Tire Services

The tires of semi-trucks experience a great deal of stress due to the heavy loads they carry and the long distances they cover. Therefore, maintaining the tires through regular inspections and timely services is an essential part of the truck’s overall preventative maintenance program.

Services we offer:

Regular rotation of tires is recommended to ensure even wear across all tires, extending their lifespan.

Monitoring and maintaining the correct tire pressure is crucial for the overall health of the tires, safety and fuel efficiency of the vehicle.

Balancing ensures the weight of the tires is evenly distributed around the axle. Over time, tires can become unbalanced, leading to uneven wear and increased stress on the truck’s suspension.

Regular alignment checks and adjustments can prevent issues caused by misaligned tires, including uneven tire wear, steering problems, and decreased fuel efficiency.

If a tire gets a puncture in the tread area, it can often be repaired with a patch. This involves removing the tire from the rim, checking the damage from the inside, and applying a patch to seal the hole. It’s an effective way to extend the life of the tire and avoid the cost of a replacement.

Depending on the wear and overall condition of the tires, replacement might be necessary. When replacing tires, we always make sure to use suitable ones that meet the specifications for your vehicle in particular.

Brake Services

Brake services are important for semi-trucks and their trailers, as they need to be in top condition to ensure safety. It’s crucial to ensure that the trailer brakes are synchronized with the tractor brakes to prevent issues like jackknifing or trailer sway. Regular maintenance of the trailer’s braking system, including inspections, fluid checks, and component replacements, helps ensure safe operation.

Services we offer:

The brake fluid should be checked regularly to ensure it’s at the proper level and that it’s not contaminated. Contaminated fluid can compromise the effectiveness of the brakes.

If the brake pads or shoes have worn down too much, they will need to be replaced to maintain effective braking.

If the brake discs or drums are damaged, they may need to be resurfaced or replaced. They are crucial for the braking system to function properly.

The brake lines should be regularly checked for any leaks or damage. Any problems can compromise the entire brake system’s effectiveness.

Many semi-trucks and trailers use air brake systems. These require regular checks of the air compressor, air lines, and brake chambers, as well as adjustments to the slack adjusters and other components.

Semi-Trailer Damage Repair Services

Repairing a damaged semi-trailer is a crucial part of its maintenance, as any damages could potentially compromise its structural integrity, safety, and usefulness. The specifics of damage repair services can vary based on the model and make of the semi-trailer, its usage, the recommendations of the manufacturer, and any regulations set by transportation authorities.

Services we offer:

The trailer floor undergoes a lot of wear and tear due to loading and unloading of goods. Regular inspection is necessary to identify any cracks, rot, or other damage. Damaged areas can sometimes be repaired, but if the damage is extensive, it may be necessary to replace the entire floor.

The walls of the trailer need to be checked regularly for any damage such as dents, punctures, or corrosion. Smaller areas of damage can often be patched, but larger areas may require replacement of the entire panel.

The roof of the trailer must be inspected for any leaks, cracks, or other damage. Minor damage can often be repaired with patching, but more severe or extensive damage may require more substantial repairs or replacement.

The doors of a trailer are crucial for the secure transport of goods. They need to be inspected for proper operation, and any damage to the door, hinges, or locking mechanism needs to be repaired.

It’s important to regularly inspect the overall structure of the trailer for any signs of damage or wear. This includes the chassis, supports, and other structural elements.

Regular inspections should check for any damage to the paint or other surface treatments. These coatings protect the trailer from the elements and corrosion, so any damage needs to be repaired promptly to prevent further deterioration.

The electrical system and lights need to be in working order, especially brake lights and signal lights for safety on the road.
