Frequently Asked Questions
Will I know how much the car service or car repair will end up or will I get a big surprise?
After an initial inspection the mechanic will show you a written estimate of work required and associated costs - you are always in control of the cost and will not get a nasty surprise. If the job looks like it will go over our original estimate we will contact you first before proceeding, that's all part of our no surprise guarantee.
How does your pricing work?
We have fixed price servicing and for any additional work we make a point of providing written estimates before work commences on your vehicle. If you know what is wrong with your car, we can give you an estimate over the phone - or you can contact us to see just how good our prices are.
This depends upon what you need. We always strive to give you a fixed price up front and let you be in control of costs. If you are unsure what is wrong, and need a mechanic to check, we have a Repair Call Out of $80.50 (including GST) which includes 30 minutes of labour. After this, we then charge a reasonable hourly rate in 15 Minute increments. You won't pay any more unless you agree to our price estimate. (The Repair Call Out Fee doesn't apply to services or repairs with a service.)
Do I have to pay on the day of the job?
Yes. Payment needs to be made at the completion of the job. We accept EFTPOS and all major Credit Cards, except for American Express.
