Cars / Campers / Vans

Before a vehicle is handed over it is given a complete mechanical check by Darren. Any faults found that are critical to the safe and reliable operation of the vehicle are repaired. It is then given a service - oil change, new oil filter, new air filter, etc. Finally it is given a thorough road test to make sure it runs efficiently and reliably. Please feel free to get an independent opinion on the mechanical condition of the vehicle that you're interested in.
All vehicles have current wof and rego. If you wish vehicles can be equipped with camping gear.

Maintenance Tips

That road conditions and the availability of road side service are often not the same as for example in Germany. Therefore we strongly recommend doing the following checks & services to help insure a more trouble free and enjoyable holiday:
  • Check oil & water daily
  • Change oil and service vehicle every 5,000km, incl. oil filter change and air filter clean
  • Periodically check the tyre pressure and make sure they are well pumped up
  • Stop the car immediately and seek advice if you notice anything out of the ordinary, especially unusual noise, raising temperature, etc
It doesn't take much to look after your 'trusty transport' but these little things can make a big difference. Not only will it be better for the engine and help prevent nasty surprises it will also help reduce fuel consumption.
