Keep your business moving
Services is in the business of servicing trucks and commercial transport vehicles, and is on State Highway1 at the southern end of Levin.
Ian Buckley and Ken McFadyen purchased the business in January 1986 from Modern Freighters where they both worked keeping the fleet of trucks and trailers on the road. Every year Ken and Ian take on a diesel and heavy engineering apprentice to join their dedicated team of 13 staff.
Ken, who has 46 years experience, and Ian, who has 39 years’ experience, have the perfect background to teach the trade to others. Central Automotive Services celebrated 30 years in business on January 6, 2016.
Even the largest trucks can be accommodated in their modern workshop where they look after trucks from all over the country. They recognise that downtime costs the transport industry money, so getting repairs and maintenance done quickly to get the vehicles back on the road again is much appreciated by operators. It offers a Saturday morning service.
“Our company is always looking forward, keeping up with technology — we own hoists that can lift up to 35,000kg — and changes, which helps streamline the service provided.”
Central Automotive Services also has the ability to come to you and work off site if your vehicle is not roadworthy. It is well recognised as the place to go for expert advice and service in all diesel repairs.
“We cover large or small vehicles, heavy transport engineering, servicing, pre-purchase appraisals, pre-COF and COF checks. We also have a VTNZ brake testing machine to save you time when going for a COF. Whatever the size of your truck, trailer, tractor, 4WD, motor home, etc, see the team at Central Automotive Services.”
