When your truck breaks down in the middle of nowhere it’s going to be the time to call in the services of a mobile diesel mechanic.
What does a mobile diesel mechanic do?
A mobile diesel technician is like a lone wolf in the vehicle mechanics world. We do our work with little staff support because our workshop is out of a mobile service truck. The fact that we don’t have the luxury of a full team workshop doesn’t mean to say we compromise on the standard of service and the quality of our parts.
We might call our mobile diesel mechanics “lone wolves”, but they have HQ’s full support. All they have to worry about are their tools and their emergency call outs. They aren’t buried in paperwork such as opening tickets and preparing estimates that is down to us at the office. Where possible we will price up parts while our mechanic is out there getting you back on the road. Our mobile motto is: close to our customer with full back office support.
Don’t breakdown if you breakdown
Sometimes the basics we overlook. If you are a lone trucker then check you have everything and that includes:
- Jumper cables if your battery dies in the middle of nowhere
- Reflectors so that other vehicles won’t have any hassle seeing you at night or even at dusk or dawn.
- Spare tyre. Make sure that it is ready to go if one of your existing tyres gives up the ghost.
- Phone charger. Make sure that this goes into your cubby before you set off. If you breakdown and can’t deal with the fault yourself then you will need phone charge to make that emergency call to us.
- Emergency contacts. Pump our number into your phone before you set off along with other important numbers like your insurer.
- Water. Keep a couple of litres handy at least. If you can keep these cool even better. It’s all very well having everything you need except water and when our mobile mechanic arrives he or she will need to call an ambulance. Keep a roadside safety kit that includes jumper cables, reflectors, basic tools, and an empty petrol can in your car. Also, be sure to keep a couple of litres of water in your boot, more if travelling long distances in unpopulated areas. Have a copy of emergency numbers for roadside assistance and insurance providers stored both in your mobile phone and somewhere in your car.
