Trailer Mechanic

XTRA Lease is the leader in the truck-trailer rental industry in North America. We’re not truckers, but we’re proud to support the transportation industry. For more than 50 years, our team has focused on providing “the box” to trucking companies that supply manufacturing plants, grocery stores, and distribution centers with the products used in daily life. And as a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway, we have the financial backing to support our customers, and give our employees a level of stability that’s hard to beat.

What makes our Trailer Mechanic position unique?

  • Guaranteed 40 hour Monday-Friday schedule
  • Competitive Benefits package including medical, dental, vision, life, disability, and 401k retirement savings with company match
  • State of the art equipment; newest fleet in the market
  • Smaller shop with lots of autonomy

As a Trailer Mechanic, your typical day would include:

  • Diagnosing, servicing, and repairing all XTRA Lease equipment as indicated on repair orders and consistent with XTRA Lease repair standards.
  • Performing safety and legally required inspections (FHWA/BIT).
  • Maintaining parts and yard organization (with direction from operations management) to ensure a clean and safe working environment.
  • At the direction of the Branch Operations Manager, provide excellent service which meets and/or exceeds customer’s expectations regarding quality and consistency of service provided.

Job Requirements

  • High School Diploma (or GED Equivalent) Preferred
  • In accordance with the FMCSA Inspector Qualification Requirements, knowledge of the inspection standards of Part 393 and Appendix G, and the ability to identify defective components; and have knowledge and proficiency in methods, procedures, and tools.
  • At least 12 months’ trailer repair experience to complete FHWA inspections and brake related repairs; or specialized training via an apprenticeship and/or trade school (exception may be made for branches with more than one mechanic)
  • Must possess own tools in accordance with XTRA Lease’s tool sheet
  • Must possess current/legal driver’s license

As a Trailer Mechanic, you’ll need one year of trailer repair experience to complete FHWA inspections consistent with the Department of Transportation requirements. The people who succeed as Trailer Mechanics have knowledge of air, electronic, braking, and suspension systems as well as general knowledge of mechanical operation and body repair.

XTRA Lease mechanics work in a small team environment with lots of independence. They inspect and repair only semi-trailers: dry vans, refrigerated vans, and flatbeds- no prior diesel technician experience required. XTRA provides uniforms and PPE, but your workspace and tools are yours to manage. With no shop foreman, you'll partner closely with your Operations Manager to manage your training and workload. Once you've mastered our repair standards, you'll enjoy a more independent work environment with your team ready to help whenever you need them.
