A full detailed list is available in office if you would like more information.

Simply have your book stamped at regular service intervals to maintain your policy cover.




Dealers Statuatory Warranty

No Warranty exists for Vehicles priced under $3000. If in doubt about purchasing and to give you a better idea of the condition of the vehicle, have a mechanical inspection prior to purchase or purchase an extended warranty to give you some level of protection


Licenced Motor Vehicle dealers are required to provide a Statuatory Warranty on all vehicles, that are under 15 years old and have travelled less then 200,000kms, and are priced over $3000.

Depending on the price of the vehicle this warranty will give you protection for up to 3 months or 5000kms. Qualifying vehicles are noted.

 Vehicles over 15 years, or that have travelled more then 200,000kms or are priced under $3000 have no Warranty at all and you would need to purchase an extended Warranty, to have any level of protection.

Qualifying vehicles, will not be allowed any discount or trade ins. The listed price includes the “Statuatory Warranty” and is not negotiable. You have the right to waiver that Warranty if you choose. I’d be happy to provide you further information upon request.



Please ring or email  and book a time in advance, that you can be without your car. We need to ensure that there is enough room to park your vehicle as it can be a bit hectic here. Remember some repairs can take between 1 - 5 days to complete on average so make arrangements to be without your vehicle.


When bringing in your car at your pre-arranged time:

    Please bring your purchase paperwork, including contact information, a copy of your current registration papers and drivers licence of the purchaser, and a written explanation of repairs or issues that you would like dealt with. You will need to provide this in writing so we can pass it along to our repairer. Verbal reports are not acceptable orr helpful.

Diagnosis is not covered under warranty, so any costs involved in this are not always covered by warranty. Ensure that you do not leave valuables in the vehicle as we are not responsible for any losses incurred.

    Your vehicle will need to be returned to the place of purchase if you wish to have any repairs completed under Warranty. If the vehicle is unable to be driven without causing further damage or loss, then it will need to be towed. RAA will offer a towing service or towing is available if you have purchased "Roadside assistance." at point of purchase. I cannot arrange towing for the purpose of repairs.
