We are very proud to be a Certified VACC A Grade Automotive Service Centre. The A Grade network is an exclusive membership of automotive businesses throughout Victoria who are committed to being the best. Meaning, we have to abide by a strict set of quality guidelines relating to all aspects of vehicle maintenance and repairs with annual audits by the VACC.



From its humble beginnings in 1968, Graham Ratcliff  embarked on his journey of building his business to what it has become today. Graham’s purchase and subsequent love affair with Jaguars in the mid ’70’s led to a change in the business and gradual shift into specialising in Jaguar service and repairs. His commitment to quality workmanship and good old fashioned service saw the business grow and establish itself as a Jaguar specialist, attracting customers from Greater Melbourne, regional Victoria and interstate.

In 2002 Graham Ratcliff retired his legacy over to Herb Schobben (one of the founders of Jag Prestige Spares), whilst retaining fantastic existing master technicians and expanding the team with young, innovative technicians with diesel and cutting-edge diagnostic qualifications. In the last decade, the workshop has expanded into other British marques and significant investment in business presentation, staff training, tools and equipment, diagnostic and information technologies and best practices.

We take the time to listen to your needs

We’ll accurately diagnose problems and provide the quickest, best and most cost effective solution for your situation.

Test Drive

It’s often beneficial to test drive your vehicle with our technician to point out the noise, vibration or feeling that might be bothering you. In any case we still test drive the vehicle to confirm the condition you’ve described.

Vehicle Inspections

We feel it’s important to understand the complete picture before we give you our expert opinion. That’s why we inspect your vehicle every time it comes in for service. This allows us to catch small problems before they become big expensive repairs.

Roadworthy testing

In Victoria a certificate of roadworthiness is required when a vehicle is sold. The owner of the vehicle must provide a current roadworthy certificate to the buyer. Roadworthy inspections check the vehicle to ensure the key components aren’t worn or deteriorated and that the vehicle is safe to use.

We don’t do repairs without your approval

We want to make sure you thoroughly understand what is being repaired, how much it will cost and the time it will take. We want you to be comfortable with what we’re going to do. Once we get your approval we’ll start work on the repairs.

Repair estimates

Where necessary we provide estimates that are organised and priced in order of priority. • The problem you wanted diagnosed • Safety or systems integrity issues • Recommended preventative maintenance services

Double checking our work

When the repairs or maintenance is completed the work is rechecked and the vehicle taken for another test drive to ensure everything is running smoothly.

Extended warranty

We back up our work with our Extended Warranty program. See our warranty page for more information.

Courtesy call

We’ll often call you a couple of days after repairs have been completed to ensure everything is going smoothly. We want to make sure you are completely satisfied with our customer service and vehicle repairs.
