At Toms Autos we pride ourselves in being a company who strives to achieve a high standard of vehicle maintenance at an affordable price for our customers whilst also being specialists in Total Oil. This was recognised at the 2012 MTA Wellington Regional MTA awards where we were awarded Wairarapa's Top General Repairer.
We took over Toms Autos in 2007 from Richards parents who ran a successful workshop for over 40 years. As five times New Zealand Rally Champions, we decided it was time we used our extensive knowledge of vehicle maintenance and preparation to bring Wairarapa a top level workshop whilst having no manufacturer association to keep costs down. We have put our vehicles through extreme conditions requiring meticulous car preparation. Our experience of this top level of motorsport means we can put our extensive testing into practice when it comes to looking after your vehicle to ensure its safety and reliability for you and your family
We have a great new workshop premises; here we can provide an even better service through a large parking area, modern and clean workshop with the latest electronic scan tool equipment and easy walking accessibility to Masterton Township.
A key component to the success of Toms Autos is through the use of quality technicians and quality products that are right for your vehicle, utilizing trusted leading industry brands. Through extensive history in top level motorsport we recommend and use excellent brands - Total Oil, Ironman 4x4, Mickey Thompson Tyres, Rhino Rack, Exide Batteries, Dunlop and many more supply products to our workshop so customers can be assured their vehicles will be treated professionally, effectively and efficiently on all levels
We have taken great pride in handpicking our excellent technicians who work for our customers to ensure clear lines of communication over vehicle requirements. Many of our Technicians have even trained and worked at Franchise dealers such as Toyota, Ford and Holden.
We are conveniently located right in the heart of Masterton township with a gate combination on offer for early drop off's or late pick ups.
We have built up a team of 9 in our workshop and we are very proud of the service we provide. We offer comprehensive motor vehicle repairs and servicing and aim to cater for all your automotive needs.
