We Care About Quality

About Us

Our Mission

Belfast Mechanical Services Inc., owned and operated by David Cowan, opened its doors in Trenton, Ont. in April of 2016 as a full-service repair shop for Hastings Quinte Paramedic Services.


A successful first year led David to expand his operations and, in June 2017, Belfast Mechanical opened its doors to additional fleet maintenance and the public.

“Belfast Mechanical provides a really caring atmosphere for our customers,” David said. “We are looking forward to serving vehicle owners in the Quinte area."

These are our promises to you:

• We will never conduct work without your approval;

• We will give you accurate estimates of work to be done;
