Precise Steering Box and Diff Rebuilding

Having a transport business can be a difficult undertaking if unprepared. The first, and perhaps most important aspect of deciding to enter this industry, is to plan out the trucks. How many vehicles should you start out with, and how many you can afford?

When starting out in this industry, small companies tend to start with one or a couple of trucks in the beginning. The second aspect to take into account is that your trucks will need to be serviced and repaired. Finding a reputable service centre and truck workshop that can take care of things such as steering box and diff rebuilding will be pivotal to your success.

Avoiding Expensive Auto Repair Costs

There are ways you can minimise the costs associated with maintaining a fleet of trucks. Firstly, you need to acknowledge that maintenance and repair costs will be a very real and realistic cost that you will need to budget and plan for. Keeping your trucks in good condition and your drivers safe on the road is just as important for the future success of your company as securing new contracts and maintaining a healthy client retention rate.

However, there are things you can do to minimise these costs and to keep your trucks healthy and on the road:

  • Maintenance schedule: Keep the fleets’ maintenance on schedule. This entails the service of the vehicles, from tire pressure checks and tuning the truck up and, if needed, steering box and diff rebuilding.
  • Change the fluids and oils on schedule: This will be exceptionally important to the health of your fleet. Keeping on top of oil changes and all other fluid changes will impact heavily on the lifespan of your truck fleet. These include brake fluid, coolant, transmission fluids and power steering fluids, which all forms a crucial part to the efficiency of your vehicles and the way they run.
  • Brakes: Having your brakes checked regularly and replaced when necessary is important for the safety of your drivers and other road users. If you don’t replace worn brakes, you can be sure that you will end up spending a lot more money to replace the brake rotors and drums in future.
