While there are many factors that play into the life of the economy, truck drivers are the heart and soul which keeps the blood pumping. According to the American Trucking Association, there are 3.5 million commercial truck drivers in the United States. Each and every day thousands of truck drivers are on the roads delivering the products we use, the food that we consume and the materials corporations utilize to build our infrastructures.
Of course, like anything else, trucks need maintenance. Somewhere every day there is a truck breaking down on the road and more often than not, with slim to no options available.
Hi, my name is Costas Themistocleous, and I am the founder and CEO of TruckER. I have been working in the commercial trucking industry for the last decade, moving freight, automobiles and commodities for consumers and corporations all throughout the United States and Canada. When a driver breaks down, it is not usually an easy task finding them service to get them back up and running. I think we can all relate to the frustrations of spending precious time searching the web and inaccurate directory services looking for the right service vendor at a reasonable cost.
TruckER is designed to help drivers find service fast and easy with the click of a button. Minimizing downtime and time consumed spent searching for an expert, willing and licensed service vendor to come and repair your rig.
Simply choose the breakdown category, answer a few simple questions, upload photos of the incident and hit “Find Service Now”
TruckER then utilizes advanced GPS technology to quickly pinpoint your exact breakdown location and instantly pings the 5 nearest service vendors who cater to your specific breakdown needs, displaying rates, ETA and availability. TruckER allows users to submit their breakdown into a 90 second auction style bidding system, allowing vendors to compete on your breakdown service, which can save you time and money. Upon accepting a vendors ETA and quote, a service ticket is generated and a chat window opens between you and the vendor, allowing further information and detail to be discussed. When service is completed, vendors can upload the invoice directly through TruckER, and both user and vendor can rate their experience with one another.
Truck drivers keep our world in motion and without them, we’d be a lot less connected. We here at TruckER understand and appreciate the importance of commercial truck drivers and what they do for our everyday lives. Our mission here is simple.. That is to keep you up and running with minimal downtime and cost effective service solutions provided by expert, willing and genuine service vendors.
TruckER will be available through Apple’s App Store on iOS devices, the Google Play Store on Android devices and through the World Wide Web. When your truck goes down and you need service fast, TruckER is here to assist 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Q:What camera do you use?
A: I use the Go Pro Hero 6 Black Edition
Q: Why don’t you have a rotator?
A: Simply said, our wide open desert highways here in Indio do not require a rotator. Most scenarios allow us to drive the truck right down to the wreckage and perform our recovery without taking up any more lane than a rotator would. Another simple reason is price. They are very expensive trucks that, once again aren’t really needed here. With that being said, that doesn’t mean we will never get one just not at the moment.
