Our aim is to take the hassle out of caring for your car. For people working in the Silverdale Industrial Park we can take care of WOF, servicing and repairs while you are at work. We can pick up and drop off locally or we can arrange a courtesy car. We're happy to quote for jobs before hand and can put together the best service schedule to suit your needs and budget.

Whats New?

We are hearing more reports from customers about being pulled up for roadside checks by the police. Having a bulb out incurrs a $150 fine which is often waived if the bulb is fixed within 14 days and proof of this is provided.

One of the most important checks any driver should do is a regular check of the tyres for correct tyre pressure and tread depth. 1.5mm is the legal minimum tread depth, any less and you will not pass a WoF inspection. .

As your tyres wear and tread depth decreases, your grip reduces and stopping distances increase in wet condition.

For more information go to or call in and see us, we're only too happy to help.
