Logbook Servicing

Your vehicle is the lifeblood of your business; when it’s off the road, your business grinds to a halt. When buying a new vehicle, a warranty is an important safeguard against unforeseeable problems with your new investment.

To maintain your new vehicle’s warranty, it’s required to have your vehicle undergo regular logbook services. While many think these logbook services must be done by the manufacturer’s service department, a reputable workshop like KADS Truck ‘N’ Diesel can perform logbook services and save yourself the trip back to the dealership.

We can conduct logbook services on a wide range of vehicles, including heavy trucks and trailers, light commercial vehicles and passenger cars. Contact us today to make a booking for your vehicle.

Diagnostics & Auto Electrical

A dashboard’s array of warning lights can indicate developing problems in critical areas of your vehicle. Unfortunately, these aren’t always clear when it comes to pinpointing exactly what problems they’re indicating; a warning light may be lit because of an actual vehicle fault, or simply because of an issue with a gauge or wiring.

We’re equipped with the latest in diagnostic tools and are able to isolate and repair faults in your vehicle’s auto-electrical system, or perform follow-up work on problem areas in your vehicle. We can also provide replacement batteries and other auto-electrical parts, as well as install new lighting solutions and other accessories.

Driving without working air conditioning is uncomfortable for a regular driver – for a truck driver, it’s unliveable.

Here at KADS we can fully repair your air conditioning, starting by replacing faulty compressors, condensers, and cracked tubing and seals, and finally recharging your system with refrigerant gas once we’re certain it’s airtight.
