Log Book Servicing

Who wouldn’t want a car that runs like new for years? Keeping up with your car’s logbook servicing schedule is basically keeping your car maintained to its manufacturer’s standards. Here at A1 Mechanical Servicing & Repairs, we can perform your logbook service with no negative effect to your statutory warranty. Our fully qualified mechanics only use quality parts and products and we stamp your logbook as a record of service.

Vehicle Inspections & Safety Certificates

We’re fully licensed and qualified to perform vehicle inspections and safety certificate inspections for the Department of Motor Transport Queensland. You may need a safety certificate for a number of reasons, such as: You need to register your car after letting registration run out. You’re selling your vehicle, so need to have an inspection done. You’ve moved to Queensland from another state and need to re-register here. At A1 Mechanical Servicing & Repairs, we also have the ability to issue certificates of inspection for heavy vehicles (including tow trucks, buses etc), taxis and other hire cars, trailers and caravans. A certificate of inspection is a scheduled or periodic inspection of your vehicle. For all inspections and safety certificates, if you bring your vehicle in to us relatively free of engine grease and other debris, as well as neat and tidy inside and out, it allows us to easily access all the areas that need to be checked. This will make our job quicker and prevent the chance of needing a re-inspection.

Air Conditioning Servicing & Repairs

Nobody should have to suffer through those long, hot Cairns summers without air conditioning! If your air conditioner has stopped working properly, we can help. We are fully licensed and equipped to service, repair and re-gas air conditioning systems in all passenger vehicles, four-wheel drives and light commercial vehicles. We can have you feeling as cool as a cucumber in no time at all! Give us a call to book in for an air conditioning repair or service.

Brake & Clutch Repairs

Would you drive a car with no brakes? Then why risk driving one without ensuring your brakes and clutch are in perfect condition? Here at A1, we can repair, replace or service your brakes or clutch system so everything’s as good as new and as safe as can be. You may have noticed brake issues such as a grinding or squealing noise, decreased braking power, a shudder when you brake or slow down, or a loose handbrake. These are all common braking problems. Likewise, if you’ve noticed leaking fluid, you’ve had difficulty shifting gears, or you notice a funny smell in your car (that can’t be attributed to something your kids have left under the back seat!), then you may have an issue with your clutch. If you have any of these symptoms, if anything else is concerning you, or you simply want a brake check to ensure your car is as safe as it can be, then contact our friendly team and we’ll quote you a good price for the best quality mechanical work in Cairns. We will diagnose your brake or clutch problem and can check their current condition, replace parts for most makes and models and then test everything to make sure it’s in A1 condition. We only ever use top quality parts and products for all our services, so you can be sure that your safety is in the skilled hands of an experienced mechanic.

Steering & Suspension

A vehicle’s steering and suspension systems are hugely important. Steering problems can cause anything from a feeling of loose steering or less precise steering, to loss of steering that can cause you to lose control! Your suspension is responsible for ensuring you have a smooth, comfortable ride while driving. It also prevents jolts to your car’s components. If your suspension has issues, your vehicle will drive harshly over the road and you’ll feel every little bump. Both steering and suspension components can become worn over time and this can cause handling problems. At A1 Mechanical Servicing & Repairs, we can efficiently check and replace any worn steering/suspension parts. This will have you driving smoothly and comfortably in no time at all!

Vehicle Servicing

We offer not only logbook servicing in Cairns, but also general vehicle servicing. We offer two types of general vehicle servicing – a minor service and a major service. For older vehicles, minor vehicle services should be undertaken a couple of times per year, with a major service every year or so. For cars that are used off-road or under other extreme conditions, this should be done more often. By servicing your car, you ensure that everything is functioning as it should, which will keep you and your passengers safe on the road. A service consists of one of our highly qualified mechanics checking crucial areas of your vehicle – such as the engine, brakes and suspension and other important parts – to identify and fix any issues. This not only helps your car continue to run smoothly for longer, but also identifies any small problems before they become serious. Vehicle’s with full service histories are also worth more when you want to sell or upgrade them, so that’s a bonus! We only use high quality aftermarket components to maximise your vehicle’s reliability without costing you a fortune
