About us

Short Motors was established in 1975 when Eric Short purchased a suspension and wheel alignment shop in Takanini. The business grew over the years, expanding its services provided to include diagnostic tuning, warrant of fitness and general repairs. Later they included LPG installations and dyno tuning to their already extensive range of specialties.

In 1981 Tony Alderton was offered a position in the expanding company, mainly operating a then all new high tech diagnostic tunescope. In 1982 a larger premises was required and the company soon moved in to a much larger workshop which included a service station. By the mid eighties Tony became the workshop manager and continued in this role until 1989 when he took over ownership of the workshop after the service station was sold off, since then the business has grown further to include even more specialised services.
