K1 Motors - Smash Repairs & Mechanics
12:35 20 May 22
Had to get some panels of my car changed and the guys at K1 Motors were so open and ready to help. It was clear they knew what they were doing; explained their process super clearly and answered all the questions I had. Great communication and really competitive price, overall amazing service! Thanks again K1 Motors

Alan and the team at K1 Motors were fantastic. They repaired and repainted my 98 MGF and when completed it looked like it had just come out of the factory 24 year ago. Front bumper repair and the re-spray was perfect. Even when I later found a very minor imperfection, Alan was very quick to get me back and it was addressed, again to perfection, in one hour. Price was also very competitive. Highly recommend K1.

Great Quality Service. Was recommended by a friend when I needed to get my roadworthy done. Alan was extremely easy to talk to and very helpful and honest. Couldn't be happier with the service and would highly highly recommend!
09:34 23 Feb 22
I had my car resprayed at k1 motorsAlan looking after me and my car as soon as I contacted him.very professional and they took no shortcuts respraying my car at a very reasonably price.I recommend this garage and I will be back,Thank you Alan
02:34 23 Feb 22
Owner extremely rude on first contact.Don't be fooled by the advertising.
07:56 26 Jan 22
Installed rear sensors. Job went well. However manager was very busy and didn’t have time to explain the work done. Questions were answered briefly and quickly.
22:15 17 Jan 22
Had always got my car serviced here. The team is not only efficient and most importantly, the service is reasonably priced. Unlike many big companies out there that charges double or triple for the exact same service. Definitely recommend !!
02:38 14 Jan 22
Years later, still think this place is the best! Alan and the team do great work. Mechanics with great skill and integrity. Five starts is not enough 🙂 Thank you!
01:11 12 Jan 22
Never trust this mechanics. They give false information over the phone just to get the booking fees. I went there for a rwc. On the phone i give them all information about my car and once there they charge me without doing any job telling me they dont repair jeep and European cars. That was a very very bad experience. Never never go there beleive me they just want to make easy money. And ypu ask them explanation they give silence they don't even expla8n you. They just ask for money. This mechanics is Very untrustworthy business and people. 100% NOT RELIABLE AND BAD SERVICE.
00:02 27 Oct 21
Good service . Prompt & professional . I even gave their details to my son to use their service when needed .
02:13 13 Oct 21
Came here for RWC. Very friendly and professional, and at a good price. Would definitely come here again.
23:25 18 Sep 21
Fabulous job on my car. Thanks Alan and the team. High quality work, timely and competitively priced.
23:59 01 Aug 21
Alan was great to work with, great service and good value, check out the coffee stand across the road!
10:44 14 Jul 21
Had a great experience with this guys, timely and very professional. My car looked brand new when they popped the hood after their standard service, I had trouble believing it.They also fixed an issue with the front panel of my car on the right side that was sticking out due to an incident where it came out after getting caught on a wooden log while reversing through the driveway due to poor visibility. They put everything back into place free of charge, every other place I've been to have quoted me $1000 to replace the whole panel with zero help.These guys will not only do a great job but will also save you money, that's real customer service!!!The mechanic actually told me, save your money, when he could have easily tried to upsell me on a number of things which I told needed replacing.Highly recommended!!! Excellent service!!
02:49 24 Jun 21
Rear sensors installed perfectly. Great job and friendly service. Would highly recommended. Thank you Alan and his team.
04:32 23 Jun 21
Was in and out within an hour. Fairly affordable and great, friendly service. There was a nice waiting room to sit in while my car was being worked on.
03:57 25 May 21
Great price and speedy service. Had rear sensors installed on my Subaru XV. Would recommend!
02:37 28 Apr 21
I took my car for a paint job to K1 Motors due to some sun damage at some areas, and also to replace a cracked windscreen. They did an excellent job! Alan was great to deal with. I also got my car back on time. So I was very happy. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to get such things done professionally for a fair price.
09:03 03 Apr 21
Very affordable and honest service. Large enough establishment and as a result no long waits.
05:21 31 Mar 21
Great service, very polite and efficient. Service was quick and informative
03:53 24 Mar 21
Typical overheating issue of Mini/PSA N18 engine related to a blown coolant temperature sensor detected & solved by Alan at K1 Motors.Alan is absolutely your guy for your cars.
03:14 20 Mar 21
Highly recommend this place for car servicing they do a great job are fast honest and have the best pricing in the area.
20:34 15 Mar 21
Daniel and his team are great. Installed parking sensors front and rear on short notice. Reasonably priced so it was worth the drive. Will be back when compatible head unit comes in
05:31 08 Mar 21
Family run by Alan and his wife. Straightforward and does not screw you over. Honest. Reasonable. Passed the brake test (I tell every new mechanic I have squeaky breaks...they do squeak abit... but i know they have life left in them). Honestly told me I had about 40% left, which is about right. Also didnt tell them about my old battery due for replacement (i had been keeping it topped up with a battery conditioner)...and correctly discovered the battery had dropped it's CCA (despite the indicator still being green). Engine oil service for a large falcon costs only $150. ZF Transmission filter pan and oil change (not flush) costs about $500. Not bad at all. They are busy for a reason. I didnt ask for it and they gave a free car to use in the interim (like... "here's the keys off you go". no paperwork. no fuss).
07:23 18 Feb 21
Excellent service and totally recommend. Alan was very nice and charge a reasonable price. Booked for a RWC a day prior, extremely satisfied with the service. Will definitely go back in the future if needed.
07:30 15 Feb 21
Painted my ducktail there and was satisfied with the quality of the pearl paint.
06:58 08 Feb 21
Excellent customer service and workmanship! Alan gives you great advice and does everything you ask at a reasonable price. Highly recommend!
06:22 03 Feb 21
We entrusted Alan and the Team at K1 Motors to repair and paint my Dads very rare and valuable Sport Car. This was a special job as this was a surprise present for my Dad! The experience was first class and the communication outstanding! The workshop was extremely clean and the staff well presented. The quality of their work lived up to all their good reviews which lead me to using K1 Motors in the first place.As a family we are glad we appointed them to complete the work! Alan was an absolute gentleman to work with and respectful and kind to my parents. We couldn't be happier! Thank you!
23:38 02 Feb 21
Extremely poor service, doesn't know anything about roadworthy. They advertise lower price but you end up paying double price. They don't go by the roadworthy checklist and just try to pick up little things to charge you. Wish I took my car to someone else
03:10 15 Jan 21
Great service at a great price and the quality is of the highest standard. After hitting a kangaroo in my mustang a new front bar was fitted and painted in 2 days. Could not be happier with the results and have no hesitation in recommending the team at K1
01:24 23 Dec 20
Went for a quick repair to the front underbody of my Nissan. The mechanic was friendly and efficient. The reception area has seating if you want to wait there. They even offered me complementary soft drinks. They also do servicing and are a Vicroads licensed roadworthiness certificate issuer and also carry out servicing with extremely competitive rates. They use Aussie Penrite oils for the vehicles.
04:02 16 Dec 20
Went and saw Alan at K1 motors and he installed rear sensors which have been working perfectly and replaced my mirror and side guard which were damaged. Quality of the work was 10/10, price was very reasonable and it only took him half a day! Can’t recommend Alan and K1 motors enough, he was even so kind as to drop me off at the station to help me get home without a car! Thank you Alan and the team I’ll be using you again in the future I’m sure
02:27 02 Dec 20
Car reversing sensors. Fast, friendly, professional. Highly recommended and friendly people. Thank you Alan and the team. Also have a very nice waiting room and offer a free can of soft drinks.It was worth the 1hr drive.
02:21 17 Nov 20
I did my car RWC with K1 motors. I didn't mention that the car has done major service with the dealership. To make it short, Allan the mechanic did it in an hour. Said everything was fine and issue the RWC. Very friendly, on time and reliable. Yes I would recommend anyone.
09:55 28 Oct 20
Alan was great to work with, my bonnet was redone and back in perfect condition in a couple of days. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to get work done 👌
01:44 18 Sep 20
Alan a great guy who did the job very perfectly. He did painting and fitting for the rear bumper of my Mercedes. The quality of the paint is beautiful. All the work was done in 1 day. The price of the labour and paint was very reasonable that I could not get similar price anywhere else. I personally refer this guy to anybody who wants his car stuff to be done in a professional way. Thanks Alan.
07:01 30 Jul 20
Recently had my car in at K1 for service and bonnet respray, very happy with the end result. Alan was helpful and professional, with very competitive pricing. Would not hesitate bringing car back for future services.
09:22 09 Jul 20
I was very satisfied with the work that was done by K1 Motors last week on my Honda. The car needed to have the rear parking sensors replaced and K1 did the job on time for a very reasonable price and the overall experience was first class. I decided to wait the 90 minutes for the job to be done and the waiting room was comfortable and even offered free soft drinks. This is a business that is really making an effort to provide a good service and I would thoroughly recommend them.

