Genuine truck and trailer parts … in double-quick time
Limerick Truck & Trailer is one of Ireland’s leading commercial vehicle parts suppliers. We dropped into their new premises on Ballysimon Road in Limerick city and caught up with Henry Roe to find out more about their exceptional range of products and services.
Between DAF and TRP (the all-makes parts supplier), Limerick Truck & Trailer provide an extensive range of competitively priced parts for all makes of trucks and trailers. They are staffed by a dedicated and highly experienced team, who possess an impressive depth of technical expertise and product knowledge.
Limerick Truck & Trailer’s new TRP shop is conveniently located on the Ballysimon Road, just minutes off the M7 motorway. They also offer a free delivery service through a sales rep who covers the surrounding counties.
As part of the DAF Distributors Ireland Ltd. network, Limerick Truck & Trailer has access to over 20,000 parts lines. They use the latest technology to provide a fast and efficient parts selection, driven by the vehicle’s chassis number. Downtime costs money, which is why, when it comes to parts, rapid availability is everything.
DAF genuine parts offer maximum lifespan and performance, reliability, a full DAF warranty and minimum operational costs. DAF owners will have noticed that the engine in a DAF bears the name PACCAR; Limerick Truck & Trailer stocks a complete range of engine-related parts dedicated to PACCAR engines. These parts are designed to meet the highest standards that a PACCAR engine has to offer. They can supply all engine parts, differential parts and exchange gearbox and for all makes of vehicle. They also stock a large range of genuine ZF gearbox parts along with Bosch starters and alternator for popular makes
When it comes to sourcing and distributing truck and trailer parts, who should know better than a market leading truck manufacturer? Developed and distributed by DAF Trucks, the TRP Trailer and All Makes Parts and Workshop Consumables range offers the widest choice of parts. Each part featured in the TRP range is carefully selected from quality manufacturers with world-beating reputations, so DAF can confidently offer warranty on all parts, knowing that operators can expect the reliability and efficiency they need.
Reflecting on the genesis and history of Limerick Truck & Trailer Parts, Henry Roe, who has been a key member of the team since 2014, reveals: “The business is part of the OHM / DAF Group in Dublin. We were trading as DAF Sales Limerick on the Ennis Road for ten years from 2005 onwards and then moved to these new premises on the Ballysimon Road, where we have a staff of four. As I live in Laois and Keith lives in Offaly, we can offer a free evening daily delivery service anywhere in between.”
Due to the high quality of the products and service provided, they benefit from a large volume of repeat custom: “We initially had reps out on the road building up our customer base and we now receive a lot of repeat orders from existing customers, whilst also actively adding on new customers all the time,” Henry confirms.
“We can guarantee a 24-hour turnaround on any part that’s not is stock and a same-day delivery service across the midlands. This is a customer-focused sector and we place a huge emphasis on customer service, with unrivalled parts back-up and technical service.
“Both Michael and Adam have years of experience with Keith coming from a mechanical background working with a fleet of Scania trucks and trailers, while I’m an automotive engineer with experience as a mechanic working on Daf trucks. With this resource we can provide customers with advice on which parts they need and any relevant information needed to complete the repair.
“Our winning formula is that we know the product and can help diagnose the problem. We can identify the right part, source and supply it, and then follow up with assistance in fitting if required. We have access to all the relevant data need and are ready and willing to help out in any way possible.
“We work with people because at the end of the day if they are making money we are making money, too. We offer genuine parts with full DAF and TRP back-up and also a rapid turnaround as we can have parts here from Holland or the UK within a maximum of 24 hours.
“New products are added to the line every week and the full catalogue can be viewed through our website at www.limericktruckandtrailer.ie where you can also request a hard copy if preferred.
