Renovate a truck It is a very important step, because unlike cars, these vehicles are intended to carry out transportation tasks and are an important axis for the profitability of a company. Unlike cars, trucks travel more kilometers and are in operation for more hours, generating a need for renewal, being important to evaluate at the time of renewal if the current unit meets the needs or preferably we migrate to a model with greater capacity of load according to the need of the business.
Thus, the transfer of vehicles has shown an increase of 3.6% compared to the similar period of the previous year, according to a report made by the Automotive Association of Peru at the beginning of this year. In addition, it is considered that it will continue in positive territory towards the end of it.
We know that one of the biggest queries that truck fleet owners have is to know how and when is the best time to renew the vehicle. For this reason, Ricardo Arnaiz Figueroa, Manager of the Hino truck and bus division at Mitsui Automotive, provides recommendations to achieve this, taking into account the safety and efficiency that having a new heavy-duty vehicle can generate:

According to Mileage or hours of operation: It is important to take into account the mileage or hours of operation of the truck, because after a certain time of operation, the truck will begin to need corrective repairs, increasing the cost of operation, as well as corrective maintenance of the bodywork. In general, when the units reach a certain number of mileage, they begin to need expensive repairs, being advisable to renew them to maintain a low cost of operation and the profitability of the business.
