Maintenance issues are the No. 1 reason many owner operators fail. It’s simple — when you’re not behind the wheel, you’re not making any money. That’s why having a preventative maintenance program is one of the most important things you can do to ensure your business success. Start your preventative maintenance program when you buy your truck and get to know every inch of it. This will help keep on the road.
