The Cost of Truck Breakdowns

A breakdown can have far-reaching consequences, impacting not only your schedule but also your bottom line. Here’s a glimpse of what can go wrong:

  1. Delays: A breakdown can result in shipment delays, affecting customer satisfaction and contractual obligations.
  2. Repair Costs: Emergency repairs can be costly, especially when compared to routine maintenance.
  3. Downtime: The longer your truck is off the road, the more revenue you lose.
  4. Safety Concerns: Breakdowns can occur in hazardous locations, posing safety risks for your drivers and others on the road.

Preventative Maintenance

While DHT can come to your rescue in case of a breakdown, we also emphasise the importance of preventative maintenance. Regular servicing and inspections can identify issues before they escalate into costly breakdowns. This proactive approach can save you time, money, and stress in the long run.
