About Forbury Service Centre

Forbury Service Centre is locally owned and operated by Andrew and Kim Peet, who bought the business in 2005.

Prior to them taking over, Forbury Service Centre was successfully run for over 18 years by the previous owners – that is a combined business life of over 32 years!

Andrew has been a qualified mechanic since 1993 and he learned early on that running a garage was more than just mechanics. Despite being based in Caversham, Forbury Service Centre has repeat customers from as far away as Mosgiel, Outram and North Dunedin. Some customers have been getting their vehicle inspections, servicing and repairs at the Forbury Service for well over twenty years.

One of the major reasons people keep coming back to Forbury Service Centre is the great service they receive. Andrew won't let a vehicle out of the workshop if it hasn't been done right.

It's no wonder the business has continued to grow, year after year.

A year after buying Forbury Service Centre, they bought another workshop and combined them.

Kim runs the business side. She is an accountant who was in public practice for over 15 years and handles all of the administration and accounts. Kim also takes care of the books at the other workshop they own with partners and also at Turboweb.

When Kim's not busy with all of her various working roles, she runs around after their two school-age children. 

As a family, they love the outdoors and enjoy going to the beach, walking, cycling, and swimming. Friends and family are very important to Andrew and Kim, and they enjoy visiting them both here and in Australia.


Dylan Counsell

Dylan is the newest member of the team. He has been a qualified mechanic for over three years. Dylan started at the Forbury Service Centre in 2016. He enjoys working for a good boss and loves the variety his role offers.

Dylan loves having something different to do every day – whether it’s warrant of fitness (WoF) inspections, transmissions, brakes or clutches, or checking your car battery.

In his free time, Dylan likes working on his Nissan Silvia, which is in the process of receiving a new super motor 2JZ.

Zed Robertson

Originally from Southland, Zed has been in Dunedin since 2013 and is doing his apprenticeship at the Forbury Service Centre. Along with studying Automotive Engineering, he also has a Certificate in Business Administration from Otago Polytech. 

Zed says he has gained so much knowledge from Andrew in many different areas – whether it is mechanical repairs, motorcycle WoFs, or vehicle servicing.

He especially likes the diagnostic aspect of his job.

When not at work, Zed likes playing rugby, spending time with his mates, riding motorbikes, and travelling.
