Keeping-it-Cool-Gatton Auto Electrical

As many truckies would attest, a properly working in-cab air conditioning system can make a world of difference while behind the wheel during the peak of summer. Based in Queensland’s picturesque Lockyer Valley, Gatton Auto Electrical and Air Conditioning understands this very well, providing a full range of air conditioning services for all types of vehicles, including trucks.

A local family owned and operated business, Gatton Auto Electrical prides itself on its customer service and technical expertise. It has been servicing the Queensland transport industry since the late 1990s, with current owner Luke Rickuss taking over the business four years ago. A Mack Trucks master technician, Rickuss says, “We’ve been in the industry and know how tough it can be. We provide air conditioning services for trucks – along with offering repairs, installations, diagnostics and testing.”

When it comes to truck refrigeration, Gatton Auto Electrical understands the importance of having it working smoothly before summer hits. “Truck drivers rely on their air conditioning systems to keep them comfortable while our on the road. That’s why it’s important to get it serviced by a licensed specialist before the summer weather arrives. Our refrigeration mechanic has been in the game for over 30 years. With the weather starting to heat up at this time of year, now is definitely a good time to get air conditioning units in tip-top shape,” Rickuss says.

He adds that regular maintenance of air conditioning systems is really important as it equates to reduced repair costs and system longevity. “Proper maintenance of air conditioning systems has been proven to improve the lifespan of the unit and improve its performance.”

By securing regular maintenance from a team of professionals, it also allows issues to be identified and addressed early, before a small issue turns into a big one – and a costly one. Replacing faulty parts is far less expensive than replacing a whole unit.

Gatton Auto Electrical uses only state-of-the-art equipment, helping to reduce downtime and get vehicles back on the road sooner. Over the past two decades, the business has built a reputation for quality workmanship and expert services throughout the Lockyer Valley.

The Gatton Auto Electrical team offers a full installation service, whether it is a replacement part or a new addition to your vehicle. Rickuss says his team has the experience to do it right the first time.

Recently, just 6km from the workshop, new road train unhooking facilities have also opened, so Gatton is perfectly positioned to cater to the Queensland truck community. The business also offers onsite services, travelling anywhere from Ipswich to Toowoomba.

To book in an air conditioning service or discuss your air conditioning requirements, call the workshop on 07 5462 4922.
