  • February 2019 Updates

    Where is this January gone hey? We had a busy month at Balcatta Panel and Paint. We were fully booked for most weeks and our staff on the workshop were doing some fantastic jobs on all of Perth's Hyundais, Mazdas and Toyotas. (and many other brands) 
    Looked like a lot of you have insurance with RAC nowadays and we did a lot of work through them through the past month. Good think they are offering a choice of repairer and a lot of potential customers chose us. So thanks for that!
