You can count on us to keep you moving

CAL ISUZU has always provided trucks you can rely on because trucks are in our DNA.

We understand you need to complete your transport jobs on time.

The more jobs you complete the better. It’s the difference between landing new jobs and staying ahead of your competition. We’re ready to do whatever it takes to keep you moving because you drive us.

Our team can help you with anything you need — from picking out the right truck to financing to custom modifications. We’re here to solve any truck related challenge you have for us.

We can modify your new truck to suit all your business needs.  

Do you need to take weight out of your truck so you can add tooling? Do you need to add a crane? What about changing your suspension based on what you need your truck to do?

Whether you need to make a small change or customise your truck from the chassis up, our engineers can design what you need and keep your truck in line with safety standards. We also work with a preferred group of auto body builders and truck manufacturers to complete more complex builds.

We’ll be here to help you solve future challenges.

We always put our customers first.

As much as you need your truck to keep rolling, sometimes things happen and we’ll be here to fix any problem. Whether there is something small that’s nagging at you or a part that needs replacement due to wear and tear, we will get you back on track as quickly as possible.

We know your business depends on having the right truck to get the job done. We also know you need your truck to make your deliveries on time, every time. You can rest easy knowing we’re here to support your livelihood.

Our Humble Beginnings

  • 1980

    Commercial Autos Wreckers was established by Raman Parbhu as a small family business. He quickly built a reputation for buying and selling quality used Japanese trucks.

  • 1992

    Raman's brother Ashok joined the business, bringing his extensive knowledge of accounting and commercial law. We were renamed Commercial Autos Limited.

  • 1996

    CAL had grown rapidly and exploded into its new premises on State Highway 1, just north of Hamilton. With this move, came the expansion of the mechanical workshop. Speciality engineering, coach building plus panel and paint facilities added more benefits for our customers.

  • 1997

    Our family experienced the sudden and tragic loss of our founder, Raman. While this shook the team, Ashok managed to run forward with Raman's original vision. CAL continued to succeed despite the odds.

  • 2008

    The continued growth of CAL throughout the 2000s culminated in CAL securing the master Isuzu franchise for the Waikato region.

  • 2012

    CAL acquired Stevenson's, TCL trucking operations in Auckland and the Northland, securing our position as the leading truck retailer in New Zealand.

  • 2016

    We achieved record truck sales for our dealership with 704 new trucks sold. CAL ISUZU - Hamilton was also named “Metro Group Grandmaster” for the fourth year in a row. This is the highest General Motors dealership honour awarded globally.

  • 2017

    We've sold over 3,760 new trucks in the last 10 years, and we’re now the largest ISUZU dealership in New Zealand. Yet, we’re still about family and taking care of your needs first.

Our Vision

You drive us.

With CAL ISUZU, you gain the support of an outstanding truck dealership powered by a team of people who care about keeping you on the road.

We want your business to grow so you can do more than just provide for your family. And we’ll be here to help you every step of the way.
