Did you know that most truck breakdowns and late deliveries are preventable? Sure, there are often unforeseen circumstances that can arise; you may blow a brand new tire, or your DEF/DPF system may suddenly malfunction. However, those scenarios are actually very rare, and most of the problems are avoidable.
Any time a tire blows out, there were generally warning signs prior to it happening. Bad alignments are easy to spot, as are improperly inflated tires. When was the last time you checked the pressure? Was the steering pulling in any direction? When was the last truck alignment? If you get regular maintenance on your truck, and constantly check your tires, the chances of you having a blow-out are virtually zero.
If your truck doesn’t start perfectly all the time, it would be wise to get your starter and alternator checked out. It should turn over without any problems every single time. When it starts giving you trouble, you are likely to get stuck somewhere if you don’t get it inspected quickly. The same goes for any problems you may encounter with your trailer. If you notice a small leak, the worst thing you could is ignore it. It’s only going to get worse, and it can lead to some catastrophic issues if it isn’t corrected quickly.
