The best way to avoid costly repairs to your truck fleets as a manager or business owner is to have a preventive maintenance program in place. With consistent checkups for your trucks and commercial vehicles, you’ll ensure that you meet DOT regulations and road checks. Truck maintenance is also a vitally important safety measure for drivers, shipments, and road-sharing traffic.
This Fall season brings windy weather, rainstorms, night chills, and sometimes-hazardous conditions. If you and your trucks spend the bulk of your time on the road, it’s important to mark the changing of the seasons with the right maintenance steps. Seasonal maintenance keeps the trucks performing at their best and ensures safety and efficiency in your daily driving. Fall maintenance isn’t as in-depth as winter’s big makeover, but a few adjustments are still needed to keep your vehicles in top working order.
Next to fuel and equipment, maintenance is one of the costliest aspects of the trucking industry. Simply keeping up with a routine is tough enough without also having to respond to expensive unanticipated emergencies. Truck maintenance is all about preventing problems before they happen. The fall season provides a soft buffer between the extremes of summer and winter, giving us a comfortable time to make changes and replacements before the weather starts to get truly cold. A little preparation goes a long way when it comes to dealing with harsh conditions.
Fall driving conditions, though less severe than winter, still require you and your drivers to be prepared. See our list of product collections here for your maintenance needs!
