Roll into Michigan Truck & Equipment to Prepare for Winter

Fall is here, and that means we're heading for the winter season, and we know what that means. That means temperatures are dropping. We're already feeling the cooler temps here in Grand Rapids, per the monthly temperature calendar, found on The Weather Channel.

The best way to prepare your construction and trucking equipment is to visit us at Michigan Truck & Equipment (MTE) and let our expert service team get your equipment ready to roll through the winter months. As we mentioned last year, here are some winterizing services that are vital to keeping your truck or fleet on the move.

Keep Up with the Weather to Plan for Safe Travels

As ATBS states, "weather is arguable one of the most important factors affecting your driving routes, so it's important to have the most up-to-date forecast at your fingertips." It's easier than ever to know what's coming your way or what you're heading towards these days with smartphone technology. ATBS gives you five mobile apps that you can see which one is best for you. Each has a link, marked "Download," that will take you to the site to select the app for your mobile phone.

Here is another informative reference to help you stay up-to-date on our country's weather. As of October 17, 2019, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) gave their Winter 2019/2020 prediction.
