The Importance of Pre-Trip Truck Inspections, Henrietta, New York

As hectic as the job can be, when you’re driving a commercial truck, the pre-trip inspection is something you should never skip. As DeCarolis Truck Rental in Rochester, NY, explains, not only are they important for the longevity of your vehicle, but truck inspections are also integral for your safety. Here, they explain why it’s important to have your truck inspected regularly.

truck inspectionThe most significant reason for a pre-trip truck inspection is because of safety.  Also, the Department of Transportation requires “systematic inspections.” Consistently checking in on the condition of your vehicle before a long trip ensures you'll be prepared to handle whatever you encounter.

Aside from being a requirement, pre-trip truck inspections also save you time and money. When done properly and thoroughly, they don’t take long. Investing a little time beforehand will help you avoid a variety of problems. For example, drivers who don't inspect their vehicle won’t notice items that are about to fail.  Tire or component failure on the road will put you temporarily out of business.

Just like any other vehicle, keeping your commercial truck in working order reduces the likelihood of an accident occurring. It’s important to find and fix potential issues before they can become full-blown problems.
