Our Story

Ted Cahill Motors was founded in 1983 by Ted Cahill himself.

In 1990 Ted sold the business to his son Alan, and his wife Lois Cahill, who then took the reins for the next 13 years. By 2003, Alan & Lois felt it was time to move on, & sold the business to Scott & Julie Campbell. After 10 years in business Scott & Julie felt it was time to pass on the baton to their long time, dedicated workshop foreman, Heath Maxted. Heath took over Ted Cahill Motors on July 1st 2013.

Scott & Julie’s words, in June 2013…

“We have been fortunate enough to find the ideal purchaser for our business in Heath Maxted. Heath has had a long history with the business, beginning his apprenticeship in 1994, and over the years moving to workshop foreman. Heath has now seen 3 different owners come and go, and after nearly 20 years of service, Heath feels it is the perfect time to take on an ownership role of a job that he enjoys and knows so well.”

our values

Although the business has changed hands in that time, there have been several factors that have remained constant:

Trustworthy – we understand that the mechanic industry has somewhat of a reputation for ‘shady’ practices, and take absolutely no part in it. We only suggest fixes that are absolutely necessary, and have ensured that we remain a 100% honourable servicing and auto repairs establishment.

Dedication to the craft – Possessing a legitimate passion for the auto industry is a must for all dedicated mechanics. You can bet that every one of the staff members working under the Ted Cahill roof is incredibly passionate about cars and the auto industry as a whole. We work exceptionally hard to ensure your car is running like new again.

A friendly approach – Since 1983, each of the business owners of Ted Cahill has gone above and beyond to make sure that our customers have the very best experience when approaching us to service or repair their car. We believe that not only exceptional work, but also quality customer care is the key to running this business.

"After having air con issues i took my car to the local dealership who quoted $5k to fix. I took my car to Heath for a service and asked him to have a look and to give me a price. He fixed the problem for just over $600 what a difference. Will never go through the dealership again. Have used Heath on a few occasions and always great service."
