Regular Truck Service Improves the Life of Trucks

There’s a growing trend in medicine called wellness, where patients avoid long-term medical problems by focusing on staying in good physical and mental health. This has always been true in the automotive industry, where regular truck service and preventative maintenance greatly extends the life of the vehicle.

Truck repair can be scheduled by owners, operators, drivers or fleet managers based on the calendar or a vehicle’s mileage, or based on issues in the vehicle’s performance; but it always makes sense. It’s an important way to stay safe, stay in compliance with state and federal programs and stay on the road for your business and livelihood.

What Are the Service Needs of Your Truck?
Most drivers, owners and fleet managers seem to understand the benefits of maintenance while a truck is under warranty, but often lapse into irregular service intervals when the repairs are no longer covered by the manufacturer.

Whether you need light commercial van, truck or bucket truck service, you need the thorough diagnostic capabilities of experienced truck repair professionals. With these vehicles, medium/heavy trucks, buses, trailers and other equipment, your service should include a thorough inspection. Your vehicle(s) needs fluids and lubricants checked and occasionally flushed. Oil needs to be regularly changed, increasing in frequency depending on cargo, and an air filter change can result in a 10% bump in a vehicle’s fuel efficiency according to statistics compiled by the Department of Energy (DOE).

A thorough inspection means that your truck’s chassis, suspension, springs (leaf or coil), brakes, u-bolts, alignment, coolant and radiator systems, transmission and differential gear, tubes and hoses, battery, tires and more has been professionally evaluated. Truck repair also often includes a wash to remove pollution, road salt and highway sludge, which can extend the life of your fleet, even if you only have a single vehicle.
