In November 2016 Expert Automotive was born. Founded by Eugene Van Rooyen - a seasoned professional from the automotive industry who brought with him several years experience in managing small, medium and large automotive workshops. He is a qualified petrol and diesel mechanic by trade (1999), and a WOF inspector appointed by the NZTA. Not many automotive workshops benefit from its leadership possessing such extensive experience and qualifications, the benefits of which are evident in the quality of the work leaving the workshop.
A new beginning with experienced staff from the industry along with a clear direction for the business quickly attracted a new customer base exceeding 100 new customers per month. Providing these customers with quality workmanship at affordable prices meant customers kept coming back and the business quickly outgrew its premises and a larger workshop with more parking was necessary.
Excellence in customer service is the key to our success. The business is managed on a day to day basis by its owners meaning each customer receives VIP treatment.
In May 2017 adequate premises were secured at 26 Hillside Road, Wairau Valley. 3 new clear floor hoists were purchased along with new modern tyre fitment and balancing machines. Our welding gear was also updated to 3-phase industrial equipment capable of MIG, TIG and ARC welding. Access at our new premises is a significant improvement over our old premises, with easy motorway access and space for up to 20 vehicles on site. Our customer waiting area seats 5 people and should you prefer to take a short wander around the area, we have bakeries, coffee shops, McDonalds, Subway and other eateries walking distance from the workshop.
Find us down the driveway past Robertson & Sinclair
Another busy day at the workshop!
