If your vehicle weighs over 10,000 pounds, you are required by law to obtain a DOT inspection report on an annual basis. DOT inspections can be done at Kuntz Truck Repair LLC. These inspections include checks for documentation, vehicle functionality, load safety, trailer functionality, and more. Here at Kuntz Truck Repair, we’ve saved customers countless hours of waiting around at their local DOT for inspection by doing the inspection ourselves. We understand that every second you spend off the road is a second your losing money. We pride ourselves on our quick, efficient, and effective services.
Not only do our inspections keep you compliant with the DOT, but they’ll also offer insight into where preventative maintenance needs to be undertaken. Proactively maintaining areas of concern will save you a ton of money, and keep you on the road for much longer than a reactive approach.
