It’s a common thought: how hard is it to fit my own accessories? Google it and you’ll find loads of videos and articles for DIY light fitting, radio fitting, and more. But auto electrics is a specialised field - and what you don’t know could injure, or even worse, cause death to you, and those you love.
The dangers of DIY fitting include risk of failure, and possible short circuit which could cause fire.
Don’t risk it. Leave it to a qualified auto electrician who will guarantee you a job that’s neat and safe. A few accessories we fit include:

- Hands free phones
- UHF radios
- Dual battery systems

Caravan & trailer
Trailers of 750kgs GTM or more must be fitted with independent brakes. Electric brakes are most common. When the brake pedal is pressed, an electrical signal is sent to the towed trailer or caravan which activates a magnet to apply the brakes.
Lowes can install and maintain your trailers electric braking system.
Make sure your caravan or trailer is safe and roadworthy according to Vic Roads.
We can help you with trailer wiring design and installation, lighting installation and repair, and trailer and caravan wiring and repair.
We’ll help you meet all your legal requirements for braking, electrical wiring, and lighting for your caravan and trailer.
