Why should a customer hire you over another service provider?
We are a friendly team who make servicing and repairing your vehicle easier. We take the time to explain the issues clearly and will call you if there is any additional work to be done. This work must be approved by you for us to continue above the initial quote.

The workshop is an Accredited Inspection Station. This means that we are licensed by Queensland Transport to assure that safe vehicles are on the road. Our interest is in keeping you and your family safe on the road.
What questions should a customer ask to hire the right service professional?
Ask if they are a fully qualified mechanic. There is no law stating that a mechanical workshop has to have a fully qualified mechanic. Always ask to see accreditations, then you know your car is in trained hands.

What do you like most about your job?
Fixing peoples cars and the reaction of the customer when they get into their car and that awful noise is gone or it drives so much better than before. The customer's satisfaction is the thing I like most about what we do.
Do you have a favourite customer story you would like to share?
We had a customer who was looking at buying a Ferrari 360 Modena and requested that we have a look at it for him. The Pre-Purchase Inspection that was carried out showed a lot more problems with the vehicle than what met the eye. In the end we advised against the purchase because the customer would have to spend a lot of money to fix up the vehicle from oil leaks to replacing tyres.
Is there a particular aspect of your trade or industry that you specialise in?
We specialise in Safety Certificates also known as Road Worthy Certificates both in a fixed location and a mobile service. We can come to you. We offer Pre-Purchase Inspections which makes it especially easier for interstate buyers. We specialised in servicing all makes and models including European and Japanese vehicles.
How do you normally charge for your service?
Service work is charged on a hourly rate plus parts. Mobile Safety Certificate Inspections are quoted as per the job as it depends on the type of vehicle and its location.

How did you decide to get into your line of work?
We are passionate about cars. We realise that people have little time left over at the end of their busy day. Our job is to get them back onto the road as quickly as we can.
