Preventative Maintenance

Preventative maintenance is a planned schedule which consists of different services that need to be performed at certain periods of time in order to prevent failures and breakdowns. The main goal of preventative maintenance is to prevent the failure of equipment before it happens. It's designed to enhance and preserve the reliability of equipment by replacing worn components before they actually fail.

Some preventative maintenance services include, but are not limited to:

  • Oil changes
  • Partial or complete overhauls
  • Lubrication
  • Equipment checks and more.

Contemporary technological progress in tools and equipment for diagnosis and inspection also contributes to even more accurate equipment maintenance. The ideal preventative maintenance program would prevent all equipment failure before it happens.

There are a lot of misconceptions regarding preventative maintenance. One example is that preventative maintenance is very expensive. According to this misconception, factory scheduled maintenance will cost way more than waiting until something goes wrong with your vehicle. However, a lot of people forget the long-term savings and benefits associated with preventative maintenance. Without it, your vehicle runs the risk of unexpected breakdowns. These setbacks can not only be inconvenient but can also cost you more time and money to repair.

Some of the long-term benefits of our preventative maintenance services include:

  • Decreased cost of replacement
  • Better spares inventory management
  • Better system reliability
  • Decreased system downtime

When you come to our shop, our team of expert technicians and service advisors will explain everything you need to know about preventative maintenance. Let us take care of your vehicle. We won’t let you down!