They did a great respray on my hsv manta. Great price and a very professional job. Will be recommending this place to all my friends and on the hsv sight..
02:42 27 May 20
I had my reverse camera installed by someone else and it cost money when I thought it included the sensor parking when it did not happen. A bit of a rip off for me. Contacted every place to get a reasonable price for parking sensors. They came across a reasonable price & therefore booked in and explained my situation as a hearing impaired person. I was then explained how it would work. Once it done being installed I was then shown how it works, I see the light and hear the beeping sound. I am forever grateful for their amazing work and their support in showing me before hand. Now driving away with a fantastic parking sensors.On the negative note: when i had the reverse camera installed, the reverse camera wasn't making any movement when reversing out. Now having the parking sensors installed, although when reversing out my reverse camera did not make any movements, I am not sure whether it because my camera wasn't installed correctly by someone. When I put the gear into R the screen will pop up and the word says "Danger! Please check surroundings for safety" it a bit annoying as I didn't want the word pop up and staying there as I am continuing reversing. How do I solve the problem?
06:29 22 May 20
Brang my Porsche Boxster into k1 for a respray and Allan and the team went above and beyond quality and workmanship unquestionable very easy to deal with and will be reccomending to all friends and family. A plus 👍👍
10:32 18 May 20
Bring my car to respray the bonnet. Really happy with the result. Give thumb up 👍
05:23 22 Apr 20
Alan was very patient and explained clearly what parts needed replacing when i brought my car in for a service. he is very knowledgeable and willing to work with you when it comes to maintaining your car properly. he offered a loan car for the afternoon when the servicing on mine took longer than advertised (90 minutes on the website). highly recommended for the clayton area
09:53 09 Apr 20
Alan repaired both our cars and did a great job at a reasonable price. He explained the required repairs very clearly and had the cars repaired much earlier than expected. Highly recommend
03:36 24 Mar 20
Though I live in Malvern but this is the 2nd time I have taken services from K1 motors. Distance doesn't matter for such quality and respectful attitude. Alan is a very humble person. I am very noobish regarding car, and Alan is definitely trusted person like us☺️
03:12 18 Mar 20
Alan was incredibly helpful and professional in every interaction with me. He phoned me with updates about my car, and returned it to me 3 days earlier than I expected. My car needed a roof and bonnet respray. The price was competitive and the quality of the workmanship was excellent ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
23:31 19 Feb 20
Alan responded to my questions promptly before I took my car to K1 for a rear bumper replacement. His quote was reasonable enough, the job done well as per scheduled. I wouldn't hesitate going back to Alan for any other car repairs.
11:43 19 Feb 20
An appointment to install the rear parking sensors on my Toyota Aurion was made and the installation was completed punctually. The work was carried out skillfully and with care, for which I was very satisfied. It was fair to say that at least in my case punctuality and professionalism are the two strong attributes of K1 Motors. Besides, the cost of the sensor installation is also reasonable. Hopefully the installed sensor unit will perform well beyond the warranty period and that expectation awaits to be proven in due course.
11:25 17 Feb 20
$199 Rear parking sensors installed and it took 90 minutes on the dot - T'was a smooth, fast and easy process. Definitely recommend!
00:55 12 Dec 19
My little Suzuki Swift has been seeing Alan since I bought it approximately 4 years ago. He is extremely trustworthy and very reasonable with price. In addition to that he is very efficient. For someone who doesn’t have much car smarts he makes sure I’m safe on the roads.I would recommend you to see him in a heartbeat.
07:08 11 Dec 19
Exceptionally good service. Reasonably priced, trustworthy and honest service.
09:10 06 Dec 19
I have taken 2 of my cars to this workshop and both times were absolutely satisfied. My car was hit by someone and needed to replace the whole front door. It was estimated to be done in at least 2 weeks. However, Alan and his team have finished all in only 5 days (including a weekend). That was amazing!Highly recommend for anyone who looking for an auto workshop due to its efficiency and dedication!
00:10 05 Dec 19
Amazing!!! The price was as quoted online, the service was super quick (only a couple of days) and the repair was perfect! Highly, highly recommended!
04:21 04 Dec 19
Alan is one of the most authentic and honest mechanic in the south eastern side. The prices he states are always reasonable and work is top quality as well.
02:42 30 Sep 19
Highly recommend this place. I had my car service done here. Alan is very efficient and professional. He checked my car thoroughly and explained everything patiently. Great service. Price is reasonable as well. Would definitely come back again👍
12:18 26 Sep 19
Alan was a very straight forward and nice gentleman who was very willing to help me out with my painting needs. Highly recommended the quick and professional work that himself and his team was able to provide to me at a affordable price. Couldn't recommend these guys anymore.
10:15 02 Sep 19
I had reversing sensors fitted in my sons car. Very friendly staff, efficient installation and clear communications when we asked any questions. Sensors and monitor look great. Thanks Alan for your help.

