Brake Repair

The brakes on any vehicle are important. While most drivers are concerned about speed and fuel efficiency, it is the brake that provides the most crucial aspect of driving; control. But while braking is always important for any driver, it takes on a whole new level of critical safety for professional logistics. When you’re hauling literal tons of freight, the vehicle and trailer brakes take on a new level of importance. The power and force of a truck traveling at high speeds require a tremendous amount of power and precision. Brakes are designed to be durable and reliable, but they aren’t indestructible.

We are here to make sure that the intensive, high-level demands of professional logistic truck drivers are met. In many cases, it’s not just the truck itself that relies on high-performance braking systems, but even the trailer. We can handle these needs and are even able to look at less commercial needs, such as people with recreational vehicles that also want the peace of mind to know that these bigger vehicles will respond to braking when they need to. So whether you’re a manager of a fleet of vehicles, or just someone getting ready to travel the country in the summer with an RV, we have the team, the tools, and the respect for our customer’s needs that you’re looking for.

At JW, we diagnose and repair all air and hydraulic brake systems on trucks, trailers, and motorhomes. We also diagnose and repair all ABS systems on your truck and trailer, including, but not limited to:

  • Brake adjustments
  • Check for wear on drums, and or rotors and linings
  • Check maxipot, and or air chambers for air leaks and condition
  • Check S-cams bushing and spring condition
  • Check for wheel seal leaks
  • Check amount and condition of hub oil

As any caring truck owner will tell you, keeping a truck maintained and serviced is just as important as keeping it clean and presentable on the outside. This is especially crucial when it comes to the braking system of a large semi-truck.
