Driving a truck is a difficult job under the best of circumstances. One thing no trucker wants to happen is a breakdown on the highway or on a route. Not only are these trucks costly to tow, but in many locations a wrecker capable of towing is not readily available or will be incredibly costly to hire.
In the Gainesville area, as well as in other locations across the country, emergency semi truck repair is available as a mobile service. This is an ideal solution to the problem as there is no need to tow the truck to a mechanic. Instead, the mechanic simply comes to the truck.
Finding Reliable Service
As with any type of repair service, it will be essential to ensure the person arriving with the mobile repair is a certified mechanic with expertise in semi truck repair. When calling into the service, it will be important to confirm a heavy-duty truck mechanic will be provided to complete the repair.
Time and Location
Most mobile repair services offering semi truck repair have a wide geographic area as their territory. This means they may be able to provide service even if the truck is in a location miles away from Gainesville.
The dispatcher will be able to provide information on repair coverage based on your location as well as the approximate time of arrival for the repair vehicle. Typically, these types of calls will be a priority for the garage.
Most professional truck drivers have a good idea of the problem with their rig. Be sure to provide as much information as possible to the dispatcher. In most cases, expect the mechanic to call back and discuss the potential problems with the vehicle, which may include something minor, such as a repairing a flat, to dealing with electrical system malfunctions or engine problems.
The call back will ensure the mechanic arrives with the most likely repair equipment needed, speeding up the process and getting the truck back on the road as quickly as possible.
