Was very helpful with questions and queries, when I took my car in for a quick look. Definitely use again!

Another car smashed into my front and left my bumper and front lights dangling, really awful. It was on Saturday in Toorak and very difficult to find an open mechanic to fix my car. My girlfriend recommended I go to Richmond Automotive. I sent my car there at 1:00pm and Bill and George were done fixing and touching up my smashed car by 3:30pm. Bill was quick to assess the damage and told me on the spot what options I had. I opted for the more affordable option to just fasten everything back together and touched up the front to make it look alright, the outcome was pretty impressive for what was given to him, and he only charged me $350 which was so worth it and also done within 3 hours on a Saturday! Simply amazing having you guys open on that day in that location, so convenient as well next to East Richmond Station and the Chapel Street tram line nearby.

As international students, we foundexceptional service at Richmond Automotive. The mechanic not only provided an excellent Roadworthy Certificate (RWC) for our car but also took time to explain the nuances of local car services. Their patience, clarity, and genuine care were remarkable. The work quality was excellent, ensuring our car's safety and reliability. Fair pricing and a friendly approach made our experienceeven better. It's rare to find such sincerity and dedication in the service industry Highly recommended for anyone seeking honest, top-quality car service. All the best Bill.(The suzuki man)

01:21 09 Nov 23
Highly recommend using their services!My friend and I found them to be very knowledgeable and professional. Quick and easy service, we will definitely be back.
01:18 09 Nov 23
Really helpful and professional. Highly recommended.
02:05 27 Oct 23
I would highly recommend. The mechanic helped me out when I was really in need. My front window was stuck and I couldn’t get it back up, he stopped what he was doing to help me right away and free of charge. A much nicer experience than the other garages I had visited before hand.
02:18 26 Oct 23
Bill was very helpful and was kind enough to squeeze me in without an appointment to check over my car! He was very helpful throughout the process I’ll definitely be back for a service in the future.

Bill was incredibly helpful diagnosing the problem with my van. His knowledge was evident from the moment we started talking on the phone. I highly recommend this business.
03:02 12 Oct 23
Tell what want, they deliver and get the work done ASAP! Brilliant!
07:13 04 Oct 23
Legends!!!These guys were unable to help me with what I was after, however pointed me in the right direction and recommended another mechanic to help with the work. I had been driving around melbourne getting no where, being over quoted and taken the Mickey off. These guys are trust worthy and only happy to take the time to help, provided me the advice and a solution. My VW van has never driven so good, and was fixed at an extremely reasonable price in the end.

Changed the strut on my cab causing me issues for weeks on a Saturday afternoon!
08:47 22 Sep 23
Highly recommend this mechanic shop. Good honest and high quality work. Bill and the team really helped me get my Yaris running well again, found the issues, fixed perfectly, didn’t over quote and honest feedback throughout. Just good old fashioned quality service.

I used this company for a car road worthy before registration - fast, efficient and friendly. Much better experience here, than at other local mechanics. Will definitely come here again!
01:11 24 Aug 23
Gave these guys a call a few months ago as my brakes were squeeking. They organised to have a look the next day. I came back after they investigated and said it wasn't a major brake issue ,they are just noisy. I expected to pay for their time, however they didn't charge me! Very kind of them.

04:56 03 Jun 23
Excellent customer service, I call for a enquiry and they take the time to explain me everything.
01:38 05 May 23
I thought I needed some work done on my breaks and took the car to Richmond Automotive. I discovered the brakes were good and there were no issues. Really great friendly service! Couldn’t recommend them highly enough. They are always prompt on contact and don’t do work when it’s not required.
23:19 27 Apr 23
Bill was extremely accommodating in squeezing me in for a last minute road worthy and I couldn't have been more impressed with his service. Will definitely be back for my next service and any work needed on all our cars
21:58 29 Mar 23
I gave these guys a call after seeing so many positive reviews. I don’t know much about cars and could have been fooled but Bill was very helpful & knowledgeable on the phone & when seeing the car explained the issue to me and explained how I could easily fix it myself. He did not change me. This will be my mechanic moving forward 👍 Classic 5star customer service
05:32 07 Mar 23
Very nice and fair people!
23:35 15 Feb 23
Well priced and gave good advice
00:14 19 Jan 23
Very helpful when I went in with no booking late on a Saturday evening. Was able to sort the issue out and be gone within 10 minutes.
03:36 19 Dec 22
Thank you for taking the time to check my car!! I called because I thought I had a problem with my car. The owner offered to drive my car to understand the sound I was hearing. He checked my car, explained the sound to me and gave me good advise without charging me.Amazing
01:04 08 Dec 22
Great service. My car had various problems, and I took it to Richmond Automotive. It has been checked exhaustively and fixed all issues by these experienced and friendly mechanics. In addition, the mechanics are very supportive, and they even came to the place where I pulled over my car and fixed issues in the engine. Their service charge is very cheap compared to the services they provide.
08:13 19 Nov 22
I went there on a Saturday needing help with locating the engine number.Staff were friendly, helped me with locating and cleaning the engine number and didn’t charge anything.

Bill was super helpful! I took my car in for a suspected fault and he took it for a drive, didn't charge me anything and took the time to explain things afterwards. He was happy for me to drop my car off with him at a moments notice and just a really nice person to deal with overall. Thanks, Bill!

Friendly team, the guys fit me in at super short notice when I needed help swapping my plates over and their prices are fair.
02:58 26 Feb 22
Bill was incredibly helpful and didn’t charge me anything! I had a specific issue that I didn’t know how to solve and he spent time talking me through how to fix it over the phone. He even got me to send pictures and called me back. Then once we knew what it was he recommended who could fix it because it wasn’t what he did.If you have any question, honestly just give this guy a call!
05:52 24 Feb 22
This place is the best! The guys are so friendly and really helped me out with my road worthy! The job was done so quickly and when I needed help with a few other bits they helped me out no problem!Also had great chats in the office! Haha ! Thanks guys! Steph

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.
23:51 16 Mar 21
