The TA Truck Service TechOn-SITE team will be turning wrenches in the lot again this year at the Great American Trucking Show in Dallas, Texas from Aug. 22 through 24. While you enjoy the show, our technicians can complete repairs and services on your rig, right in the lot! All you have to do is visit the TA and Petro shower tent in the truck parking community to sign up for your services before you head into the show hall.  

To get a glimpse of how our technicians can help you get the most out of your GATS experience, here are our top five TechOn-SITE services from GATS history.

1) Tire Replacements and Repairs

Not only do we offer special GATS pricing on Roadmaster Tires and Goodyear retread tires, we can install your new set right in the TA Petro Truck Parking Community while you’re enjoying the show. Our ASE and TIA certified technicians can also perform tire repairs, so when you’re ready to roll at the end of the weekend, your tires are too.

2) Shock Installations

Need new shock absorbers to go with your new set of tires? Get your shocks inside the show hall and then bring them back to the lot where our TechOn-SITE team can install them for you.

3) DOT Inspections 

All commercial vehicles require a DOT inspection once a year to ensure their parts and accessories are safe to operate and in good working condition. Whether you’re due for your annual DOT or want to make sure you’re prepared for CVSA’s upcoming Brake Safety Week, our technicians can take care of that for you, too!

4) Electrical Systems Testing and Battery Replacements

Trucks frequently end up out-of-service because of starting and charging system-related issues. Our technicians can complete electrical systems tests, change alternators and starters, and replace deficient batteries right in the lot, so you can leave the show charged up and equipped to handle the road ahead in more ways than one.  

5) Light Repairs

Lighting devices are essential to the safe operation of any commercial vehicle, but they still account for almost 30 percent of all CSA violations. Get any damaged headlamps or other malfunctioning lighting devices repaired by our expert technicians right in the lot.

These five services round out the top TechOn-SITE services offered throughout GATS history, but that’s not all we’re offering this year. Our show services also include:

  • Computer diagnostics and fault code troubleshooting
  • Air system repairs
  • Mud flaps
  • General repairs
  • Tractor and trailer lubrication 
  • Air conditioning repairs
  • Certified used truck inspections

After you’ve signed up for your TechOn-SITE services in the lot, don’t forget to visit the rest of the TA, Petro and TA Express team inside the show hall at booth #1618 to learn more about our full-service offerings.
