Forbury Service Centre


Forbury Service Centre offer an honest and reliable car check. They do WOFs, mechanical repairs and service, tyres, batteries, engine reconditioning, brakes and clutches and auto transmissions. Andrew and Kim purchased the business in 2005, and with great customer service have seen the business continue to expand.


Andrew and Kim wanted a traditional website that showcased the honesty and reliability of their business. A photoshoot of mechanics at work helps tell the story of Forbury Service Centre. WOFs and other services needed to have a lot of information in a succinct way.


The homepage for Forbury Service Centre has a banner showing the website ‘bread and butter’; WOFs, with an easy book now button and a more info button – making it super easy for visitors to their website to book in a WOF. The main services are then showcased below that banner with staff in situ. The photos of staff in situ really help to tell the story of Forbury Service Centre as a top quality, working business. When it comes to the services pages, rather than get visitors bogged down in tedious content, bullet point lists were used, this helps potential customers to easily see what is on offer.


We had a website before that was very impersonal and was just there so we had one. As a mechanical workshop, we didn’t realise the importance of having a website until we didn’t have one for a short period of time and lots of people commented that they couldn’t find us online.
We thought that sorting another website would just take up too much time.


We went to Turboweb as they were a local company, had seen their great work and that fact that we could always talk to a real person and we were never made to feel like just a number.

The process was very simple; we were guided along that way and it really was just a matter of having a chat to them and telling them all about our business, having a photo shoot which made for great entertainment especially amongst the boys at morning tea.

We love our new website, we tell our friends and customers to check it out. It’s all about us with real people doing what we do.
