W.O.F.'S, Automotive Service, Repairs for all
makes and models of vehicles in the Whangarei region 

We offer  a free battery check if you are at all concerned that it may be getting low - nothing worse than dashing out in the morning to go to work and the car won't start!
 You also need to make sure your tyres have enough tread - With all the road works and travelling up metal roads in  Northland you need a good set of tyres to ensure a good grip.  We can check this for you.
 We are a Whangarei Automotive Repair  MTA approved workshop and do automotive repairs on all makes and models.
 Our technicians are fully trained in the use of our  up to date computers and are able to diagnose any fault your vehicle may have.  All  modern vehicles have many computer systems controlling all kinds of functions and this has become a big part of servicing and maintaining vehicles today.
 If you have a light showing on your dash that is not normally there call in and see us, we can put the scanner on your vehicle and then talk to you about what the problem is and will give you a quote for the cost of the repair while you are here.
 When purchasing a vehicle it pays to have a Pre-Purchase Vehicle Inspection done.  This takes one hour and we provide you with a full report on the vehicle.  Can save some distress later.

Kelly (Kelvin) Miru - Owner Operator  


The time has come…

I’m handing over the reins of Kelly’s Automotive to a younger model. Business as usual, the team Sue, Willy & Liz will be here to make sure you continue to get the great service “Kelly’s Auto” is famous for. Stefan & Jacques are looking forward to meeting you all, they start bright and early on Monday 13th August.  I will be working with them for a couple of weeks so pop in and say goodbye to me and hi to them. Before you ask, I have no plans other than heading to Raro and doing a little fishing… Thank you all for you support and friendship over the years, I have enjoyed seeing “Kelly’s Auto” become one of Whangarei’s leading automotive workshops.  I look forward to seeing you all out and about in Whangarei as I enjoy the new role…
