Quality Tank Truck Replacement Parts
Working trucks have a lot of moving parts. They are tools, after all, which means that for you to get the job done, they have to perform at a high level every day. When moving parts wear out or get damaged, taking anything off the shelf is tempting . After all, it is an approved replacement. With limited repair budgets and pressure to get the unit back in service as soon as possible, this is the smart way, right? Wrong.
At White Tank & Truck Repair, we have found that in every replacement scenario, the decision of quality over price always favors quality. This article will examine why you should always opt for high-quality truck replacement parts when looking for upgrades or replacement parts, the major vendors we partner with, and tips for preventative maintenance.
The Dangers of Aftermarket Tank Truck Replacement Parts
Say your daily pumper unit loses its power take-off. You need a simple part and an afternoon of service to get it back into working condition. A typical repair shop will usually have a cheap option ready, since those parts are reverse-engineered without the input or supervision of the original manufacturer. However, this can be detrimental for several reasons.
Aftermarket products are built without the same safety procedures and fail tolerances that the original parts were subject to, meaning they are much more likely to fail again. There is also no guarantee the cheaper part will fit where it is supposed to, leading to delays.
The original manufacturer (OEM) adhered to standards of quality when the original part was made. This is why they were the first choice when the unit was built. A replacement part from an aftermarket company is usually made using cheap methods and materials. When their price seems way too good to be true, oftentimes, it is.
If the replacement part is a component of a larger system, you risk voiding its warranty if it is not an OEM part. If the replacement comes directly from the manufacturer, you maintain the warranty, which may include unit parts and reduce the overall cost.
No Warranties of Its Own
Frequently, it seems like cheap aftermarket parts are designed to break. When they do, one just like it is ready to go on the shelf. Replacing the same part three or four times defeats the purpose of choosing the cheaper option in the first place, especially if no parts warranty is offered.
What to Look for When Searching for Tank Truck Replacement Parts
- Compatibility: Make sure the replacement part is compatible with your specific make and model of the tank truck.
- Quality: Look for parts made from high-quality materials and manufactured to industry standards.
- Warranty: Check if the replacement part comes with a warranty and understand its terms and conditions.
- Availability: Check if the replacement part is readily available and can be shipped to your location in a reasonable time frame.
- Price: Compare prices of different replacement parts and make sure that you are getting a fair price for the quality of the part.
- Reputation: Research the manufacturer or supplier of the replacement part to make sure they have a good reputation for quality and reliability.
- Durability: Consider the expected lifespan of the replacement part and choose one that is durable enough to withstand the demands of your tank truck’s operation.
- Safety: Make sure the replacement part meets all relevant safety standards and regulations to avoid potential accidents or hazards.
