About Truck & Van Conversions


Channel Commercials PLC was incorporated in August 1987 taking over the Leyland DAF franchise for Kent. The company started at a small site in Ashford employing 35 people and has now grown to four sites throughout Kent employing over 200 highly skilled staff.

Channel Commercials holds the DAF Truck and Nissan Commercial Vehicle franchises selling new and used trucks and vans, offering an all makes parts and service back up with ancillary services from the Paint & BodyshopSigns & Graphics as well as our Specialist Engineering, Truck & Van ConversionsRail and Diamond Blades & Fixings divisions. We are proud to be both Heavy and Light Commercial Vehicle Specialists.

Our Truck and & Van Conversions department was set up about 12-13 years ago using the building that is behind our current Signs & Paintshop department in Ashford. When our premises moved late 2006 to the building we are currently in, the department moved to our old premises and started expanded our services to ensure we became a “One Stop Shop” for businesses.

Our aim is to ensure that our customer's vehicles are on the road being used profitably. Our expertise is vehicle repair, your expertise is logistics. Let us take the worry of the vehicles away from you and let you do what you do best. 'It's What We Do'

With our factory trained technicians at four locations in Kent (Ashford, Strood, Sevenoaks & Aylesham near Canterbury) we are able to offer 24 hours a day, 365 days a year service, second to none. Our "One Stop Shop" includes D.O.T. preparation & presentation, Tachograph and Road Speed Limiter franchises. Our fully trained staff can advise on all aspects of vehicle specification, finance and current legislation to enable you to make the correct choice first time.
