Trucks see a lot of wear and tear; they travel long distances (sometimes on not very well-surfaced roads). They carry heavy cargo and this too adds to the overall wear-and-tear. The one way to ensure your heavy vehicle is in top condition at all times is to get it regularly serviced at a well-established truck center.
Aside from this, if you notice anything wrong in the functioning of your truck or trailer, we recommend that you don’t defer the repairs as the problem will only aggravate over time and become more problematic and expensive to fix. When you are looking for a truck center, settle for one that has experience; a good reputation and provides prompt, professional, honest and cost-efficient services. A credible truck center will provide a range of services such as:
- Heavy vehicle maintenance
Regular heavy vehicle maintenance covers a number of different aspects such as:
- Oil change
- Cooling system
The objective of carrying out regular truck maintenance services is to ensure that your vehicle’s engine performs optimally and that the wear and tear on your trailer or truck are reduced. They will use genuine fluids, oils, and spares for replacement to ensure your vehicle functions well.
- Electronic diagnosis
Today, all modern trucks have a number of electronic systems, all of which are interconnected in some way and dependent on each other in the functioning of the vehicle. This means a breakdown or even a small problem in one can affect the workings of other components and cause problems. A professional truck center will use state-of-the-art electronic diagnostic equipment and tools to troubleshootquickly and accurately diagnose any problems that exist in your engine.
Once the diagnosis has been carried out expertly, theywill providesuitable solutions as well. The truck center will also have a well-stocked parts inventory so that the correct parts are available to carry out the service work efficiently; your vehicle can be overhauled and can be back on the road in no time.
- Heavy truck tire services
Just as various components of heavy vehicles have to endure a lot of wear and tear when they are on the road, the truck and trailer tires also deteriorate over time. When you are getting any other maintenance work done and it’s noticed that your tires are worn or have become damaged, you can get these replaced at the truck center. Most truck centers keep specific brands of tires and you can check whether they have the ones you prefer for your vehicle. The company will sell, install and maintain heavy vehicle tires.
- Heavy duty tows
There are times when even the best-maintained trucks break down when they are on the road. In this situation, you can contact a reliable truck centerfor emergency roadside assistance. Regardless of whether you have a trailer or a heavy duty truck, if the technicians identify that the problem cannot be fixed on site, they would tow your vehicle to the truck center and carry out the necessary repair work there.
- SAAQ inspection agents
It’s important to get mechanical inspections done for your heavy duty vehicle at regular intervals. Look for a truck center that has SAAQ (Société de l’assurance automobile du Québec) accreditation to perform these inspections on trailers and heavy-duty trucks.
