About Us and Our Future
Sunshine Wheel Repairs (SWR) was established on the Sunshine Coast in 2007 to service car dealerships. Owner Scott Edmonds brought a new concept in mobile wheel repair to the area after successfully setting up franchises in New Zealand. This new service allowed alloy rims to be repaired onsite, saving the car dealers time and money.
Over time, as Scott refined and grew the business, he began attending trade shows, both here and overseas, researching new trends in wheel repair. He developed methods to provide a more comprehensive service to his growing number of motor trade and private customers.
In 2010, Scott moved into a new workshop and brought the work to the SWR headquarters. He invested in a rolling machine that enabled flat spots and buckles to be corrected.
After a tyre is removed, and it is found to have holes or wires exposed, it will be deemed unsafe and unable to be refitted. SWR has a wide selection of leading brands to choose from.
With more investment in new specialised equipment, SWR had soon outgrown the workshop. They were now offering new alloy wheels, such as Versus Allied and BMS 4x4, as well as tyres at a competitive price.
With growth in mind, SWR purchased a specialised CNC lathe for wheels, as well as a spray painting area with air-filtration and an extraction system to minimise dust particles settling on the paint or clear coat and they moved into much larger premises.
Scott and his team are now able to achieve a superior standard of finish, without the risk of overspray.
A huge factor in Sunshine's success has been its dedication to customer service. Providing honest, prompt and reliable service and advice, SWR has a strict policy regarding "the price you're quoted is the price you'll pay".
It's this customer-focused service that has seen SWR recommended by tyre resellers, mechanical repair shops, smash repairers, insurance companies and motor dealerships. Scott has hundreds of satisfied private customers and more than 200 motor trade clients in locations from Brisbane to Gladstone.
SWR also offers logbook servicing, raising and lowering of vehicles, balancing and rotating tyres, as well as very competitively priced new tyres and rims by Versus, Koya, Speedy and Performance.
