Every owner operator should know that maintaining your truck is vital to your business. Recent events have put a damper on the parts supplies and finding parts, even for routine maintenance, can be challenging at times.

If you are fortunate enough to have the funds available, when you do find some routine parts that you will need, it might be a good idea to get a few extra. Do not hoard parts. Hoarding only adds to the scarcity of supplies, but it wouldn’t hurt to have a couple extra filters, extra belts, etc. Even if you regularly get a shop to perform your routine maintenance, if they are unable to acquire the parts, you could supply your own and save precious downtime.

Oil filters and air filters are a big must along with a spare fan belt....if your van/truck takes a special oil filter wrench buy one if possible.
