Can you believe it, we have been in business for over 20 years.
We first registered the business back in 1998 when we went from working on our friend’s cars as a hobby and then started doing it full time in our first unit in Crocker Drive Malaga in 2000. In 3 years we out grew that unit and moved into a much larger unit around the corner in Inverness Street. This enabled us to have a showroom and large fabrication workshop. In 2007 we restructured the business because of issues finding reliable staff in the start of Perth’s mining boom. So we consolidated the business back to working in a smaller shed and putting our parts and showroom online.
We relocated to Ballajura in 2008 and continue to serve the Off Road community of Western Australia with a wide variety of parts and accessories to fit your vintage VW, Beach Buggy, Dune Sand Rail, Baja and Off Road Racer. The world has evolved significantly and so has the way our customers shop. In order to serve our community, we closed our walk-in retail shop in 2013 and focus exclusively on our online store sales. In 2017 at the request of some of our former customers, we reopened our workshop to service and race prep their cars on a by appointment basis. We are able to service, build, repair, fabricate and weld anything you need for your off-road vehicle.
We are still Family-owned and operated and take great pride in our customer experience. Looking after our customers, is the reason for our success.
Our website has recently changed to a new provider to enable us to give you the most sophisticated checkout, protecting all of your data while ensuring the most efficient process. Idlewildoffroad.com is updated on a regular basis and we are still loading products. If there is something you require that is not yet loaded or you want to buy items in person, please give us a call and we will be happy to help.
Our aim is to take all your stress in finding time to maintain your vehicles, allowing you to focus on other things. We can supply fabrication items, both new and used parts, tools and electrical components for your Race Car, UTV, 4X4, Beach Buggy or even your tow vehicle. We understand that you drive these vehicles because you appreciate them and you want to get the best out of them while still looking after them. Since we source our inventory from hundreds of the top brands in the Off-Road industry, you never have to worry about not purchasing high quality products.
Reviews from other customers
I've had the pleasure of dealing with Chris and the Team at Idlewild offroad on several occasions.
Living on the East Coast of Australia we don't have too many shops that can offer you a 1 stop shop and that's what I have found I can get at Idlewild Offroad.
From simple advice, to roll cage hoops, wheels, and General parts for my Off road VW buggy The guys here have always been able to help me on every occasion.
If what i wanted wasn't in stock, They would source it for me and get it sent out to me as quickly as they could.
I can't fault their Customer service, or the quality of their custom fabricated parts and I will continue to support their work by purchasing my parts through them.
I wish to express my sincere thanks and appreciation for the service and fabrication work you did on my car.
You provided excellent communications as I was kept updated all the way along and you provided
the information and advice I needed to make a decision considering both price and part options as well as how long
each step might take. Everything was done perfectly and you even arranged the pick up and drop off to suit my busy schedule
I recommend Chris and Idlewild for taking care of you and your car in a friendly, professional and cost effective way.
Customer for life.
Best extended family They will go out of their way to help anyone with off roading. Let's keep family businesses alive
Only place I'd trust to get the Jimco back and do the Dash straight up. (Not this year, Chris didn't do the bits that failed.) But did the year we won.
I got two mirror mounts to add two side mirrors to my beach buggy... they fit well as expected shipping was super fast all in all a great experience. would use again AAA+++
Took to my car to Idlewild recently for general Servicing/ oil pressure fault finding. Found them to be extremely family friendly, very knowledgeable and repair cost was easy on the hip pocket . More than happy to go back and them again .. two thumbs up from me!
