With most new vehicles, part of the value you’re paying for is the warranty, which protects you the buyer from any expenses resulting from manufacturer’s faults early in the vehicle’s life. To keep the protection of your warranty for as long as possible, it’s expected that your vehicle undergoes regularly scheduled servicing from a reputable mechanic.
We conduct logbook servicing for all makes and models of petrol, diesel, LPG, electric and hybrid vehicles, warning you of any issues in your vehicle before they impact your vehicle too heavily. You’ll also drive away from our workshop with the peace of mind of having an intact warranty.Book your next service with us today!
Before selling, trading, transferring ownership, or re-registering your vehicle from interstate with Queensland’s Department of Transport and Main Roads, it first must undergo a safety inspection and be issued with a Safety Certificate. To drivers from other states, these are similar to an E-Safety Check or a Roadworthy Certificate.
As a TMR approved inspection station we can conduct roadworthy inspections on all makes and models of light vehicles and certify a vehicle as roadworthy. We can also conduct pre-purchase inspections, to ensure that you get your money’s worth when buying your next used car, and pre-trip inspections to catch any lingering issues before you set off on your next big holiday.Arrange an inspection with us today!
Your brakes are arguably the most important safety feature in your vehicle, often making the difference between a harmless emergency stop and an expensive trip to the panel beater.

We offer a range of brake services for all makes and models of vehicles, including replacement and restoration of brake pads, discs and drums, as well as machining of new pads and restorations to extend the life of your existing brake discs.Talk to our team today!

We can offer customers repairs for their existing exhaust solution, and the option of replacing their stock model parts with an aftermarket muffler, header and extractor. We can also replace spent filters to ensure clean air flow through your engine bay.Talk to our team today!
Radiators & Cooling
Keeping your engine cool is important for maintaining a healthy vehicle. On the other hand, an overheating engine can spell disaster for your vehicle. If you think your vehicle might be overheating, the best thing to do is either pull over immediately or drive very carefully to your nearest workshop for an inspection of your cooling system.
We’re able to provide a host of services to your cooling system, from leak checks to replacement of faulty hosing, seals or radiator units, as well as repairing damaged head gaskets. We can also conduct coolant flushes, to dislodge any blockages that might be hampering your cooling system’s effectiveness.Talk to our team today!
