• What does TRAC Interstar do? What services are available?
    • TRAC Interstar provides Road Service for commercial trucking fleets and owner operators. TRAC Interstar, which has been in business for nearly 30 years, got its start in the intermodal industry and began adding commercial service through the years. Intermodal and commercial road service is handled by our 24/7 call center staffed with experienced repair coordinators. Tire, mechanical and towing road service is provided in the United States, Canada, and Mexico.
  • Why should I call TRAC Interstar when there are websites with free listings of vendors?
    • If you use a website to locate truck repair services as part of your road service operation, there are a few things you should consider. Many of the listing websites are in business to sell advertising space to repair shops–they are not in the business of providing the most comprehensive and thorough directory.You may also realize that you’re paying higher, walk-in rates when you call vendors that are not part of a managed network. With TRAC Interstar, we provide high volumes of repairs to many of our vendors and they provide Interstar with lower, negotiated rates which we can pass on to our customers.
  • My company has their own breakdown call center. Why should we call TRAC Interstar?
    • If your fleet has a breakdown group, you’re familiar with the high costs of staffing and operating a 3-shift call center. Your core business is transportation and TRAC Interstar’s is managing emergency road service. We have had many fleets save costs and achieve maintenance goals by allowing TRAC Interstar to manage their equipment maintenance instead of keeping it in-house.We encourage you to explore giving TRAC Interstar the opportunity to manage your tire, mechanical and towing incidents. We recommend fleets begin by allowing us to manage 2nd and 3rd shift breakdowns. We’re confident you’ll want to take advantage of having TRAC Interstar manage your entire road service operation!

  • What are the major differences between TRAC Interstar and other fleet breakdown companies?
    • TRAC Interstar has been offering road service solutions in the trucking industry for nearly 30 years. Our customers call us because we get their equipment back on the road quickly and at a fair price. Our experienced repair coordinators, managed vendor network, advanced breakdown systems, and custom fleet solutions allow us to enjoy success.Other fleet breakdown companies require contracts with monthly fees and per occurrence dispatch fees. There are no contracts or service agreements with TRAC Interstar and our repair management fee is competitive.In addition, other breakdown companies don’t advertise that they may hold back upwards of 10% of a vendor’s invoice. Do you think a vendor is likely to provide their most competitive rates if they know they are going to be paid a reduced portion of their invoice? TRAC Interstar provides rates up front for tire and mechanical service.
