  • Vehicle Servicing




  • These are things each of us ask of our vehicle day in and day out. It doesn't matter if it is just a few months old or many years old, we continue to expect these things from our car, truck or caravan.

    But, to ensure that your vehicle is safe, stable and reliable, you have to do your part - you must provide it with regular servicing and preventative maintenance. This becomes much more important as your car gets older.

    Let us help!

  • The average age of cars being driven on public roads is increasing in western countries. This rise in car age is likely to result in a increased risk of injury in a car accident, with a New Zealand study finding

    passengers in cars built prior to 1984

    had a three times higher risk of injury

    compared with those in cars built after 1994

    - it is very important to have regular preventative maintenance checks and repairs before the need arises, which could not only put lives at risk, but also cost significantly more.
