As a truck driver there are many perks to being your own boss, like independence at work and making good money. In fact, many perks come with a truck driver’s schedule, not the least of which is a unique view of the country enroute to your destination.

To be profitable however, a driver’s number one priority is to get your load delivered to its destination on time. If you break down on the road it can be costly. Not to mention the inconvenience and the cost of the downtime. One can only imagine the high level of frustration these situations cause. 

Preventative maintenance is the key and it’s vital to ensure you don’t put off your truck maintenance. On occasion though, these inconveniences happen in a truck driver’s world. Big Rig has been called to the rescue many times when unforeseen situations occur that disrupt the delivery schedule. If it happens to you we’re here to help. Big Rig Towing & Recovery is available 24-7 to service all of your heavy duty towing and recovery requirements.

Keep this number on hand 1 (866) 398-7444. You just may be glad you did.

Be pro-active – ensure everything runs smoothly ahead of time – you’ll never regret it!

Your rig is your livelihood so it’s critical to keep it in perfect condition and operating at peak efficiency. A well-maintained and properly functioning rig can help to ensure your safety and the safety of the drivers around you as well as add years to the life of your rig.

It is an expensive piece of equipment so keeping it clean and running smoothly is not only a great responsibility that may take some time and maintenance, but more importantly it’s your best defense to avoid trouble while out on the road. After all, you don’t want to worry about forced downtime and loss of time and income.

Before a long haul it’s important that you take the time to check your oil, inspect your radiator and your brakes, top up your fluids, grease moving parts, check the fuel vent, check your tires and of course, ensure your load is secured.

Keeping the exterior clean can mean additional safety by cleaning your mirrors and cleaning your windows. By keeping it waxed and polished you add protection to your rig’s longevity.

Keeping the interior clean is exceptionally important especially if you’re “living” or spending long periods of time in it. It’s your home away from home and pride of ownership can make a difference to your comfort, your sleep, your quality of life and peace of mind.

In a precarious situation? Give us a shout

Big Rig Towing isn’t always called out to highway accidents where wreckage is strewn all over and a broken rig needs uprighting or towing. Sometimes it’s just a large piece of heavy equipment that has ended up in trouble.

You can never be too careful when using heavy machinery in unfamiliar or rugged terrain. This overturned steel loader took a tumble in an out-of-the-way location. Oftentimes the recovery is more about the logistics of lifting heavy machinery that has flipped over after an incident than about hooking it up. Using our 75-ton sliding rotator, and by attaching a heavy-duty sling to the equipment, with a few safety adjustments we solved the issue and got it back on its feet and back on the job.

Big Rig Towing can do more than just tow your distressed rig or your heavy equipment. We have a solid reputation for doing heavy lifting and moving. If you find yourself in a disabled or precarious situation give Big Rig Towing a shout. To reach us toll free, call 1 (866) 398-7444. We offer 24/7 dispatch service.
