KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Pilot Flying J Truck Care is providing free mid-trip inspections, a value of $50, at its Service Center locations now through June 7 to help professional drivers and trucking companies prepare for Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) International Roadcheck event on June 4-6.
Certain conditions apply, company officials said.
There is a limit of one visual inspection only complimentary inspection per truck during the promotional period. The inspection is available for booking at any Pilot Flying J Truck Care Service Center location or through Roadside Assistance mobile units.
Completion of visual inspection shall in no way guarantee a truck is CVSA-certified or otherwise free of CVSA violations.
Drivers will be notified of any issues or problems identified during the inspection, and corrective or maintenance services may be made available for an additional charge.
No purchase necessary for inspection. No cash value, rainchecks or substitutes are allowed.
In addition to participating in the mid-trip inspection, Pilot Flying J Truck Care recommends professional drivers take advantage of the below tips to help prepare for the upcoming CVSA Roadcheck and future travels:
- Check your vehicles and check them often. Pre-trip and post-trip inspections are imperative to find issues with the vehicle. Bad brakes or lights are easy to spot and easy to fix
- Keep up on preventative maintenance. Proper lubrication at set intervals prolongs the life of any moving parts
- Check tires for irregular wear. If a tire is not wearing evenly this could be a telltale sign of a steering and suspension issue
- Do not ignore noises. A lot of the time an issue in the steering system can be heard before it is seen. A whining steering box or a popping king pin or tie rod end can lead to something bigger if ignored
