Our Team

The team

Our team of qualified diesel and petrol mechanics has the expertise required to keep your vehicle running smoothly. We pride ourselves on friendly service, high quality workmanship, and a willingness to tackle the harder jobs as well as those that are more routine.

Owners Chris and Kate Wimsett live locally on a small rural property on the outskirts of Katikati. Chris has nearly two decades of experience in the heavy vehicle and automotive industry in both New Zealand and Australia, and he’s the one managing the workshop day to day. Kate looks after our human resources processes and works tirelessly behind the scenes to keep things running like a well-oiled machine.

In the past two weeks I have had to have work done on three vehicles. I was recommended to Chris and the guys and they did not disappoint. Chris’ communications skill are great for his business, he contacted me throughout the work being done giving me options and estimates. keeping me up with what was happening, and i was very impressed with the quality of work completed. I can now say i have a new mechanic. I would highly recommend Northern Automotive Truck and Tractor to anyone looking for a great job done.
