Every DAF truck that comes off the production line has already been through rigorous development and testing before it reaches the customer.

This ensures that our trucks meet our very high standards in relation to safety, reliability, performance, operating costs and the environment. To ensure you get the maximum return from your trucks for your company, the same high standards are also applied to our DAF Genuine Parts.

That’s why it pays to ‘go genuine’ when it comes to parts!

  • DAF Genuine Parts come with a quality guarantee and UK-wide warranty
  • Maximum lifespan and performance
  • New OE componentry and competitively priced
  • Parts 100% tuned to your DAF truck
  • A genuine DAF part will come with an assurance that it will integrate completely with the other original components on your vehicle. The quality of the materials used, the measurements and controls used in its manufacture will all have passed DAF Trucks stringent quality tests. Pattern parts will not always be subject to such testing.
  • Buying non genuine parts online can be a nightmare. Online auction sites sometimes offer cheap reproduction or fake parts that sometimes need modification to fit and subsequently easily fail prematurely.

With the introduction of a new complete hub kit for the DAF CF and XF, DAF Trucks is underlining the importance of its Genuine Parts Programme.

The new hub kit offers long-term financial benefits thanks to its durability and reliability and contains all the essential parts needed for an effective and reliable hub replacement. The kit, made up of hub, brake disc, ABS ring, wheel bolts and associated fittings, is available under a single part number to simplify ordering. As with all DAF Genuine Parts, the kit is made up of the highest quality, essential components to ensure an optimum lifespan while benefitting from a full manufacturer-backed warranty available throughout the DAF Dealer network.

Not forgetting, of course, that when DAF Genuine Parts are installed by a DAF dealer, you not only have the warranty on the parts but also on the cost of installation. You are not only buying the part, but also the expertise and service. And because those parts are designed for your truck, you can be sure that they function properly and result in the optimum performance from your vehicle. Using non-original parts can have a negative impact on fuel consumption, which in turn leads to a negative impact on your profit margins.

“Where our customers demand superior replacement parts, DAF Genuine Parts provide the peace-of-mind of a quality guarantee,” says DAF Trucks’ Parts Marketing Manager, Glen Crompton. “Over the longer term, DAF Genuine Parts offer improved durability and reliability to deliver maximum uptime. Quite simply,” he says, “it pays to go genuine.

“We recently had to get a part replaced, so I got on the phone to Martin at Watts and within 5 minutes it was sorted. A replacement part was on its way – it was quick and easy and there was no problem.”

“You get good communication and service from Watts. Most of the time they have the parts we need and if they don’t they let us know straight away so we can make alternative arrangements until they can get the part to us, which are normally the next day.”
