From desert plains to outback terrains, your caravan keeps you going. But over time, the brakes and bearings – among other things – can wear down.
And unlike cars, caravans don’t have dashboards that alert you to potential issues. What’s more, if you’re towing it, you’re unaware of problems like flat tyres or wheel bearing failures.
By servicing your caravan every 12 months (or 10,000km), I can help you prevent the dreaded roadside breakdown, stranded without a trusted caravan specialist at your disposal.
If you ask me, the only thing you should be stopping for is to capture a shot of the setting sun.
As a specialist, I’ve got deep expertise in all mechanical and electrical aspects of your caravan. This makes my servicing quick, systematic and highly detailed.
And because I come to you, there’s no need to hook your caravan up to a car and tow it to a mechanic’s site.
I also travel with a wide range of spare parts in my mobile van, so you won’t be left waiting for something to be ‘ordered in’. And that means you can get on the road even sooner.
The safety and reliability of your caravan is paramount. And with my Service Safe accreditation, you have true peace of mind.
As a Service Safe provider, I am contractually bound to meet the Caravan Industry Association Victoria (CIA) standards. And each year, I am audited to ensure I continue to meet these requirements.
This means I’m better equipped, better trained – and ready to offer a better service to you.
I’ll undertake any mechanical and electrical service or maintenance on your caravan’s 12-volt electrical system.
And my services are comprehensive. For your dual-axle caravan, it’ll be ready to hit the road within three hours. For a single-axle, it’ll be good to go in around two hours.
During that time, I inspect:
‘Tim has serviced our Kimberley Kamper trailer now for two years. After some earlier bad experiences with other mechanics, it's reassuring to have an excellent mechanic that I fully trust. As well as doing a great job on routine maintenance tasks like brakes and bearings, he is versatile and has done an excellent job in the installation of a Dexter electric hydraulic system and Webasto diesel heater. His mobile business is also very convenient. The range of tools and spare parts he has on-hand amazes me. A good communicator and always reliable with dates and times.’
‘Tim was really efficient and knowledgeable. He has a fantastic service and is a nice fellow.’
‘Stopfast was recommended to us by a fellow caravaner. So we travelled from Albury to Mornington for a bearings and brake service. Tim was very courteous and did a tremendous job. He will be working on our caravan in the future. l can highly recommend Stopfast – rarely in the industry do you meet a person as genuine as Tim...👍.’
‘Tim has just finished installing a Webasto diesel heating system in our new caravan and we are very pleased with the neat, tidy and well-performed work. Over some years now, Tim has looked after a number of vans we have owned and apart from brake and bearing maintenance, he has installed a Dexter Sway Control system, an electric jack, changes to various towing hitches and more.
We regard Tim as a reliable and skilful person whose work is thorough and careful. We highly recommend Tim and Stopfast.’
‘Tim looked after my boat trailer with new brakes and a service. His knowledge of his trade is extensive. His prices are not over-the-top and I'll happily use Stopfast for many years to come.
I passed on Tim's contact details to the primary school where my children attend for some trailer repairs and servicing. The price again was excellent and the school is more than happy to have Tim back again too.’
‘I engaged Stopfast for a problem with the Brembo system on my 2015 XR8 after a failed diagnosis by my Ford dealer.
Tim diagnosed the problem promptly and fixed it without fuss. It’s fair to say the service I received was excellent.’
‘Couldn't have been happier. Great guy, very professional and friendly. A really good service.’
‘Thanks heaps, Tim! Your work is awesome, you are very helpful and know exactly how to fix any brake issue. I’d highly recommend your work to anyone.’
