IMPORTANCE OF

ALIGNMENT

Poor wheel alignment increases tire heat & scrub which makes your engine work harder, Therefore, Your fuel and tire expenses increase dramatically!

INCREASED TIRE LIFE
For every 1mm (3/64 inch) of misalignment an average truck is dragged 5ft sideways per mile in a forward direction; this can dramatically increase heat in the tire & decreases the tire life up to 300% in severe cases, which makes a laser alignment from Mobalign a huge saving and a necessary part of your maintenance schedule.

IMPROVED FUEL ECONOMY
If tires are being dragged sideways due to misalignment, the increased load on your engine will dramatically affect your fuel consumption; many independent studies have proved that it is possible to save as much as 11% of fuel consumption by correct wheel & frame alignment.

DRIVER COMFORT
A correctly aligned vehicle will run true, the driver will not have to constantly correct the steering to keep driving straight, and this will reduce driver fatigue and lower the risk of shoulder, neck and back problems.

REDUCED CARBON FOOT PRINT
The carbon footprint is constantly being discussed around the world, with the increased pressure to reduce CO2 emissions and greenhouse gases. A properly aligned Truck and trailer will reduce fuel consumption and in turn have an immediate impact on in reducing the carbon footprint.

STEERING GEOMETRY

BFI RECYCLING

In 2003 Mobalign worked with BFI who were experiencing excessive front end tire wear on certain models of their fleet of garbage disposal vehicles. These vehicles are required to do tight turning in and out of tight areas all day.

BFI had previously had these vehicles aligned by another party and noticed little to no change of their aggressive front tire wear. Mobalign was called in for a second opinion by BFI and their tire supplier who was responsible for measuring tire wear, cost per KM/Mile.

Mobalign carried out their inspections checked the wheel alignment and came to the conclusion that the Steering arms had too much toe out on turn. Mobalign had a custom made steering kit made for one of the trucks, and monitored the progress.

WHAT CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING

ABOUT MOBALIGN

"Hello, my name is Greg and I'm the owner of G. TUTT TRANSPORT INC. in Chilliwack, BC.  We run 33 trucks throughout Canada and the U.S.A. with all different types of equipment, from Super B's to Tandems. Over the last 6 year, Mobalign has solved issues from kingpins to tire wear and handling issues.  Lee and his team at Mobalign not only fixed all of these concerns, they explained them.  In times like these, you want to be confident in all of the repairs made to your equipment. In all of my experience with Mobalign, the expense of the repair has, by far, been worth it in comparison to the cost of new tires and handling equipment. I would recommend Mobalign services to everyone.  It's not the money you spend, it's the money you will save!"
GREG TUTT | G TUTT TRANSPORT
"I had problems with the truck for three years, it always pulled to the right and the tire wear wasn't great. After having some suspension repairs done it pulled severely to the right. I took the truck into my local tire store with an alignment facility; they carried out a three axle alignment with their latest and greatest machine. After they had made some significant adjustments I was on the road again, and to my disappointment, the truck handled no different. Two weeks later I heard that there was a Mobalign alignment technician carrying out some work in town. After a brief conversation and an inspection on my truck, he suggested that he could fix it later that day once his work was done. He found several problems with my truck and carried out adjustments on all axles. The truck was a completely different truck once he had finished the work; it had never handled this good since I owned it. Thank you very much Mobalign. I would highly recommend your service and expertise to anyone who is serious about getting the job done right the first time."

"Columbia Fuels is like any well-run business, we look to save money so we can then pass that on to our customers. After reviewing some tire problems I called Mobalign Services to assist our company in rectifying some of our problems. Once aligning one of or Trucks and B trains there was an immediate response from the driver on how well the unit drove down the road without having to correct it all the time and keep it out the ditch. Mobalign clearly outlined the problems that were addressed and the "Cost vs Savings" based on our fuel mileage and tire savings,($6090 per year)after alignment costs. At this point, we decided that it made perfect sense to align our whole fleet. I would highly recommend Mobalign to anyone! Their service and knowledge was first class."
