SpeedCo

I realize there is another discussion concerning the cost of a SpeedCo oil/filter change and grease job. My intent is to notify all that you can no longer observe from the pit.. New ownership (Bridgestone/Firestone) will not allow it! Guess it's back to doing it myself just so I'll have an idea what's going on down under.
The service was done this morning for $202 (I had all the filters) at the San Antonio facility. Further, they advised that no tire work could be done - not even new tires on MH's.

Interesting.

Never been to Speedco but from what everything I've read this was one of the things people spoke highly of. The ability to go under and inspect your rig and their work was a big selling point.

The Speedco that I use has never allowed a customer in the pit!

I can't believe an insurance company would allow customers to be anywhere near the pit or service area.

I have not been in the pit, but have observed from the side of the MH. In fact, they request that the torquing of the drain plug is witnesses by the customer. This is true for MH and Gennie services

Well like they say, "good things never last". Liability issues ruin so many things.

I was just in the pit a few days ago for the first time at Bull Dog Trucking in Labonon MO. Very enlightening!

The purchase of Speedco is recent... therefore the "new" rules are VERY recent...
