4 Things to Consider Before Hiring a Truck Repairman

Hiring the right truck repairman can be challenging if you have recently bought a new vehicle or changed your city. Keeping up with annual and time-to-time truck repairs perth is a crucial step for ensuring a long life for your vehicle. Making inspections and repairing your heavy-duty vehicle yourself is something you should steer clear of unless you are a professional mechanic.

A repairman needs to be held to high accountability because trucks are on the higher spectrum of expensive vehicles. A bad repairman can ruin a truck instead of repairing it.

Just like other vehicles and machines, trucks are vulnerable to wear and tear because of their heavy-duty use. Important decisions like routine maintenance and replacement of parts have to be taken care of by a good truck repairman.

Here are 4 factors to consider for hiring the right repairman for your truck.

Pricing

You may be tempted to go to the cheapest mechanic in your area to cut a few corners. But

when it comes to your vehicle, you must avoid repairmen with substandard priced services.

If a repair company or solo repairman does offer you a low price for the repair, ask your friends, acquaintances, or related people who may know the company or mechanic to confirm their credibility.

Going to the right place might be costly. This is why you should keep aside a monthly and yearly budget for services and fixtures. Hire people that are market competitive and credible, even if not very expensive, because price alone can also not help you assess the quality of work being provided.

Take quotations from different repairmen. The wider your choices, the better repair.

The reputation of the Repairman

Word of mouth holds great weight when it comes to selecting the right truck repairman.

Hear what your peers and friends have to say about them. In most cases, association through a person can help bargain prices and even additional services with a good mechanic. If someone you trust is recommending someone in particular to you, or even a repair company, do make a visit and discuss your expectations in depth. If you are new to the trucks, always get the best people because some repairmen take advantage of the naivety and exploit their clients on price or service.

The years of experience are also a determining factor, as well as updated knowledge on the latest technology as the automobile industry is constantly transforming.

Certifications and Reviews

Your mechanic and repairman should ideally be certified by any nationally or internationally recognized institution such as Automotive Service Excellence. These widely recognized organizations ensure that repairpersons, mechanics, and technicians have the credibility and sound expertise to perform well assessed and quality work on your asset, which is your truck.

In addition to certifications, it is also a good idea to check for the automobile repair company’s reviews online that will send you their employee. It will be even better if you can find reviews and ratings on the specific person that you are hiring.

Market reviews and Google My Business pages save customers from scams, bad quality service and establish what you can be expecting from such service companies within your area. Not only can you find a list of good repairmen and companies to hire, but you can also find out who to specifically avoid.

Warranties

A great way to avoid being scammed and also to cover up for the cost of unlikely and sudden damages is to ask a shop for their warranties when you are selecting a repairman for your truck.

In the best-case situation, you will be offered a full warranty, which would mean that the repairs that are being done will give you a certain amount of confidence of being covered for such damages even after repair.

However, warranties are valid under time limitations, conditions, and usually even mileage, which is why they should be obtained in writing from the service companies.

 

The risks of the motorist who comes to the garage with the spare parts he has purchased

I’ll explain. Once it happened that someone had a relative or a family friend who was a spare parts dealer, and for this reason he came to the workshop with the clutch or with the cutting kit in hand asking for it to be assembled .

But it rarely happened!

Now, thanks to the internet and hypermarkets, it happens more and more often that the customer shows up with the “sandwich brought from home”.

Question: “How much do you plan to save?” And is he also aware of the fact that there is no labor guarantee on the pieces he purchased ?

The motorist does not know that in the event of a clutch pressure plate breaking after 1,000 kilometers, he will have to pay all the labor necessary for disassembly and subsequent reassembly , also taking care of the die with his spare parts dealer to have the new part supplied under warranty.

Then there are those who ignore the specifications of lubricating oils and, as often happens, they buy an oil that is unsuitable for the type of engine (such as for many Ford and Volkswagen engines), telling you: “Ah the spare parts dealer told me it’s okay!”

Things like this also happen with drivers behind the wheel of fairly expensive cars. However, it is necessary to remind these people that the purchase of a 200 HP car involves exorbitant expenses not only on maintenance but also for RCA insurance, road tax and fuel.

when in reality on a Panda 1200 you spend a maximum of 350 euros including labor to do:

  • timing belt;
  • belt services;
  • 2 belt tensioners;

new paraflù and rear crankcase gasket.

And I don’t think it’s a blunder. Calculating that the equipment is not given to us mechanics, we also have the management costs of the premises, taxes and various disposals (different way of calling taxes).

We also have to pay for the disposal of used oil even if the new one is supplied by the customer!

It is funny to see a high target car owner show up in the workshop with the 4 liters of engine oil in the trunk and the commercial filter (equivalent to the original and not used as a primary system) to save 15/20 euros at the end.

The auto parts supply chain: where to turn to save money

Do you know where auto parts come from? Who produces them? How do they get to the spare parts counter or to the mechanic’s workshop?

In this article we clarify the auto parts supply chain, because knowing means knowing how to choose, being able to discuss on an equal footing with professionals in the sector and knowing what you are buying!

There are various types of parts manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, auto parts shops and mechanical workshops,

Do you know who can help you choose the best without a conflict of interest with respect to the proposal that makes you?

Manufacturer of original or original spare parts
By “original” spare parts we mean the components that car manufacturers install on new cars.

The original spare parts manufacturers are mechanical companies specialized on the single component. For example, Brembo only produces brakes, Bilstein or Kayaba only produce shock absorbers.

Usually, after a new car model is designed, a car manufacturer asks parts manufacturers to build the components that will be installed in the car, providing them with the design specifications and collaborating with them on the component design.

It is very important to know the OEMs , because in addition to the mechanical component installed on the new car, these companies also supply the car manufacturer with components that will be sold as ” original spare parts or OEM spare parts “, identical to those installed on the car left the factory.

Be careful because now comes the fun. To ensure free competition and therefore the reduction of the costs of auto parts, there is a European standard that allows OEMs (Brembo, Kayaba, Bilstein, etc) to sell the exact same components that the car manufacturer sells under its own brand. .

Let’s take an example:
If you have a Nissan Micra and a shock absorber breaks, you can buy the original Nissan shock absorber or you can know that your car’s shock absorbers have been manufactured by Kayaba and buy the exact same shock absorber at a lower price ” original ”with the Kayaba brand instead of Nissan.

You can therefore find on the shelf of your trusted spare parts dealer, two identical spare parts with different prices:

The original part, sold under the brand name of your car manufacturer The spare part of the OEM manufacturer with its own brand, but in all respects identical to the original one Of course the original manufacturer’s price will be lower than the “original” one, but I’m sure you know which one to choose ……

Independent spare parts manufacturer
In addition to OEM manufacturers, there are many other mechanical companies in competition with each other, interested in marketing a particular spare part.

The producers of independent spare parts depart from the original parts, thanks to experience and expertise, they will realize a similar one. Theoretically they would have to pay auto lawsuits to get all the information and specifications about the part they want to produce, but not all companies are willing to do so.
