    "I cannot recommend Steve enough!!! I came in willing to spend 3K on a complete rewiring of my antique 35y old L200. It seemed the only solution as it had ongoing electrical faults for years (difficult engine starting, cross wired low/high beam, dead indicators on dashboard). Every fix by others (even car electricians) in town seemed to clear one problem and two new ones occurred. Steve went through five years of 'service' reports and then diagnosed the complete system in detail. He quoted me for every single detail to the penny. Not only he found and fixed the cause of a major voltage drop from the coil also corrected all wiring to its original lining and fixed every single electrical problem! He went on, completely refurbished the carburetor and repairing the fuel supply / mixing system. The list of details of what he fixed was literally 3/4 of a page long. Here is one example how well he knows his business. He figured that because the engine is burning a little bit of oil its firing too hot damaging the standard spark plugs I had been sold. For a few dollars more he put spark plugs in for higher temperatures. Also recommended to use highest octane fuel for better economy. Lots of tips from Steve for better handling and managing the old beauty. I ended up paying just under 2K for fixing 3 times the issues I had in mind initially. Had I mentioned he did this pretty much over Saturday/Sunday. Just for comparison, parts: Steve charged $48 for a new high beam which cost me $129 the last time it was replaced by a car electrician in Newtown. Thank you very much Steve! I will be back soon."

    "Tidy Car was recommended to me by a friend. Niko, was excellent to deal with. Prompt and friendly. Our car required the removal of a smell created from a spill in the boot. Niko provided options and recommendations on how best to fix the problem. The job was completed to our entire satisfaction and before the original time frame. Highly recommend.

The work was done on time and budget and the car was detailed before it was returned. Wouldn't hesitate to use them again and would recommend them without reservation."

    "We chose this car grooming business after reading the great reviews on No Cowboys - plus the added bonus of a courtesy car. From start to finish it was a pleasure dealing with Steve, Jude and the team at Tidy Car - a truly customer focused and honest business. The interior of our BMW (1999) looks and smells like a new car. We'll definitely be bringing in our other car in for the same treatment soon. Thoroughly recommend."

    "Steve provided us with a clear estimate of the work to be done & related costs, and took the time to explain repairs that were essential, and those less pressing. Agreed upon repairs were made in a timely fashion and on budget. Steve and his team went above and beyond to insure the van was safe to drive & that we could depart Wellington on time. They worked wonders on our old van. Steve is not only the best mechanic we’ve seen in NZ, but by far the nicest. We highly recommend Tidy Cars."

    "Steve at tidy car did a brilliant job on my carburettor recently so I had some more work for him. He made a fitted a custom tow bar for me two days before Christmas with only one day's notice!! My VW also had terminal air cond problems and he used amazing kiwi lateral thinking and some plumbing skills to sort that out. He did that when I just dropped in for advice about it!! This guy never seems to says no and is very quickly becoming my trusted 'go to guy' for anything automotive."

Great service, and to follow up with a phone call during the long trip north was excellent. Fantastic effort to Steve and his team and all the best for Xmas and the upcoming New Year. Regards Jeff"

He shows great skill and passion when working on my car. i am very particular who works in my car and Steve has proved himself As a man of honesty and integrity in this dog eat dog world. He recently sourced a new chev engine for my car and completed the build and installation to a really high standard. He showed real common sense when confronted with issues or extra work at short notice. His follow up service holds true with his high standard of work.

    "I approached this company after finding Tidy Cars on the internet & looking at the effort put into the website and reading the ratings on this site, I decided to give them a go and I was not disappointed.

    A prompt response was received from my email to book the car in for a exterior groom.On arrival I was greeted by a friendly communicative response. I found Nico very obliging and nothing was too much trouble. He explained the 3 stage cut and polish process involved along with offering touch up paint repairs and De greasing of the body to remove tar spots. Timings and costs were explained and agreed. The car was presented ahead of schedule and I was blown away by the showroom look to the car, bearing in mind the car (a Nissan 350Z sports car) is 11 years old! It looks fantastic and can not recommend Tidy Cars Ltd higher. They were great to deal with and will have no hesitation in using there services again. Alistair"

    "Took my Saab to tidy car to have some rust from a battery acid spill cleaned up and repainted, new tyres fitted, and a WOF issued. All of this work was completed within a day - past experiences with other garages made me think this work would take more than one day so I was pleasantly surprised. Tidy Car also provided me with a complimentary interior and exterior groom, so the Saab looks like brand new now.

    If you have a car you love and want to keep in good order, I highly recommend this company."

