OSHA Certified for Oil and Fuel Spill Cleanup

Welcome to

Mid Carolina Diesel

The general public has very little knowledge about what goes into keeping the groceries, clothing, furniture, and other items they need readily available for purchase. Here at Mid Carolina Diesel, we completely understand the importance of our nation’s distribution professionals. We have owned and operated a trucking business and recognize the importance of a quality diesel mechanic. Our owner, Jerry Prater, developed a keen interest in helping other trucking professionals. He received diesel mechanic training and later taught it at Forsyth Technical College. He then opened our company in 2012 to fill the truck and trailer needs of owner-operators and
fleet companies.

Our Featured Services

Because of our background as a trucking company, we understand that a reliable diesel mechanic is only part of the equation. It is also important for that professional to offer affordable options, so you can operate in a profitable manner. While other truck and trailer repair companies in the Mocksville, North Carolina area will press you into utilizing only new and OEM parts, we are happy to attempt to locate used parts if affordability is your objective.


Truck Services

We take care of everything from DOT inspections to engine and transmission repairs.

Trailer Services

Our trailer services include alignments, tires, brake repair, lighting and wiring, floor and door repair, and much more.

Engine Repair

Our engine repair services can improve engine performance or resolve a problem.

Mid Carolina Diesel: Helping You Find Your Way to Your Destination

A reliable and affordable diesel mechanic is your best friend for staying on and getting back on the road quickly.

We are also happy to explain the situation, letting you know what is going on so you can decide if you want to make the repair yourself. The reality is that in most cases, you can be back on the road more quickly if we do the work, and that is usually more important than saving a few dollars on labor. Speaking of labor costs, you’ll find our shop and after-hour rates to be reasonable and competitive, as well as our mileage rates for 24-hour road service. Our road service abilities are limited due to the availability of mechanics at our small shop, but we will make every effort we can to serve you when needed.
