Garage equipment advice and service NZ-wide

We supply top-quality robust and reliable vehicle hoists, including 2-post, 4-post and mobile types ideal for dealerships and large auto repair shops, to specialised lifts for low workshop ceilings. We also supply premium equipment for vehicle testing and inspection.

We’ve got top-rated exhaust tube benders, vehicle AC service machines, and tyre, wheel, and brake servicing equipment. Where necessary, the power supply on imported machinery is converted for safe operation in New Zealand.

He can visit your site anywhere in New Zealand to advise you about the appropriate size and type of service equipment to install in your garage for your available space and requirements.
