My name is Nigel Apps, the founder of Classic Car Security and an avid car enthusiast. I’ve spent my life around vehicles of all types, including my own classic car restorations.

Classic Car Security is an independant company that was born out of the love and passion I have for helping fellow car enthusiasts – sports car, muscle car, vintage car – I can help you improve the security of your vehicle no matter what marque, model or year model.

Car alarm installer of choice for leading brands.

An unrivalled history

"It became apparent that many of our opposition’s installers and the companies themselves, who had entered the car alarm market were trained or had guidance from Nigel. Many of those companies are now out of business due to the motor industry changing and the installers not having the history or experience to deal with whats required nowadays.

Nigel still maintains the edge when it comes to experience and professionalism in our market."

My background

I’ve spent my life in the automotive aftermarket industry and have accumulated over 35 years of experience installing or repairing cruise control systems and car security set ups of all types for major brands using factory or aftermarket products. 

One of my former roles included working for Zemco Australia as Sales and Marketing Manager and also handling most of the technical enquiries and mobile repairs for Zemco Cruise Controls in NSW. 

Incorporated in 1993

I founded the business as a Sole Trader in April 1993 under the name ‘The Cruise Control & Alarm Specialist’, then incorporated into a company on July 1st 1993 as Cruise Control Specialists Pty Ltd.

The first expansion program took place in August 1994, with the appointment of our first full-time technician, making it two mobile service vehicles available. It wasn’t long before more staff were hired and trained, making it four mobile installation units in Sydney. 

Early 2000’s

I changed the company name to CCS Technology Pty Ltd in early 2000, to accommodate the growing array of products that we installed into vehicles. 

One of the biggest motivators for creating this new business was simply out of frustration. I was seeing so many rough and dangerous cruise control installations being completed that were not up to standard. Many of these were from automotive industry service providers who, to be frank, should have known better. 

So, providing repairs and corrections to existing installations became an ongoing element of the business. Although, thankfully, this slowly reduced and today around 30% of our work comes from sub-contracting to other firms who seek a specialist installer.

Graham Bach (former Director of the Command Auto Group, the sole importer of market-leading Cruise Control in Australia) is a keen supporter due to my professionalism, work ethic and the high-quality workmanship I have delivered over the years.

2020 to today

The whole world has gone through a history-defining change. So I made the decision to do the same with my mobile installer business. With the evolution of self-driving cars, inner-city living and modern vehicles including cruise control as standard, I decided to re-focus my efforts solely on helping classic car owners.

It won’t be long now before most of us are driving electric cars, so I want to help all the passionate car lover in Queensland that have an old sports car, restored classic, vintage car or even a rare muscle car to keep it safe from theft. 

I can install the latest car alarms, vehicle trackers or immobiliser products into cars of practically any age or type. I grew up working on Holdens, I have a soft spot for old Fords but have many years of experience working on American, British or even Japanese cars. My mobile installation services I can come to your house, storage facility or secret warehouse where your car is located to set up the right alarm for your needs.

A passion for anything with wheels

Trust your vehicle with someone who loves classic cars

Apart from helping other vehicle owners, I have also worked on my own cars. Here are some photos of my pride and joy which you might spot at places like Cooly Rocks or a local cars and coffee gathering.

I get great pleasure seeing car collections and vehicles being restored when I visit a client. I also make sure to cover any number plates if I take any photos and keep any location confidential.
