DSCN1596.JPGAbout us

Chris has worked extensively in the automotive repair industry for over 25 years throughout Sydney. He sold his successful mechanical business in the outer northern suburbs to relocate to Geelong in 2013. He relocated to Highton with Deborah, his partner who you may see in the office and their two children, who are really enjoying the beaches in the summer!

Chris is a family man who loves his sports (League, AFL and cricket) and believes in supporting other local business and enjoys being involved in the community.

Chris believes in building a loyal client base, through offering honest, reliable servicing and advice. He is very much a ‘people’ person and believes you can’t put a price on genuine customer service. Chris is more than happy to talk to you about your car and keep you informed of what may be needed in the future and what can be put on hold until absolutely necessary.

Chris stays up to date with developments in the automotive industry and has the most up to date diagnostic equipment suitable for all vehicle makes and models. He has a wealth of knowledge in the tyre industry, having being store manager in the past at Goodyear and Beaurepaires stores, so has a proven expertise in tyre selection for your car.

Also for a number of years Chris was workshop manager at Pacific Motors in Killara, which was one of the largest European car service centres in Sydney, specialising in Volvo, Saab, BMW and Mercedes.

Chris is a fully qualified Child Car Restraint fitter, having undertaken an extensive course with Mobility Engineering. He has installed hundreds of different baby capsules as in NSW it is a legal requirement to have a signed certificate of professional installation before leaving hospital with your new baby.

Chris believes in looking after your car with regular servicing - even if it’s just a quick oil change and fluid levels check, as it will make a big difference to how the car runs and avoid major problems in the future.

Also, many thanks to the businesses and friends who have helped us get the workshop looking fantastic and our business up and running…..
