Every new car comes with a warranty and a logbook when you purchase it. The warranty covers the expense of many mechanical repairs, but you must regularly have your vehicle serviced at a certain standard and have that service recorded in the logbook and signed off by a certified mechanic. Frequent logbook services also raise the resale price of your vehicle, as the buyer is assured that you have taken good care of the vehicle. Servicing is also a great preventative measure and can catch minor problems before they develop into serious damage.
Here at Illawarra Service Centre we can provide logbook services for all:

Before you sell or transfer ownership of a vehicle, you are legally required by the NSW government to take it to a certified tester, to ensure it passes an e-safety check that qualifies it passes the bare minimum of safety requirements to drive on the road. However, since these are the bare minimum, we would recommend that if you're buying a vehicle, you should take it in for a pre-purchase inspection to be certain of what you are buying.
Here at Illawarra Service Centre we can perfom the following inspections:
- E-Safety checks
- LPG Pink slips
- Pre-Purchase inspections
- Registration checks
