Patrick started his career on Light vehicles and Garbage trucks. Then worked for Hastings Deering rebuilding engines before moving onto mining and earth moving equipment. He worked in the Queensland mining industry for over a decade before deciding to open his own mechanical workshop here in Gold Coast. Seeing the need for experienced heavy vehicle mechanics within the Gold Coast region, he expanded his original Gold Coast Brakes and Mechanical into a full service diesel repair operation.
Skip forward to today and Patrick has 8 mechanics operating out of the Ashmore workshop and is also providing mobile breakdown servicing. Gold Coast Brakes and Diesel is a family-owned and operated business with an experienced team available 24 hours a day.
Our team has a combined experience spanning 80 years within the diesel and heavy vehicle industries. We provide scheduled servicing, annual COI inspections, brake overhauls, clutch repairs, steering and suspension, drum and flywheel machining, pre-purchase inspection and roadworthy inspections, trailer brakes and repairs, caravan servecing and repairs, earthmoving equipment repairs, carbon cleaning and so much more! Offering these speciality mechanical services makes us your one-stop shop for all fleet and heavy vehicle requirements. Additionally, our workshop is also open Saturdays by appointment, to keep your vehicle’s downtime to a minimum.
