Logbook Servicing​

When buying a new vehicle, the warranty that comes with it offers drivers a certain level of protection from unexpected expenses early in the vehicle’s life. To maintain this protection, it’s expected that you bring your vehicle to a reputable mechanic for regularly scheduled logbook servicing.​

We’re able to provide logbook servicing for all makes and models of passenger car and light commercial vehicle, covering petrol and diesel powered vehicles. We’ll let you know of any developing mechanical problems, and you’ll drive away with an intact warranty.

Steering & Suspension

When taking your vehicle off-road, having a suspension system ready to handle the bumps and shocks of an unsealed driving surface is essential to comfortable driving. It’s just as vital to ensure your steering system is in good condition.

We can offer customers comprehensive servicing and repairs for their steering and suspension systems, from steering repairs to replacement of key suspension components, including car springs (leaf and coil), shock absorbers and bushing. We can also install lift kits and suspension upgrades for 4×4 vehicles.

We’re able to conduct repairs for your vehicle’s entire drivetrain, from clutch pedal and cabling to replacing your vehicle’s manual or automatic transmission unit. We can also conduct transmission fluid changes, to keep your gearbox in top working condition.