    "I took my car to Tidy Car purely on the back of all these great reviews. My car had mould growing in the back seat, moisture on the carpets and a horrible damp smell. Having been told by another garage to take it to be professionally groomed before leak testing, Adrian advised a leak test first otherwise the groom could be a complete waste of my money. He found 3 leaks in the end so I was very pleased this was done. It was a big job to fix and then clean but Adrian was very professional and thorough, gave good advice, kept me updated with what was happening and got my permission before carrying out work. Any dealings I had with the other guys (one drove me to work when I dropped the car off) were also very positive. I got my car back today (delivered to work) and it looks and smells lovely. I have a very detailed invoice to remind me exactly what was done and I would definitely use them again based on this job. Having a garage that does the grooming and the mechanical is brilliant. Thanks guys."

    "We were looking for a better servicing station/garage after having several bad experiences with few garages in Wellington. I looked for a garage in the city and found Tidy Cars and decided to give it a go. Eventhough I called and asked to be booked the same day, Steve was very accommodating and squeezed me into their busy schedule. After a few hours he called me and gave a detailed pricing of what needed to be done. After office I picked up the car and was surprised because they even gave it a complimentary cleaning... Really impressed with their service and their honesty. Would definitely come back and even recommend to my friends."

    "Hired a car when visiting Wellington recently and scraped the rear bumper on a concrete wall when backing. Didn't want to leave myself at the mercy of hire co, its insurer or repairer, individually or combined. Car's distributor suggested I contact Tidy Car. Needed the car to be fixed before flying back to ChCh that evening.
    Described the damage, Tidy Car quoted and I got the car to them ASAP.
    Repair and painting was to be done before 5-30 same day and they were. Little anxious as 5-00 approached and no car but Steve said not to worry as they would drive us to friend's home, wait while we finished packing and drive us back to Haining St to collect our as new rental. I call that service with knobs on and thank you Steve and your fellow workers, all delivered with a smile. Best wishes, Murray

    "These guys are awesome! I had our car booked in for a panel insurance job. At the same our ute failed a WOF epically and we were quoted an equally epic price to fix it. Under some pressure time wise, we took it to Steve to look at.. Not only did he pulled out all the stops to get the work done in a short period of time, but he did so with utmost profession and at a price sharper than what we had been quoted.

    Since we had such a great result on the ute, we asked Steve to do some significant mechanical work on our Holden while it was getting the panel beating done too. We had the use of a courtesy car, Steve was very happy to explain our options (which other service centres had simply looked for a quick buck) he recommended in our best interest. His quotes were spot on and both cars run like a dream. Even though he was extremely busy, he always had time to discuss and fit into our timeframes which were pretty inflexible! To get the cars back beautifully groomed is the icing on the cake. Thanks Steve & co! Already recommending you around town."

    "Came from Auckland with friends who were mechanics that usually fixed my car. Moved to welly 6 months ago, without knowing anyone who I can trust to fix my car, I checked out this site and saw the only recommended mechanic in well cbd. Having doubts with this place and the website, my only option was to take it to tidy cars with my broken car.

    WHAT A SUPRISE! from a phone conversation to finish Steve did an AWESOME JOB. He quoted be with every single detail down to the hair with the exact price. The job would have atleast took 3 days but was done in 6 hours with my car fully cleaned up washed, polished and vaccumed which i didnt even expect. Similar service quality to BMW JC in Auckland bringing in a new car for service. Steve and the team have awesome teamwork, and everyone was friendly. You can tell right away that they take pride in what they do with honesty leads to success in this business. Dont let their presentation fool you from the beginning. The outside parking may slightly look like a typical grease monkey but once you walk into their workshop you can sense a genuine working environment for mechanics. Service, Quality and price is very very impressive, but dont expect magic because the staff need to eat! Thanks again Steve! will be back!"

    "I decided to take in my car to have a full service inspection and a repaint work on the bumper at Tidy Car because of the good reviews from this website. It was also very convenient that Tidy Car can do both mechanical and paint job.

    Not only was the quality of their job absolutely outstanding but also how they proceeded with their job was great. Steve and Adrian called me a couple of times to make sure what was needed to be done and fully explained about the prices. Steve also gave me free advice on how to go about selling my car. Tidy Car truly lives up to its objective that they try to provide "1st class service and professional consultation to make your car like new" and that their top priority is customer satisfaction. I would definitely come back here if I need to and recommend others to do so too."

    "These guys valeted the inside, cleaned the outside, and touched up some paint chips on my Honda that I was selling and they did a fantastic job. I then got them to clean our Volvo to get it ready to ship to Australia (Australia has rigorous import standards) and again they did a great job. They were very easy to deal with, fitting our job in when asked. They picked the car up from our place and dropped it back again. There was very clear communication about how much it was going to cost as well. I would highly recommend this business. Seriously the Volvo looked like a new car."

