BEWARE: Intertruck urge fleet action

As winter approaches, Intertruck are advising workshops and fleet decision-makers to be as ready as possible with a new essentials checklist.

The Birmingham-based company are warning against vehicle downtime and the resulting complications as a result of winter-related component failure.

Their checklist, specifically designed to ensure vehicles are able to survive the winter months, recommends the following areas should be checked regularly:

–     Antifreeze levels
–     Radiator condition
–     All filters
–     Lights, lenses and bulbs
–     Battery condition
–     Wiper blades and washers
–     Spray suppression
–     Air dryer cartridge
–     Brake adjusters
–     Brake chambers and spring brakes
–     Turbo condition
–     Mirrors

Ed Pedder, General Manager of Major Accounts at Intertruck, said: “Costs continue to rise and many fleets are being placed under increasing pressure to be as efficient as possible.

“The winter months present a very specific problem and it is paramount that vehicles perform reliably whatever the weather.

“Intertruck is committed to providing the commercial vehicle operator with a comprehensive, all-makes range of OE quality components.

“In partnership with famous brand names and backed by a nationwide network of 30+ branches, each holding comprehensive stocks and offering fast efficient service, we are confident we can fulfil all parts requirements this winter.”
