Buying an OEM truck part from the original manufacturer at a reasonable price can be a very tough task. Aftermarket spares for trucks is an affordable alternative when you need to purchase specific parts that aren’t regularly and freely available from the original manufacturer. It is by no means an inferior product and also comes with the required industry standard warranties and guaranties.

The days of going around from one shop to another and physically having to inquire about the different available products and their prices is thankfully over. Today you can now employ the power of the internet in your search for spares for trucks online. There are many reasons and advantages to do this, some of which will be explained below.

The first reason is perhaps the most obvious. The incredible convenience of being able to sift through the many options at home without having to go from one brick and mortar shop to the next will allow you to quickly find out all you need to know about the availability, price and quality of the spares you are in need of. This can be done without even having to leave your home or your office.

You will also not be constricted to normal shopping hours, as the virtual marketplace is open 24 hours a day. This alone makes buying your spares for trucks online something to consider carefully. One other advantage is that even if you are in a remote area in South Africa, you can still access the widest range of spares for trucks without having to be constricted to your geography. Your parts will be delivered to you and you can get on with your business without worrying about how you will find the spares for your trucks from the limited resources you have close to your company.

It has not become uncommon these days for fleet managers and owners of trucks in need of commercial truck spares and accessories to source and purchase these spares online. In fact, as the internet is becoming more and more pervasive in South Africa, more truck companies are opting for this option.

There are of course many reasons for this, but perhaps one stands out among the rest. Many truck companies aren’t necessarily located close to large metropolitan areas. This makes shopping around from one supplier to the next for the best priced and highest quality commercial truck spares and accessories a bit of a problem for these companies. An answer to this is online resellers of affordable commercial truck spares and accessories. Truck companies and garages can purchase all the spares and accessories they need and have it safely and conveniently delivered straight to their premises without any hassle at all.

This is only one of the many reasons why many fleet owners and truck companies are continually more and more making use of online parts and accessory sellers. It also gives truck owners the opportunity to compare different types of makes and models whereas they would probably have to settle for the limited quantities available from conventional brick and mortar spare shops.

Another reason for its incredible popularity is the affordable and competitively priced commercial truck spares and accessories available online. The reason for this is because there aren’t the same costs involved for online resellers than there is for brick and mortar shops with regards to workshop space and employees. This directly carries the savings over to the customer and this only further fuels online parts and spares shopping.

Truck Parts for Your Transport Vehicles in Africa

africa truck partMany companies in South Africa make use of trucks in order to transport their goods due to the poor state of the national rail infrastructure.

What happens if one of these trucks should get stuck alongside the road somewhere? This can be a huge problem and have far reaching consequences not only for the fleet company, but also for the sector involved.

Aftermarket Truck Parts for Running Your Vehicles

Owning a truck is a maintenance-intensive operation and if you do not make sure the truck is maintained and serviced on a regular basis, you will soon find that your asset will become a liability. A truck’s primary use is for the transport of heavy loads and thus it is categorised under heavy vehicles. Due to the heavy loads that these trucks are tasked with transporting on a constant basis, there are parts that are susceptible to wear and tear along the way, more so than the parts of any other vehicle. It is for this reason why the importance of having your truck regularly serviced should be underscored.

If you are just starting out in the transport industry and already have a truck fleet, you will do well to ensure that all the parts on the vehicles are in great working condition. As you are starting your business up, you may not have the money to replace some parts of the truck with brand new, original spares. Aftermarket truck parts are still new parts. However, these parts are cheaper than original truck parts from the truck manufacturer.

These parts are manufactured by companies other than the vehicle’s manufacturer. Because of this, the parts aren’t as expensive as they would be when you purchase original manufacturer parts. This does not diminish its quality or durability, however, and you will still be able to find great bargains that will help you to keep your overheads in check.

If you are interested in learning about the different parts that are available as aftermarket truck parts, then read on:

  • The chassis;
  • Cabin;
  • Suspension;
  • Drive train; and the
  • Axles to name a few.

If you are concerned about that fact that these parts may be inferior quality to that of the original parts, this is certainly not the case. The difference between the parts is that the original parts are specially made for the truck by the manufacturer, while the aftermarket parts are merely a generic substitution of the original parts, which means that although they have a different name, their quality, use and purpose is exactly the same as the original parts.

