DOT Inspection in North Carolina, South Carolina & Georgia

Running a trucking business? At Southeast Fleet Services, we take government-mandated safety inspections seriously. That's why we offer federal DOT inspections, as well as HM-183 cargo tank inspections, across all five of our locations in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia.

Federal DOT Inspections at Southeast Fleet Services

Our team of mechanics are all certified by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) — that's federally DOT certified to you. We don't just stop at trucks, either. Trailers are a big focus of our inspections, ensuring your entire rig is ready to hit the road safely. Our DOT annual inspections cover all aspects of your truck and trailer’s health, ensuring it meets all federal safety regulations. This includes inspections of:

  • Brakes
  • Lighting Systems
  • Steering Components
  • Tires and Wheels
  • Vehicle Frames
  • And More!

HM-183 Cargo Tank Inspections

If you haul hazardous materials, you’ll need a special type of inspection. Our mechanics are continuously trained and certified for HM-183 cargo tank inspections, also known as HazMat inspections. These specialized inspections go beyond a standard DOT inspection, ensuring your cargo tank meets the rigorous safety standards set forth by the Department of Transportation (DOT) for transporting hazardous materials.

Customer Testimonials

"I have used Southeast fleet service for 20 years and They have always performed exceptional work."
- Michael

"My semi truck broke down yesterday in the afternoon in Salisbury, NC and i was lucky enough to find these guys to help me fix it. I had issues with electrical cable, and other harness issues. They took me in immediately, fixed it and i was on the road in less than an hour! They were professional and knew what they were doing. Next time I'm around Salisbury area and have issues with my truck i definitely know where to go! Thank you guys...and thank you Spencer!"


"Being the Director of Maintenance with Hilco Transport I can tell you that these guys do a very professional job from start to finish. We had a wrecked cargo tank that needed a good bit of work. Brian Brewer in the shop walked us through the repairs needed going over the tank, providing an estimate for the repairs and kept us informed througout the repair process. Once the tank was complete our in-house tank techs reviwed and were happily impressed. That being said, we have taken them additional work including a cargo tank refurb job. Check these guys out! You will not be let down!"


"Had a problem with the pump on one of trucks being locked up do to driver leaving product in it. Called Brain and he got me in that day and out the next!!! Thanks for getting me in and out as to not miss out on any loads."


"Called them up for airbag replacement on trailer & they took me right in not to say that they offered to help me get there if my air pressure didn’t build up. Great group of guy’s & professional on every level."
