Truckipedia Blog Category - 3 Advantages of Scheduling Heavy-Duty Truck Services In Lloydminster
Known as “the border city” between Alberta and Saskatchewan, Lloydminster is one of the main hubs of Canada’s oil and gas industry. The local economy is driven by petroleum and agriculture with the Husky Lloydminster Refinery established in the city and the location surrounded by endless fields of farmland.
It’s no surprise that heavy-duty trucks frequently pass through Lloydminster, serving as the perfect spot for drivers to rest and schedule maintenance work. Heavy-duty truck servicing in Lloydminster helps keep your fleet moving, keeps drivers safe on the road and reduces downtime should any issues arise.
Here’s what you can expect when you schedule your next service appointment at our First Truck Lloydminster location.
1. Factory-trained and fully certified technicians
All heavy-duty truck servicing is completed by factory-trained technicians who are certified to work on:
- The entire Detroit Diesel lineup of engines and transmissions
- Cummins engine platforms
- Caterpillar engine platforms
- Meritor Brand products
- Eaton brand products
What this means for our customers is peace of mind that their heavy-duty truck will be maintained properly with an expert who is trained on brand-specific components. Many truck service companies have the basic knowledge to complete general heavy-duty truck maintenance work, but certified and factory-trained technicians know the key differences between makes and models.
Certifications allow us to complete the service better, faster, reduce errors, and identify potential problems before they happen.
2. Longest service hours in the industry
First Truck Centre Lloydminster is open 7 days a week from 7:30 AM – 6:00 PM for Parts & Service and is the only HD service shop in the area open to supporting our customers on weekends. When customers have issues with their equipment after regular operating hours, we have service technicians on-call and a mobile service unit available when trucks are not able to travel to the dealership for minor repairs.
We understand that issues can happen at any time of the day, all days of the week. By offering the longest service hours in the industry, we can better serve you when repairs need to be made, preventing costly downtime and getting drivers back on the road safely. Additionally, we offer a full-service emergency mobile unit 7 days a week during work hours that is available to meet you where you are.
3. Extensive parts inventory
One of the most time-consuming and often frustrating challenges of heavy-duty truck services is waiting for parts to come in which can take days or weeks. Delays and having a truck out of commission for an extended period are costly – the good news is, this can be prevented.
Our dealer network across Western Canada gives us access to over 8 million dollars in parts inventory. Having an extensive parts inventory is one of the reasons we can complete repairs quicker than most heavy-duty truck service shops in Lloydminster.
