For Everything Your Car Needs
Mr Brakes began around thirty-five years ago, principally to service the brake and clutch requirements of local motorists. In those days everything was done in-house, such as: bonding linings, machining and sleeving cylinders and so on. These days all replacement items are new. The only refurbishment that is carried out is on older classic cars.
The current owner, Brian Canny bought the business in 1998. After a career as a local newsagent, spanning thirty years, in the Wendouree area and prior to that as accountant with local firms. An interest in cars and motor sport brought him into the automotive game. Brian competes in both tarmac and gravel rallies, refer his blog under this heading and all the rally cars both past and present, have been and are prepared in-house.
After several years concentrating on the brake and clutch areas, it became obvious that the company needed to diversify into servicing and general repairs and maintenance. Whilst still priding themselves on being experts in those two fields, the workshop has broadened its horizon.
This is where the Bosch organisation came in. Robert Bosch Corporation is a global company employing thousands of people in manufacturing around the world and with one hundred and thirty five Bosch Car Service Centres (BCS) around Australia, it made sense to join the strength. The network provides Australia Wide Warranty on all parts and service.
Mr Brakes still offers the same excellent service, with the same excellent staff, in a brand new building. The advantage for you is plenty of parking, little traffic, a loan car if required or a lift home or to work. Lucas shopping centre is 500 metres away and included a brand new Safeway store and Wilson’s Fruit and Veg and a coffee awaits either in our waiting room or in the Safeway centre. As a team, we are conscious of our environment and are doing everything we can to ensure our workshop is environmentally friendly.
We look forward to receiving you and your car in our “State of the Art” facility.
Come and check us out, you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
