Fleurieu Crash Repairs are celebrating their 32nd year in business and employ 13 locals. The business has a proud family tradition with Ben Abbott, the third generation panel beater in Victor Harbor, joining father Brenton and grandfather Gordon Abbott.

Fleurieu Crash Repairs took the opportunity to present to Business Victor Harbor members, who attended the meeting, the core strengths of its business. 

Ben showed the Car-O-Liner Chassis Straightening equipment with electronic measuring and explained that they have the only one in the region.

Brenton showed that a small dent on a front bumper bar can have nasty surprises behind it, including both damage which is structural and to the radiator, which could easily be ignored by the driver, but can be detrimental to the car.

Brenton talked to the 40 guests about the Assisted Driver Alert Systems (ADAS) and the critical need for the cars to be recalibrated before they are given back to the client. Guests also heard about, Self Driving Cars, Computers and Electronics, the hire car fleet and lifetime warrantee.

Business Victor Harbor meet on a regular basis and take the opportunity to meet at other business premises. Business Victor Harbor inquiries can be directed to Graeme Jameson on 0429 817 524 or admin@businessvictorharbor.com.au
