With a year ahead where driving holidays will be high on the agenda, we need to make sure we are ready and safe for the coming drive-a-thons.

Keeping your car safe and reliable shouldn’t be a difficult or scary proposition. Chris will give you the tools and knowledge to take control. Knowing what you can do yourself, what questions to ask of your mechanic and what to expect with maintenance and servicing.

What will we cover?

Chris will be walking you through this session, taking a look with you at what is under the bonnet and answering questions! This is absolutely a safe zone – there are no silly questions!

The session into split into 3 parts:

  1. What is servicing and how does it work
  2. What can I/should I be doing myself
  3. What ifs – what should I do if X happens

This will be a hands-on/practical session, run in front of a car with the bonnet up (over zoom)

    What will you need?

    • The ZOOM meeting platform on your computer, mobile or tablet device. See below for further details.
    • Pen, paper or your preferred note taking device
    • Your ears, some enthusiasm and maybe a question that you have.

    Who will be teaching?

    Chris Peile deals with questions day-in/day-out as he owns and runs Melbourne North Service Centre in Arden St, North Melbourne.

    Chris brings a unique view to the ‘encrusted’ world of mechanical repairs with a Bachelors of Mechanical Engineering as well as a Masters of Business Administration and has worked across a number of sectors including investment banking, business consulting, project management and engineering.
