Cairns Mechanic Recommendations
« on: January 30, 2019, 07:44:27 AM »
Can any locals give a recommendation for a mechanic or inspection station/facility.
My son lives in Cairns & is looking to buy a car & being a musician he knows sfa about cars & value. He thinks he'll be safer going through a dealer, but if he can find a good private deal then he will need somewhere to get it checked out.
Just need somewhere that's thorough & give an honest assessment.

Thanks in advance

          Id suggest you try Gavins Mobile Auto Care (
Hes an all round good guy - Ive used him over the years on cars, utes and the camper trailer. His rates are reasonable and he offers mobile and workshop services.
He does get a bit booked up at times but he's always helped me out.
PM if you need anymore help.

Hi Goshen, RACQ Garages used to one the best to get an inspection done on a 4wd or car, but not cheap, your son may have to join to get a bit of a discount, Craig
