ABout Our team
Coming from the era of repairing instead of just throwing out, Chris’s Automotive & Marine Electrics brings old-fashioned care and dedication to every job.
Established in 1993 here locally, our family owned company, headed by Chris Dickman and his wife Faye, have proudly developed a reputation for exceptional workmanship, and honest, friendly customer service.
They are supported by Tradesmen Justin and Michael, collectively the business has more than 70 years combined experience in automotive and marine electrics. We pride ourselves on the depth and range of our old-school knowledge. We continue to support and grow our territory, having employed apprentices along the way including having a current apprentice.
Our business handles absolutely all areas of auto electrics. This includes electrical repairs, auto air conditioning repairs, diagnostics, upgrades and installing parts and accessories. These include driving lights, UHF and VHF radios, power inverters, dual battery systems and solar power set ups for those of you who want to go bush.
We pride ourselves on our versatility, being able to service cars, machinery, trucks, boats, trailers, caravans and much more with equal skill and knowledge. New and older models are welcome and all major makes are covered.
Thanks to our fully equipped service vehicles, we can even bring our skilled services to you. All you have to do is call us to discuss your requirements.
Below are some of our most common enquiries compiled over decades of servicing Darwin, Palmerston and the rural area.
If your question hasn’t been answered here, feel free to fill out our enquiry form or speak to our knowledgeable team over the phone.
Yes, we can.
Did you know that air conditioning units are sealed units? So if you are “low on gas”, there is a leak somewhere. We can find that leak, fix it and re-gas your air con system.
The Air Con industry is a licensed industry, topping up an air conditioner, without first repairing the leak is outside our licensing requirements.
We cannot answer this question without checking your system. There are 3 major components of your air con system, all connected by pipes and hoses. Without knowing which area the problem is, we cannot provide pricing. The good news is that we can diagnose it for you and let you know how much it will cost. Just give us a call.
Yes, we do! We have a mobile and remote area service available for all areas of Darwin, Palmerston and surrounding areas. Give our friendly team a call for more details.
