OVER 100 YEARS’ COMBINED EXPERIENCE WITH TRUCKS

TRUCKSMART HISTORY

Trucksmart and its owner, David Body, have been buying and selling Volvo trucks since 1988.

In the early days Trucksmart was buying and selling used Volvo trucks, and in 2000 became the authorised Volvo truck franchise dealer for Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, the Central Coast, the Hunter Valley and the Mid-North Coast of New South Wales.

From 2000 to 2008 Volvo and Trucksmart were the number one brands for all truck sales in the over-15 tonne GVM class but in 2009 Trucksmart sold its Volvo franchise after deciding to follow a different path, becoming a specialist Volvo parts supplier.

In late 2012 Trucksmart started selling Volvo Truck-compatible parts. At the same time, Michael Tonkin returned to take up the position of Parts Manager. We are proud to say there is, in our estimation, no one in the region - or possibly the entire country - with more Volvo parts knowledge than Michael.

In 2013 we opened a substantial on-site workshop at Beresfield, NSW, catering for all truck servicing and repairs. Such was our popularity we soon outgrew that facility and in early 2020 moved into a bigger, brighter, purpose-built facility at 4 Canavan Drive, Beresfield.

Between them, Trucksmart’s ‘brains trust’ boasts more than a century of truck industry experience covering everything from parts to repairs – the sort of knowledge that keeps trucks running reliably all day, every day.  

At Trucksmart we sell parts compatible with Volvo, Mercedes & MAN trucks as well as service and repair Volvo and other truck brands. Most importantly, we not only guarantee our pricing but also give 12 months unlimited warranty on parts and fitting.

 

HIGH QUALITY PARTS

Our parts are sourced from Great Britain, Germany, Turkey, Brazil, Italy, the United States and elsewhere. The majority of our parts suppliers are ISO 9001 compliant and we don't stock parts from China.

Many of our brands, from proven and reliable companies including ZF, SACH, Lemforder, Wabco, and Knorr-Bremse, are OE suppliers. Other global brands we stock include, Trucktec, Sampa, Unitruck and Diesel Technic.

Our buyers regularly travel the globe, constantly searching-out new, high-quality parts so you don’t have to waste valuable time price-shopping parts to keep your truck on the road.
