Why Practice Preventive Maintenence with your Semi Truck and Trailer in Atlanta, Lawrenceville, and Duluth Georgia?
In the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulations, it states that a carrier must have a program to periodically inspect and maintain all vehicles that are under its control, no matter how many trucks they have. The FMCSA requires that you, as a carrier, inspect and maintain your vehicles frequently enough to assure you are releasing safe vehicles on the road. It’s also important to keep record of all inspections.
Preventive maintenance of your semi truck and trailer involves looking at the vehicle, determining what on the vehicle needs checking, adjusting, lubricating, or replacing, and at what interval it all needs to be done.
Three preventive maintenance steps:
• Determine what to check, lubricate, and/or adjust
• Figure out how often to check, lubricate, and/or adjust
• Determine when to replace or rebuild specific parts or components.
