Standardized Labor Times

With TruckLabor at your fingertips, you can increase shop throughput and profits by delivering consistent and accurate commercial truck repair estimates to your customers. The commercial truck labor time estimator does more than estimate jobs, it also analyzes technician performance to help you identify where you need to improve. Once you better understand how well your shop is performing, you can take steps to increase velocity.


Find all makes and models of Class 4-8 trucks, covering model years 1990 to current in one convenient location, within a single application. No more manually searching multiple databases, so you can save time and increase productivity.

Estimator Tool

Enhance your customers’ experience with professionally formatted commercial truck repair estimates personalized with your customers’ information. The Estimator Tool also allows you to customize labor rates for different customer types or service operations. Every estimate you write will consistently align with your shop’s business goals and objectives, improving your bottom line in the process.

NEW! Vehicle Maintenance Reporting Standards (VMRS)

Labor estimating jobs map seamlessly to Vehicle Maintenance Reporting Standards (VMRS). In the Quotes Module in TruckSeries, VMRS codes display automatically, eliminating the complex process of manually looking up the appropriate VMRS code for work in progress. TruckSeries presents the appropriate VMRS standardized codes as the quote is generated. Any fleet or shop management system that is VMRS-compliant will recognize the work associated with the code and record the work accordingly.

With a detailed component repair history based on the VMRS coding system, the vehicle owner has a clear and consistent record of repairs and overall costs for each truck in operation and can better evaluate the lifecycle costs of their vehicles and make decisions that ultimately will reduce overall costs and minimize vehicle downtime. Labor estimates generated by TruckSeries include VMRS codes for work performed, giving fleets the information they need to make important decisions about their vehicles.  READ THE BLOG POST.
