The top choice for diesel service on Vancouver Island

We work hard to keep your fleet of diesel trucks and equipment running smoothly and safely. Our certified heavy duty mechanics have over 30 years of experience and take great pride in the quality of their work.

Now, with Traction Courtenay operating at the same location, Forbidden Mechanical is now your local traction heavy duty parts store.

How can we help you?

We firmly believe in the motto "under-promise and over-deliver" – we are ready to exceed your expectations with exceptional service that’s as responsive as it is reliable.

Where can we help you?

Our heavy duty mechanical shop in Courtenay is the base of our operations. It’s where we offer routine service and scheduled repairs, and where we conduct certified commercial vehicle inspections.

But that doesn’t help you if you have a diesel engine that’s stuck in the woods near Port Alberni. That’s why we provide 24/7 mobile heavy equipment and truck repairs across Vancouver Island. That’s right: 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, anywhere on Vancouver Island.

What can we help you with?

Anything. Seriously, if you can break it, we can fix it. We specialize in the service and repair of diesel engines, transmissions and hydraulics . Makes and models include, but aren’t necessarily limited to: Peterbuilt, Freightliner, Westernstar, Hino, Kenworth, John Deere, Bobcat, Mack, GMC, Ford, and Komatsu.

Why are we the ones to help you?

Because we know how important it is to keep your fleet up and running. Downtime is lost time, and lost time is lost money. That’s why our highly experienced, highly skilled team of heavy duty technicians will do everything they can to get you back up and running as quickly as possible, without compromising the quality of our service.

Trusted Leaders

Honest and passionate leadership: that’s the Forbidden Mechanical way. Our leaders define who we are, and their upfront and ambitious approach is the foundation upon which we work.
