Heavy trucking repair search engine TruckingSE.com has launched, and the company says the new site reimagines how truckers find reliable repair services.
The mobile-responsive website matches a broken-down tractor/trailer operator to the nearest and most appropriate repair shop — based on the situation, brand and capacity of the shop. The cloud-based solution is free to trucking companies, fleet managers and owner-operators. Repair shops and roadside assistance vendors may update and customize data on the site at no charge while sponsored listings are available.
“We know that roadside breakdowns are inevitable and occur about every 10,000 miles, whether you’re driving a brand-new rig or an older model,” says Trucking SE Founder Matt Muller, an eight-year veteran of the heavy trucking industry. “What we don’t know is when or where it will happen, but Trucking SE is available to help solve the problem quickly and get you back on the road.”
When a truck breaks down, a driver or team member can quickly find nearby, qualified heavy-duty truck service providers using interactive maps that highlight location and price, as well as detailed service center information, including:
- Name and address
- Capacity and number of bays
- Brands serviced
- Hourly rate
- Click-to-call phone number
Companies that offer repair services for tractors/trailers, tire services or towing can list on the website. To date, the site features more than 14,000 repair shops nationwide that service Class 6-8 vehicles, and more than 9,000 already list current repair rates and capacity.
With Trucking SE, truckers no longer have to call multiple repair shops or perform tedious web searches to find the most expedient way to service their rigs. Using Trucking SE, a driver or fleet manager can evaluate which shop will most efficiently service the truck, shorten downtime and ultimately save time and money, the company says.
“We offer a transparent way to enable repair companies and truckers to communicate by removing the friction that currently troubles these situations,” says Muller. “Time spent off the road and waiting for a mechanic is money lost.”
Owner-operators and fleet managers can visit the site to learn more. Repair facilities and providers of roadside assistance can view, create or update listings on the site and also explore sponsorship opportunities.
