About

Recar has been repairing trucks and trailers for over 60 years. We are Australia’s largest wholly-owned network of commercial vehicle repair centres.

We pride ourselves on superior craftsmanship. Our experienced team of professionals have built a solid reputation for quality repairs making Re-Car Australia’s leading commercial vehicle repairer.

Our Story

In 1953, Recar was established to provide high quality repair and refurbishment services to trucks and trailers in Sunshine, Victoria. From these humble beginnings, Recar has grown to service the country’s major transport routes, with commercial vehicle repair centres in Melbourne, Brisbane and Townsville.

Each of Recar’s commercial vehicle repair centres is equipped with modern facilities enabling extensive smash repair services, including refinishing, sign writing and fleet refurbishments, for a wide variety of heavy vehicles, including prime movers, light commercial vehicles, tautliners, pantechs and tippers.

In 2005, Recar was acquired by Car-Trek Australia Pty Ltd. Under Car-Trek, Recar continues to lead the way in commercial vehicle repair.

Our People

Recar employs only the most highly skilled and experienced tradespeople, estimators and field representatives to ensure we provide superior repair and customer service. Our field representatives are experts in co-ordinating efficient and effective salvage, recovery and repair.

Our network of commercial vehicle repair centres is supported by our Head Office team in Melbourne who provide central administration, with a state of the art database and accounting and sales system, and is home to our national call centre and shared services division.
