About Nigel & the team
WHO’S BEHIND AUSSIE BRAKES?
Anyone who’s ever visited the Aussie Brakes’ Burleigh Heads workshop will know that the business is family owned and operated. Whether you pop in for assistance during our standard operating hours (Monday to Friday between 7:30 am and 5:00pm), visit us on Saturdays (by appointment), or drop off your car at night by special arrangement, you’ll be greeted by a member of our family.
You’ll find Nigel Oneill (our owner) putting his mechanical skills to work fixing cars, and Kelly (Nigel’s wife and Aussie Brakes owner) greeting you when you enter the workshop. Steve, our long-term resident mechanic puts his attention to detail to good use in the Aussie Brakes workshop, while Les Oneill (POPPY) is our resident Machine Operator, Sales and Delivery Guy.
WHY CHOOSE AUSSIE BRAKES FOR YOUR GOLD COAST CAR SERVICE?
The number one concern that most people have when booking a car service is cost. There’s the constant fear that they might be overcharged, and receiving a phone call telling them the job will cost twice as much as expected. At Aussie Brakes, we believe that you deserve transparency, but at the same time understand that car services can often unearth unforeseen repair problems and issues.
For this reason, we have a fixed price car service offering, and if you come in for a quote and the job ends up going beyond the scope of what was originally discussed, we’ll never proceed without your sign off.
THE AUSSIE BRAKES DIFFERENCE
There are many points of difference that you’ll experience when you choose Aussie Brakes to handle all your braking requirements. You can rest assured that only fully qualified, skilled and accredited mechanics will work on your car, and that they will do so using the most up-to-date and well-maintained equipment available on the market – in our mechanical workshop and machine shop that’s been equipped to work on all brakes and flywheels.
As a result of our commitment to quality, all our work carries a 6 month / 10 000km warranty, as per manufacturer’s conditions.
We’re also proud to say that we’re fully compliant with all Governing body and MTAA standards, and we ensure all staff members receive annual training to keep them at the forefront of their field.
This is only part of what makes Aussie Brakes different. Unlike our competitors, we pride ourselves on operating a family run business, which means that we care for your cars as if they were our own, and understand that your main concern is to have a car that keeps you and your family safe. When you visit us, we’ll personally be involved in providing you with mechanical and sales assistance, front of store help, as well as delivery.
