MECHANICAL REPAIR.

We are a comprehensive light vehicle mechanical repair workshop. Our staff is fully qualified to provide all facets of mechanical maintenance to any make and model, both petrol and diesel.

WHY CHOOSE 1st CHOICE MECHANICAL REPAIRS?

1st Choice Mechanical Repairs is about the overall experience from when you walk in or call us. We will provide you with our honest and straight forward advice approach. Most times you are talking to one of the technicians or have the ability to talk directly to a technician if desired. Customer service is our number 1 priority. Delivering quality service and repairs at an affordable and reasonable price is what you expect and what we will deliver. Specifically, vehicle servicing whilst under manufacturer’s warranty can be done at any licenced workshop, we want you in our workshop where you are given a fair go and the equivalent job is completed at a much more reasonable price than the dealer. We have the same experience if not more, we have the same equipment in most cases and guarantee to beat their servicing costs.
