If your brakes aren’t stopping your car as well as they once did, you may be in need of brake repairs.

Your tyres are the contact point between your vehicle and the road. While they might seem simple at first, they are marvels of modern engineering. Your tyres are designed to continue to provide grip even as they wear (as long as your wheels are aligned properly) and in wet weather, your tyre treads act as channels to divert water away from where your tyres touch the road, and prevent aquaplaning.
Here at Tech 1 Autocare, we can provide tyres for a wide range of vehicles, including: cars, 4WDs and light commercial vehicles (vans and utes). We can also help you with tyre fitting, tyre balancing, and tyre rotation.
We provide a comprehensive repair service here at Tech 1 Autocare, including, but not limited to:
- Caravan repairs
- Agricultural equipment repairs
- Trailer repairs
- Earthmoving equipment repairs
