We are the only independent truck workshop in the Nelson/Tasman area.
For the team at Nelson Truck Repairs & Spares, getting their clients back on the road as quick as possible is what the job’s all about. Gavin and Kay Bradley bought the business back in 2012 and haven’t looked back.
Gavin has always been in the trucking industry and had previously worked at Nelson Truck Spares for 11 years, so when the former owners made the decision to retire, it seemed like “good sense” to take the business on themselves.
When we bought the business, the main focus was on truck spares, but after analysing the company and with the help from a business mentor, we decided to change the name to Nelson Truck Repairs & Spares Ltd – many people didn’t realise we offered workshop services. This change had a really positive outcome.
Nelson Truck Repairs & Spares specialise in looking after small to medium sized trucks and commercial vehicles. We work with a number of large companies to maintain and service their fleet to a high standard. We are a small business too, so we understand that cost and time is everything, we know what trucks are coming in from one month to the next so we can get them in and out as quickly as possible and we notify the owners when their vehicle is due for its next COF or service.
Helping maintain clients’ Operator Rating System (ORS) score is also an important part of the job. The ORS is a system that aims to improve the safety of heavy vehicles on roads, making journeys safe for all.
With fully qualified heavy automotive technicians in the workshop, Gavin with is vast knowledge of parts at the front counter, Kay in the office and the leggy redhead – Molly the dog ready to meet and greet customers – what more could you want?!
