Our mechanical services are extensive, from car and logbook servicing, brakes, air conditioning, suspension, timing chains and more. Please view our services to see a comprehensive list of the mechanical services we offer.

We perform the following core services as a trusted Charmhaven Mechanic:


We perform logbook servicing for cars, 4WDs, caravans, light trucks & buses, motorhomes and most vehicles.

We always contact our clients prior to performing servicing or repairs further to the service that was originally stipulated.

We provide our clients with an itemised invoice of the work performed and stamp the logbook when the car has had the manufacturer’s scheduled maintenance to preserve your new car’s warranty.

Please view our car service page to learn what we perform on every standard service.


We use industry-developed diagnostic tools to identify issues with vehicles, repair them and store an accurate repair history.

We provide a client with a quote for repairs and seek authorisation to proceed with work.

We communicate with our client thoroughly to ensure they can make a well-informed decision about repairs (i.e., whether a part should be repaired or replaced with new).

Our repair services are comprehensive. We also specialise in certain services (diesel repairs, timing chain replacements).

Safety Checks

Most commonly, Charmhaven clients contact us for safety checks (pink slip, blue slip, brown slip) to assist with renewing car registration.

If your vehicle passes the safety check, our Service Advisor will send the report to Roads and Maritime Services digitally.

If the vehicle fails, we will provide you with options for repair.

Passed pink slips are valid for 6 months after the date of issue.

We also perform blue slips, brown slips, gas registration and can update the RMS directly.
