Cape York Spares and Repairs
The Local Cape York Mechanics in Bamaga
Cape York Spares and Repairs is a local towing and mechanical repairs services business in the community of Bamaga, at the tip of Cape York.
It is the RACQ approved operator in the Northern Peninsula Area, and it does RACQ roadside assistance
in the NPA, on the Old Telegraph Track, on the Bypass Roads, and all the rest of the places north of Bramwell (south of which Weipa RACQ takes over).
If they can, they will try and fix your vehicle at the spot, but if they cannot and it needs recovery, they will tow it back to their workshop in Bamaga.
The vehicle recovery
is generally done on a tilt tray tow truck.
But if you need taken from the Old Telegraph Track or any other smaller tracks in northern Cape York, smaller vehicles are used to tow you to the truck first.
Back at the Bamaga workshop your vehicle will be fixed as soon as possible. This generally takes a couple of days, as there are usually a couple of jobs going.Spare parts
that they might not have in and might need ordering, are not as big a problem as you might think, as they can be flown in from Cairns as quick as within one working day.
With the cost, it always helps to arrange the breakdown coverage
before your trip.
If you are an RACQ member
you should ring 13 11 11 and see if they cover your accommodation and a rental car while your vehicle is getting done, it depends on the level of your membership (insurance
on the other hand usually pays for the job).
Alternatively you can ring straight to their workshop on (07) 4069 3803.UPDATE this business is no longer with RACQ
