Looking for a good Whangarei mechanic?

City Motors provide support to North Haven Hospice by way of bi-monthly checking of all of our fleet vehicles to ensure that they remain road worthy and safe.   This service is carried out at our premises free of charge and is invaluable in that there is no disruption to the availability of our vehicles for nurses to continue with their daily visits to our patients.

City Motors provide a comprehensive report on each vehicle noting any work that is required or any impending risks to the safety of the vehicles.

They also carry out the maintenance on the majority of our fleet.  Staff are always pleasant and helpful and the work is of a high standard.

North Haven Hospice appreciates the community support that is received from City Motors.

Jacqui and Richard have looked after our two BMWs since they opened for business.  I have nothing but high praise for both themselves and their staff in all of our dealings, including the time when they attended a rare breakdown after hours, taking charge and remedied the situation quickly for me.  They really do live by their motto of “Service you expect at places you wouldn’t.”

Whilst it’s always nice to hear that your vehicle has passed its WOF test it’s also reassuring when Richard fails something and explains the safety reasons behind his decision.  He doesn’t take shortcuts and there is never any pressure to have them carry out the required work.

They will also collect our vehicles from us at work and drop them off again if needed. I regularly recommend and hand out their business cards to friends, family, clients and colleagues as I am confident that they would also be well looked after.

City Motors is the most honest, reliable, efficient and happy workshop I have ever been too. I have recommended City Motorsto many friends and will continue to do so due to their exceptional service and honesty. I have no idea about cars- so when you know you are getting charged the correct amount for labour, parts and service and you know your car is going to be correctly warranted/ serviced and fixed it makes a huge difference. City Motors go over and above most workshops with their service and always make sure you know what you are paying for and what has been done on your car. Jacqui and Richard are both very happy people that we love to work with.

I know that when I need my car looked at I go to City Motors. I have known Richard and Jacqui for 5 years and they always give me good honest advice about my car and what is needed to get it back on the road.  Richard has attended to a couple of callouts for me, as single woman this is important. They keep me well informed as to what the costs/charges will be or any work required so there are no surprises when paying my bill.  City Motors provide prompt service with a smile and a cuppa as well.  I am grateful to have this great auto service/repair shop in Whangarei!

"I’m not a car person, in fact, I am the furthest thing from it but the City Motors team treat me no different from any of their other customers. I have had times in the past where, as a woman, a mechanic has treated me as if I know nothing about cars. At City Motors, they explain everything I need to know and I trust them implicitly with both my vehicles and making sure they are safe for my family to be transported in. They really do offer friendly, reliable service and there has never been a hidden cost or a surprise bill. I highly recommend the City Motors team to anyone who wants an honest, reliable mechanic who fixes a car right, the first time."

"Thank you for such a prompt and professional service you gave in fixing and securing my new WoF!! I truly appreciated your assistance."

Pamela, Whau Valley

"I'm a courier driver so find it difficult and hard to get my vehicle serviced. Using City Motors was easy as they came on my weekend off and did it at our house, hours that suited me. Richard was approachable and did a great job. We have since booked him to service our car, avoiding the costs of using the dealership. We recommend his work to everyone."

Hayden, Morningside

"I am very impressed with the workmanship and promptness of Richard from City Motors. Where others have not been able to solve the problem with my vehicle, Richard had it fixed within half and hour, and also gave my vehicle a full service at the same time at a very reasonable rate. I have no hesitation in referring Richard to my friends and colleagues."

John Steedman, Jonzone Creations

"We started using Richard Yallop from City Motors to do our vehicle maintenance. Our offices are at the Regent so we are a little out of town. The benefits have been …

1. The mechanic comes to us so we do not need to deliver the car to the garage and arrange for a ride back, and then have to do the reverse later in the day.

2. You get a very competent mechanic who does the work personally

3. The prices have been very reasonable

We will be continuing to use his services, and now the neighbours have got in on the act and are doing the same."

Peter Moody CA, Moodys Chartered Accountants

"I recently had Richard Yallop from City Motors service my wife's car at our home. The convenience of having it serviced at home, along with the very reasonable pricing was so good that I had my own vehicle serviced by City Motors a few weeks later. I have also recommended Richard to others who could benefit from his services. If you want a good job done at a reasonable cost and at your own convenience, then I would recommend Richard without hesitation."

Clinton, Kamo

"A special thank you Richard for your great service and excellent workmanship in servicing and repairing our village vehicles.

It has always been a pain having to take our vehicles downtown to have them fixed and then go back and pick them up again. You wonder who will be working on your car and if they have any experience and of course you end up paying top dollar in repairs.

With your come to the client service, extremely competitive rate and being able to talk to the actual repairer is a huge benefit to us.

We are spreading the word about you around our village, now that is a recommendation in itself."

Graham Tiplady, Village Manager, The Falls Estate Lifestyle Village

"I would like to say how happy I was having Richard from City Motors working on my car. He was friendly and professional and showed and told me what was required before doing the work. He also gave me a price on any work before he started. I felt very safe driving my car when I used it last week. Such a nice young man.

I would recommend Richard to anybody looking for a professional and efficient job that is well done and is great value for money."

Wiki, Kamo

"Our Peugeot was due for a service and I was worried which overpriced mechanic to take it to. I found the number of City Motors and had the car serviced. I am completely happy with the work performed for the price charged. Very professional and time efficient. I won't be going anywhere else in the future!"
