What Our Clients Say


“Great job on the tipping body fitted to the Colorado. The customised features I requested are designed and engineered perfectly. Attention to detail, overall finish and paint quality are excellent – I have no doubts it will take all the punishment that I will dish out to it in all the years to come. More than happy to give Shakanda the highest recommendation for top quality and exemplary service.”

“Shakanda built my fifth wheeler trailer. I am very happy with the final product. The quality is excellent. The trailer has been very handy and versatile. I have used it for things from carting steel to moving furniture.”

James Darwin
Leongatha, Vic


“Edney’s Leongatha has been using Shakanda Engineering for our Nissan Navara & Patrol vehicle range for over 10 years. We have always found Roger and the team helpful with all our customers tray requirements especially with the custom build. The quality of workmanship has been a selling point for us and it’s like the old saying “you get what you pay for”. We are happy to recommend Shakanda Engineering for our customers and to support a quality local business.”
