Ar min has owned Kingston Auto Repairs for the past 20 years. His business, which began as a two-bay garage at the back of Channel Court, now employs six mechanics, among them (from left) Michael Nauta, Armin, Simon Visser and Dan Blight. While they have a special interest in 4WD repairs and servicing, Ar min's team is well-equipped to handle a wide range of jobs, particularly major mechanical work. "One of our specialties is pre-trip ser vicing for 4WD vehicles and caravans," Armin told us. "I'm a keen four-wheel driver and I know that if you're preparing for the big trip around Australia, it pays to make sure your vehicle is in excellent shape for the challenge." Armin is also a recently-retired karting enthusiast -- several of his racing karts are on-sale in the workshop, as well as plenty of karting gear. Ready to race? Give him a call! 30 Invermay Road Launceston www.murfettsautoelectrical.com.au 6331 7640 When we called to talk to Paul Murfett he was in the middle of transferring an electronically-controlled trailer-braking system from a Lex us to a new BMW. When his father Geoff started the business 30 years ago, there was no such thing! Paul started in the auto- electrical trade in 1985 and took over the operation when Geoff retired. In the past 25 years, he has seen some major changes in the auto- electrical industry. "We are constantly learning about new technology and we use the inter net regularly to keep up with infor mation about today's new vehicles," Paul says. "A rapidly-changing automotive industry requires us to remain in touch with emerging technology and the net certainly assists greatly." Today, he and Jason Milner handle a full range of auto -electrical repair and installation work, from air conditioning to GPS, from mobile phone accessories to power windows.
