his fleet of personal vehicles, with one approaching half a million kilometers! Previous experience at the Toronto Parking Authority highlights his ability to ensures that every client is taken care of to the highest of standard with a calm, friendly and professional approach.
Applying his technical skills to the LubeVan organization allows for a sustainable organization to continue to grow and ensure we deliver the best possible oil change with no compromise to your schedule.

Robert Martin - Technician & Owner of LubeVan Hamilton
Since childhood Robert has always had the inquisition to understand the operation of mechanics. This curiosity turned into a passion of spinning wrenches.
In 2008, Robert began helping people through emergency services in a professional capacity.
Then in 2013, around a campfire, the LubeVan was presented to him. The idea of being able to help people, combined with the passion for cars was a perfect match. And, he began working with LubeVan in the GTA.
Robert is a firm believer that one gets out of their vehicle what they put into it; a testament to this motto is his 2002 Honda Civic - the first vehicle he bought. He routinely completes maintenance and she’s still his daily driver at over 380,000km!
After, several years of turning wrenches from the LubeVan to keep customers moving in the GTA, Robert decided to bring the LubeVan to Hamilton to bring his passion closer to home.
