Heavy Vehicle Mechanical Service

Owning a heavy vehicle fleet can be a huge investment that you want to get the most out of.

Servicing hassles exist. Imagine you're a business owner who needs to get your heavy vehicles serviced but doesn't have the time or manpower to do it yourself. You're under pressure to keep your vehicles up and running so you can continue to deliver results for your clients, but finding the time to take them in for a service is difficult.

Machinery downtime can be costly and frustrating. Mechanical issues can often disrupt your operations and cost you money. You can't afford to have your machines off the road for extended periods for servicing and repairs. There's just too much downtime!

A single breakdown can cost hours—or even days—of lost productivity and revenue. Not to mention the added costs of hiring a replacement vehicle or contracting out the work. Machinery regularly breaks down, which can cause massive disruptions to production.

VPHC can make all of those worries go away!

We offer a comprehensive heavy vehicle mechanical service that will keep your fleet running smoothly, no matter what the job throws at them.

Getting Your Machines Up & Running Again Quicker

A single breakdown can cost a business thousands of dollars in lost production and repairs. Not to mention the time wasted getting the machine back up and running.
