Mad skills like a Ninja, but not scary like a Ninja.
|HB Auto Lock is the brainchild of Hawke's Bay local, owner-operator, Jeremy Phillips.
Jeremy has a particular passion for automotive locksmithing, which has become quite specialised with the introduction of transponder technology into everyday vehicle security systems.
"But Jeremy, why would I choose to use HB Auto Lock?"Good question! The answer is simple. Because we are the BEST!
Cars these days are complicated things, if your car is less than 15 years old, it will contain at least $6000 worth of computers in it. Mistakes caused by people working on your car who are not using the latest equipment or possessing the necessary skills are quick to make and expensive to fix!
Think long and hard about who you trust to work on your vehicle.
"Are you the cheapest in town?"Probably not! We concentrate on being the BEST!
Do you want the cheapest person to work on your car, or do you want the best?
HB Auto Lock makes every effort to ensure that our prices are fair and reasonable, but we make no claim to be the cheapest option. To be cheaper would mean we'd need to sacrifice either the parts we supply or the standard of workmanship we provide - and we are not prepared to do either!
We take our work very seriously and have a high standard of workmanship and thanks to the fact that we are actively involved in training other locksmiths, both in NZ and around the world, we have developed a wide range of resources to help us solve those tricky locksmithing problems.
We are completely mobile and can come to you.
"Can you [ unlock / supply keys for / fix ] my car?"Well, I've never met you and I don't know what kind of car you drive, but... yes.
Yes I can.
"Jeremy, are alternate versions of Pineapple Lumps considered canon?"FINALLY! An important question!
YES. Absolutely. While original Pineapple Lumps are obviously delicious heaven-sent gifts from God - there are many many alternate variations and they all have their place.
Recent additions include Snifter Lumps and Milkshake Lumps. I'll admit that the Milkshake lumps will not be to everyone's taste - although I still like them; but who doesn't like the chocolately-minty taste of a snifter without the crunch that has you wincing to see if this is the final time you get to use your crumbling teeth on delicious candy?
The obvious star of the Pineapple lump lolly spinoffs is the combination with another NZ classic - the Perkynana. I actually enjoy Perkynana lumps even more than Pineapple lumps sometimes. Especially made for people who complain that Pineapple Lumps are not sweet enough and taste too much like actual Pineapple!
The greatest of all Pineapple lumps spinoffs is obviously reserved for the Pineapple Lump ice-cream bar. After years of campaigning for the return of the Jelly Tip bar, I almost crashed when I saw my first advertisment for the limited time Pineapple Lump bar. Even better when they started selling them in bulk in the supermarket. It makes it so much easier to pretend that they're for the whole family.
I would LOVE to discuss this with you further, but you'll need to lose a key first. Then we can debate it while you're paying me!
