About Us


John & Cheryl Whyte started Mitchell Service Centre in 1994 in a small workshop at the rear of a service station. After a number of years it became apparent that they had outgrown the current site & to continue servicing their customers efficiently they would have to expand which saw them relocate to their current site in 2001.

John’s interest in cars started when he was a boy, at 10 years old he was picking apart pushbikes, then moving onto cars at 13 years old when he worked on his first head gasket. Ever since John has been committed to repairing Canberra vehicles for over 30 years and is passionate about his industry, having spent time on the boards of Fair Trading and the ACT Motot Traders Association, as well as spending weekends “Pit Crewing” for local race teams.
