PLAN FOR YOUR TRUCK’S PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE!
Contact H.K. Truck Center’s Service department to set up your preventive maintenance plan.
H.K. Truck Center can tailor a Preventive Maintenance Program to your fleets specific needs. We understand that each fleet of trucks has different needs.
Minimize liability negligence for fleets by participating in H.K. Truck Center’s Preventive Maintenance Program!
Fleets needing PM services require a consistent schedule in which their vehicles receive preventative maintenance.
As most fleets operate under “severe” duty, PM intervals should be held at a slightly shorter prior of time then the vehicle owner’s manual recommends. Efforts should be made to average vehicle service life, especially on parts likely to wear. This minimizes costs so vehicle spends less time in the shop. The average miles reached when a part failed should be calculated into it’s maintenance time. Scheduling may have to be individually set as different vehicles require different amounts of care. Vehicle maintenance should not be set too often, as it is neither cost nor time effective.
Precluding maintenance, fleet managers should sign off the vehicle for maintenance and fill out basic information, as well as an included complaints/concerns, feedback section for both the fleet managers and primary driver.
Program should include:
Worn Parts Replacement
Engine oil and filter changes
Engine and transmission mounts
Drive shafts or CV joints
Belts and hoses
Electrical system components
Steering and suspension system
Undercarriage and frame
Exterior and interior lights
Body, glass, and mirrors
Windshield wiper systems
Seat belts and seat structures
