4WD Club Web Pages
This could probably have been posted in general discussion, but hey, this is my very own apparently, so why not here.
It may be worth considering checking out any 4WD Club web sites in the area you're in if you need mechanical assistance, as example.
During my recent trip to the Kimberley I experienced some fuel problems and needed the help of a machanic. I checked the Kununurra 4WD website, with a view to contacting them to see if they could suggest a mechanic, but on their home page is a link to sponsors, which listed a few mechanics.
A couple of phone calls later and I had agreement from a couple of the listed mechanics to have a look at the problem when I arrived in town.
The benefits were that they new I was coming, they were expecting me, and had some idea of what to look for. A big benefit for me was not having to do web searches looking for someone.
I figured if they were listed on a 4WD web site, then they must be reasonable 4WD mechanics. They were/are.
