WELCOME TO Hillman Motors

If you’re looking for expert engine reconditioning, you’ve come to the right place! As a local, family owned business, Hillman Motors is onto its third generation of engine reconditioners, although we are constantly updating our tools and equipment and training our staff in the latest engine reconditioning techniques. Our well-equipped workshop repairs all engines from the classics to the latest and we can obtain parts for even the most obscure engines.

We pride ourselves on our customer-friendly focus. Our goal is for each of our customers to have the best possible experience. For this reason we offer one-to-one service, you’ll deal directly with Jenny Hillman, the owner and granddaughter of the founder of Hillman Motors. We believe the secret to good customer service is honesty and integrity, so we will always explain the work required for your engine and get your approval before we go ahead with the job.

Located conveniently in central Rockhampton, we offer a local pick up and drop off service (by request) in the Rockhampton area.
