Keep your busi­ness mov­ing

Horowhenua Chronicle - - GARDENING -

Cen­tral Au­to­mo­tive

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.”
