About Us

Our History

Autotest Servicing is a specialist automotive test equipment company directed by brothers Ben and Sam Kearns since 2016. Prior to taking-over the company, father and now Consultant Service Engineer, Vince Kearns, established the company some 34 years ago. Vince applied traditional family values as an integral part of the company’s work and ensured that those values were always part of the company’s business ethos. Strong work ethic, core values and support from his family, Vince built the company’s reputation as a premier service provider for the automotive industry to maintain, repair and calibrate garage equipment. Fast-forward to 2016, Vince asked the sons to take over the company and together the brothers have led the company from strength-to-strength growing the company’s size and reputation across New Zealand as a specialist automotive equipment servicing company.

The brothers continue to use Vince’s business ethos today, which is just one of the many reasons why our customers choose us for their all their servicing needs.
