5 star review  Let me start by saying that I wish there were more stars for the German Service Shop! Sven - thank you for being a true gentleman and providing customer service above and beyond. I echo all the positive reviews here especially as a female driver who's knowledge on engines is limited. Sven is a man of his word and will not take advantange of a customer! From the the booking right through to the follow-up call - you can expect the utmost professional service from Sven and the team! Thank you so much Sven and for your team of mechanics who made things right again in my world after a poor experience with previous cowboy mechanic. I'll not go or trust anyone else as much I do you and the team.

5 star review  I have been taking my 2003 Volkswagen to The German Service Shop in North Melbourne for about two years now. It has been fantastic taking the car there. I can't rate them highly enough. In all they do they put the CUSTOMER FIRST. If Google had a ten rating I would give them a ten. Brad and his team provide professional and knowledgeable service and advice. Everything about the servicing and repairs for one's car is explained in great detail and provided in writing. And when one collects their car to take it home it has been cleaned inside and out to a standard that is higher than any place I have ever taken my car to before. The German Service Shop provides loan cars to the customers and a pick up drop off service to the city and nearby offices. In the fifteen years I took my car to Dealers I was never able to get a loan car unless you booked your car in at least six weeks or more ahead. On the one occasion when I was able to do this and was told I could have a loan car, when I arrived at the Dealer I was told that I couldn't have the loan car as they didn't have one available. At The German Service Shop I have always been able to have a loan car. On Christmas Eve last year my car broke down and could not be repaired on the side of the road and had to be towed to The German Service Shop. Fortunately they were open on Christmas Eve. Brad looked after me so well and provided a loan car for me free of charge for the entire three weeks that the business was going to be closed over Christmas. I can never thank him enough for this as without this help I would have had to rent a car for three weeks. I now have my car back. The whole premises gives one a good feeling when you arrive with your car. The two repair shops are amongst the cleanest and most organised I have seen before. And the reception area for the customers is clean and inviting with lovely couches to sit on and newspapers, drinks and chocolates provided. I would highly recommend to choose The German Service Shop FIRST.

5 star review  I couldn't be happier with the quality of the work I've experienced from Sven and the team. My 12 year old 135 was limping after a bit of neglect from me. 8 hours later and if I closed my eyes I'd swear it was a much newer car, they really worked their magic on it. Everything people say below about their honesty, professionalism and integrity is 100% true. And at the risk of mansplaining, I've never seen a car company treat female customers better than these guys. They're 2 mins walk from North Melbourne station, so really easy to get to and from. Their charges are very reasonable...I really can't imagine there's a service centre anywhere in Melbourne that is better.

“Brad, The car was terrific to drive this morning! Many thanks for the home delivery and the champagne for Helen. Looking forward to many more days of fine driving. A very rewarding service experience!”


“Friendly and professional service by guys who really know what they are talking about. They really do a great job, are well priced and I was surprised how fast they got the job done. Been there for servicing and repairs and I don’t think I’d take my Beamer anywhere else now.”
