Hornery Water & Transport

It’s our purpose to deliver an outstanding service with a guarantee of work performed to the highest level with uncompromised safety by passionate people. This utmost care and technicality reflects through to the Hornery Fleet of trucks which are maintained at the highest standards, cleaned, serviced and pre-started before any vehicle leaves our premises.

Our Point of Difference

  1. All vehicles are cleaned through our high pressure wash down bay every day regardless of hours or condition. This prevents weed and seed contamination, maintains our fleet compliant and allows our fitters to thoroughly inspect the mechanics on our vehicles.
  2. Our fitters perform a compulsory prestart and inspection of each truck after the end of every shift and our drivers complete their prestart checklist before leaving the premises each morning. This ensures our fleet is cross checked and we can be confident of knowing we have the safest fleet on the road.
  3. Our fleet sustains an elite level of compliance as all our vehicles brakes are tested using the computerized BM14200 In ground Roller Brake Tester and Shaker Plates installed in our state of the art workshop. The Brake Tester is the safest and most accurate measure available. The shaker plate on inspection from within the pit, allows the mechanics to have access to identify excess wear and tear in all moving parts. The brake tester generates a report on each vehicles individual axle, braking ability and weights.
