You should replace these filters according to the manufacturer’s recommendation.

Here at C.J.S Mechanical/Marine & Mobile Services

The team can cater for your Industrial needs On-Site or at our Workshop. We offer 6 Days a week Repairs & Break Down services for businesses as we know the constraints of having machinery out of action during the working week. Some of the Industrial Machinery we carry out services and repairs on are:

  • Bobcats 
  • Light Excavators 
  • Forklifts
  • Boring Units 
  • Generator & Vac Pump Motors

Here at C.J.S Mechanical/Marine & Mobile Services, we believe that preventative maintenance is a high priority and can be an overlooked service in the Industrial Industry. Often people/businesses may be too busy or prefer to wait until a problem occurs rather than schedule regular maintenance.

This often results in higher associated repair costs, not to mention the downtime and inconvenience involved. You can be sure that our team will take pride in providing you with the highest level of workmanship teamed with meticulous care for your vehicle, boat, and machinery. We also ensure that there are no surprise charges on your invoice by keeping you updated on what needs to be done and perhaps what will need to be done at the next service.

Roadworthy Certificate (RWC), COI & UBER Inspections

In Queensland only approved Inspection Workshop Stations or Mobile Inspection Units can carry out (RWC) Cars or Light Commercial Vehicles up to and including 4.5 Tonne. Certificate of Inspection (COI) is needed for vehicles over 4.5 Tonne up to and including 16 Tonne. With the new Uber laws now in effect, you are also required to get your vehicle inspected prior to get an Uber licence and then will require a yearly re-inspection, which is slightly different just to a RWC inspection,in which not all mechanics or RWC inspections have this extra licence or qualification so please beware to state you are wanting an inspection for an Eber licence.

The RWC Inspection is required when selling or buying a registered motor vehicle. If the vehicle is an LPG fuelled vehicle it will also need a Gas Safety Certificate along with an RWC to complete a Re-Registration or Transfer Registration.

Safety Certificates are valid for two months or 2000km (whichever comes first) from the date of issue unless it is a licenced motor dealer then Certificates are valid for three months or 1000km (whichever comes first).

Fees & Charges are a set price governed by the QLD Government Department of Transport & Main Roads, and are valid from 1 July 2018 and include GST where applicable.

Inspection Fees, Safety Certificates, and Certificates of Inspection.

Note: A Safety Certificate (RWC) is NOT a comprehensive mechanical inspection of a vehicle. Before you purchase a used vehicle, registered or unregistered, we recommend you contact the team at C.J.S Mechanical/Marine & Mobile Services for a full mechanical pre-inspection/report of the vehicle, before making any purchases. This will ensure you are getting a more comprehensive inspection of the vehicle before you pay for a car that may need major repairs.

Wheel Alignment/Balancing

Here at C.J.S Mechanical/Marine & Mobile Services, we have the latest Wheel Alignment and Balancing machines the market has on offer.

Wheel Balancing and Alignment is a key factor for getting maximum life from your tires as well as ensuring the safety and handling of your vehicle. Regular Wheel Balancing, Tyre Rotation, and Wheel Alignments can reduce unnecessary wear and tear while also providing safe driving standards.

                                                                       

Wheel Balance

As a tyre wears, its weight distribution may become unevenly balanced. An unbalanced wheel will cause vibration to the vehicle that can shorten the life of tyres, bearings, shocks and other tyre components. Regular Wheel Balances are needed as tyre wear is always affecting the balance of the wheel. This is why, we here, at C.J.S Mechanical/Marine & Mobile Services balance your tyres every service at no extra cost. If you notice steering wheel or vehicle vibration, it’s a good idea to bring your car into C.J.S Mechanical/Marine & Mobile Services for a wheel balance.

 

Wheel Alignment

Wheel Alignment makes sure that all the tyres on the vehicle are pointing in the same direction to ensure the least amount of wear to your tyres. It keeps individual tyres from pulling outwards or pushing on the vehicle and eases pressure on the suspension system for better and safer handling. For the small investment cost of a wheel alignment, you could save money by extending tyre life and improving your fuel mileage. C.J.S Mechanical/Marine & Mobile Services recommends you align your wheels at least once per year when vehicle modifications such as lift/lowering kits are added; constant weight is carried in your vehicle or after the fitting of new tyres.

  

Tyre Rotation

Your tyres wear at different rates. Rotating your tyres achieves more even tyre wear for longer lasting tyres. C.J.S Mechanical/Marine & Mobile Services rotate tyres as part of their general servicing and recommend rotating your tyres every service or at 10,000km to prolong the lifespan of your tyre and to ensure you are maximizing your car's fuel economy.

Buying/Selling 

Here at C.J.S Mechanical/Marine & Mobile Service, we value you, as the customer and your vehicles/vessels so much, it's not just a job to us working on your vehicles/vessels but more so a privilege and passion of ours. So we will advertise vehicles/vessel on the web page for sale free of charge .yes that's right Free of charge. How you ask ?.

We like to offer our existing customers and new customers a buying and selling service that we do for free. Unlike some shifty used car dealers with no idea or genuine history /repairs on what they are selling, to that budgie up back yarder mechanic, dishonest private sellers, around town and surrounding areas.

Any commission does not drive us for sales, budgets, time frames or trying to sell any bogus warranty scams. We are independent, a local family, every day certified mechanics, basing you the buyer with facts, service history and repairs throughout the life/time the vehicles/vessels have been under you teams care.

So what can you as the buyer expect?  That little bit of pieces of mind, whether it's that first car/boat for you son, daughter or your second or third vehicle/vessel because you just wanted to upgrade or expand due to family or lifestyle changes/circumstances. Here at C.J.S Mechanical/Marine & Mobile Service, we are trying to look out for the best interest for you to the buyer, and make sure you haven't bought a piece of sh.....t and could be leaving you a lot more debt and downtime.

As for the Seller, what can they expect? We don't charge you any fees; nor do we charge any commission. We simply just take all the hard work and stress that can be involved when trying to selling vehicle/vessel-like, e.g., Technical talk, about models, extras, km, hours, modifications, RWC  inspections, helping with transfer papers and we can even organize detailing. We also take dealing with tyre kickers or no genuine inquiries so it doesn't put you out or cause you any inconvenience to your day/nights, as we only refer you to genuinely interested people before exchanging out any numbers.

So what's in it for C.J.S Mechanical/Marine & Mobile Service, you ask? Only the fact we keep our current customers even happier and hopefully, we gain a few new ones in the future, which leaves our team with more vehicle/vessel to work on. Which leads to more satisfaction, and the thought of knowing we have just helped out another customer which we are so appreciative to have and in returned hope to save them time, money and heartache. Cheers & happy motoring to all.
