International has a long history of selling heavy-duty trucks. They're designed to haul heavy loads and tow even heavier trailers. Although International has seen great success over the years, their trucks are still infamous for being unreliable unless strict maintenance schedules are followed. Some heavy-duty trucks on the market can push maintenance deadlines, but International trucks don’t have that luxury. With that being said, Absolute Repair is fully prepared to offer you a full suite of International maintenance and repair services.Contact Us
