The workshop at Dion's Mechanical Services.

By Matthew Pearce

The place to go for everything mechanical and off-grid, Dion’s Mechanical Services and TCT Solutions have come a long way since starting as a small one-man operation more than six years ago.

Situated at 45 Derby St, Rockhampton, Dion’s Mechanical Services offers a range of automotive service and repair tasks for all brands, makes and models of vehicles, covering everything from logbook and general servicing to air-conditioning service and repairs, brake and clutch service and repairs, suspension upgrades, caravans and trailers and EFI.

Dion’s Mechanical originated as a mobile business in December 2015, before moving to the current site in Derby St about four years ago. There are now five employees between the two businesses.

Business owner Dion Cain said staff “lived and breathed“ everything mechanical and outdoors and their hard work had been rewarded by a dedicated customer base.

“We are booked out about three weeks ahead, but our customers are willing to wait that long because they believe in the quality of our work,“ he said.

“We strive to do the job right the first time, giving you peace of mind that your vehicle is safe and reliable when you really need it to be.

“Our modern workshop and highly experienced team gives us the capability to bring our standards of service to customers to the next level.“

As a Repco Authorised Service centre, Dion’s Mechanical Services Services has a commitment to high quality workmanship, ensuring the very best in automotive care.

Dion’s Mechanical also employs a fully qualified auto electrician.

A second business operating at the same site, TCT Solutions (which stands for Touring, Camping, Trade) was launched at the Big Boys Toys Expo last year, specialising in custom built, high quality canopies for cars and trailers, as well as the installation of battery systems, inverters, solar kits and accessories.

“TCT Solutions was built on a passion for making camping and outdoor adventures easier and more convenient,“ Dion said.

“The dream was to feel comfortable at home wherever you go. Whether it be for touring, camping or trade, we can help you achieve a practical canopy fit out, customised to your specific needs.

“We take pride in every job that we do, with all products fitted to the highest quality of workmanship.“

TCT’s brands include Enerdrive, Camp King Canopies, Redarc, Narva, Morningstar, Simarine, Blue Sea Systems, Hulk 4X4 and more.

Dion’s Mechanical Services and TCT Solutions are open from 7am to 5pm Monday to Friday.
