Doing the GCR, Alice, Plenty etc to Qld from Perth at the end of the mth and need the Troopy's 100k service before we go.

Somewhere in the inner north-west area of Perth if possible.

People like me are forever asking for mechanics on here as they travel around. Always wondered why there isn't a member's recommended mechanics register of sorts on here. I've got about seven I can start it with, anywhere from Brisbane over to Broome.

Greetings John,

Can recommend two in Perth, one NOR and one SOR.

Robson Brothers in Bentley, maybe not quite North West.
Robson Bros

Armadale 4WD Service Centre, definately NOT North West.
Armadale 4WD Service Centre

Don't say you were recommended, otherwise you may be charged "mates rates" ............... ie; double the bill and take 4% off ......... LOL

Cheers,
Wayne & Sally.

I can recommend Robson Bros also they are in Bentley which is just South of the river, easy to get to via the freeway, polypipe and Orrong Road.

Very professional outfit, did my valve clearances for me at a reasonable price. When I was there I saw plenty of serious 4WD,s which gave me confidence.

Another person I can recommend from personal experience is Darren Crock of Ocean Reef Service Centre, he is a Toyota trained guy who now operates a mobile service, Ocean Reef is definitely North West of the city.

Cheers

Thks Col, would you have a number for Darren. I can see a number for 'Ocean Reef Mobile Mechanical Services' but there's no Darren there.

Hi john

When in Perth I book my car into Emerald Motors the Bridgestone agent in Joondalup. Vince is the boss & is an honest mechanic, he has a long term crew that are good reliable mechanics.

The only problem I ever have with them is that it sometimes takes a couple of weeks to get the car in.
