Safety Service Centre has been servicing customers from all over Sydney and country areas for 54 years. Located in the heart of Warringah Shire at Forrestville it is currently owned and operated by Mark Dilanian who is a passionate classic car enthusiast.
Mark has over twenty years experience in the industry and had worked at Safety Service Centre in the early nineties prior to travelling overseas. After his return he learnt the previous owner was looking to retire and seven years ago purchased the business with the aim of maintaining and building the customer base. As a testament to their longevity and reputation a customer came in recently and produced an invoice that was forty years old!
Safety Service Centre provides a full range of services for classic car owners, newer vehicles and 4 x 4s. The workshop has three hoists and an additional three bays allowing six cars to be serviced by the highly experienced staff of six.
Services provided include;
All mechanical work, including log book servicing and four wheel drives
Brakes - inspection and service
Fuel injection - service, repair and replacement
Modifications - these have included fitting a V8 into a ford Capri
Suspension components and fitment of springs and shock absorbers

The business has been able to prosper due to old fashioned service and a number of basic business principles. Mark talks to all the customers, explains what they will do and goes out of his way to ensure they are happy with the service. He is hands on in the workshop and works closely with the team who have many years of combined experience working on specialist marques such as Austin Healey, Ford Mustangs, Holdens, Mercedes W109, Mini Cooper S, Capri and others. All the staff treat the customers cars as if they were their own.
Safety Service Centre also provides a complete service where they will oversee all aspects of a job that may include some outsourced services that are checked to make sure they are done right and will meet the customer expectations. They also offer a pickup and delivery service for customer cars. Under pinning the reputation they have built is their NRMA Approved Repairer status.
Mark is a member of the Capri Car Club and the RS Owners Club of NSW. He currently owns three Capris and two Ford Anglias and enjoys the odd track day with club members.
