About Us

The vehicle service station at the Top of the Hill has been the local go-to WOF shop since the late 1980s. Specialists in WOF’s, COF’s and oil changes. Experienced automotive expert Grant O’Donoghue bought the business in 2019 and continues to provide the same great service, with the same great team, in the same brilliantly handy location.

“We provide the best service, at great prices. We’re super-friendly, and we’re local. Come in and see us!”
