Bit of a spin off from this thread -




List your preferred mechanic/garage for auto repairs. 




Name of garage/mechanic, location, mini review ?




Automotive Services and Tyres, Whangaparaoa -


Been using these guys for a few years now (3 vehicles over the years), never had any issues with their work. Always happy to discuss issues with the vehicle before booking it in.

apex automotive, porana road on the shore.


If I listed just a few of the "above and beyond" moments that I have seen these guys pull out of the hat, you would accuse me of exaggeration.


They know their stuff and they also know that if they are straight and never pull a fast one, they will have so much custom that there will be no need to try to generate extra work.
