Logbook Service

The Lakes Mobile Mechanics is authorised to maintain your new car & manufacturer’s warranty.  Our technicians are provided with regular training  to make sure they are kept abreast of all the latest updates in the car repair industry & the latest repair methods.

It’s a very common belief among many Australians that to maintain a new vehicle warranty the vehicle must be serviced by the car dealership, this is absolutely not true. In fact the ACCC has reiterated several times and confirmed that under Australian law you are free to have your car serviced by any mechanic who is suitably qualified to do so.

Your vehicle log book specifically provides information to a qualified mechanic on recommended service requirements.  This includes making sure that all parts and lubricants that are replaced either meet or exceed the specifications of the original vehicle manufacturer.  

Some motor vehicle log books will have wording included that suggest they need to be stamped by an authorised dealer, however as long as the vehicle service is completed & your logbook is stamped by our qualified mechanical team, your new vehicle warranty will remain intact.

Our Logbook Servicing includes servicing vehicle as per log book: use approved parts, replace oil and filter, clean M.A.F sensor (air flow sensor), top-up all fluid levels, clean air filter and air filter box as required, adjust all belts and handbrake as necessary, check and adjust tyre pressures to 38PSI for best performance, check all lights and carry out suspension check, and complete a full inspection of the vehicle.

Minor Service

The Lakes Mobile Mechanics are specialists in providing Ipswich residents with minor car servicing.  Depending on your vehicle minor car services are generally carried out every 10,000 to 15,000 kms and they are generally quicker than a major service.

Even though the minor service is much cheaper than a major service, it forms an essential part of maintaining your vehicle & making sure everyone who rides in the vehicle is kept safe.  During the minor service, we perform a very thorough inspection of all vehicle components, and this can often lead to us identifying mechanical & safety issues before they become a much bigger problem.  

Our team has the ability to come to your location and perform your minor vehicle service at your convenience anywhere in the Ipswich or Brisbane West area.  Should your car require any further repairs or if we encounter any other issues during your car service, we will always communicate these issues and obtain your approval before proceeding with other car repairs.

Carry out minor service as required: replace oil and filter, cleaned M.A.F sensor, top-up all fluid levels, clean air filter and air filter box as required, adjust all belts and handbrake as necessary, check brakes, check and adjust tyre pressures to 38PSI for best performance, check all lights and carry out suspension check and complete inspection over vehicle.

Major Service

In addition to the regular minor car servicing your vehicle would also require major car servicing generally every 30,000 to  45,000 kms depending on the vehicle manufacturers requirements.   Here at The Lakes Mobile Mechanics we can perform this service for you according to the vehicle manufacturers log book servicing handbook.

Major car servicing in Ipswich can sometimes be confusing for car owners.  There is often a significant price difference between minor & major servicing, and the average car owner is probably unaware of the real differences between the two.

The major service is more time intensive, & includes extra maintenance items such as spark plug replacement & swapping out of additional filters that aren’t part of the minor service.  These may include air & fuel filters, and also the internal cabin filter.  All steering & suspension components are thoroughly checked, along with transmission, exhaust & braking systems.

As with any car service provided the The Lakes Mobile Mechanic, we will let you know if we notice any additional issues that require attention, & can advise as to whether these issues need immediate attention, or if they can be monitored & repaired at your next service interval.

Communication is the key to our success, & we will always discuss options & issues with you before commencing with any further repairs that are outside the scope of your major service.  

Includes all servicing as per minor service plus additional filters and spark plugs or entire under-body fluids as per customer’s request, mechanic’s professional advice or logbook requirements.

Truck Service

The Lakes Mobile Mechanic not only services cars, but can also handle your regular truck servicing requirements anywhere in the Ipswich or Brisbane West area.

You’ve made a substantial investment in purchasing your truck, & you can trust our team to look after any heavy vehicle servicing, repairs or maintenance issues that need attending.

The transport industry forms the backbone of this country, and as such we understand that it’s crucial to minimise downtime for your truck.  Let’s face it, if your truck isn’t on the road, it’s costing you money instead of making you money.  Which is why we will always come to you onsite, & do our very best to get your truck servicing completed with minimal downtime for you.

Our team is very thorough and prides itself on taking preventative maintenance measures to avoid unexpected roadside breakdowns for your trucks, whether you just have the one or a whole fleet.  If we notice any potential issues during your truck service, we will communicate with you & advise on the best course of action.  

Carry out service as required to: replace oil and filter, top up all fluid levels, clean air filter, adjust all belts and handbrake as necessary, check and adjust tyre pressures as needed, check all lights, carry out suspension check and complete inspection over vehicle, lube all grease points and adjust all brakes as required.

Pre Purchase Inspection

If you are looking for a new second hand vehicle, call us for a pre-buy inspection as its highly recommended for peace of mind. From $165 inc GST within a 10km radius of Springfield Lakes, we can advise you if the car is not what it seems and can save you a lot of money in the future (outside this area may incur a small travel fee).


Please note we do NOT charge a call out fee. We will check over your vehicle for $132 (hourly rate) to determine what needs to be fixed. If we can fix it in the first hour, then you pay no more than $132. If however, the repair or fault is going to take longer or you need parts we will inform you along the way with a quote. This way there are no surprises at the completion of the job.
