Robo's Motorworks is the best mechanical business in region

Tuesday 8.15am: ROBO'S Motorworks won last week's best business online poll on The Bulletin.

The business accumulated 23% of the 297 votes cast in the poll in one week.

10.45am: Peter Robinson Snr started the business over 20 years ago and now his son Peter is in charge.

Sister, Maree Robinson was yesterday surprised and very pleased to hear they polled so well after we received 141 responses to our post. She put it down to consistent staff training and a pick-up and drop home service.

Maree said her father was a dedicated sponsor of local sports and fundraising events, especially the McGrath Foundation.

"Raising money for cancer research is very close to our hearts," she said.

There were 226 votes submitted by 10.40am, with Robo's still leading the way with 22% of the votes.

7.10AM: ROBO'S Motorworks is leading the way in the Best Mechanical Business online poll.

Robo's has gained 21% of the 207 votes lodged so far, followed closely by The 4WD Repair Shop on 19%.

CQ Mechanical Solutions is not too far behind with 14% of the votes.

The poll closes Noon, Monday, April 13.

TUESDAY: IT'S not easy to find a mechanic you trust to take care of your pride and joy.

There were 141 comments, most nominating a business, submitted via a post on The Bulletin's Facebook page late last week.
