Tips for Semi-Truck Breakdowns

Tips for Semi-Truck Breakdowns

Safety is of the utmost importance when driving semi-trucks and other heavy-duty vehicles. When semi-truck breakdowns happen, you want to ensure your fleet can access fast support, including mobile fleet repairs. Whether it’s due to an accident, flat tire, transmission failure or something else, help keep your drivers safe (and others on the road) with these tips.

Maintain Maximum Visibility for Everyone on the Road

First, if your semi-truck breaks down on the side of the road, you must ensure all other drivers can see you and see you well! Roadside semi-truck breakdowns can be a huge liability. Other drivers want to get where they’re going without delay and may not be paying attention. That’s why it is crucial to ensure all passersby know your situation.

Turn the flashers on in your vehicle. Place reflective warning signs and pylons around the vehicle and trailer to create a safe space to inspect the breakdown. Road flares are another option if a driver ends up in a dark place with lightless roads.

Know Who to Call

When a driver in your fleet has a semi-truck breakdown, encounters an accident, ends up in a ditch, or needs support, make sure they know who to call for help. Team Pro-Tow offers 24/7 emergency service and incident response throughout Washington State. As a result, we can offer semi-truck repair, towing, recovery, and mobile fleet repairs for semi-truck breakdowns. In addition, we provide fleet services for any type of vehicle, including 24-hour emergency towing and repairs.

Safe Driving Prevents Accidents

Make your presence on the road known to other drivers. For example, you must always approach passenger cars from the left. As a result, drivers will see your incoming vehicle. Pass at a steady speed. Always make sure that you can see smaller vehicles in your rearview mirror. And, of course, maintain safe distances from other vehicles at all times to avoid getting into a problem where you and others are in danger or if your truck breaks down.

As a driver, ensuring you have enough space when making a wide turn is important. It is to your benefit to always be on the lookout when making wide turns. Semi-truck drivers require more space to make turns, sometimes needing to start in the left or middle lane. Always keeping this in mind will help you from getting into a situation where your truck breaks down, and you need help.

If you need roadside assistance, including mobile semi-truck repair, for your fleet, give Pro-Tow a call!

Trucking Industry Needs Support, Now More Than Ever

Trucking Industry Needs Support, Now More Than Ever

As the COVID-19 outbreak spreads across the United States, regular travel and transportation is restricted in many jurisdictions. The border is now closed to Canada, except for essential travel, including the transportation of goods. We might continue to see travel restrictions tighten as things progress, but for our truckers, they are working hard to maintain the transport of goods.

Pro-Tow 24-Hour Towing offers heavy-duty tow services and semi-truck accident recovery services in Washington State and beyond. We are watching this pandemic closely and understand the importance of our service to the transport industry. Trucking companies will be able to count on us when they are in need of heavy-duty towing or accident recovery as we navigate this unprecedented time.

How is COVID-19 impacting the trucking industry?

There is a demand for taking supplies to stores that have run out of items that are in high demand. These items include toilet paper, hand sanitizer, cleaning supplies, and essential food items. While warehouses have ample supply of these things, nervous shoppers are purchasing more than usual, and more than they need in many cases. A daily restock of shelves means more goods are required.

This has created an increase in products that need to be transported to grocery stores and warehouses throughout the country. Included in this demand, are vital medical supplies, safety equipment, and COVID-19 testing kits that need to be moved to other states.

Are truck drivers safe?

When speaking with the trucking companies that we work with closely, we are assured that drivers are following protocol regarding health and safety amidst this pandemic. Thankfully, most of their time is spent in total isolation on the road. Most truck stop services like restaurants and bars are now closed to prevent the spread of the virus. Transport companies and their employees are focused on good health practices when in contact with others, including keeping a safe distance, hand washing, and sanitization of equipment.

If there is an accident within our service area, trucking companies can depend on Pro-Tow 24 Hour Towing for assistance. We are still fully operational, offering heavy duty towing and accident recovery, including spill response, and are there to support transport companies and their drivers during this crisis. If your driver and fleet are in trouble on the road, we will be there to help, while taking all the health and safety precautions necessary to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
