Grant Prior has always had a passion for running his own mechanical workshop, so when the previous owners of Prior's Automotive, Dennis and Rosemary Schulz, rang him about selling up, he and his wife jumped at the chance.
Grant and Jane Prior have been operating the business since 2003 and are currently in their 16th year of operation.
Grant has been a mechanic for more than 30 years and Jane has been in the motor industry in one way or another since 1995 and has been full time at Prior's Automotive since day one.
"We offer our community a dealership alternative with traditional country service," Jane said.
"We care for our customers and their cars."
"Our technicians are constantly training to keep up with the latest servicing techniques and procedures."
"They are dealership trained so we understand what manufacturers want when servicing your car."
"We also have the latest tooling and diagnostics equipment to keep up with the fast-moving technology within the motor industry."
Diesel vehicles are becoming popular, even in small cars, and these cars require special tools and training to service them.
"You don’t have to go to a diesel mechanic to service these vehicles as Prior's Automotive technicians are trained to service diesel cars and four-wheel-drives and we have the tooling to so," Jane said
"Modern technology within the motor industry is something not to be messed with."
"You need to keep up with training and special tooling to service and maintain the modern vehicle."

"We service and repair all makes and models," said Jane.

"We offer trailer hire, trailer servicing and caravan servicing."
"We have two courtesy cars for customers to hire when their car is in our workshop."
"There is not much we can’t do," she added.
