Please see our non-exhaustive list of services below!
MOBILE RV SERVICE
Whenever our customers cannot get to us, we go to them! We spend our summers trekking through the Ottawa Valley and vicinity to long-term campsites and driveways alike, taking on service calls to repair points of concern on trailers, RVs and motor homes.
Our technicians are here to diagnose, estimate and take on whatever repairs our people need. We’re not here to change over parts and empty wallets, our aim is to provide effective and swift service to our customers, returning them to their schedules in safe, roadworthy vehicles. We always do our best to give our customers a head’s up about potential vehicle issues we see on the horizon and always build our weekly schedule to best support our clients’ availability.
SAFETIES & INSPECTIONS
As a licensed Motor Vehicle Inspection Station, we take on and process DOT safeties and annual inspections for cars, trucks, leisure vehicles and other units constantly. Have any work required to pass your safety? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered, we’ll give you an estimate for repairs and get to work.
We’re ready to keep your fleet operational. We recognize the importance of keeping service vehicles up and running, and when they do break down, we’re here to get them back on the road as quickly as possible. We’re the proud maintenance shop for a number of fleets within the Ottawa region, including Roof Tops Roofing and Lawn & Order, and will clear a hoist as swiftly as we can to accommodate last-minute needs.
ROOF REPAIR & PROTECTION
We have over two decades of expertise in roof repairs and preventative maintenance and strongly believe in updating caulking and seeking out potential water entry points before large scale renovations are required. However, when unit roofs go soft from water invasion, age or membrane failure, we’re here as the experts on roof repair work and the only mobile unit prepared to do the work at the unit’s location (when unable to bring to our shop).
STRUCTURAL REBUILDS & WATER DAMAGE
Water damage is a common denominator in the leisure vehicle repairs we do. When left unchecked, water invasion quickly leads to the breakdown of structural integrity, as well as mould and mildew introduction. Our aim is always to prevent the need for large rebuilds, however when required, we can use our Sealtech machine to pinpoint the exact locations where units are leaking. Once leak points are sealed, we work to return the unit to its former condition, killing off mould growth, removing moisture and replacing, then refinishing interior and exterior components, whether it’s flooring, membrane, seals or benches and cabinetry. We’ve got you covered.
We keep numerous oil filters for a wide variety of vehicles constantly in stock, and if we don’t have your specific filter in our inventory, we can have the appropriate one here within the day to get your vehicle back on the road ASAP. We provide both regular and synthetic oil and will update your windshield sticker with the mileage reminder for when we should see you next.
Time for a tire swap? Whether it’s due to a season change or wear and tear, we’re here to source used or new tires for our clients, rims if required or desired, and will install and balance them for our customers efficiently. Tire changes on rims are $10/tire, off-rim tire changes are $20/tire. *for most vehicles* Additionally, we have used stock available, please inquire for prices and sizes!