Affordable Aftermarket Truck Parts

You may be wondering why these cheaper alternatives exist, and why the original parts manufacturer charges so much for the original parts. A need was identified in the market for cheaper truck parts, so companies decided to offer a more affordable alternative to the industry than original manufacturer parts.

There is no demised quality with aftermarket products. There is also nothing wrong with the original parts, except for the fact that they are far more expensive and are designed in such a way that it requires the supplier to install it themselves in many instances. This means that not are you only charged exorbitantly for the part, but you are also charged for the instalment of the part on your truck.

We are one of the industry leaders in the aftermarket truck parts industry in South Africa. For many years Truckpart have been helping the South African trucks industry to operate competitively and affordably. We will work with you to help you meet all your business goals and requirements, while keeping your trucks on the road and your drivers safe. We realise the importance of a reliable fleet of vehicles and the goodwill that can be lost when breakdowns and downtime occurs, which is why we are committed to the success of our clients. A lot of our business derives from word of mouth referrals, which is just another testament to our great customer service.

Stockists of Replacement Parts for Major Truck Brands

Trucks form part of a logistic chain that keeps our country running. At Truckpart, we realise that when a truck breaks down the need for replacement parts is urgent. We carry stocks for all major truck brands and our team of mechanics are all qualified to perform major overhauls. All parts fitted by us come a with 100 000 km warranty, which is backed by the manufacturers. This level of service has led to Truckpart being on the vendor list for all major insurance companies.

Repairs on trucks are made harder by the fact that all replacement parts are much larger than those of an ordinary motor vehicle. Our workshops are purpose built to deal with the bulk associated with repairs on busses and trucks. Parts that can be replaced at our workshop include:

  • Air Systems

This is a crucial part of truck maintenance because the air system is responsible for the breaks of the vehicle. This system requires constant monitoring, which is why we include regular checks as part of our fleet management service.

  • Clutch components

Due to heavy loads, the gearbox and clutch systems are placed under tremendous strain all the time. For this reason, clutch components cannot be repaired and have to be replaced.

  • Driveshaft

The size of a truck driveshaft or prop shaft makes replacement very challenging. The positioning of the driveshaft is vital to the smooth running of the vehicle. Truckpart makes use of specialised machinery to ensure that the balancing is perfect.

  • Power steering systems

Without a perfectly working steering system, trucks are virtually un-driveable. Our Truckpart team can remove and replace steering systems using one of our fully fitted mobile units.

  • Cylinder heads

A faulty cylinder head can result in a loss of compression. It can also, eventually, lead to disastrous leaks that may cripple a vehicle.

  • Wheel bearings

When driving a motorcar, the bearings will make tell-tale sounds to let you know that they need replacing. Truck drivers do not always have this luxury. With heavy workloads, truck bearings will not give much warning. We examine and replace these bearings quickly enough so that drivers need not worry about falling way behind schedule.

At Truckpart, we are able to assess problems quickly and efficiently. Our standard warranty means that drivers leave our workshops with the confident knowledge that all our truck replacement parts are of the highest quality and that their lives and those of other road-users are not at risk.

A Recognised Isuzu Truck and Parts Workshop

Isuzu is one of the largest truck manufacturers in the world and their vehicles are best serviced with genuine parts. There are many different models available for customers to choose from, depending on their requirements. Truckpart mechanics have been trained to carry out all aspects of maintenance using only manufacturer guaranteed parts. We realise that when people choose an Isuzu truck, they are purchasing more than just a heavy goods vehicle; they are purchasing the brand and its associated reliability as well. This is why when a truck leaves our workshop, it provides the standard of engineering that our customers expect from Isuzu.

Specific Isuzu truck maintenance tasks that our team is qualified to perform include:

  • Cabs and Paintwork

Isuzu cabs are manufactured with their trucks in mind, so any repairs or replacements must be done according to their specifications, including design and finishing. Our painting facility uses factory quality paints and our spares shop is able to replace any badges or logos that may be have been damaged.

  • Engines

As the heart of any truck, the engine needs to be maintained according to guidelines laid down by the manufacturer. This includes the spare parts that are used and performance specs. Any work done on the engines, ranging from head replacement/repair to valve refacing and even details like the fuel mix and piston firing order, must adhere to Isuzu standards.

  • Gearbox

A truck gearbox is a very intricate piece of machinery because the gears are designed to perform multiple gear splits that allow for smooth transitions and minimal shaking. Isuzu has refined their gearboxes to synchronise with engine output and any work done on them must bear this in mind.

