Our Show Up Service allows you to drive into our fitment centre and have your vehicle’s braking system assessed. Depending on the severity of the problem, we can fix or refit your brakes on the spot or make a scheduled arrangement to resolve the issue as soon as possible. It is crucial for your safety to have your brakes assessed. The discovery of a problem when you need to use them to stop at the red light might be too late.

We love cars. We live them, we breathe them, we stare at them, but we don't sleep wit them.
Founded in 2015, Juan Loubser decided it is time to take his passion for motoring further. He is still a broke idiot unable to fund his obsessions, but in the end, It’s about the cars. The old, the unknown, the “cheap-for-a-reason”, the ones that are really, really bad, and the forgotten.
While selling off your old car for cash, one thing that you have to always keep at the top of your mind is that you both i.e the buyer and the seller agree to a common payment medium to avoid any hassles in future and hence the process of selling off your car goes on smoothly. At times, it happens people fall prey to buyer’s intentions of selecting a payment method and end up ruining everything. The buyer may also force you to agree on a payment method that is of more comfort to them but remember to choose what you feel is good from the below-mentioned methods.
