Cairns Car Servicing
Inadequate maintenance & servicing of your motor vehicle seriously increases the risk of catastrophic mechanical failure!
Whether you own a racing car or a standard family car your vehicle requires regular servicing to ensure peak performance, lower running costs and reduced chance of failure. As a rule, the higher the performance requirements of your car, the more servicing and maintenance is required. To give you an understanding of this concept, drag cars have their engines completely overhauled after almost every run, while a small family car that is hardly used may only require an oil change or minor service every 1-2 years.
Our complete car service from $180
Please note that it is difficult to give you exact pricing for servicing and any other work without knowing the age, make and model of your vehicle. The cost of our complete service starts around $180 and will be different for every vehicle due to many factors. Here are a couple of examples... Some vehicles have a larger sump and thus will require more oil during an oil change or because of the type of engine will require a more expensive oil. Some vehicles, although they have the same amount of cylinders, will require a more expensive type of sparkplug. These may range from $5 to $35 each depending on the vehicle requirements. Some vehicles have larger radiators and will require a lot more coolant when flushing the radiator. There are many of these factors which will change the price of your service. We do however, try our best to keep your costs down and will recommend the cheaper options where applicable.

Please note that our complete service is not as comprehensive as some logbook servicing requirements, but all aspects of applicable logbook servicing are carried out to the manufacturer's specifications according to the time frames therein.
Our logbook servicing will NOT void your warranty!
In Australia manufacturers are not allowed to exclusively hold you to their own workshops in order for you to keep your warranty. Every new car comes with a logbook and it is this magical item that holds the key to your new car warranty. In your logbook it will have milestone service requirements that must be performed to keep your car in top and warrantable condition.
The price charged for a logbook service is dependent on the condition of your car and also on the recommended inclusions from your vehicles manufacturer. We will provide you with a fixed-price quote based on the vehicle and service type when you make your booking, so you will know exactly how much the logbook Service will cost.
What is the difference between each service?
The main difference between any so called major service, minor service or logbook service is that in a major service (which could also be termed a logbook service) certain components on the vehicle need to be checked or replaced that under normal circumstances either don't need checking or replacing. For example the oil in an automatic gearbox is not recommended for change by some manufacturers until around 150,000 km and some even say never. Others recommend that it be changed around 50,000 - 75,000km. It is important however to make the distinction between checking and changing. It is important to check all systems for minor failures and leaks and failing to do so can put you and your family at risk.
