About Our Brake Repair Services for Trucks & Commercial Fleets

The weight of a semi-truck trailer places a lot of strain on brake components and can cause them to deteriorate over time. For your safety, and for the safety of everyone around you on the road, make sure to get your brakes serviced and maintained regularly.

How to Know When Your Truck Needs Brake Repairs

How much your tires wear varies based on your use of the vehicle, the weight of your cargo, road conditions and exposure to the elements. Typically, air brake pads require replacement every 50,000 miles. While regular inspections and service can eliminate the most serious brake issues, there are some signs that you may have a brake problem. If you have trouble stopping or notice any of the following, have your brake system serviced immediately.

Noise when braking

If you notice scraping, grinding, whistling or squeaking sounds while braking is a sign your pads are likely worn to the point where the calipers are grinding against your rotors. This requires immediate service. Not doing so can result in damage to your rotors and end up costing you much more in repairs.

Your truck pulls to the left or right

If you’re noticing pulling while driving, this might indicate issues with your calipers or air brake hose. It can also indicate issues with the alignment of your tires, but regardless, you should have your truck serviced as soon as possible.

Soft brakes

If you notice that your brake pedal goes down further than normal this could indicate a leak or a seal failure which has resulted in the loss of brake fluid.  Typically the braking system will still work, it’s just that the pedal feels almost “mushy”. A technician can check your brake fluid levels.  If no leak is identified it may indicate deterioration of your master cylinder.

A suspension system that functions correctly helps stabilize your truck, smooths the ride, and maintains the proper axle spacing and alignment. Our team can maintain your vehicle’s suspension.

Oil & Fluid

The key to keeping your heavy-duty truck running at its peak performance is proper maintenance. One of the essentials for ensuring the longevity of your truck is regular oil changes and fluid checks.
