Keith's staff have a professional, common sense approach to keeping us safe and our cars well serviced

Keith and his team are a friendly bunch who go out of their way to help you get your car back on the road safe and sound. They offer a loaner car which is great so you can keep on running your business. Nothing is ever a problem - My whole family wouldn't take our cars anywhere else.

Thanks Keith and the team for my recent service and the extra brake check. Friendly, professional and peace of mind that my brakes are working well.

I've heard Keith talk as guest speaker a number of times and have been impressed by his knowledge and the technology Motor Works uses. So, when my much loved Opel Vectra clicked over 170,000kms I decided it was time to book it in with Keith. For sometime (probably a year or two!) it's had a pesky oil leak with no obvious source. The team water blasted the engine and asked me to bring it back in a couple of weeks (also having identified and replacing a perished hose). Fast forward two weeks and the car was back at Motor Works. The oil leak was attended to and the car had a full service. I also had the convenience of one of their courtesy car's for the day. To sum up, problem solved, friendly and knowledgeable service in a timely manner! :)
