Alpheys Garage is a family business and the personal touch is important to us. The Alphey name has been known in the Devon Meadows and Cranbourne areas for 100 years so our business is built on a solid reputation. William Alphey built one of the first homes in Devon Meadows back in the 1920’s. Roly Alphey had a truck and bobcat business for over 30 years. Now Ian has created Alpheys Garage – your one stop auto shop in Cranbourne. Ian is a well-known and trusted mechanic in the Cranbourne area. He undertook his apprenticeship with Cranbourne Carburettor & Tuning Services in Arundel Street, right next door to where he now has his own business.

We aren’t like big businesses who can’t afford the time to chat with you. We think it’s important to chat. Everyone has different needs from their cars. We treat them differently; we drive them differently and we maintain them differently. By chatting you can tell us exactly what your car means to you and what it needs. We will take care of you and your car. Alpheys Garage offers tailored car servicing and repairs, working within your budget and when it suits you.

WARNING DO NOT GO HERE! Fitted a bump stop for my 4x4 backwards. Completely neglected to fit the upper control arms I had paid for and I had to bring this to their attention myself. I had to contact the supplier for a full refund.Tried to charge me extra for a wheel alignment that was included as part of the package I purchased through the company they install for. Now looking possibly having to have a shock rebuilt due to their incompetency with damage caused by the installation. Made contact with the supplier directly to have these issues rectified at one of their competent fitters. ABSOLUTE ROGUE!

Have taken a couple of cars here. Ian and his team offer old school service, honest and at a fair price. Once I had my Hyundai in for a service and it developed a noise afterwards. Ian booked it in rightaway and fixed it, didn't ask for a cent (cause it was just serviced). That's what I mean with old school service. Also had them service and change the timing belt on my classic BMW. Recommended!

last year I have had my centre bearing and drive shaft replaced and balanced plus a major service on my ML triton and so far I’m super happy with how my vehicle was treated and the customer service, mainly I dealt with Michael. Would definitely recommend Alphys Garage.

I had my brake calipers rebuilt at Alfie’s when no one else would. They did an excellent job at a decent price. The guys where extremely friendly and will return for more work. If you are in the area and need a decent mechanic I’d give these guys a go.

- Michael helped on the day. Professional and gave great technical advice about my car going forward. Did not try to upsell me like all the others. - upgraded spec parts and well suited parts installed on the car. I was just expecting cheap rubber bushes but durable poly bushing installed. - I would described going to the shop like going to the mechanic with your dad back in the day. You know you working with mechanics that know cars and know what’s best. Not like a CertIII IT specialist desk warrior tell you what’s wrong with your car when they saving up for their first.

I had a pre-purchase inspection done here and was impressed at the thorough and honest take that was relayed to me afterwards. I had gone in thinking it was a pretty good car, but the issues exposed made me think twice. I dealt with Ian, and he was able to articulate each thing clearly and help me understand the nature of the issues and what they might cost me in the future. I think I dodged a bullet by engaging his services.

Ian and the team down here, won't disappoint. I had been screwed around by 3 different mechanic and when the team at Alpheys got a hold of my cx9, they did it very quickly and at a fair price and kept communication up with me the whole time. I will happily bring my cx9 back here aswell as my other cars :)

After another mechanic cost me thousands, I asked but 1 question to which they spent the time to find out the correct answer before conveying it back to me saving me hundreds of dollars more. Also a stickers for Fulcrum. Very professional and will endeavour to deal with again unlike the competition

Hopeless! They are ok to change your oil and slap a service sticker on but if you expect them to do anything more advanced than that they crawl up into a foetal position and rock in the corner while giving you absolute lies as a excuse. Take your car to the local hairdresser as they will have more knowledge about vehicles than these guys

My Caprice is my baby and after Ace mechanic completely ruined my Caprice and Cx9, I was a mess. Then I stumbled along these guys and I tell you what, I'll never go anywhere else again. Ian, Mike, Caitlin well the whole team, are so professional and have such a wide range of knowledge that if I could give more stars, I would. They got both my car's back to A1 and were so fair prices and the work, I cannot fault. The customer service is amazing and I would highly recommend these guys to anyone. Need anything down to your car? Call these guys. I promise you, you won't regret it. Thanks again guys! And thanks for returning my phone! Though I'd lost it for good! Will see you guys again soon with my Caprice. ?

Stay away from this place. After getting a quote and a bad feeling from this place I took my car to another mechanic for a second opinion. Thank god I did ‼️ Got my car fixed for less than half the price Alpheys garage quoted me. Edit for the owners reply: Car was not booked under this name. But rest assure that your service is still that of a con man

I had my Toyota 4wd serviced here for the first time today and will definitely be back. They did a logbook service for a really reasonable price, did not try to upsell, explained everything in language I could understand, got my car back to me sooner than expected, the workshop is organised and they’re bloody decent guys to go with it all. Highly recommended!

They do great honest work here. Many residents of the Cranbourne area have great things to report for Alpheys! Often slightly more competitive on price than their rivals too

Amazing service - the boss Ian himself helped to picked up my car and drop it off when I was a bit under the weather. Michael (panel beater - the best and nicest, humble guy ever) and Michael (branch manager - patient AF) their service was impeccable - couldn't fault a single thing. Super dooper grateful these guys looked after my little car, and they're going to be my one and only mechanic going forwards.

Went there for transmission issues with my alfa romeo, the guy didnt even bother to check the transmission fluid or whatever. He tried changing the alternator instead. I thought maybe it was the issue. But later reffered me to the alfa dealership. Charged me $240 for just reffering me to the dealership. If you didnt know how to work on an alfa then you should have reffered me already when i called you guys. Scammed me of $240. Didnt even fix anything. Didnt even give me a diagnosis of the problem. $240 for what? I feel humiliated and scammed.

I took my Navara to Alpheys Garage to replace a door handle after some thieves had broken into it. The service I received from Alpheys was amazing. The communication was excellent. I was missing some parts for the internal mechanisms of the door and they were able to provide a temporary fix replacing the internals at no extra charge when I brought it in again. I would highly recommend their services.

Excellent service and great turn around time especially considering the amount of cars these guys go through. They may not be the cheapest but they're the people you can trust. 10/10 will recommend to others looking for quality.

Dropped in on a Saturday morning with a burst front brake line on the Monaro, Ian, the Owner made a new brake line and fitted it in an hour. Great Friendly Service

The Team at Alpheys has been outstanding. I had my tuned Fiesta ST there several times to fix a few things. Some related to self inflicted boot-on hardware issues, others general maintenance/repair work. They looked after the car very well and were very accommodating regarding drop-off and pickup times. Were honest and upfront about costs, lead times and issues. If it wasn't for us moving to the other side of the city, they would have continued to be my go to service/repair mechanic.

Truly incompetent shop. They mistimed the timing belt on my car and refused to take accountability for the job they did. Not only did they have the car with them for months, but I wasn’t able to even drive it away once they were done with it! I towed the vehicle to another shop who confirmed that the belt was indeed 1 tooth off. I ended up having to fork out another $15,000 for another engine on top of the thousands of dollars I had already spent with this shop. On top of all that, they still charged me for the faulty job that they carried out on my vehicle and refused to release the car to the tow truck until it was paid! Horrible experience and would not recommend. I feel like I have been ripped off with no leg to stand on because of all the mechanic jargons they use to defend themselves. According to them, it is MY fault that THEY carried out a dodgy repair on my vehicle! The person at the front is very good at passing on the blame instead of owning up to what has occured. Save yourself the money and find yourself a reputable shop as these guys won’t even take accountability for anything they do, especially when a mistake has been made.
