Semi-truck breakdowns are not uncommon. They’re mainly caused by various reasons, such as a faulty battery or air leaks. If your semi-truck breaks down, don’t panic. Instead, hit your flashers to let other drivers know they need to make some maneuvers once they are close to your location. Then, calmly get off the road and try to diagnose your vehicle’s problem.

If fixing the issue proves difficult, don’t stress over it – let Heavy Equipment Transport help you out. We’re available to transport your semi truck to the nearest auto repair shop within the shortest time possible. We’ve handled many similar situations before, so you don’t have to worry about our competence or experience.
