Sandgate Auto Electrics and Automotive Services

This is a little insight into how this company has become a leader in its field in the northern suburbs of Brisbane, South East Queensland. Sandgate Auto Electrics & Automotive Services is a family-owned and run company established by Allan and Susan McArthur in 1973. Being local residents in the area, they built a loyal clientele almost instantly and the doors were open.

The growth of the company has exceeded expectations and has now brought the premises to 101 Connaught St Sandgate 4017. The knowledge and research of Allan McArthur have been handed down over a number of years to his son Todd McArthur who now is the proprietor of the company.

The Auto Electrics Company located in Brisbane started as a small operation with extremely limited resources and now has become one of the most well-known companies throughout SE QLD for its professionalism and willingness to keep up with the fast-developing future of the new age vehicles and accessories.

This ranges from motorbikes to marine to RV’s to the most technical of diagnostics. The team at Sandgate Auto Electrics & Automotive Services has the technicians to solve any problem small or large. The vast years of having a Brisbane-based local business have brought the opportunity to coincide with many of the automotive associations throughout Australia and Brisbane and have the success of a very loyal and pleasurable clientele from all over Brisbane and Queensland.

The development of sophisticated vehicles and electronics of this day and age has been a very big part in the growth of this very company. Our quality facilities, tools and staff have the most modern training, outlook and presentation of a modern company. At any time our team is willing and able to assist you in the most professional manner to repair, service or just simply give advice on any problem as small as a light globe or as big as scan tool diagnoses on the most modern vehicle.

We run our company by our very simple slogan, “Moving with the Times”.

This reflects not just our work ethic but our whole operation from our equipment to staff training, office and waiting room facilities, and the corporate image that we offer. We keep our facilities, equipment and staff up to the highest standard which our clients have come to expect over the years.

Sandgate Auto Electrics recently celebrated our 50th Anniversary with a gala charity event that raised over $40,000 for the Royal Flying Doctors Service Queensland Section. Read more about the event here.
