Our Services

Repairs and Servicing

We specialise in imported vehicles both of Japanese origin or more recently European vehicles. We have worked with some of the major car dealer franchises in Christchurch and have worked on in excess of 10,000 vehicles during the last seven years.

This means that because of the diverse range and the large number of vehicles we see, most problems associated with your vehicle we have encountered and are familiar with.
