Comprehensive Services for Light, Medium, and Heavy-Duty Trucks

Light-Duty Truck Inspection

Light-duty trucks are common on our roads, typically vehicles with a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of less than 10,000 pounds. As these vehicles are often used for work purposes, it's critical they are operated safely and efficiently. At Nate's Garage, we'll inspect all essential elements of your light-duty truck, including brakes, lights, steering, tires, and horn, ensuring your vehicle remains compliant and roadworthy.

Medium and Heavy-Duty Truck Inspection

DOT inspections are even more rigorous for medium-duty (GVWR between 10,001 and 26,000 pounds) and heavy-duty trucks (GVWR over 26,001 pounds). These vehicles often face heavy use and harsh operating conditions. At Nate's Garage, our experienced technicians will thoroughly inspect crucial systems like your engine, transmission, axles, fuel system, and all other essential elements.

Hands down the best collision center car repair in MN. Dropped off my truck for brakes, lift kit, transmission fluid change, oil/filter and cabin filter change and received my truck back like new inside and out.
