Machinery Protection

My father-in-law is the perfect example of someone who makes the most of his money through diligent machinery protection. His last vehicle, a 1991 Chevrolet truck, had well over 200,000 miles on it when he sold it in 2003, when it still ran fairly well. For ten years, he drove it all the way from Connecticut to New Jersey for work, a fairly rigorous drive considering how much stop-and-go traffic one hits along that path.

He got so much mileage out of that truck because he's a certified mechanic who enjoys working on cars. Every weekend, he spends anywhere from six to ten hours just fine tuning his engine, breaks, or anything else that requires repair. When he notices something minor that he doesn't have to right tools to fix, he brings his vehicle to a mechanic immediately.

This type of machinery protection saves him an enormous amount of money. Most people who keep their automobiles as long as he does eventually have to shell out thousands of dollars for repair work. Their cars have minor problems that develop into bigger ones.

Machinery Protection in Business

This type of machinery protection should be exercised by all businesses that require either cars or other major equipment. Machinery may seem like it runs on its own, but as engines rumble, parts become loose or worn. The small amount of work it requires to regularly check machines is often well worth the labor cost.
