I couldn't Express more gratefully there help with our oil problem thanks so much excellent service

- Elaine W April 2021

We arrived at Franz Josef to discover a disaster in our caravan (which is our full time home), wires shorted and melted and no power at all, lucky to have not had a massive fire. Lochie and Jono to the rescue! These guys made a very stressful situation into an enjoyable experience, fixing it all up for us whilst giving loads of handy hints about this beautiful west coast. Very professional and great service. Totally recommend this company.

They were our real help in this remote area of NZ. Franz Josef is a beautiful place to visit but when your vehicle breaks down you will not remember anything like this. They helped us to change oil filter and diagnose dashboard engine light. Service with a smile. Thank you
