Replace Break Pads

6 months ago
I was passing thru Alice Springs and discovered that my break pads badly needed to be replaced. I contacted this company and they had me come in straight away. A couple of hours later I was back on the road. Great service.

I am passing thru Alice Springs and had issues on both my Isuzu MUX and my old 1949 caravan. These guys were absolutely fantastic and fixed everything in a 2 hour service.

Outstanding Service

10 months ago
Potentially, we could've been stranded in Alice Springs for about 5-6 days due to the pending Easter Long Weekend. However, both Steve's (father & son), were brilliant in providing a professional, friendly and expedient service. We were back on the road the very next morning. We were extremely grateful and highly recommend SMH Mechanical.......

Great caravan repair business

a year ago
Stephen and his team provided excellent timely quality caravan repairs at a reasonable price. We had wheel bearing and consequential tyre problems despite servicing. Now know we need to replace bearings regularly. Much cheaper than recovery and repairs.

Excellent prompt service. great knowledge—A Toyota expert

a year ago
Steve's team are prompt and knowledgeable. Our Toyota LC200 had done a huge amount of mileage and was in need of a major service. The adage of NT—not today and not tomorrow doesn't apply here. Very impressed and will be recommending him.

Super service!!

2 years ago
Took my broken Kimberley Kamper into Alice (on the back of tilt tow truck) and went staraight to Steve as he was the only guy who consider looking at our disaster. He assessed the problem (admittedly, not that hard given we only had one wheel), arranged for 'Kimberley' spares immediately (new hub, studs, etc.) and got straight on to repair work that night (it was well after 5.00pm by the time we had arrived at his workshop). He and his team carried out the agreed works in less than 24 hours, charged a fair fee, and saw us back on our way next day. There was little time to adequately thank them as they were back working on some poor traveler's mishap. I cannot recommend Steve business highly enough. Since returning to Perth, our one wheel adventure and the fantastic service we received at SMH has featured largely in all our tales. Thanks again Steve!!

Called in to Steve's shop to see if he could repair our off road van suspension. Fitted us in to his busy schedule on the spot. Had us repaired and underway in a couple of hours!!!! At a cost of half I would have expected to pay back home!!! Fantastic outback 'bush' service. You have a lot of good karma coming back your way, Steve!!! Thanks again mate !

Repair brake calipers

2 years ago
We had our boat trailer brake callipers replaced and I watched Steve replace the wheel and tighten the nuts with the rattle gun and left town. About 50km up the road we pulled up to top up water bottles and I went to feel the wheel if it was warm. To my horror the wheel had worked loose and almost sheared off the studs. I contacted Steve and they responded immediately and were there in about an hour, fixed it on the spot, no charge. How fantastic is that!!

Profession customer centric approach. Had a spring break on Mond

2 years ago
Limped into Alice with a broken spring and contacted SMH. There professional customer centric approach to addressing my issue was exemplary and instilled great confidence in me having them complete the work, which they did as committed to with thorough explanations as to the process. Recommend to any one with similar issues. Thanks Steve.

Customer service above & beyond, highly recommend!

SMH came recommended from the tow truck driver that picked us up as we were travelling from Darwin and had no idea who to go to, and we are so glad the SMH guys were able to take care of us. The problem with our car was recurring (alternator dropping out) and they went out of their way to accommodate us and ensure our car was repaired as quickly as possible, including getting soaked in the rain with us when the car broke down at a busy intersection! We cannot recommend SMH highly enough for their professionalism, expertise and compassion. Thank you!

Fantastic service

2 years ago
After having issues with KC's Auto Electrics when they damaged my radiator and refused to fix or pay for any repair, i consulted Steve from SMH and he was VERY helpful. While keeping a new radiator in stock and a wealth of knowledge in repairing them, he went and inspected the radiator and presented me with multiple options. as i was on a deadline to get out of town, Steve prioritised my job for me and got the work done very quickly. Fantastic workmanship is obvious, and he runs a very honerable business and is a man of his word. I cannot thank him enough and cannot speak highly enough of his work ethics and good customer service!

Ran into serious front end troubles with my Toyota Hilux in Alice Springs. Especially worrying when local Toyota Dealer and two other mechanical workshops said could not even look at the vehicle for over one week. Recommended to SMH by a "local". Stephen looked at vehicle immediately diagnosed the problem and organised for spare parts to be airfreighted from Sydney. Stephen went out of his way to repair the vehicle immediately as the parts arrived and get us back on the road. SMH provided professional, courteous, and efficient service at exceptionally fair labour rates. Their workshop is extremely well organised and spotless!

Installing a replacement airbag

3 years ago
A few weeks into a big trip, I discovered a faulty airbag that needed replacing... Turned up on Steven's doorstep on a Monday morning to see if he could take a look and was so happy with his friendly, helpful and down to earth service! Great value.

Extremely Helpful

We highly recommend Steve and Junior. They went out of their way to help us with both our cars on a recent trip. Nothing was too much trouble. Genuine people who care about people. Would certainly not go anywhere else next time I'm in Alice Springs.

High quality, Excellent service

Feel very fortunate to have utilised Stephen's expertise to get us back on the road after replacing full rocker cover gasket kit to fix oil leak. Unfortunately this was to repair someone else's poor work. Can now continue holiday with confidence thanks to Stephen. Can't recommend enough

Professional, prompt repair

Unbelievable service - after being towed from Kings Canyon with a faulty fuel pump, Stephen was able to have this repaired by 8pm. He also was kind enough to pick us up from our accommodation. Fantastic, friendly service that helped us complete our central Aus trip without further 'adventure'.
