When your on highway truck breaks down, it can be costly and stressful. A breakdown can have a domino effect with delays that might impact many businesses. A great service provider in Northern BC can be the difference between a breakdown with minimal downtime or a costly breakdown for you and your customers. 

The best service providers have expert mechanics and access to high-quality parts with convenient locations and hours.

On Highway Truck Parts and Service Providers

In the case of a breakdown or serious issue, you want to know that your truck is in the right hands. We offer our Express Assessment service, which is the commitment to provide a preliminary diagnosis and communication to you within 2 hours of arrival. Here at Velocity Truck Centers, we want to minimize your downtime, getting you back on the road as quickly as possible. 

The Benefits of On Highway Truck Maintenance

Strict preventative maintenance should be part of every truck’s routine. The benefits are undeniable. 

Cost Efficiency

Effectively prioritizing preventive maintenance for on highway trucks ensures potential issues are addressed before they manifest into something bigger and more expensive. This approach reduces the frequency and cost of extensive truck repairs.

Due to their large-scale operations, maintenance providers such as Velocity Truck Centers, acquire vehicle OEM or non-OEM parts in bulk from trusted suppliers, allowing them to offer premium parts, such as tires and fluids, at a reduced rate. Due to our provider network, we have access to over $15 million in parts inventory for our customers.

While it’s challenging to influence gas prices, well-executed ongoing fleet service guarantees improved fuel efficiency. A meticulously maintained engine operates optimally, ensuring balanced fuel consumption and not requiring constant oil changes.

Prolonged Vehicle and Equipment Lifespan

Beyond just ensuring vehicle health, service providers also look into factors that could extend a vehicle’s lifespan. Factors like driving style, routes taken, and load weights might be fine-tuned to boost engine performance and ultimately extend the life of on highway trucks.

Operational Availability

Leveraging advanced technology and automation, coupled with their skilled mechanics, truck maintenance providers can accurately pinpoint fleet needs and implement strategies to boost productivity swiftly and efficiently.

Improved Inspection Results

Consistent monitoring and timely maintenance keep trucks in prime condition, ensuring they pass inspections with outstanding results.
