Bright New Future

A lot has been happening here in our family business over the past few months and since Christmas we have had some major improvements and technology upgrades.

At KCR we are continuously striving to build our technical capability, our service standards and our repair capacity. Repairing vehicles to the highest standards has been our goal for more than 50 years, that’s why we are proud to announce our latest achievements:

World Class chassis straightening machine:

At Kilburn Crash Repairs we believe that safety and quality should come first. That’s why we have invested in the very best chassis alignment machines. Our new Globaljig Evolution chassis machine is built to achieve precision and perfection. With world class equipment, we can provide you with a world class repair.

Cutting-edge diagnostic computer:

Modern motor vehicles are all fitted with a range of on-board computer systems. After a collision, minor repairs or vehicle maintenance, it is crucial that these computers are checked to ensure they are functioning correctly. Our state-of-the-art diagnostic computer allows us to check and ensure crucial safety systems and vehicle control systems are operating correctly.

Vehicle manufacturer approved repairs:

As vehicles become more sophisticated and technologically advanced, repairing them becomes more of a science. Vehicle manufacturers are using more advanced materials and constructions techniques to make their vehicles lighter, safer and more fuel efficient. Repairing them correctly is vital to maintaining the manufacturers’ safety and performance capabilities. At Kilburn Crash, we use vehicle manufacturer approved methods to repair your vehicles to pre-accident condition.

Non-Destructive Testing (NDT)

At Kilburn Crash Repairs we believe in safety and quality. This is why we strive for perfection in everything we do. As a part of our inspection, diagnostic and repair procedures we have now implemented a Non-Destructive Testing process. Our in-house processes allow us to test and certify vehicle components and weld integrity.

Christmas road safety



Johnny and the team at Kilburn Crash Repairs would like to wish you the warmest wishes for the 2013 Christmas Season.


We would like to thank you for your support during this past year and hope you all have a safe and prosperous new year. Driving during peak holiday seasons can be challenging, so we have prepared some tips to help you stay safe on the roads in this Festive season.

Kilburn Crash Repairs will close down for a short period so our staff can rest and recharge after a busy year. We will close on Friday 20th of December and re-open for trading on Monday 13th January.

Keeping safe on the roads this Christmas


  • If you are planning a long distance trip, plan ahead: check your vehicles fluids and coolant and check your spare tyre PRIOR to departure.
  • Plan your road trip and work out how long you will be on the road, plan for a rest break every couple of hours.
  • Don't worry about the time, REST IF TIRED. It is better to arrive late than not arrive at all!
  • Leave early for appointments or parties, assume the roads will be busy and avoid having to rush around.
  • Plan how you will get home. Don't get caught having had one too many drinks, plan how long you will stay and keep a track of your alcohol consumption.
  • While you may be a great driver, the same can't be said for everyone else on the road. Stay alert and be aware of your surroundings when driving during peak times.


Industry leading practices

With 50 Years of trading under our belt, Johnny and the team at Kilburn Crash Repairs are making a solid commitment to environmentally sustainable motor vehicle repairs for the next 50 years.

This year, Kilburn Crash Repairs was the very first Australian collision repairer to implement the world class water based Sikkens Eco-Logical automotive paint system. Not to mention also achieving the highest level of compliance for the Green Stamp Plus environmental management system.

Part of the transition to Sikkens Eco-Logical included adopting Sikkens’ Autocryl Plus LV, the brand’s high-performance single-stage topcoat system. Sikkens Autocryl Plus LV is available in a range of 20 mixing colours and delivers highly impressive off-the-gun gloss and colour accuracy. Kilburn Crash Repairs is the first bodyshop in Australia to use the high-tech, low-VOC topcoat system.

"We are working together with our suppliers, vehicle insurers and our clients in order to minimise the environmental impacts of their vehicle repairs".
