The Jim Chaillon's Auto team in the workshop in Townsville
Jim Chaillon's Auto Service was established in 1968 by Jim Chaillon to service the growing Townsville population and surrounding areas. Some five decades on, the business thrives as a result of its commitment to provide quality workmanship and genuine customer service. A locally owned and operated family business, Jim Chaillon's Auto Service operates from 25 Casey Street, Aitkenvale.

Owner/Manager and A-grade mechanic, Glenn (Jim's son), along with office manager Teresa, now operate the business with the same high quality and attention to detail that the business is renowned for. In fact, the business is still on the same site where Jim first opened his workshop doors.

With the long-serving staff, Glenn and his team guarantee the reliable repair and maintenance of vehicles to the highest standard. Senior mechanic Terry Smith has been loyal to the business since 1976. Having served his apprenticeship under Jim, Terry is skilled in carburettor overhauls, repairs and wheel alignments. Terry enjoys working on classic vehicles.
Qualified mechanic Patrick Smith has been with Chaillon's since 2005. Patrick is a skilled tradesman and enjoys the performance aspect of the automotive industry.

Dean Hill, our apprentice has a background in Auto Electrical and is always eager to learn new skills.

Three generations of loyal customers stand testament to the first class workmanship and customer service of Jim Chaillon's Auto Service.

The workshop has maintained ongoing membership of the Motor Trades Association of Queensland (MTAQ), the Institute of Automotive Mechanical Engineers (IAME) and the Victorian Automobile Chamber of Commerce (VACC), which outlines the dedication to the upkeep of the business.

Glenn and the team continue to improve their skills and knowledge by regularly investing in the right training, technical equipment and tools required to maintain customer vehicles.

As a whole, the Jim Chaillon's Auto Service team has a combined continuous trade experience of more than 70 years. With his loyal staff, Glenn looks forward to providing you with the team's renowned technical expertise, experience and dedicated service for many years to come.

At Jim Chaillon's Auto Service we treat our customers as friends and their vehicles as our own.
