CoolDrive Auto Parts says it stocks everything workshops need when it comes to general service requirements and repair of passenger vehicles

From filters to lubricants, brakes, and batteries, to general consumables, replacement parts, workshop tools and equipment, CoolDrive says it truly is a mechanic’s one-stop automotive parts shop.
The Australian family-owned and operated company’s branch network numbers 38 locations across Australia and New Zealand, supported by high-tech ordering systems, available online 24/7 on CoolDrive’s iShop platform or via the phone.
“CoolDrive is incredibly proud to have been supplying automotive parts to local mechanics for over 45 years,” CoolDrive Auto Parts Chief Executive Officer, John Blanchard, said.
“Starting from our family garage in 1977 selling passenger car air-conditioning parts, we have expanded and established ourselves into a number of other automotive-related categories including service and repair, auto electrical and engine management, to make CoolDrive today, one of Australasia’s preferred automotive parts distributors.
“Our comprehensive branch network has a presence in every Australian state and territory, as well as New Zealand, with each location priding themselves on high-quality customer service, technical expertise, and advice, and of course expansive and quality product offerings.
“Customers are always at the front of our mind, and we are committed to growing our branch network, product and service offerings.
“This will ensure our customers will always have access to a wide range of automotive parts and accessories with a high availability of stock, resulting in a convenient and reliable purchasing experience.”

CoolDrive says it has any filtration need covered, supplying more than one million filters to workshops every year, with air, oil, fuel, and cabin filters available from market-leading brands such as Sakura and MANN-FILTER.
Sakura Filters Australia has been in the automotive industry for more than 30 years, with more than 7,000-part numbers covering automotive, commercial, heavy equipment, marine, and industrial sectors for American, European, and Asian applications.
Sakura’s products have been developed throughout the years with an emphasis on the Australian market, which in turn ensures that its extensive range covers most of the local market’s needs.
All Sakura products are tested to the highest quality standards and laboratory-accredited to ensure reliability and performance.
Complementing Sakura is MANN-FILTER which provides premium filters that protect, prolong, and perform in any operating conditions, due in part to the company’s 70 years of engineering experience.
Designed to meet strict quality standards, and with 97 percent of Europe’s vehicles relying on MANN-FILTER’s OE quality, CoolDrive says their dependability and innovation cannot be matched.
