Deferred Maintenance is Deferred Profits
By Michael McClanahan / September 30, 2023

Fleet maintenance can be expensive and time consuming. But breakdowns and lack of trucks costs even more. Instead of making you money, idle trucks keep you from it. That’s why it’s important to keep up with scheduled maintenance. Basically, it’s a matter of pay now or pay later. And later is usually more expensive.

O.J. Watson Keeps You Rolling

There’s hardly ever a convenient time to have your trucks in the shop, but with a wel- planned maintenance schedule, you can avoid even more downtime and expense caused by on-the-job breakdowns. It costs a lot less to drive a truck in for maintenance than to have it hauled in. Takes less time, too.

Whether it’s driven or towed in, fleet managers know they can count on O.J. Watson Equipment Co. to turn around repairs and maintenance ASAP. We have the parts and supplies you need on the shelf in both our Denver and Greeley shops and the factory-trained mechanics to do the job right and on time.

Since we represent dozens of top brands, chances are we’ll have the OEM parts you need ready to install. On the rare occasions a part isn’t available, our expert designers and custom fabricators can probably make it for you.

We Service What We Sell…and Even Trucks We Don’t

O.J. Watson Equipment services the trucks we build, the equipment we sell, and even the trucks customers purchase elsewhere. Our commitment is to keep your work trucks performing at their best with minimal downtime.

With 20 mechanics in our Denver shop and 10 in Greeley, we support fleet owners and operators to back up their in-house service department whenever repairs are needed.

Don’t Defer; Demand the Best

Bottom line, we keep your trucks on the road, working for you, making you money. So as you start planning for the seasonal changes in work types, it’s a good opportunity to take a hard look at maintenance that may have been deferred due to heavy workloads, tight budgets, or labor and supply shortages.
