Heavy Vehicle Servicing
Here at Bendigo Truck Centre, we know how important it is to keep your vehicle operating with minimal downtime. We know that when your truck is out of commission, it hits your wallet twice, once for the cost of repairs, and again with the cost of the lost business while your truck is stuck in the shop.
That’s why our expert team of technicians are standing by to work with you to create a care plan tailored to your vehicle- using the latest diagnostic tools, we can identify any potential issues, and perform preventative maintenance to ensure your vehicle spends the minimum time in the shop for repairs, and the maximum time out on the road.

Air Conditioning Repairs
Your truck’s cabin is your primary workplace, second apartment, and home office. You spend so much time in there that any issues with your cabin’s climate control are escalated from a nuisance to legitimate drop in quality of life.

Roadworthy Certificates & Other Inspections
Whenever you’re planning to sell, buy, gift, or otherwise transfer ownership of a vehicle, before it can be registered in the new owners name, it must obtain a roadworthy certificate. This certificate, is issued by a licensed tester, after a thorough inspection that ensures your vehicle meets the safety standards to be legally driven on Victorian roads.
A Roadworthy check does not inspect for the general health of the vehicle, just ensuring it is not an immediate danger to drive. For this reason, if you’re thinking of buying a secondhand vehicle, we would recommend bringing it in for a pre-purchase inspection, so you can know exactly what you’re buying.
Before a long road trip, we would urge you to bring your vehicle in for a pre-trip inspection – this way any issues with your vehicle are discovered in a workshop, rather than out in the middle of nowhere.
Bendigo Truck Centre is a licensed testing station, and can help you with:
- Roadworthy Certificates
- Pre-purchase Inspections
