Hello. If any, I am looking for some recommendations for a mechanic closer North/West (Tullamarine) for servicing.
I was using MMF in Spotswood because they not only did a good job but offered free transport. Unfortunately, they are now charging $100 for the transport service due to diesel prices. While I'm happy to pay a transport surcharge, that seems rather steep.
Due to the amount hospital appointments I have now, as hospitals are coming back online, I decided to pay the $100 transport fee only to be told their truck now is currently out of service. Further, they are heard getting a hold of as they don't have their direct service number connected anymore and don't seem to return calls. I have a feeling they don't want to be doing transport anymore or they are super busy these days.
Before MMF, I went to PS's service centre in Kensington, but they appear to be closed down now. I see Melbourne Scooters is now a club sponsor, but not sure about a pickup/ delivery service.
So yeah, trying to find the closest recommended place for servicing. My health permitting, I'll start doing my own essential services (oil, filters, etc.), but the bike is due for the major 10k, plus I want to get the drive belt done simultaneously.
On a side note: I just noticed while doing some Googling around this morning that Suzuki Raceway Motorcycles in Niddrie is now Essendon Motorcycles & Mowers. I used them back in the day for my Bandit 1200 servicing at Raceway; besides being pricey, they always did an ok job, and it's closer to me. Has anyway heard or had experience with these guys now it's Essendon Motorcycles & Mowers?
Also, Melbourne Scooter Mechanic in Brunswick came up in my google search; if anyone has used them before? They are close enough for me to Uber home and back while the bike is in for service.
