My wife and I have been taking our vehicle to Niall for the last 19 years.
We initially were introduced to Niall’s business through Ogilvie’s Automotive in Mitchell, in 1996.
At that time my wife’s VB Commodore was stolen, and the thieves trashed the automatic transmission.
The policeman recommended that the car be towed to Ogilvie’s as they had an excellent reputation for quality work at a fair price.
We were so impressed with the service and the standard of work that we have stayed with the business ever since, and we have seen them move to the current location in Ballieu Court in Mitchell (around 2001), under the name Repco Authorised Service Mitchell.
We have found the work to be consistently of a high standard and a fair price.
The only time we had an issue with a service/repair was with the Subaru Outback (yes, I still miss the excellent VB Commodore).
Niall determined that a new O-ring in the fuel filter was out of spec.
Well, these things happen, and he fixed the problem at no extra cost without trying to invent a story that would cost more money – I’ve had that often enough with other mechanics in the past.
I have always found Niall pleasant to deal with, he clearly explains the issues that NEED fixing, and provides excellent advice on what is likely to be a maintenance issue in the near future. I have always had a strong feeling of confidence in the integrity of Niall’s business and I sure hope that that integrity wears off onto all of his junior mechanics when they go out on their own.
I will be sorry to see the day when Niall retires.
