VIS-Check Service Automation

When you're in our shop, ask for a VIS-Check. It's your best protection against efficiency robbing undercarriage failures. It can be performed on any Class 3-8 truck, trailer, or bus, and includes analysis of brake, steering & suspension components.

VIS-Check helps improve fuel economy, reduces the risk of roadside breakdowns, and increases overall saftey.

The VIS-Check in our shop can perform a complete undercarriage diagnostic in about 20 minutes. Schedule an appointment with us today.
