Galway Truck & Van Centre celebrate 40 years in business



After reaching the milestone of four decades in business, all those involved in Galway Truck & Van Centre are confident they can continue to build on their well-deserved reputation as a leading commercial garage in Connacht.

Established in 1979, Galway Truck & Van Centre have a comprehensive knowledge of commercial vehicle operations and the needs of owners and transport managers.

For them selling a vehicle is only the beginning of their relationship with their valued and loyal customers. They will do their utmost to ensure the vehicle fulfils the expectations of the customer.

“We always aim to advise the customer what best suits their needs,” Sales Manager David Rodgers pointed out. “We pride ourselves on our service and back-up. For example, we’re on call 24/7 and there is always someone available on the end of the phone. We also specialise in servicing and stock a huge range of spare parts.

“If a customer encounters a problem we’ll get them a replacement vehicle ASAP and keep the wheels turning for them. We’d never see one of our customers stuck because we realise that their van is essentially their office.”

Mutually beneficial partnerships with DAF, Mitsubishi Fuso, Iveco and Fiat Professional are key ingredients in Galway Truck & Van Centre’s winning formula.

The new Euro 6 DAF product range encompass completely new designs for maximum efficiency, reliability and the highest driver comfort as well as new state-of-the-art PACCAR engines, smart chassis layouts and attractive cabs that set the standard in the industry.

Fiat Professional offer a full range of commercial vehicles to fit your business needs, starting with the Fiorino and Doblo vans, up to the more spacious Fiat Talento and Ducato Vans.

The transport solution you choose needs to be flexible, reliable and above all else, cost effective. The new Mitsubishi Fuso Canter is packed full of innovation such as the DUONIC dual-clutch transmission (a world first), the automatic start/stop function (ISS).and independent front suspension for all 3.5-ton models.

And these are just a few examples. The result? Greater efficiency. Greater comfort and convenience for your daily transportation needs. And greater economy for your business!
