Heavy Truck & Equipment Preventative Maintenance
Trucks and equipment have come a long way since the first ones were invented. From the first simple engines on wheels, they’ve developed into highly specialized machines with thousands of moving parts, unique pieces, and modern technology. But as with anything that gets more complicated, they are also more difficult to maintain and repair – especially if you always leave it until there’s already a problem. Regular maintenance of your truck or equipment is, hands-down, the most sure-fire way to make it more reliable. And not only that, but it ends up saving you money in the long run as you are not always paying for costly repairs when you desperately need them.
Getting 90-day inspections on your truck or equipment is a great way to identify potential issues that will affect the lifespan and reliability of it. By bringing it in to us, we can find these issues while they are small instead of waiting until they become large, costly repairs – keeping your unit safe and ready to go to work when you need it. When your vehicle is checked over by a professional shop like West Tech Mobile, that peace of mind will also prevent unexpected problems at roadside inspections and scales. All of this adds up to big savings in time, money, and the overall life of your heavy truck, as well as in keeping your customers happy with your service.
Another big bonus of visiting our expert technicians is that we monitor all of your repairs and inspections with our in-house computer system, so there’s documentation of everything we find and do during the course of work. This includes CVIP and 90-day inspections, and we have formulated and organized a quarterly inspection program that looks at all the key areas of your unit, such as: engine and computer issues; powertrain lube leaks; brake and steering fluid; abnormal tire wear; lights and wiring; driveline problems; and running repairs. We always provide a detailed, written list for our customers’ approval, in order to provide the most cost-effective way of keeping the truck and equipment reliable and on the job.
If you’re thinking that an inspection every 90 days, or even every 180 days, is too much – well, this is exactly why you need it! Major problems don’t appear overnight, after all – they start small and snowball, getting bigger and bigger. A 90-day inspection is like a mini-CVIP inspection: it’s a condensed version that provides a detailed analysis of your machine, and it pinpoints repairs that are required to provide a cost-effective maintenance program on your unit, before it costs much more than necessary. We work in conjunction with owners of everything from single units up to large fleets, and develop maintenance programs that extend the life of their units thereby reducing costs. Depending on our customers’ needs, we will tailor a program that best suits the individual business requirements of the company: for example, a vacuum truck doesn’t need the same program as a 5-ton delivery truck.
