Wheel and Axle Alignment
Improper wheel alignment significantly shortens tire life and increases fuel consumption. It takes just a tenth of an inch to have a big impact on your cost. A total wheel alignment reduces tire wear, reduces component wear, improves handling, minimizes rolling resistance, and more! Visit a Transwest truck service center for your frontend alignment, two-axle alignment, three-axle alignment, and more.
Diesel Emissions Test
Our service centers are certified diesel emissions testing facilities with the ability to test light-duty vehicles, medium-duty vehicles, and heavy-duty vehicles for emissions. If you're unsure if a diesel emissions test is required in your area, please contact your local county motor vehicle office.
Transwest knows how important the DOT inspections we provide are, as they keep you in compliance with key safety regulations. The Department of Transportation Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration requires all commercial vehicles to undergo annual DOT inspections. During evaluations, our staff will look thoroughly at all parts and accessories to ensure that they are in proper working condition.
The primary reason for running an overhead adjustment is to prevent gradual degradation of the engine performance and, in extreme cases, to prevent significant engine damage. Accurate adjustment of the overhead clearances is imperative for obtaining optimal engine performance and fuel economy. Most engines require an initial overhead between 50,000 and 100,000 miles depending on the engine manufacturer.
Transwest is happy to offer VIN verifications. A VIN verification is a physical inspection of the vehicle to verify that the vehicle identification number on the vehicle matches the vehicle's registration documentation. VIN Verifications are performed for titling and registration.
