Dave started the CoolCar Air-Conditioning Centre, located at 99 Wairau Road, in 1996 and has grown it into a reputable and reliable business.

Dave got his start in the automotive trade while working as a mechanic in the New Zealand Army during the 1960s.

He started specialising in air-conditioning in Australia in the 1970s and hasn’t looked back since.

Dave says he enjoys the challenge of the industry and providing customers with expert advice that they wouldn’t get at a typical automotive workshop.

He says the benefits of choosing a company like the North Shore CoolCar Air-Conditioning Centre were “expertise and equipment”.

“We have got the right equipment to do the job,” Dave says.

“We've got the latest leak detection methods, we've got the latest scan tools for getting into the electronics, and we can do everything here.”

His professional tip for people who have air-conditioning issues with their vehicle is: “Re-gassing is not the be all and end all.”

He says the friendly, reliable team at the North Shore CoolCar Air-Conditioning Centre can diagnose the heart of the problem, often saving customers hundreds of dollars.

“We are part of a very highly trained group of workshops and people coming to us will get the necessary skill levels to diagnose and fix the problems properly.”

Dave and his team at CoolCar Air-Conditioning Centre are selected repairers for major warranty companies.

He’s also a member of the MTA executive for the northern region and is often consulted as an advisor for the industry.

Dave was recognised for his talents with an international award for industry excellence from VASA, a network representing the automotive air-conditioning, electrical and cooling technicians of Australasia, in 2015.

Over the years, Dave has worked on a wide range of vehicles but says highlights include a Lamborghini Espada and the occasional V-type Jaguar.

Outside of work, Dave enjoys fishing and spending quality time with his grandchildren.
