A message from the President of Barstad & Donicht, Inc.

As President of Barstad & Donicht, I have made a strategic business decision to incorporate our firm into the operation of Kelly's Truck Repair. Kelly's can provide us with the environment of an established full service truck and trailer service and repair facility, support staff, and state of the art equipment; complementing our work, and allowing us to deliver a better value, and offer a one stop truck and trailer shop to service customers.

As of August 1, 2014, Barstad & Donicht will close our Aladdin Avenue location and move our operation to Kelly's Truck Repair at 495 Hester Street in San Leandro.

I would like to thank our clients for many years of patronage, and ask that you join us as we enter a new exciting era of serving you. Friendly staff will continue to help you, and remember, if it's made of metal or likes to be towed, we've got you and your needs covered. You see, at Barstad & Donicht and Kelly's Truck Repair, we have been in busines a combined 100 years, and we've got the experience that it takes to be the best. We're committed to serving you with honesty, quality, and value.


Michael Dorn, President

Kelly’s keeps fleets on the road with parts availability and fabrication

San Leandro, Calif.—Kelly Green, owner of Kelly’s Truck Repair in San Leandro, said light-, medium- and heavy-duty truck repair requires a back-to-basics approach for mechanics and a penchant for problem solving.

“We work on all types of trucks, equipment, buses, cranes, and the equipment mounted on them. We identify the problem... (see full article here)

The mystery of proper maintenance...

It’s a dark and stormy night; the weather is cold, rainy, and miserable, but your driver has just delivered his load and is returning home to the warehouse with an empty trailer.

He comes across a weigh station with its flashing sign, “ALL TRUCKS MUST STOP AT SCALES,” and of course your driver complies.

The DOT officer exits the office in his rain gear and motions your driver to pull forward. He asks the driver to turn on his lights and proceeds to circle the rig.

Your driver is feeling very relaxed and confident; he doesn’t see the ticket coming. “What's this?” your driver exclaims, “Red tagged for a frayed brake hose and burned out clearance light?”

The day is getting longer and your driver is on overtime; you'd better call for roadside assistance. The traffic is heavy and three long hours have passed, now the roadside assistance vehicle arrives. The $1.00 burned out bulb and the $10.00 frayed brake hose are replaced - the company paid $400.00 for roadside assistance – the driver is finally on his way home to the barn.

Look on the bright side; the parts were only $11.00.

If this is an all too familiar story and if you would like to avoid an unhappy ending, call Kelly’s Truck Repair. Let us setup a routine maintenance and inspection schedule for your truck or fleet. And don't forget, we are available for roadside assistance – we might even throw in the bulb for free.