    "Took my primera in after it failed a warrant, had several different issues that would have taken too long to get it done on my own running around. Tidy Car did it all for a hugely cheap price. I dropped the car off at 8am and had it back that afternoon. Not only that, the whole car was groomed. All part of the service. Happy to recommend. Ill definitely be back next time I need something done to my car."

They were patient with the insurance company who took their sweet time, and then completed the job within a matter of days to a high standard. My car looks and feels brand new! They even gave it a much needed clean inside and out for free! Definitely recommend!"

    "Tidy car has been my preferred business for all car-related requirements since I have been in the Wellington region over the past 18 months. I am extremely happy with their top-quality work on my car. This includes panelbeating, rust repairs, mechanical repairs, WOFs, parts, and assistance with emergency accident solutions. Tidy Car's high standard of repair work has been wonderful, and also very reasonably priced. Tidy car are very efficient, and great at sourcing affordable parts too. The customer service at Tidy Car has been absolutely outstanding. Tidy Car have consistently gone out of their way to help me with all my vehicle needs.

    "I have used Tidy Cars before for small clean up inside jobs. This time round I got a little more done. The 1999 Mazda came up far beyond expectations. They even went the extra mile and managed to get paint spray off the body and windows. Polished the alloy wheels. Now she looks like a reasonable new car. Adrian also advised on an Insurance possible claim.
    Question. How did they get the windows so clean?

    "I rung Tidy Car in a state after a house move and that my poor car had a litre of canola oil split on the passenger seat, and footwell.

    Adrian advised over the phone that I needed to get an insurance claim underway and what was needed to get my car back up to it's former glory. Tidy Car also worked with StreetSoundz to get the whole car stereo going again after the clean even though this took a week longer than planned they allowed for it.

    The end result was perfect, and since it was such a mess after the move I didn't have to clean it at all. No bad oil smell and had a few extras done while it was in. Adrian had it looking better than when I got it out of the car yard. I will definitely call in again to have it cleaned."

They also helped me get it road worthy by doing a full service and fixing the issues that came from this (after checking with me).

    "I can't recommend this business highly enough. Steve, Adrian and their teams are simply amazing. I booked in for a mechanical service and groom, which was done promptly and to perfection. Steve called earlier than expected with clear details about what was needed and the cost. Adrian worked hard on the grooming to remove a strong cigarette smell from the previous owner, and so very kindly did a significant amount of work at a discounted price - the car looked and smelled fabulous afterwards, and still does. I found them to be extremely obliging, friendly and kind, knowledgeable, fast and efficient & communicative. If you want your car to run like a dream rather than just be warrantable, and to look like it just stepped out of a salon, and if you want to support a top notch local business which runs an ethical business model, you won't use anyone but Tidy Car. I won't be going anywhere else again."

    They even did some unrelated (but physically close ) patches of rust, and didn't charge for the extra work. Over and above the call of duty!

    "Tidy Car were absolutely brilliant. I initially went in for some rust removal for my WOF on my '89 Corolla and the lads actually worked the job around my crazy shift work hours so I could still use my car when I needed it. Steve even took my car back to VTNZ when they were done with the rust to get it WOFed so I wouldn't have to.

    I ended up seeing the lads again a second time when an oil valve became clogged making a hell of a mess. I also had a broken window (it was a bad week for my car). They took my car in straight away, fixed it including the window, cleaned it, detailed the car for free, replaced a shoddy wiper blade for free, and again worked around my pain-in-the-rear shift work hours. The prices were totally reasonable and affordable and the lads were all lovely to deal with. These guys get my highest recommendation. The prices were"

    "Adrian and the crew at Tidy cars have done work for me on two occasions now. My partners 1986 Vw golf convertible and my 1969 vw 411. I had used a couple of other places in Wellington before and was never really happy with the result they provided. I went and saw Adrian at Tidy cars and was immediately impressed with his passion and attitude. Although the price was higher than most i left the car with him.I had spent alot of money on having the car restored and it was a gift for my partner. When Adrian rolled up outside the house and i saw what they had done i was astounded! the detailing on the engine, the shine on the paint work. just simply stunning. Well worth the extra money . Great communication, a care for the results and fun to deal with were a perfect package. Since then he has done my 69 411 and weaved similar magic on that too. I wont go anywhere else. 3 years after doing the golf it needs a re fresh. 3 years is a long time in my opinion . Golf is booked in . i await another stunning transformation."
