Forbidden to the Rescue
Forbidden Mechanical was founded in 2017 in the Comox valley. Starting with only three mechanics, Forbidden sought to fill a service gap in the local industry. There was a great need for trusted, reliable commercial vehicle repair and the folks at Forbidden Mechanical were determined to meet it.
As the company expanded, it maintained its commitment to providing the best customer service in the entire region. Quickly, its ranks grew to include 16 mechanics and a full team of 30 people! Forbidden also added a full Traction Heavy Duty Parts store, becoming an associate store that carried a full range of product service offerings.
As a commercial vehicle repair shop, Forbidden strongly compliments many of Meraki’s other services. Today, Forbidden operates on the same principles that it was founded upon: a customer focused approach, an unshakeable commitment to quality, and a passion for fixing anything and everything that rolls through the door.
