LABOR CLEARS THE ROAD FOR MECHANICS IN BRISBANE
Labor is driving a better deal for car owners and independent mechanics with a plan to make timely access to technical information a reality.
Whether you own a Toyota Corolla or a Ford Ranger, everyone should be able to choose where they get their car serviced. But independent repairers are struggling to get fair access to the standard service information they need.
Under Labor, car manufacturers will have to share the same technical information with independent mechanics that they currently provide to authorised dealers.
This will not only deliver savings to drivers - who will have better choice and easier access to repairs - but also create a level playing field for independent mechanics who will be able to stay in business as a result.
Labor called for this change more than a year ago, but the Liberals and Nationals have been asleep at the wheel while independent mechanics have been fighting for a fair go.
Unlike Labor, Mr Morrison and his divided team won’t back independent mechanics in Brisbane over large foreign multinationals.
Labor understands it’s your car and it should be your choice where it gets repaired. Now it’s time the Coalition stopped fighting with each other and start fighting for small businesses in Brisbane.
