Fleet Semi Truck Brake Services
Semi Truck Fleets Need Reliable, Fast Brake Inspection and Repair
At Highland Truck and Trailer we have heard a few first-hand accounts that say the sudden force of hitting a runaway truck ramp is just like being in a head-on collision. Trucks can vault or overturn causing thousands of dollars of damage to your rig and load. Your brakes are the only mechanism that can stop 60,000 pounds of freight moving at top speed. Let Highland Truck and Trailer in Ames keep your truck fleet's brakes in top-notch condition.
Fast Repairs When You Need Them
Awareness of decreased reaction time, an unusual burning smell, or odd noise can help you catch damage to your air brakes before it becomes a high-cost auto repair or an accident. Our shop can replace brake pads and shoes and restore your truck's drums and rotors. Once an issue is diagnosed, our professional mechanics at Highland Truck and Trailer will resolve the problem quickly and get your fleet back on the road fast.
Regularly Scheduled Brake Maintenance For Your Fleet
Avoid fleet downtime and schedule regular air brakes inspection a minimum of twice a year to find problems resulting from normal "wear and tear." Your air brakes work in a high-pressure environment where air from the storage tanks flows, pushing the piston down the brake chamber to the pushrod to move the slack adjuster which turns and pushes the brake shoes against drums or rotors. The intense force and compression that makes air brakes so reliable can also create problems over time. At Highland Truck and Trailer our highly-trained mechanics inspect and diagnose mechanical integrity failures, small air storage tank leaks and worn-out brakes pads before they cause costly downtime for your fleet.
With properly tracked and scheduled planned maintenance, Highland Truck and Trailer keeps your fleet on the move. Occasionally a vehicle in your fleet may need to take an unexpected trip to the repair shop. Never worry, at Highland Truck and Trailer in Ames our specialized fleet mechanics will get your fleet vehicles back up and running fast, leverage cost reduction processes and utilize a large inventory of in-stock parts.