Excellent personalised service and very affordable. Very competent and he showed me what the Jeep authorised dealers were not doing all the whole. Good job Alan and all the very best. I would recommend your services to anyone.
04:22 07 Aug 19
Alan did a great job on our VW Caddy, We had a break down along the side of the road last week and he had someone come out, pick up our van, get it fixed back at the workshop in Clayton and had me going in 24hr. Excellent service, Fantastic Staff & very competitive on price.Thanks Alan.
09:31 03 Jul 19
Alan repaired and painted the rear bumper of my BMW. Great professional work for very affordable cost. Friendly ***** customer service. Recommendable place to get the car repaired!
08:06 20 May 19
Alan did a great job fixing the bumper on my car. A different panel beater I spoke to told me they'd have to replace the bumper, but Alan managed to fix it without replacing it for significantly less cost! It looks good as new and you'd never know it was ever damaged, I'm very happy with the result.
04:20 08 May 19
I recently had a set of rear parking sensors installed on my Jeep by Alan and his team. Very efficient, friendly and a competitive price. I am happy with the service received and the sensors.
03:41 08 Apr 19
Alan and his team did a great job on my Alfa. Alan's passion for cars really came through. The service provided was excellent, just what I wanted. Costs were reasonable and the car was ready when promised. Overall I am very pleased and would go to K1 Motors again.

I serviced my car there recently and got a very fast and comprehensive service while I waited in the nice waiting room.Prices were reasonable too.
23:50 11 Mar 19
