Today, as a modern repair facility I see us not just as panel beaters and spray painters doing our own in-house work but our office staff is among the best Project Managers around. I say this because repairing a modern vehicle is complicated, needing specialist trades and people and a project manager who has to know the Who, How and When to get all the little jobs done to get the big job finished. Our sales not only include our labour.

We sell paints, welding materials, body materials, parts, tyres, vehicle service, wheel alignments, batteries, paint-less dent repair, in fact, anything and everything to do with a motor vehicle BUT our biggest sale is EXPERTISE.


We know that a collision can be very stressful and inconvenient. We’re here to help you get back with your car and back to your life as quickly as possible.

We’ll handle everything for you:

  • Vehicle recovery from the scene of the accident.
  • The complete claim process.
  • Damage assessment and professional repair.


  • Private work
  • Towing
  • Hire Vehicles
  • Pick-Up & Delivery


  • Customer Lounge
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Onsite Parking

L & M Smash was the first company in Australia to import Autorobot after Garry Maher at the age of 23 was invited to attend a European Study Tour. The first bench was imported from Finland arrived a few months after and was a great asset to the business for many years. On a trip to the United States, Bill Maher was invited to attend a day at Chief Automotive on his return home.It sent Garry to do a week’s course at one of their facilities in California. Garry was that impressed not just with the machinery but with the training, a new bench was ordered and commissioned. It did not take long and next thing we were training other repairers and assessors how to repair chassis frames and badly damaged mono frames. Today, L & M SMASH is recognized as a 4wd and Chassis Frame Specialist and use laser computer technology.
