Over 280 guests attended the recent opening of Transport Repairs latest facility, located on the outskirts of Christchurch, only minutes away from the transport hubs of Hornby, Islington and Harewood. 

The complex features three full-length pits capable of servicing the longest rigs, a CoF lane, truckwash, engine steam cleaner, dialup oil pumps, an engineering workshop and a huge truck and trailer parking yard. It joins five existing Transport Repairs centres in a network extending from Invercargill to Blenheim.

The opening was also a celebration of the new facility being appointed as a Southpac Trucks servicing agent for Canterbury to complement the existing agency with HDPS. 

Transport Repairs regional manager Mike Webster says the site has been years in the planning: “We have learnt about what the ideal size for lanes should be, how workflows can be best managed and also futureproofed it for IT and laptops, which are now as common as a torque wrench.” 

The event held at the workshop featured some impressive trucks, including the latest from the Southpac range and even a few from the past like the original Peterbilt that Mike Webster serviced when he started out, and the fleet’s original Toyota Hilux ute.
