Charlie was both friendly and professional. I was able to grab a coffee and bite up the road as he only took 40minutes to service the car. He was great at explaining the issue with the car, even used props. I'll be going back to him in the future!

Live locally to Charlie and even if I lived 2 hours away I'd still drive all that way for him to service my car. Best guy, super helpful and explains things in detail. Couldn't recommend him enough!

I got a service from Charlie at my home address and it was a smooth and professional operation.He was on time, polite, knowledgeable, fair in pricing and efficient.He also didn’t speak down to me regarding my vehicle which does irritate me with some mechanics.I was so happy with the service he provided I’d use him for any future work he’s set up to do and I’d 100% recommend him to anyone.

Charlie made what is normally an ordeal for me (sorting out how to get to and from a mechanic, only to be sold a bunch of unnecessary extras) an absolute breeze. Honest, friendly and refreshingly free of BS, Charlie got to it while I sat in a cafe munching on the smashed avo toast I could afford from not going to a big garage franchise.You've got my continued business, mate, and that of the friends and family who I'll be directing your way!

Flexible, reliable and efficient car service from Charlie at CB Auto Service. Was even able to reschedule me dropping the car to him at his home workshop short notice. Would recommend to friends and use his mechanical servicing again. Thanks

Charlie was good enough to make time to service my car before I drove down south. He was efficient and thorough and reasonably priced. Absolutely recommend CB Auto Service.

Hi! Charlie came out to us to attend to an annoying issue with our son's car leaking oil. The problem is still being sorted, but Charlie has been great, offering good old fashioned service that is so hard to come by these days. He is reliable, very thorough, and is keeping us well informed with where he is at with regards to accessing parts etc. We highly recommend his very convenient service.

If I lived in Perth, Charlie would definitely be my mechanic!. I arrived in Perth with less than 24 hours until I traded in my vehicle and its showing an orange engine code. I felt sick... Even though I never got to meet Charlie, I will be forever grateful for his text messages with very valuable advice. Charlie, I really hope I get to hand over some money to you one day because you are an absolute gem!! When your a tradesman your time is so valuable and you gave me yours for free..... You deserve all the money and customers in the world. I wish there were more people in the world like you. Thank you so much. I love that you love running your own business! You are exactly where you need to be 🙂

Charlie is a great guy he performed a logbook service on my car, he arrived on time, his work is very clean and meticulous attention to detail. His pricing is comparable to what I’ve been paying at garages. He is happy to show and explain any genuine issues with the car, and can even diagnose and reset your cars computer, something other garages don’t often do. No more missing work or getting a taxi or friend to pick you up, most services are complete in under two hours so you don’t loose your car for the whole day.

Charlie was very thorough with checking all possible causes to try and find the issue with my Hyundai Elantra. He was great at explaining in layman’s terms what he was doing and what could be the problem. Charlie was very honest when he said he was only 80% sure it was the fuel pump and agreed when I said I’d get a Hyundai Dealer service department to look at it too. Charlie is excellent with communication, including phone calls and answering texts, and also punctual - coming to look at my car at the time he said he would. He’s a trustworthy guy and I’m getting a quote to replace the fuel pump 🙂

Charlie is an awesome mechanic. Super quick to diagnose the intermittent fault I’ve been having with my car for over 2 years. He was happy to share his wealth of knowledge to help me understand the problem too. I highly recommend him.

Charlie was honest, friendly and reliable, arriving exactly at our agreed time. He completed the alternator exchange quickly and efficiently and the cost was exactly what he had quoted. Great service and I would have no hesitation in recommending Charlie at all. Thanks again Charlie for the great service.

Book A Mechanic You Can Trust Today

In today’s fast-paced world it’s often difficult to find the time to take your car to a workshop for servicing and repairs. In most cases you’re required to drop off and pickup your car leaving you without a vehicle for the day – even for just routine maintenance. That’s where CB Auto Service comes in. As a mobile mechanic in Perth we come to your home or office to provide a wide range of services, from oil changes and brake repairs to engine tune-ups – everything needed to keep your car well maintained, safe & reliable.

Best of all as a mobile mechanic in Perth we remove the hassle of coordinating your day around dropping off and collecting your car – you’re only without your car whilst it’s being worked on. As a result we can offer a convenient and cost-effective solution for keeping your car in top condition.


What is a basic service?

A basic service is the baseline routine maintenance your car needs to be safe and reliable. It’s often called different names, like a minor service or an essential service etc. Basically they all mean the same thing, but depending on the workshop can be handled very differently.

A basic car service is essentially an engine oil change with a series of visual inspections of the key components and systems of the car including things like the brakes, tyres, suspension, exterior lighting etc. That’s the difference between just an oil change and a car service – an oil change alone isn’t enough as it doesn’t include a thorough check of the vehicle.

At CB Auto Service we pride ourselves on providing a comprehensive basic service designed to focus on the most important things – those that will keep your car as safe and reliable as possible

How much does a car service cost?

The cost of a car service depends on the type of vehicle, the type of service needed, the parts and how long the service will take.

For a basic car service (or minor car service as it’s also called) the key factor in determining how much a service will cost is the engine oil change – the quantity and quality of engine oil and the type of oil filter needed. Since every vehicle will have different requirements, the cost of car service will also vary.

When you see a fixed price for a car service, which some places may offer, that price has been set on a number of assumptions and more than likely a certain type of oil, which may be completely unsuitable for your vehicle, may end up causing engine damage and reduce the reliability the lifespan of your car. Especially if the price is too good to be true!

How often should you service your car?

The frequency of car servicing depends on the type of service, the make and model of the car, the car’s warranty, and how you drive the car. There are two periods of car life: under warranty and outside of warranty.

Generally speaking, a basic car service is recommended every six months or every 10,000 kilometers (whichever comes first) when outside of your warranty.

Cars are expensive and complex machines with many moving parts and complicated systems, and like any complex machine require regular maintenance. Generally we use our cars everyday and rely on our cars to get us to where we need to go.

To keep your car safe and reliable, regular car servicing is essential. This is because everything important is inspected and checked to ensure that any potential problems are identified before they turn into serious issues.

Just one example, during a basic service your battery will be checked. If it’s tested and shows signs of being weak, then replacing it will ensure you won’t be left stranded with a car that won’t start (let’s be honest if it’s going to happen then it will likely happen at the worst possible time too). As a driver and non-mechanical person, you might not be able to tell any symptoms of a bad battery, since they have a nasty habit of failing completely unexpectedly.

Bottom line, if you get your car serviced regularly it will be in better condition, safer, more reliable, last longer and be worth more if you decide to sell it.

How can car owners keep service costs down?

Owning and maintaining a car can be expensive, so it’s understandable that we all want to keep the costs down.

Car maintenance really involves two main things; regular car servicing (routine maintenance) and repairs which may be required periodically (for example replacing brakes, or a battery etc). Understanding the correct type of regular servicing for your vehicle is the first step toward keeping the costs down. If you are outside of your car’s warranty period then you can perform a basic service rather than a log book service.

Regular servicing is then the second step. This is because everything important is inspected and checked to ensure that any potential problems are identified before they turn into serious issues which may be avoidable, leading to costly to repair.
