Ryder Offers Truck Repair On Demand


MISSISSAUGA, ON — Ryder Canada launched a new on-demand maintenance and repair service option for all private fleets and for-hire carriers, who can now opt for pay-as-you-go coverage of preventative maintenance and repair.

“New complex engine technologies and tightening emissions and safety regulations make it more challenging than ever to maintain a large fleet of vehicles,” said Jerry Brown, Ryder Canada VP and general manager, fleet management solutions.

So now carriers can pay Ryder a monthly fee to connect with Ryder’s technicians, tools and repair network, which has 40 locations and 400 technicians across the country. 

“Many fleet owners no longer have the capital or resources to hire and train qualified technicians and invest in maintenance infrastructure,” Brown said. “With Ryder On-Demand, fleet owners get consistent, professional service from a company with more than 80 years of experience in heavy, medium and light truck maintenance. Ryder On-Demand customers can access our maintenance network as needed, while benefiting from predetermined labour rates and part pricing on each service visit. This improves the predictability of their maintenance costs, which is an incredible value for large fleets.”

The folks at Ryder say their technicians are cross-trained in multiple disciplines, including the latest electronics, components, and warranty work and their maintenance facilities have the latest diagnostics technologies and computer-assisted scheduling based on vehicle types and driving habits.

In addition to maintenance and repair, customers have access to 24/7 roadside assistance, extended repair hours, and available replacement vehicles.
