Welcome to Newports Parts & Services

Supplying and Servicing the Hawkes Bay and beyond for over 30 years. We will get your revenue generators and the vehicles and machinery close to your heart, back on the road or in the paddock.

Founded in 1984, Newports is a local family owned horticultural, industrial and commercial parts and automotive electrical and air-conditioning specialist.  Trucks, trailers and machinery, don't generate a cent of revenue if they aren't operating.  Give us a call and we will be there as soon as we can.  As the most experienced member of our team says – “nothing too old – nothing too new”.

From tractors to excavators, harvesters, trucks and trailer units, horse trucks and floats, RVs to your vintage or muscle cars. We have vintage staff for vintage equipment and young guns for installing the latest gadget.  If it breaks, we can come to you to get you back up and running.  We are also happy to conduct preventative diagnostics and maintenance on high value items, to ensure that they don’t stop when you need them most.  And if it is a battery or automotive parts that you need, look no further.  Flick us an email or hop on the phone.

"This morning I had to call into your business for a simple repair to my work vehicle.  Although your staff were extremely busy, I must commend them.

The two staff I met with, went out of their way, were extremely helpful and friendly (they could obviously see I was a fish out of water!!) supplying me with a lovely cup of coffee while I waited for my equipment to be fixed. The pair of them are a credit to your company and were a pleasure to deal with.  Please pass on my thanks to them.  They do you proud"



5 Stars!!!!!

"Great people & efficient service. Got new batteries in our motor home plus they upgraded our solar panel."
