Federal DOT Inspection
Operating an individual commercial vehicle or a fleet of trucks grows more complex every day. The Department of Transportation (DOT) and its safety enforcement agency, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), take commercial vehicle safety very seriously. If you’re operating commercial trucks without the proper documentation of required annual federal DOT inspections, you’re skating on very thin ice. Fines are expensive, and getting caught without evidence that a qualified inspector has checked out your truck your truck can cost you thousands.
At HFI Truck Center, we specialize in services and repairs for Isuzu commercial trucks. These trucks are known for their reliability, but that’s not an excuse to avoid required annual DOT truck inspections. At HFI Truck Center, our expert mechanics are available to perform federal DOT inspections in New Jersey. Our mechanics are factory-trained and ASE-certified master truck technicians. They’ll go over your truck with care, noting any concerns. If there aren’t any issues, our truck techs can sign off on your annual inspection and provide you with the required documentation or sticker.
If the inspection turns up safety issues, we can resolve them. Your business depends on trucks that are safe to operate. Plus, the last thing you want is to have your truck be the vehicle that won’t budge in the middle of a narrow Manhattan street, in a tunnel, or on a bridge. It’s better to be safe than sorry! At HFI Truck Center, we provide the full range of Isuzu truck maintenance and repair services, including:
- Filters, fluids, oil changes, and lube
- Engine repairs
- Lift gate and overhead door repairs
- Computer and electrical diagnostics
- Belts and hoses
- Light replacement
According to the NorthAmerican Transportation Association, over 130,000 trucks are cited every year for being on the road without proof of the required DOT truck inspection. Running without documentation of the required federal truck inspection is second only to—you guessed it—being cited for an “inoperable required lamp” as one of the most common reasons for a citation. So whether your Isuzu truck is due for the full inspection or it’s been pulled over for a missing or burned-out required light, HFI Truck Center on Highway 22 in Mountainside, New Jersey, can get you back on the road safely.
