  • I bought my daughter a ute for her 18th birthday with a Safety Certificate. When the indicators didn't work, I thought to get a second opinion so i called the guys at Auto Inspections Qld. With a list of 4 items that needed repair, I had these all rectified at no cost to me from the other company. Happy daughter.