  • Differentials

These transmit the power that is generated to the wheels. The differential ratios will differ for various makes of trucks. Mechanics working on Isuzu trucks must have an excellent working knowledge of the manufacturer specifications in order to perform work that meets with the stringent standards of Isuzu.

  • Connector rods

These are responsible for connecting the pistons to the driveshaft. Their replacement can be very costly. Our technicians have machinery that allows us to repair conrods and save companies the expense of a new part. All conrod resizing and honing is done according to Isuzu specifications.

We at Truckpart are proud of our associations with big brands like Isuzu. Our workshop will only use parts that have been designed with a specific truck in mind. We, furthermore, guarantee that all work is done up to factory spec.

Truck Spare PartsPeople get shocked when they see some of the prices that trucks are going for, the prices are very low and it looks good on paper. In most of those cases they end up spending so much more on repairing the truck that they could have bought a new one in the first place. To make sure that you do not fall into one of these situations you need to check the truck and its parts thoroughly.

It is crucial to find out the amount of mileage / kilometres it has done. Every part of the truck must be examined carefully to see what is working and what needs to be replaced. Should you be in doubt about the truck, share your concerns with the dealer and decide if you are going to buy the cheap one and replace all the parts or buy a newer one with less maintenance needed.

Choose a Truck Dealer That Only Stocks Quality

Just because you do not have the latest, does not mean that you cannot find a mint condition or well looked after truck.  You may even be able to get a late modelled truck within your budget; it really is the luck of the draw. You could even go to the opposite extreme and find a truck that is older and has a vintage value on it. These older trucks may not be up-to-date with the latest technology but they are extremely valuable and in demand.

The problem is that they do not make them solid like that anymore and there is only a certain amount of well looked after vintage vehicles. The internet is the quickest and best method to finding a cheap truck that meets your requirements. There are many dealers that sell online, just find a truck that you are interested in and that looks good. Once you have found the truck that you like, send a mechanic down to examine the quality and state that it is in.

When It Comes to Spares Always Check Your Prices

He also needs to see that the dealer is licensed and that they offer good prices on their trucks spares. There are plenty of ways on the internet to compare prices so that you know how much you should be paying and not being ripped off by a dealer trying to make a quick buck. The mechanic needs to take all of this into consideration before he can give you an honest result.

Quality Truck Spare Parts at Low Prices are easy to find all the right items for your trucks. The Internet has made such an impact because people that own trucking businesses or resell the parts don’t have to get off their chair.

Replacing Truck Parts from a Reliable Dealership

Replacing trucks is a major expense compared to purchasing the parts that are needed to keep the truck running. There is no need to replace your entire truck if the air brakes are not working or the batteries are going. You just need to find a supplier that sells good quality truck replacement parts. Before the internet this would have required you to travel to the far ends of the earth but today you don’t even have to leave the building.

Go onto the internet and search for truck replacement parts in your area. The results will show up very quickly and there are so many places to choose from. Replacing and installing these parts is definitely the way to go but they are not always easy to physically do. The brake rotor is one of the main components of the disc braking systems.

When you are pushing down on your brakes it clamps down on the pads to stop the wheels from spinning. Replacing the brake rotors look easy but they are not. When replacing them make sure that the wheel bearings are lubricated properly before putting the brake rotors back onto the wheel. By doing this it ensures that you will have a safer drive and the brakes will be smoother than ever.

The trucks have foundation braking which is a well known air braking system. There are only a few parts that are designed for these purposes like air reservoir tanks, air compressors, push rods, slack adjusters and valves among a few others. The air compressors are used to pump air from the braking systems into the storage tanks. Companies sell air brake compressors, brake discs, brake rotors and many other truck replacement parts.

The trucks battery boxes mainly consist of lead-acid battery, its function is to last very long and bear the tests of time. Without this box the truck batteries run very weakly. Without it you will notice straight away when you start the vehicle, the battery goes bad when you turn the ignition on and nothing happens. That is why the battery boxes are very important, they are there to protect the batteries and cover them. They are available in all shapes and sizes, irrespective of how big the truck is.

Then there are fuel tanks that are kept in a container, it stores fuels that are inflammable. The fuels are released into the engine to keep the engine running. There are many types of fuel tanks and they vary from plastic, metals to polyethylene. Truck replacement parts are a convenient way of getting the best parts available for your truck.
