TravelCenters of America LLC has launched TA Truck Service Certified Used Truck and Certified Used Trailer inspections that provide information to the used truck community on the condition of used trucks and trailers available for resale.
Complementing the inspection process, TA Truck Service developed a Certified Used Truck and Certified Used Trailer emblem that is displayed only on trucks or trailers that have passed both a DOT inspection and a series of additional tests on key operational components. The inspection results and the emblem provide both the reseller and the customer with an overall view of the health of the vehicle at the time the inspection was completed, according to an announcement.
“The maintenance history for a used truck or trailer is typically not available to a prospective buyer,” says Skip McGary, executive vice president commercial operations of TravelCenters. “The reseller may have no knowledge of the condition or health of the vehicle. We provide peace of mind to both the reseller and the buyer that an ASE Certified technician has inspected the vehicle. Plus, our technicians have the expertise to perform any repairs necessary to earn and display the Certified Used Truck or Trailer emblem.”
