While there are plenty of conversations to be had about service needs and even charging infrastructure, for truck service locations the first conversation should be about safety. Shops branching into electric truck repair should have at least one designated bay for electric vehicle repair. This bay doesn’t need to be exclusively used for electric truck work—just make it so that when an electric truck comes in for repair, that bay is always where it goes. Shops will also want to gear up technicians with personal protective equipment for shock and arc flash protection.
