LABOR TAKES THE WHEEL FOR MECHANICS IN PERTH

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. Unlike Labor, Scott Morrison and his divided team won’t back independent mechanics in Western Australia over large foreign multinationals.
 
Labor understands it’s your car and it should be your choice where it gets repaired.
Now it’s time for the chaotic Coalition and big business first, and start fighting for small businesses in Western Australia.
