Watts Truck and Van - Reviewed by Steve Underwood on .
We give our drivers a big say on the equipment we provide them, and when it comes to their trucks, it's the DAF XF every time. We've run Scania and MAN before, but our drivers insist the DAF is where they want to work. From an operational point of view, the DAFs we operate can be away from base for three weeks or more without requiring an AdBlue top-up. The other makes we've run won't last a fraction of that time, and we end up paying a premium for AdBlue on the forecourt.

They're the DAF agent and we have DAF vehicles. They turn our vehicles around quickly and we have a very good customer relationship with them. They do everything we ask of them. I'd recommend them because of the turnaround of the vehicles and the customer service.

They're local and they are very good on price. If I phone Christian (the Rep) with a problem, he will get back to me that day, hopefully 99% of the time, with a part number and saying he will get it in the next day. He's very good in finding parts and delivering them at a good price. I'd recommend them because of their service and the price. If I put an order in, in the morning, I'll get it that morning.

We've used them for so long now. I only use the parts side and deliveries. The deliveries are usually regular. The staff are pretty good. There's always room for improvement, sometimes they mess up on my deliveries, just little things that don't really matter. I'd recommend them because the service has always been good and Paul, the Rep, has always got me what I've wanted and found out the information I've needed.

They sell DAF trucks. The people that I deal with are as good as what I would expect and over the years they've become friends as well. The Service Department, I don't use them because in the past there's been time delays in getting work done. Sales and Parts are brilliant though, especially Martin Heaven, he is very good.

They used to be Cardiff Truck and they're our local DAF dealer. We get good parts service, a friendly service, they're efficient and prompt. We mostly use them for parts. We have a good relationship with them. If something hasn't been delivered on time, we manage to sort it out between ourselves. I'd recommend them because of the service we get from them.

Watts Truck and Van - Reviewed by Colin Jackson on .
The company I work for use DAF vehicles and they're the DAF dealer in our area. I use them for convenience for my MOT's. They're quite helpful and when the work load is really busy they will still try to accommodate us, which is all they can do really. They could give a little bit more feed back about when the vehicles will be ready and how long they will be. It's hard for me to say though because they might update our Head Office and I don't get to know about it.

We chose them for their parts. They get back to me quickly with a quote. I've had a few issues lately with them saying that parts will be delivered the next day by 12pm and they don't turn up, which has a massive impact on us. They've been let down by their courier but it's not been communicated to me, unless I raise it. I know that issues can arise and that's fine but they need to keep the lines of communication open.

We have a lot of repair and maintenance with them. The service is top notch, we never have a problem with them at all. I'd recommend them because I get an excellent service off them. They are quite flexible, if I need anything last minute they will do their best to fit me in and their follow up is very good as well. Their vehicle knowledge is very good, and their after sales. I can't fault them.

We go to them because we use DAF parts. When you really need something they will drop everything for you. If I ask for a part they will try their very best to get it for when I need it. They do price it well, if they can. I can't think of anything that I'm not really happy with. I have recommended them in the past, if our suppliers haven't got stock then Watts would be the main people I'd recommend.

Watts Truck and Van - Reviewed by Mark Howe on .
It's been a continuation from Cardiff Truck centre, which has been using Watts for about 30 years. They are the main DAF dealership and there's certain parts that you can only get from them. We have a good discounted structure for our parts. If we order parts we are near enough guaranteed to get them that day, they deliver to us up to 3 times a day. The knowledge of the parts people makes your life a lot easier, For example if you call them up to say your vehicle is making a funny noise, most of the time they can tell you the part that you need, it's very good service. If we have any issue they fix them straight away. I'd recommend them for their expertise, we get well looked after, it's good delivery and their knowledge of products. It's great.

We've recently re-struck up a relationship having DAF vehicles with them but we've used them historically for MOT's. They are our preferred supplier and they are immediately local. They have good communication. I haven't given them a 5 rating because we've only recently struck up the relationship with the DAF vehicles so I wouldn't want them to have nothing to work towards. I'd recommend them though, based on the communication.

We use them for cost reasons. It's generally OK but they need to concentrate on their attention to detail. I was expecting a part, we met them to collect the part and they had forgotten to order it. It's little things like that. I would recommend them for the general level of service and cost.

We've been with them for about 30 years. it's their capability, turning things around very quickly and the staff are excellent. They could stop charging me for nuts and bolts, 10p here and 20p there.

They're local to our depot. The turnaround time is acceptable, it suits our needs. Sometimes I have issues with the invoices, they email me the majority of the time and then sometimes I get a duplicate one in the post. If I wasn't on the ball I'd be paying for them twice. This isn't an every day occurrence though, it just happens every now and again.

We use Watts because historically over the last 40 years we've used DAF trucks. They have prompt delivery of parts, which is pretty good, the vehicles are collected on time and returned from servicing. The cost of parts is quite expensive, that's my biggest problem and when I do call up for parts prices I would appreciate an aftermarket price, automatically.

I've inherited the job but I would have chosen them as they are a DAF main dealer and they are in reasonably close proximity to where our site is. They have given a reasonably good service over the related short period that I've dealt with them with regards to the repairs and maintenance of the vehicles concerned. They just need to provide better communication and staff stability. It would also be good if they were ATF for MOT's and on TACO Centre, that would make them a lot more attractive.

We chose Watts Truck and Van through Cemex procurement and also because of the vehicles we're running. I get on well with the fitters, the Reception area and there's good communication. Although the communication is good, there are times when they fail to make the phone call by night, if there's an issue with the truck they're servicing. I would recommend them though, the workmanship is good.

Our vehicles are on a 6 year lease from Ryder Truck and Rental, Watts are a Swansea based company and so are we. They are pretty prompt and we've got a good relationship with them. We did have an issue where a vehicle failed an MOT and we weren't informed about it. It's now put points against our operators licence and it's out of our hands because Ryders own the vehicle. I only found this out because Ryder phoned me and told me.

We chose them due to their reputation. They take ownership of issues and we have an open and honest relationship. Sometimes there just needs to be the finer attention to detail. The vast majority of service is top notch but unfortunately silly mistakes let them down. They're only occasional but from an operational perspective it's enough to have effect on us.
