Since 1981, our mission has been to stay passionate about providing our customers with the best automotive services possible, including the best customer service and the most professional care for your vehicle, which means you can have peace of mind that your family is travelling safely all year round.

We are a group of Automotive Specialists that started out in 1981 as a parts remanufacturing business in Fitzroy. Even in our humble beginnings, our commitment to quality shone through in everything we did, and by 1984 we grew to the point to which our operations, systems and the ABS brand had bloomed into an impressive franchise.

In 1990, we opened our first interstate store in Tasmania, which was quickly followed by new stores popping up in Perth in 1994, and Adelaide in 1996. Today, we are proud to say that our business has grown to a total of 46 stores, operating in every state and territory across Australia.

We have also expanded and developed our services to enable us to be a one-stop shop for all our customers’ vehicle servicing needs, and we are able to provide a world-class service for:
Minor and major services
Logbook services
Brake and clutch maintenance and repair
Cooling Systems maintenance and repair
Suspension and steering
Any other mechanical repairs that you may need for your car

With years of experience and that personal touch, we make sure you and your car always have a second home with us. Our mission has stayed strong every step we have taken as a business, and will continue as such in our ongoing growth.

We take our customers feedback seriously.

ABS Auto are committed to providing the highest level of servicing and we measure this by using our specifically designed SMS feedback program. This SMS customer feedback program is tailored to deliver a method to ensure your suggestions of how the store can improve their service, and or an acknowledgement that you have received the highest level of service.

Reviews of ‘ABS Auto South Melbourne’

Have dealt with Arel on a number of occasions and his customer service is always outstanding. He is also very fair and reasonable when it comes to service and road worthy costs. He is someone in the mechanical game that I can completely trust when he works on our cars. Will not go to anyone else. Always appreciate his time and in explaining what he’s done and any issues etc. Highly recommended !

I can see why these guys have a lot of repeat business. Professional, knowledgeable, great service, good value. Nice people to have a chat to. They listened to how I described the issue and with some targeted questions, we had a service plan in action. They quickly and accurately fixed the issue and I couldn't be happier. I think I'm now a repeat customer!

After having been quoted a couple of grand for a brske job I took my car to ABS. Arel accessed the condition of my brakes and saved me close to 2/3's of the original quote.

Arel is a credit to his business. The most amazing and contention person. He is very fair and explains everything he has done to your vehicle and won't do unnecessary things to make extra money. I highly recommend ABS South Melbourne

Bit late on the review bandwagon but got a RWC done here a while back and staff were super professional and also able to accommodate me last minute with quick turnaround. Would recommend anytime thanks so much.

They hosted the car up (something you can't ever get with mobile mechanics) showed me what's wrong and fixed it.... Basically I had a bad experience from mobile mechanics so I tried these guys I'm glad... I'll be back....

Arel is a very helpful person and always provides good advise in relation to your motor vehicle repairs. He does a thorough job for your vehicles. He was recently of great help to me when I needed a Road Worth Certificate, he squeezed me in on short notice and organised one for me. Appreciate your help Arel!

I tried several mechanics before google led me to ABS in South Melbourne. Every single mechanic I spoke to before coming here told me that I had to leave my car for the whole day or they need to replace several parts to fix the issue. All it required was a new brake pad. Although every busy, Arel took my car in, investigated and advised me that the brake pad needs to be changed. I gave him the go ahead and the car was ready to hit the road within 45 mins of me getting there! No lies - Not over priced and No leave the car for the whole day! I recommend everyone to see Arel Rosenberg for your car mechanical needs/servicing! Great bloke and great service!
