Auto Services Perth was founded in 1981 by father and son Jim and Steve Crozier. The business became Auto Services Perth Ltd in 2007 with Steve & his wife, Elaine as Company Directors and their son Mark also now plays an important role within the business. They have worked hard to build the business to what it is today. The original small family run business moved to its current purpose built premises in September 2009 expanding into Commercial Vehicle Repair & Servicing when they became an IVECO Truck & Van approved repairer. Since then they have been appointed a Mercedes Benz (LCV) authorised servicing, repair and parts centre and also gained the Fiat Professional authorised servicing, repair and parts centre for the area.
There is a sales outlet at Ruthvenfield Way with the Isuzu pick-up franchise, and a Maxus van centre, with both diesel and electric vans for demonstration, as well as Practical Car and Van hire.
As Auto Services Perth Ltd has grown it has prided itself in remaining a friendly environment for staff and customers alike.
Auto Services Perth Ltd endeavour to provide outstanding levels of service to all our valued customers. It is our intention to ensure that every customer can expect the highest quality of workmanship, be treated in a courteous manner and be assured that their vehicle is in the best possible hands.
To ensure we achieve this, continual investment has been made in our facilities, equipment and training. Our staff are fully trained and use the latest and best quality equipment on the market. In recognition of the quality standards we achieve we are regularly audited by VW, Mercedes Benz, Iveco, Fiat Commercial, Isuzu and TUV, a European accreditation body and we are proud to have achieved accreditation.
At Auto Services Perth Ltd we ensure that we comply with the latest environmental legislation at all times, and all the waste oils, fluids, filters, etc that are removed from vehicles are disposed of in a responsible manner.
As a proactive business, we are continuously looking to make improvements and we fully recognise that the future success of our company relies upon us ensuring our customers are happy. It is always our objective to provide our clients with a high standard of customer service at all times. However, we are human, and recognise that things can go wrong occasionally and when this occurs we are committed to resolving matters promptly and efficiently.
