The Process

During its rental life, U-Haul trucks are regularly maintained. While DOT requirements are not mandatory for U-Haul’s rental fleet, U-Haul’s maintenance and inspection program voluntarily exceeds DOT Requirements.

How We Regulate the Program

U-Haul uses a pre-inspection program to ensure appropriate system diagnostics and appropriate inspections are performed for each truck in a timely manner. When minor repairs are needed and the repair does not warrant introduction the truck into the entire repair process, a Level 1 inspection is performed and the truck is repaired. Level 2 and Level 3 inspections are diagnostic maintenance inspections and ar completed by professional U-Haul Team Mechanics. Level 2 and Level 3 inspections are performed through regularly scheduled intervals to ensure appropriate vehicle maintenance.

The Process

During its rental life, a U-Haul truck must undergo a detailed preventive maintenance (PM) service at 5,000 mile intervals. We have also implemented 15,000 and 30,000 mile PM service while continuing with the 5,000 servicing, to further ensure your safety.

How We Regulate the Program

U-Haul uses a pre-inspection program to ensure appropriate system diagnostics and appropriate inspections are performed for each truck in a timely manner. When minor repairs are needed and the repair does not warrant introduction the truck into the entire repair process, a Level 1 inspection is performed and the truck is repaired.
