Advantages of Routine Fleet Vehicle Maintenance

Preventive maintenance is a critical component of the overall health and longevity of your truck fleet. Preventing, rather than reacting to, breakdowns can save your company money, improve safety and increase productivity. This service comes with a lot of benefits. First of all, it will help you improve mileage and reduce fuel costs. By checking the condition of your vehicles before heading out and making minor repairs, you can save money on fuel, wear and tear on your machines, and accidents caused by bad tires or faulty brakes. Getting better mileage from your vehicles decreases the amount of money you spend on maintenance, which means there is less strain on your budget.

Also, expect to see an improvement in scheduling and route coverage. The more you plan, the less likely you’ll be stuck without a vehicle. This is especially true when it comes to preventative maintenance. If you know that a few of your fleet’s trucks are going to be off the road for preventive maintenance on a certain day, you can ensure that there are other vehicles available to cover those routes. This can save your budget when you are able to keep drivers home when they aren’t needed and can ensure your clients do not experience a lapse in service.

The team of licensed technicians at Truck & Trailer Pit-Stop can organize various customized premium services. We can take care of full-service oil changes, D.O.T. inspection, a complete oil analysis, but also semi-truck tire checks. We are very proud to have an amazing team of licensed and trustworthy technicians, who will do their best to deliver a service that will exceed all your expectations. We will gladly give you advice on which services you should opt for, and together we will come up with the best plan that will take you back to the road as soon as possible.

Improve Mileage and Reduce Fuel Costs

The money your drivers spend on fuel likely makes up for a large percentage of your fleet’s costs. Drivers often need to fill up multiple times a week during long trips, and heavy loads can mean the vehicles go through fuel more quickly than you would like. Unfortunately, you can’t control the price of fuel, and you often have to adapt to the ebbs and flows of the market. While this can sometimes make it challenging to budget appropriately, proper fleet vehicle maintenance can help.

Having the right routine maintenance can help ensure your fleet’s engines are all working at optimum capacity, getting the most miles out of every gallon. While you may not be able to control the price of diesel, you can make sure your fleet uses it wisely.

Proper Scheduling and Route Coverage

If you know that three of your fleet’s trucks are going to be off the road for preventative maintenance on Wednesday, you can ensure that there are other vehicles available to cover those routes. Additionally, you may be able to reassign those regular drivers, give them the day off, or re-arrange their working hours to accommodate the maintenance. These are the benefits of planning ahead. This can save you money when you are able to keep drivers home when they aren’t needed and can ensure your clients do not experience a lapse in service.

Reduce Unexpected Service and Maintenance

Sure, from time to time, it’s likely that you will have to take a truck off the road without warning. Accidents happen, parts wear out, and vehicles break down. However, doing so can cause an undue burden on your staff as well as your customers. Additionally, it can cause major stress for fleet managers as they scramble to find coverage.

With the correct preventive maintenance for semi-trucks you can take a more proactive approach to scheduling service, which can help spot potential issues before they turn into major problems.

Preventative Maintenance Available at Truck & Trailer Pit-Stop

The last thing you want to experience is any type of malfunctioning in the middle of the road. Not only that you will lose a lot of money, but that can be extremely dangerous for the driver as well. That is why you should do whatever you can to prevent that, and going for a regular preventive maintenance service is for sure one of the most important steps you can take.

During this service, you can expect us to do the simpler task at the beginning, such as oiling or checking the level of fluids. But surely, the maintenance also includes a bit more complicated tasks. For example, we will make sure to replace a part that is prone to wear down, such as tires, brakes, air filters, or windshield wipers.

Our certified team performs a thorough inspection, servicing needed areas and making any necessary adjustments to ensure your fleet is running smoothly. Proper maintenance helps to prevent breakdowns, which can be costly and inconvenient. It also prevents more repairs down the line and improves safety and the image of the company. Maintenance is vital to sustaining a safe, reliable fleet.

Full-Service Oil Changes

If you’re looking for a full-service oil change, we can get you in and out the door in just 40 minutes. We use the best oil filters, the best brands of motor oil and can work with all major engine manufacturers. With eleven locations throughout California, Texas, Oklahoma, and Georgia, we’re the preventative maintenance shop of choice for countless truckers across the country.

Department of Transportation (D.O.T.) Inspections

Your semi-trucks need a Department of Transportation inspection once a year, and missing the date can result in hefty fines for your business. At Truck & Trailer Pit-Stop Center, we have trained and certified inspectors on-site to perform quick, easy, and thorough evaluations of your fleet. Make sure that all of the parts and components of your fleet’s trucks are in safe working order, and bring attention to any items that may need repair to keep your vehicles in compliance with the Department of Transportation.

Complete Oil Analysis

Do you want a more in-depth picture of how well the engines in your fleet are functioning? The semi-truck engine oil analysis at Truck & Trailer Pit-Stop is just the service you need. We’ll provide you with a better understanding of your engine health, including documenting levels of specific wear metals and contaminants that may be present in your lubricant and what this could mean for your vehicle.

Semi-Truck Tire Checks

Tire checks are an important part of fleet vehicle maintenance, and on semi-trucks and trailers it can seem like quite a feat. There are many tires on each vehicle, and the improper PSI on just one can lead to a blowout or a major accident on the highway. Additionally, having the incorrect PSI or damaged tires can cause your trucks to handle more poorly and have poor fuel economy.

At Truck & Trailer Pit-Stop, we can check the tire pressure in each tire so that your drivers don’t have to. We’ll make sure that each tire is at the correct level and ready to hit the road before we send you out the door.
