Warrant of Fitness
A warrant of fitness (WOF) is a 12 monthly ( year 2000 or newer ) or 6 Monthly ( year 2000 or older ) safety check which ensures your vehicle is safe to operate on the roads. We can sort this for you, including any repairs big or small and even send you reminders when its due again!
As a General rule we recommend you book in for a Professional comprehensive service check every 6 months or 10,000km
(whichever comes first ) Every manufacturer is slightly different however give us a call and we can let you know when yours is due and send a reminder if that suits for you.
Cambelts (timing belts) are a VITAL part of your engine’s components, and these need to be replaced from time to time.
All manufacturers have different replacement intervals so feel free to give us a call or stop in and we can check if yours has been done, or the interval it needs to be done at.
Clutch feeling spongy, slipping, hard to engage gears?
These are all signs of a bad/worn clutch and could require replacement or adjustment. Feel free to stop in and we can give you an obligation free check/quote.
Clunking, whining, crunching?
These are all pretty obvious signs that something is wrong however even slight noise can sometimes be fixed before it becomes a major repair.

I was sitting in my car reading how to change a flat tyre yesterday. Dylan pulled up next to me, knocked on the window and offered to change the tyre and did just that.
I am guessing he was just passing through Taupo with his family.
His kindness really made my day – I felt like I had to share this with your company.
