Bill is as close as you can get to a pure mechanic. Honest, genuine, skilled, great value! He fixed my car for $80 after a $400 job at another mechanic was still causing issues. No showbiz, or fancy discounts - just pure and quality fixes. Bill has a genuine care-factor, which is a very rare quality in mechanics these days. I would highly recommend Bill.

Awesome service. I took my car in for an expected fault and Bill took it for a spin to check if anything was wrong - it wasn’t! He didn’t charge me a thing, but very kind of him to double check (and give me tips about petrol, cleaning and tyre pressure!) I’ll be back for a full service. Thanks!

When I had a complete engine failure in Melbourne, visiting from Sydney, Richmond Automotive was recommended to me by a trusted local. Bill and his crew looked after me, making me feel like I was with my most trusted and professional mechanics at home. Bill kindly stayed back after hours waiting for the tow truck, diagnosed the problem on the spot and ran me through all my options. Richmond Automotive went all the way to liaise with NRMA to arrange delivery of my vehicle back to Sydney as well. If I lived in Melbourne I would want Richmond Automotive looking after my car full time! Friendly and professional and efficient to the max, they are the best.

02:24 09 Sep 20
Seriously these guys are amazing !!! SUPER HELPFUL ! I went for a roadworthy they discovered some issues and gave me super fair quotes because they totally understood my situation and were absolutely helpful. They gave me different options on what to do even tho it wasn’t for their profit, they really showed empathy THANK YOU SO MUCH !!!! Hard to find mechanic as good and especially HONEST as these guys, thank you again and all the best.
02:21 25 Jul 20

Nice service, very helpful staff
02:41 31 May 20
I took my car to Richmond Automotive for what I expected to be a simple road worthy examination and unfortunately, several things required fixing. Having been ripped off my mechanics in the past, my initial feelings were that it was happening again, however Bill has changed that perception. He went through every defect, showing me exactly what was wrong as well as educating me on why these were issues. He really went above and beyond to provide me with a great experience which has restored my faith in mechanics.I look forward to bringing future cars to Bill at Richmond Automotive as I can trust he will do the right thing by me.

We came to Bill for a roadworthy check and he not only did a great job but he also came in on Easter weekend especially for us! Thanks a lot Bill!
23:05 23 Mar 20
I called Bill in regards to a vehicle I was considering purchasing. Several times. He was very honest and forthcoming with his advice, and advised me against buying this car, which would have been good $ for him to fix, but could have ended up being a complete lemon. Honest mechanics are surely hard to find in this day and age, thanks Bill for your advice and time, will keep you in mind for future work I require.
05:07 23 Mar 20
Hey BillThank you for taking care of my Mitsubishi Pajero and letting me it park one day in-front of your garage for one day.
11:47 20 Mar 20
It's quite difficult to find reliable mechanic especially for the people who are unfamiliar with cars, however, this place must be one of the most reliable mechanic in Melbourne. Great Service, friendly staff and reliable professional skills and knowledge. Thank you.
19:28 14 Mar 20
Bill is great, been using him for years
23:26 04 Mar 20
A big thanks to Bill who kindly looked over my car at a moment's notice on a Saturday morning, free of charge. He diagnosed my noisy steering quite quickly and gave me good advice on the next steps to resolve it. He also checked out a couple of other things with the car and gave me feedback on that too.Follow-up review:Another review for Bill at Richmond Automotive, following a new (totally unrelated) issue my car experienced. I was especially worried as I was in the process of selling my car when an ignition coil unexpected failed during a customer test drive. To keep the customer interested, I needed it fixed asap. Again, Bill was able to see me at short notice (the very next day). He instantly diagnosed the problem and fixed it that day (along with some other minor works he suggested for roadworthy purposes). I appreciated his honest assessment of the problem and catering for me when I needed it. He even helped me out by driving my car back to my home as I wasn't able to get to his workshop in time (I just live around the corner though - I can't say he'd offer that service to everyone haha, but it was certainly a kind gesture for me at the time).
03:57 01 Mar 20
Dealt with bill who couldn’t possibly have done more for me! Great garage would highly recommend!
01:58 19 Feb 20
Excellent customer service. Professional and genuine staff. Highly recommended.
22:01 18 Feb 20
Absolutely amazing experience! I was told by mechanics at auto tune that my transmission seal needed replacing which is a pretty pricey job. I wasn’t sure that it was necessary as the car is pretty new. Took it to the legends At Richmond automotive, took him 5 minutes to show me exactly what’s going on with the car, he was honest and quick. I walked out 10 minutes later with the biggest smile and a car with a clean bill of health. I will always go back to these guys. You can’t find a more honest and reliable, old school mechanic!
02:52 15 Feb 20
Amazing at their work with extreme knowledge and no time wasted. Straight to the point with affordable prices
01:39 15 Feb 20
Highly recommend Richmond Automotive. Bill was able to check out my car with extremely short notice and diagnosed the issue without any charge. Definitely will be returning here in future! Thanks again Bill! Your fantastic service was much appreciated during a stressful time!

Good quick roadworthy.
05:57 31 Jan 20
Very fast job, friendly guy and good price.
03:49 25 Jan 20
What a legend Bill and the team were. I walked in off the street with a blown tyre and they offered to drive to my car which wasn't onsite and help with a bunch of things to get me back on the road and they weren't asking for a single dollar. All for free and out of good will. Definitely recommend these guys.
09:39 18 Jan 20
Genuine place to visit for any issues for your car. Helped me out on a Saturday evening when everyone else was closed. Would definitely recommend.
09:19 04 Jan 20
We were lucky to find this mechanics at the end of the day on Saturday. He took a lot of time for us to explain everything (not a easy task when you know nothing about mechanics and when your English is approximatite).Thank you very much, the next time that I'll have a problem, I'll come again with pleasure.
01:07 14 Dec 19
Friendly guy, great advice.
23:00 25 Nov 19
Fantastic mechanic. Practical and down to earth bloke you can trust. Had a rattle in my old Peugeot and he opened up the engine and found it was the fan rattling on the front spoiler. Fixed it in a jiffy with no charge.
03:47 26 Oct 19
Very helpful, generous, skilled and professional. My old car is purring now. Thank you Bill and crew.

Bill saved the day when my car broke down and he managed to squeeze me in last minute! He explained to me what was wrong with it and showed me exactly the parts he needed to fix. He went above and beyond to get the parts required (he had to shut up shop and go to 2 different places to get them for me) and he did an excellent job. Highly recommend! Thanks again Bill!
05:39 22 Jan 19
05:50 11 Jan 19
Bill looked over the engine of my car after I had just bought it and was so helpful. Even spoke to the guy who I bought it off and had look over the car for me! Decent bloke!
