"Fixing cars is not just a job to us. It's a passion that we pursue, even in our own time. We take pride in each and every car and work hard to ensure all of our work is of the highest standards."
Blackheath Automotive Services has been in business since 1997, and opened its newly remodelled facility at 216 Great Western Highway, Blackheath in September of 2005. The site has been a stalwart presence in the local automotive industry, and was originally a garage for sightseeing trips around the Blue Mountains in 1916. The garage began to be used for automotive repair in the 1920s and has kept that purpose ever since. Mr. Ross Hatswell owned the repair shop for 55 years, and in late 1997 it was sold to George and Stephanie Vergotis, who have been operating it ever since.
Within a short period of time, they realised that the automotive industry was changing and they needed a newer, larger facility to keep apace. They considered renovating the existing garage, but ultimately decided that new construction would better meet the needs of Blackheath Automotive Services and its customers.
In the words of owner George Vergotis, “Our aim was to offer excellent customer service and comfort while maintaining our old competitive rates, as well as not only meeting but exceeding environmental and safety standards."
Working closely with the Blue Mountains City Council, the owners made sure the new building would meld with its surrounding, yet still have all the necessary environmental control systems and top-of-the-line equipment for diagnostic and maintenance services. The owners also made sure customer service would continue to be the company’s top priority. The new facility has three courtesy cars with complimentary delivery and pick-up service.
Blackheath Automotive Services continues its tradition of giving customers a free car wash every time they come in for service, but has also added a hand car wash staffed by a full-time attendant. In the local area, Blackheath Automotive Services is the only company that offers full interior and exterior cleaning services. Always aware of the environmental impact, only tank water is used for washing cars, and all waste materials are recycled.
