Independently owned service and mechanical repair outlets. These can range from one-man operations working from a lock-up to large fully equipped workshops. The key word is ‘Independent’. That’s to say they are NOT part of a national or state chain (such as Ultra Tune, KMart Auto or Goodyear AutoCare). However, they may be part of a national or state soft-franchise group (such as Repco Repair Centre or Auto Brake Service).
