Logbook Servicing

To maintain the protection of your warranty, it’s expected that you bring your vehicle to a reputable mechanic for regularly scheduled logbook servicing.

We can conduct logbook servicing on all petrol, diesel and LPG vehicles, checking them inside and out for faults and flaws that might develop into serious problems for your vehicles if left unresolved. Once given the all clear, you’ll drive away with the peace of mind that comes with an intact warranty.

Vehicle Inspections

A Warrant of Fitness is a regular check to ensure your vehicle meets required road safety standards. It’s up to the driver to keep their vehicle up to WOF condition at all times. The frequency at which your vehicle will require WOF inspections varies between 6 months to 3 years, depending on the age of the vehicle.

As a certified WOF agent we can provide warrant inspections for all makes and models of vehicles, covering the condition of your tyres, brakes, safety features and other important areas of your vehicle, to ensure they meet the minimum standard for vehicles on the road.

Brake Repairs

Your brakes are your vehicle’s most important safety feature, with the potential to make the difference between an emergency stop and an expensive trip to a panel beater. It’s also one of the areas of your vehicle most susceptible to wear and tear, particularly with the stop-start nature of urban driving.

We can conduct a host of brake repairs for all makes and models of vehicles. We can replace worn brake pads, discs and drums, or machine the surface of your existing brake parts for longer life. We can also check your brake hydraulics for leaks and make repairs to cables and pedals to ensure your vehicle has all the stopping power it needs.

Steering & Suspension

Most ride comfort and handling issues stem from problems with your vehicle’s steering and suspension systems. These might present as play in the steering wheel or body roll when going around corners.

Our team can provide replacement parts for worn suspension systems, from car springs and shock absorbers to bushing. We can also repair power steering systems and other issues in the steering column.

Exhaust Repairs

Problems with your vehicle’s exhaust can lead to your engine recycling spent engine fumes, leading to a build up of engine deposits that could cripple your vehicle’s power and fuel efficiency. Engine fumes can also get into the vehicle cabin, posing a danger to you and your passengers.

We can provide a range of replacement stock model exhaust parts, or recommend from a range of aftermarket mufflers, headers, extractors and more to improve air flow through your vehicle.

Clutch & Transmission

Your vehicle’s transmission is an intricate piece of engineering. Problems with it can very quickly spiral out of control if not found and repaired quickly. If you’re having trouble finding gears when on the road, it’s best to have your vehicle checked out for transmission problems sooner rather than later.

We can service and repair all manual and automatic transmissions, as well as source replacement units. We’ll also conduct repairs on your vehicle’s differential and CV joint, ensuring efficient and even distribution of power to your wheels with minimal loss of control.

Engine Repairs

Your engine is the beating heart of your vehicle; issues here can have a drastic toll on your vehicle’s performance and fuel efficiency.

We can provide a range of engine repairs for all makes and models, including rebuilds, recondiitioning and testing. We can clean and repair engine blocks, cylinder heads and camshafts, as well as provide EFI diagnostics and tuning.

Radiators & Cooling Systems

An overheating engine can very quickly become a serious problem for your vehicle, leading to a breakdown that could leave your vehicle stranded. If you think your vehicle’s overheating, arrange for one of our team to check your vehicle’s cooling system as soon as possible.

We can provide repairs and replacement of faulty radiator units, heater units, thermostats and head gaskets. We can also conduct coolant flushes to dislodge any internal blockages interfering with your cooling.

Auto Electrical

WIth vehicles becoming more and more sophisticated, it takes a dedicated auto electrician to keep up wiht the latest in electrical repair techniques and equipment.

We can provide a range of electrical services for yuour vehicle, from diagnostic scans to help us expedite repairs to testing and replacing of batteries, alternators and starter motors. We can also fit a range of accessories, including solar panels and dual battery systems.

Tyres & Wheels

We can provide a range of tyres of all makes and models of passenger car, 4×4 and light truck to best suit your needs. We can also fit and balance them to your vehicle, as well as conduct wheel alignments to ensure you get the absolute most out of your new tyres.

Wheel Alignment

Tremors in the steering wheel while driving is a common sign of poorly aligned tyres. This means that your vehicle is focusing its weight on only part of your tyres rather than across their full surface, which leads to looser control of your vehicle, uneven tyre wear and potentially even faster blowouts.

We have the equipment on hand to ensure your wheels are balanced perfectly when fitted back onto your vehicle, for optimal control on the road and maximum value for money out of your tyres.

Roadside Assistance

If you find yourself stranded by the side of the road anywhere in the Hamilton area, we can help you get your vehicle moving again with our roadside assistance vehicle. We can provide rudimentary services for your vehicle to either get you back on the road, or at the very least as far as our workshop for more intense repairs.
