Maintenance 101 Timing is Everything

"They" say a lot of things about time. Timing is everything. Timing is key. Time is money. Everything they say about time is very applicable to the trucking industry.

Time equals money for truckers like you. Many of you are paid based on the miles you drive. The more time you have, the more miles you can drive, the more money you can make. The more time your truck is in the shop, the less time you have on the road, leading to less money.

That's where the timing is everything fits in. It's vital to get your regular maintenance done on time! Regular maintenance done at the right time can save you thousands of dollars and time waiting on your truck to get out of the shop. Waiting to get lube or change out a gear box can lead to other costly problems.

Yes, it takes time to complete regular maintenance, but at Speedco we're built for speed. We'll get you in, out, and on your way as fast as possible.

Did you know?

  • Fuel can account for 39 percent of annual cost of operating a truck. It could be even more if you're truck isn't maintained and is burning more fuel!
  • 51.3 percent of emergency road service calls are for tires. A tire check with every PM at Speedco is your preventative measure to these roadside calls.
