Trucks keep Australia running – it’s that simple. They’re the lifeblood of this country, ensuring that goods, materials and machinery are delivered on time in all four corners of this vast country.

Some of the services we provide for trucks and truck repairs:
This is one of the first and most important steps when dealing with electrical faults in trucks. This service involves the testing of the operation of electrical components to determine the safety and functioning of electrical equipment. In doing so, our auto electricians are able to make an electrical diagnosis and determine the root of the electrical fault of your truck and from then, take further steps to repair the issue.
Preventative maintenance such as scheduled and routine maintenance is vital in ensuring the prevention of truck breakdowns. However, even the most carefully and regularly maintained trucks can experience faults and breakdowns. Some of the most common causes of truck breakdowns include poor maintenance, old tyres, faulty brakes, issues in fuel systems and cooling systems and electrical issues.
Issues with the electrical system are the most common causes of a truck’s breakdown. The system is made up of the starter motor, alternator and battery – 3 predominant components essential in helping the truck to operate. These 3 components are reliant on each other’s functions therefore when one of the components fails, so too does the system.
Also, regular issues that can occur with a truck’s electrical system include dead batteries, odd smells and suspicious noises coming from the engine. Having one of our mobile auto electricians assess the situation and diagnose the problem is important to help determine the exact cause of the breakdown as well as prevent any further or future damage from occurring. By providing either battery replacements, alternator repairs and replacements or starter motors, we can ensure your truck is ready to get back on the road with no delay.
Air conditioning repairs
The air conditioning system in any vehicle is an important component helping to regulate and provide a comfortable temperature. However, it is definitely one of the most common components in a vehicle prone to experiencing some sort of issue as a result of either frequent use or being too old. Various signs can indicate the need for observation, maintenance or repair of your truck’s air conditioning system.
Some of the most obvious signs that your truck’s A/C needs repair include:
this can indicate a problem with air reaching your air vents and can often be caused by a build-up of mould or mildew in the evaporator core or also because of a loose blower hose.
Unpleasant smell coming from the air conditioning
This unpleasant smell can indicate that your air conditioner’s cabin is either dirty or worn out. The system will need to be cleaned or in some cases, replaced. Also, the bad smell could be caused by mouldy air vents which need to be regularly cleaned to help prevent long-term damage to the system.
If rattling noises can be heard when the truck’s air conditioner is turned on, it could be a sign of a broken fan belt or condenser. These noises should be addressed and tended to immediately in order to prevent further serious problems.
If the truck’s air conditioning is unable to provide a cool temperature, it could indicate a leaking refrigerant caused by a loss of elasticity in the rubber hoses which enables the refrigerant to get out. This requires instant observation to prevent further damage to other parts of the air conditioner.
Our mobile auto electricians are able to assist in air conditioning repairs for trucks no matter the make or model.
