Log Book Servicing
Vehicle servicing is carried out to ensure that your car operates reliably and efficiently and is maintained to maximise the life span of the vehicle.
The log book itself contains all information for your vehicle’s service requirements for around the first 200,000km. It will let your mechanic know exactly what needs to be serviced at that specific service interval.
When we service a vehicle we also: Lubricate The Doors, Check Tyres Including Spare, Align Washer Jets, Fill Washer Bottle. Check Wiper Blades. Check All Lights, Fluids , Filters, Belts And Brakes. Grease Ball Joints, Tie Rods, Universals, Tail Shaft Slipper Joint, Steering Stop, And/or Cv Shafts. Change Oil Filter And Oil Check For Leaks. Carry Out Safety Check. Then we do a list of what your vehicle is due for and when, so you get to choose whether or not you want it done.
A mechanical failure on the open road can have devastating consequences, especially if a critical part of the braking, steering or suspension is involved. Regular servicing identifies potentially dangerous wear on the vital steering and braking components in your car.

Caravan and Trailer Servicing
Just like your car, every Caravan, Trailer or Horse float needs regular servicing and maintenance. It is quite a distressing sight to see a caravan or trailer by the side of a road with a wheel missing or some other state of disrepair.
Brake Service – Brake Fluid
Brake Service Includes disc pad or brake shoe replacement on front or rear wheel, using quality pads. We can also provide disc and drum machining.
Regularly changing the brake fluid in your car allows safe brake operation and can also save money. Brake fluid transfers the pressure you apply of the brake pedal to the brakes at the wheels of your car.
Radiator Fluid and Cooling System
Is your car over heating? You may need a radiator flush to get your car back to peak performance. The radiator is designed to be your vehicles cooling system by pumping coolant around the engine to stop it from overheating and the engine blocks from warping, cracking or seizing under extreme heat.
We pressure-test the radiator, inspect hoses for leaks, radiator cap for proper sealing, check coolant level, check water pump for leaks or wear and all drive belts for tension and condition.
Timing Belt Replacement
Also known as a camshaft drive belt or cam belt, timing belts are toothed rubber belts used in the majority of vehicles on the road today. It is propelled by the engine’s crankshaft and drives the camshaft, which then opens and closes the valves of the engine.
We test and inspect all suspension components for wear including ball joints, shock absorbers, control arms, bushes and McPherson struts. Any parts extra.
