Does your company seemingly spend a copious amount of cash on rig repairs and maintenance? There are a few tips and tricks that you can do routinely which can decrease your long-term rig maintenance costs:
If you’re transporting corrosive materials like fertilizer or laboratory chemicals – then washing your truck daily will prevent corrosion.
Check your timing belts. Always check them for cracks or dryness and whether the right amount of tension is on the idlers.
After three years, you should consider refurbishing it. This includes routine major repairs and maintenance.
But no matter how much you maintain your rig, you can’t account for the unforeseeable. For example, recently in Calhoun County, South Carolina, a truck collided with a vehicle which ran a stop sign. A 74-year old woman died due to the accident. So even if you take the best precautions to keep your truck in maximum performance – accidents can still happen due to the actions of other drivers.
Getting a great insurance policy for your rigs is one of the better ways of dealing with unforeseen events. Sometimes, even if the other driver is at fault, the courts still might decide to make you pay just because your truck is bigger than their car. Having an insurance policy is great, because when these accidents arise – your policy will cover legal fees and will even appoint you an attorney.
