The North Texas truck maintenance market is very competitive but highly fragmented, with no dominant local, regional or national service provider. Service providers include 1) dealers or distributors for original equipment manufacturers; which are principally engaged in the retail sale of trucks, equipment, parts and service, 2) independently owned and operated fixed-site garages, a few with an on-site mobile repair focus, and 3) single truck/van mobile repair entities.
In Dallas/Fort Worth, there are many fixed site repair facilities. In addition to in-shop repairs, many of these facilities provide mobile on-site repair and emergency roadside assistance. Providing these services is generally necessary to maintain and service their customer’s fleets. As such, most shops have a unit dedicated to providing these services. However, for most fixed site shops, the focus is on minor repairs and eliminating truck downtime until the truck is scheduled for in-shop maintenance and corrective repairs.
Despite the presence of well-established competitors, the owner feels that they have a demonstrated superior business model, 30-year highly experienced Operations Manager, franchisor support, excellent fixed facility and well-equipped mobile service vans.
