Stay on the road longer with scheduled servicing


Here's why you need a regular genuine service

When it comes to servicing your truck, do you stick to your servicing schedule or service when you can?

For many owners, we know getting a service is a hindrance with the juggling of work schedule and potential loss of income. However, the long-term benefits of having regular services on your truck far outweighs the short-term perceived inconveniences.

We look at the ‘benefits’ of maintaining your service schedule and ‘why’ choosing a Hino Genuine Service matters.

Increased Longevity

It’s no secret trucks are put through their paces daily. Travelling on highways, through cities, and along dirt roads can put a lot of wear-and-tear on a truck. Maintaining your service intervals will guarantee that your Hino will deliver maximum reliability backed up by the security of Hino’s warranty, should it ever be needed.

Continued Safety

A regular service is like your regular check-up at the doctors. The health of your truck is not only essential to your business, but the safety of all road users. Hino technicians are factory trained using advanced diagnostic equipment that is specific to the brand, which allows them to actively test, monitor and diagnose any issues, sometimes before they even occur. 

Reducing costs in the long run

Every part of a machine is designed to work in harmony, and your truck is no different. Although there are a large number of aftermarket suppliers, buying non-genuine parts won’t give you the guarantee of quality.

By going Genuine, your truck not only is in the best hands in terms of knowledge and technology by the technician, but when the parts are fitted by an authorised Hino repairer, they also come with a 3 Years Warranty. Not to mention, using Hino Genuine Parts ensures you’re using the right part for the right conditions, the availability and range is greater, and performance is enhanced.

Reduced Downtime

Unexpected downtime in the transport industry isn’t just an inconvenience for you, but your clients and your business. With Hino’s Capped Price Servicing across the entire range, from Euro 5 onwards, it not only minimises downtime, but allows you to control your operating costs and budget ahead.

 'When' should you get a service?

There are many theories and advice on when you should service your truck. While a quick internet search will give you a kilometre range, we advise that you start by checking your warranty and service book, and then contact your local Hino dealer. You can also check out our Capped Price Service calculator which will work out how much a Hino Genuine Service will cost, so you can budget ahead.

All recently purchased Hino trucks come with 3 Years Warranty and 3 Years Hino Roadside Assist, however, we know that your truck is your livelihood, and that’s something worth protecting. Which is why we offer a 5 Years Extended Warranty and 5 Years Hino Roadside Assist for purchase on new Hino purchases. A little peace of mind goes a long way.

We understand how important your truck is to your business, and your livelihood. Maintaining scheduled servicing is a great way to ensure your truck remains on the road, and in great condition, longer.
