Your rigs' stopped and you're wondering … do I have to have this thing towed or can I get it fixed here? I hate to pay to get this thing towed. It's large, full of stuff and I need it to move again as soon as possible.
You do have an option. A mobile repair service.
There are companies all across America that specialize in mobile repair. Their main customers are truck drivers who, when breaking down on the road, will first call a mobile repair service to try and fix the problem first. Good mobile repair services can take care of most problems a trucker might face on the road. From engine and transmission problems to tires to welding, it's a lot less expensive to fix a semi on the side of the road when possible than calling another tractor to take the trailer and calling a tow for a broken tractor. And the driver gets back to hauling stuff for money much more quickly.
But roadside repair services can be used for much more than stubborn semis. Motor home and RV drivers can also benefit greatly from mobile repair services. These licensed mechanics can usually take care of most any problem you might have while on the road. From a broken wheel bearing to electrical problems, you can in all probability get going quickly after making a call.
Heavy equipment operators also benefit from mobile repair services. When your bulldozer won't wake up from a nap or your crane refuses to take flight, it might be tough to get the piece to a garage. Mobile mechanics can make a site call and get you back to working constructively.
Even car owners can benefit. Although cars are easier and generally cheaper to tow to a shop, it is still ain't cheap. If you've lost a belt or something else you think might be simple, call a mobile mechanic first. They can get you back to business faster, often cheaper and definitely without the potential damage a tow can cause.
