ABOUT US

WHY CHOOSE US

Ever get stuck working on your car? Whether its; not having enough clearance, hard to reach spaces, neighbours giving you trouble? Don’t like working on your car in your driveway? Or out on the street?

Well, SSA has found the solution. We started this business because we where in the same situation as you. The water pump went out, the jack didn’t provide enough clearance, people weren’t happy with us working on the street. Along with that, the dealership quoted us $3,500 for the part and installation. I could purchase the genuine part off them for $450. I wasn’t about to pay someone more than $3,000 for 2-3 hours of labour. As such, Self Serve Automotive was born.
