Hansens Auto Services – “The Originals”
April 1 of this year marked the start of a new era for Hansens, with Service Manager Stuart Williams becoming an equal partner in the business with Todd. Stuart, who worked for Hansens several years ago before returning to his hometown of Dunedin and working with European brands for 15 years, returned to work at Hansens a few months ago. Stuart’s experience is invaluable, having worked with Mercedes-Benz for 18 years and with Land Rover for approximately 12 years.
From an initial team of six people, the operation has grown over the years to now employ an excellent team of 21 people. This is a testament to the fact that Hansens is now the largest European service center in Queenstown.
Located just five minutes from downtown, are the Central Otago parts and service dealers for BMW, Mini, Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz, Volvo and Jaguar.
Hansens Auto Services also repairs and maintains all cars and 4x4s and is able to quickly diagnose faults using factory test equipment.
They have specialized training in a range of European vehicles and warranty service vehicles, so owners do not need to return to out of town dealerships for their vehicle to be serviced.
“We’re focused on customer service and being the best shop in town,” says Stuart.
Hansens Auto Services picks up and delivers vehicles to Cromwell. As a number of team members live there, it’s easy to organize.
“It saves customers the trouble of spending a day in Queenstown,” says Stuart. “It seems to be working pretty well.”
Of course, they pick up and drop off vehicles around Queenstown as well. And at Hansens Auto Services they will even wash your car – for free!
Make sure your vehicle complies with road regulations with Hansens. They carry out comprehensive safety checks on suitability guarantees for all makes and models of vehicles.
Hansens takes pride in its comprehensive WOF checks and makes no apologies for carrying out this safety check of your vehicle to the highest possible standard.
Something customers may not realize is that every WOF authority is checked by Land Transport to ensure that all inspectors, equipment and premises are at a high standard. This check lasts about four hours and one workshop is rated out of 3. In each of the last three Hansen checks by Land Transport they have achieved the highest possible score of 3, which they are very proud of.
If you need a WOF security check of your vehicle that you know will be complete, please consult the experts at Hansens.
