Truck maintenance can be divided into preventative or corrective repairs. Preventive repairs or maintenance help to keep your rig in a tip-top condition to prevent major breakdowns. On the contrary, corrective repairs are those inevitable repairs you have to deal with before going out on the road. At Status Truck & Trailer Repair, we know it is imperative to keep your truck in good condition. Visit us or call us to talk to our truck repair shop manager to and establish a maintenance program today!

Getting on a preventative maintenance program is like eating healthier and exercising right for your truck.  No one likes to be fined for a lack of maintenance. Do the work and it will pay off.  It may not prevent your truck from needing major repairs, but it will reduce the chances that they will occur. Using a maintenance program will also improve the general condition of your truck.
