Why Should I Get a Truck Pre-Purchase Inspection?

Whether you are expanding your business fleet, want to buy a truck, or need to buy new equipment or parts, United Fleet Management will assess their condition and suitability for your company. 

Identifies Potential Truck Issues

The primary benefit is to check that the truck is mechanically and structurally safe. Hidden problems aren’t obvious during a standard road test drive or visual check. 

Cost Savings

When you find an issue early on, you can save a significant amount of money in the long run. It’s costly to repair major faults after buying a truck and a thorough check can help you avoid these unexpected expenses. 

Negotiation Leverage

Knowing the truck’s condition in detail provides leverage in price negotiations. If vehicle inspection shows issues on any system, you can negotiate a lower price or ask the seller to make truck repairs before purchase. 

Safety Truck Assurance

Truck safety is important, so you need to pay close attention. It’s the reason you pass DOT and BIT inspections on your fleet. Our expert inspectors meticulously check safety features, such as engine, brakes, tires, lights, and structural integrity, to guarantee that your assets are safe for operation.

Peace of Mind

Buying commercial vehicles, including large or commercial ones, is a significant investment. When you inspect the vehicle, you know that you’re making a wise investment and not buying a vehicle with hidden problems. 

Long-Term Reliability

When you know the condition of the vehicle you are buying, you can predict its long-term reliability and maintenance needs. Your company can make solid plans and project in the future accurate estimates about uptime, reliability, and efficiency. 

Insurance and Warranty Advantages

Some insurers may offer better terms for vehicles that have undergone a thorough vehicle check. 

Optimizing Performance

This includes evaluating factors such as fuel efficiency, power output, and overall performance which should align with your business needs and operational requirements.

Maintenance History

We review the truck’s maintenance history of the assets you plan to acquire, looking for regular servicing and repair records. A truck that was properly maintained in the past is safer and more reliable.

Short Notice, they took my trailer the same day and said they would be able to look at it in a week. Joseue called me a couple days later and told me he did. He made sure everything worked to its potential and called me to get the trailer. It was a day before they said they would be able to look at it. It thought it was going to cost like $500 but it was only a couple hundred bucks. Great service and awesome value.

Got locked out of my car outside of Walmart. One of the guy that works for this company stopped to help us out and was able to unlock it less than 5 seconds. Didn’t get to ask for his name but shout out to him! Thanks again bro- Blue Mustang🚙

We travel full time for work and currently staying at an RV Park in Woodland. Our 5th wheel has had a couple of issues pop up and each time we’ve called they’ve been prompt on response, quick to come out, and professional. Their prices are also very reasonable. We will continue to recommend them!

I can’t recommend United Fleet Maintenance highly enough! These guys are wonderful, and I will be telling everyone I can about them! I was dead in the water so to speak, I just started living in my RV when my batteries stopped holding a charge. My fridge wasn’t working, no lights, etc. I called Camping World and they were trying to recommend people from the Bay Area. I knew I would rather have someone more local and when I called these guys and they said they worked on RVs I was so happy. Josue came out and figured out it was my controller and even suggested a work around for me until the part came in so I was actually able to get back up and running (with the work around) right away. Then he came back with the part and I am so very happy. This is what the service industry used to be, and with UFM it is again, people who are happy while they are there with you, have a smile on their face and really care about helping you. I think my problem was probably pretty small, I think Josue could fix almost anything and he loves what he does. I will use them again and recommend to everyone.

Reliable and honest mobile mechanic. Josue knows his stuff. From doing regular maintenance and DOT inspections to diagnostic repairs on my diesel trucks, dump trailers, wood chippers, stump grinders, and skid steers - Josue gets it done and backs all of his work. Nina breaks up my billing so I can track repair expenses for each piece of equipment. They are so easy to work with its unreal! Thank you Josue and Nina!

Professional and on time. In a world where trailer repairs are backed up for months, Josue fixed my heater when I needed it- conveniently at my house- so I could take my family camping. Payment thru Venmo and having the repair done while I was at work was so convenient for this working single mom. Thanks so much, you've earned my repeat business!
