Quality Car Repair Services

Gideon has clients that had been with him since 1994. We officially opened our own workshop, full time in 2012!!

He is a phenomenal technician. In 1993 Williams Hunt, Randburg gave him the honourable rank of: TROUBLE SHOOTER SA – (from anywhere in South Africa; once people gave up all hope in diagnosing the problem on a DELTA make of vehicle, Opels, Chevs, Isuzu etc. the vehicle gets towed to Randburg for Gideon to diagnose and repair) – where he worked until 2001.

His technical, diagnostic and mechanical knowledge is truly remarkable.


Therefore – if exceptional quality workmanship, background knowledge and skill is what you are after….then indeed – look no further! 

☆We collect and deliver your vehicles from and to work or home 

☆Owner managed business, the owner is the only person who does the repair to/services of and or do maintenance work on your vehicles! 

☆Our “never have a come-back” motto (things which is often the result of bad quality parts, poor workmanship, misdiagnosis, human negligence etc.) is of much higher value and importance to us; opposed to beating ALL quotes to give you the cheapest job…never end yourself with the bitter after taste of “goedkoop koop is duur koop” – but I will never rip you off! 

Gideon would not be operating so successfully over 8 years solo now if his pricing was not still reasonable and affordable!!
