October Highlights

Our journey towards a state-of-the-art facility took a major leap forward in October. The walls for the new service shop have risen, shaping the future of our service capabilities. We also completed the installation of a robust roof frame and a functional side awning, setting the stage for an unparalleled service experience.

November Highlights

To make way for the new car wash, we temporarily closed the service department over a three-day period for trench digging and foundation pouring. This closure allowed us to progress significantly with the redevelopment. Meanwhile, the extra space on the lot enabled our pre-owned sales team to organize our first ever Black Friday Sale. 

December Highlights

The final month of 2023 saw significant advancements despite the seasonal challenges. We applied resilient epoxy flooring to the car wash area, ensuring durability and aesthetic appeal. Additionally, protective tarping was strategically placed to shield the construction site from the rains, keeping our progress on schedule.

January Highlights

January's progress on our new facility was notable despite the wet weather. The detailing area slabs were poured, with the bitumen laying scheduled next. Most painting tasks are underway, significantly shaping our facility's look. The garden bed frames installation has added a visible structure to our landscape. 

February Updates

In February, we focused on preparing for our move to the demountables, streamlining storage and decluttering in anticipation. The electrical stay pole was safely removed, marking another step forward. As we approach our move on March 1st, new furniture setups are underway, ensuring a seamless transition to our temporary setup.

March Updates

March Updates

In March, our journey toward unveiling a state-of-the-art facility saw significant milestones. We officially said goodbye to the old service workshop, now down to just the cement slab, a bittersweet moment of progress and new beginnings. Additionally, the old showroom has been stripped back to its foundations, marking another step forward in our transformation. These changes have dramatically reshaped the landscape for anyone travelling down Wynnum Road.

Looking ahead to April, we're gearing up for an exciting phase of our redevelopment - the widening of Bridgewater Street. This important upgrade is scheduled for the end of the month and promises to enhance accessibility and traffic flow around our new facility, ensuring an even smoother experience for our visitors.

​Despite the construction and changes, our commitment to providing exceptional service remains unwavering. We're navigating these changes with the utmost consideration for the convenience and safety of our visitors. As we transition through this period of growth, we're finding innovative ways to maintain the high standard of service you've come to expect from us.

Stay up to date with progress!
