What we can do for you

With extensive knowledge and special tools required to work on a vast array of vehicles, we offer a unique, efficient and reliable alternative to the factory dealers. Our passion is working on classic vehicles usually outside the scope of the dealer. You can rest assured that your classic or prestige vehicle will be in experienced hands, as we have most likely owned one ourselves.

Pre purchase inspections. We work on a flat hourly rate. You just tell us how long you want us to spend checking your vehicle. We suggest a minimum of 2 hours.

We offer "e-safety" Pinkslips and Blueslips for cars, motor cycles and trailers. Please visit the RTA Website.

We also offer a selection of used vehicles for sale. Please visit Vehicles for Sale.

Often these cars come with 1-3 year's warranty of your choice. Please visit our warranty supplier for more information. All our vehicles are serviced and sold with a road worthy certificate.
