TRU Auto: your Auto-electrical Specialists in Christchurch


TRU Auto opened-for-business as a tight knit team in 1996.

These days the TRU Auto expert team of auto-electricians and automotive-mechanics run highly refined systems to efficiently repair all facets of the motor vehicle from light to heavy transport. Indeed, we pride ourselves on going above and beyond. Our planning expertise means clients can progress their projects with the minimum of fuss and stress.

Our work is about preparing for a wide range of contingencies – then being able to react correctly if things change. Here, experience is crucial.

Despite the standards and regulations there is a distinct difference in what you may receive in terms of service and outcome in our industry. With the challenging conditions of the work we come up against, a strong focus on the ever-evolving automotive environment is required.

At the heart of our work is a focus on the before, during and after of each project. Before: we ascertain and diagnose. During: we deliver promptly, while maintaining constant professionalism. After: we strive for clear communication and exemplary after-sales service.

With this mind-set in place our clients appreciate the lengths we go to to ensure all jobs are done with these standards of proficiency and professionalism.

We look forward to assisting you soon. For advice or a quote give us a call today.
