First established in 2006 as Nova Autoglass and Tinting, a few years on we created the sister business Pitstop Windscreen Replacement, the two businesses later merged to become Nova Pitstop. At one point we employed 7 staff and 2 contractors in a business model that favoured work derived from the insurance sector. In 2015 we broke all ties with all insurance companies so we could focus on a more ‘local’ approach. We now have a great mix of retail and trade work.
Our Trade base includes almost all of the new and used car dealerships in the Newcastle area plus some of the larger companies and fleets including local council, taxi and hire cars, mechanical workshops, plus mining and industrial fleets in the lower Hunter Valley.
Our retail base has been built on a solid foundation of high level customer service, the most skilled and highly trained windscreen fitters and window tinters in the industry. We find that ‘word of mouth’ is still our main source of new customers and believe that speaks for itself.
Being a local Newcastle family owned business means that we are able to build professional friendships with our customers and provide the best services and products at a highly competitive price.
We are Trade Qualified, Fully Licenced and Fully Insured. Our vehicles are Registered Mobile Workshops plus we are members of the Industry regulating body the Auto Glass Association (AGA). Our credentials can be found easily by searching the Fair Trading or Service NSW website
