Service & Repair
The main difference with an armored vehicle and a traditional vehicle is the increased weight it carries. Therefore service intervals are more frequent and more extensive.
The service requirement during and after the vehicle’s warranty period is according to general business terms and conditions and is based on the four following categories:
1. Routine service and/or repair of armored cars in customers’ own workshops using the main Service Manual and Supplementary User Manual. Necessary spare parts and service information should be ordered by TRASCO and/or by authorized car distributors in the customer’s region.
2. Standard service and/or repair of armored cars in the workshops of our local service partners. Their personnel have been trained by TRASCO technicians and have sufficient technical information and work descriptions.
3. Service and/or repair of armored vehicles by order of a TRASCO–Flying Doctor (trained mechanics, electricians, armored vehicle body specialists) who are capable of undertaking more detailed work, either at an Authorized Service center or at the customer's premises using their own equipment and materials. Our trained and highly competent technicians are able to perform customer service, repairs and trouble-shooting at the customer’s site or at one of our service centers.
4. If major repairs are required, the TRASCO manufacturing plant can provide the full range of service, repair and/or refurbishment of all types of vehicles.
To preserve the warranty, work that requires replacement or repair of armored plates should be carried out in accordance with category 3 or 4 exclusively.
Most TRASCO armored vehicles have an exclusive design, features and special parts lists. We deliver our customers the spare parts and kits which are not included in the standard original equipment program of the manufacturer:

- Upgraded suspension and power train components (torsions, wheel bearings, stabilizers).

- Redesigned and reinforced rims, Run flat inserts or PAX tire systems for summer or winter
