Midas Darra Opens in Brisbane’s West

Brand new Midas workshop brings a new level of automotive service expertise to Brisbane’s western suburbs
Midas Darra Franchisee Luke Hawkins brings a lifetime of automotive customer service experience to the newly established Midas Car Service Centre in the western Brisbane suburb of Darra.
Ever since he was a little boy, Luke Hawkins’ life has revolved around cars. The automotive family business that his father established in the 1970’s specialising in sales and service grew to cover a number of highly successful locations over the next four decades, with Luke being at the forefront of ensuring customer satisfaction across both the sales and vehicle servicing operations of this family business. One of these locations is an impressive 7,200 square metre high profile site at 259 Monier Road in Darra, which served as the company’s dealership based automotive repair workshop in past years.
Luke believed that this workshop could be so much better utilised as a dedicated general automotive service and repair centre, providing the motorists of the Centenary Estates, 17 Mile Rocks and Brisbane’s Western Corridor with the highest quality and value priced vehicle servicing and repair services. Bringing this state of the art workshop into the Midas family was his first choice and this quality workshop was further improved and transformed into one of Australia’s largest Midas Car Care Service centres in early 2020.
Midas Darra has the special advantage of providing factory trained technicians with outstanding prior automotive dealer based service experience across a wide range of local, Asian and European makes and models. Equipped with no less than 17 hoists, two wheel alignment machines and a vast stock holding of service parts, Midas Darra ensures that your vehicle service and repairs will be completed on time – or if your car is needed for a longer period of time, customers can avail themselves of one of the store’s fleet of 12 loan cars at no extra cost.
As if all this wasn’t enough, an Opposite Lock 4WD store is also located at the same site, so Midas Darra is also best equipped for 4WD vehicle servicing, repairs and accessory fitments.
Midas Darra customers can expect a comfortable waiting area equipped with coffee, soft drinks and water which has been extended to the outside to meet current social distancing requirements. It is also located close to the Mt Ommaney Shopping Centre and can be easily reached from the Logan Motorway and Ipswich Road, or via the Sumner exit on the Western Freeway.
“I’m very excited to bring our large and modern workshop to the Midas family. This ensures that all western Brisbane based car owners can take advantage of the same level of vehicle service professionalism and expertise as any of the major car dealers, at far better value pricing and with the efficiencies that go with this large and highly productive workshop,” Luke said.
