Servicing Hino Trucks: Why You Should Service Your Truck Regularly

Servicing Hino Trucks: Why You Should Service Your Truck Regularly

With a lot of industries and businesses emerging in Australia comes the need to transport various goods from one place to another. Trucks help businesses succeed in this regard. They allow products to be delivered in time and in good condition. This is why it is important to service your trucks regularly.

What Is Truck Servicing?

Also known as truck maintenance, this service is equivalent to going to a doctor for a regular checkup. It involves a physical examination of a truck and its vital components. This often includes checking and repair of the following:

 

  • Brakes
  • Air, oil and fuel filter change
  • Lube and oil change
  • Electrical and lighting
  • Steering and alignment
  • Tyres

Why Does Truck Servicing Matter?

Safety

Trucks carry tons of loads and spend a lot of time on the road, making them prone to wear and tear. Mechanical issues often arise later on, such as faulty brakes, flat tyres, starter failure, engine overheating, radiator malfunction, oil leakage and more. It might also endanger the driver and the onboarded goods.

Extend the life of your truck

If small mechanical issues are ignored, they will become bigger problems later on. You should get them fixed immediately or they might cause even more damage that might render the trucks unserviceable. By doing regular servicing, you are saving your truck from potential fatal issues and extending its life.

Avoid Big Expenses

When the damage to your truck becomes severe, the cost of repair soars up. Thus, early detection is important if you want to keep your expenses low. 

How Often Should a Truck Get Serviced?

Different trucks have different recommended intervals before they are scheduled for truck servicing. The most general one that applies is to have your truck serviced every six months or 10,000 km. However, several factors like the age, make and model of your truck should also be considered.
