There’s no substitute for experience

Childers Radiator Service has been a family owned and operated business for over 30 years.

We’re busy with automotive, heavy machinery and industrial radiators as well... from trucks to trains and static plant cooling systems too.

“We have the expertise in all types of radiators, for all makes and models. We work hard to deliver service that will get your vehicle repaired to the highest standards... up and running as soon as possible.”



Cars and 4WDs

Efficient cooling is vital to the life of your engine and if you are experiencing increased temperature gauge readings, have any leaks or accident damage we can solve the problem.

We stock only high quality components and can usually source radiators for any make and model quickly should a replacement be necessary.

Services offered:

• Repairs and clean-outs

• Re-cores

• New assemblies

• Any make/model

You can trust Childers Radiator Service to quickly diagnose any cooling system or radiator problem and to provide lasting solutions.  

“There are many cheap radiators available online but it is our experience that if you buy online you’ll get what you pay for.

Get the assurance of quality parts and have your radiator professionally fitted.”

Trucks and Buses

Reliability is the life-blood of any logistics business.

Don’t take chances and have your trucks cooling system checked as part of the regular maintenance schedule.

We offer inspection, maintenance and full repair services.

We make any repairs to radiators, intercoolers, oil coolers, fuel tanks, heat exchangers and can supply cooling related spare parts.

Classic & Vintage Specialists

We love to work on vintage and classics...

Old school cars require old school skills and if you are looking for a radiator for your project we will do our best to source what is available or can custom fabricate to get as close as possible to the original.

We can also improve the radiator efficiency in most cases so you’ll get a radiator better than new!


Dave Fenn, the owner of Childers Radiator Services established his first radiator business in 1986, servicing the BHP Iron Ore fleet in the Pilbara Region of Western Australia.  

BHP’s fleet consisted of 50 locomotives of various models such as c/class, m/class,  dash 7, dash 8 these trains are now one of the longest in the southern hemisphere in one of the hottest environments  so the cooling systems were critical and carefully monitored.

Dave purchased Childers Radiator Services in 1998 servicing the sugar industry and has been involved in the replacement of the fleet engine and cooling systems at the Isis and Tully Sugar Mills.

This requires manufacturing and suppling new radiators, oil coolers and header tanks specifically made to suit their DH locomotives.
