Fleet Maintenance & Repair
Most people can relate to the stress of buying and maintaining one vehicle.
Now, imagine having a garage full of vehicles. Some of which are heavy-duty.
As you may already know, mechanics are your vehicle’s best friends. Most fleets are owned by a business or government so any breakdown can mean a loss of cash in real-time.
You wouldn’t want to risk losing valuable time and customers. If your fleet is for leasing, you have a much bigger worry.
In this context, a stitch in time saves more than nine. In the case of an actual breakdown, your fleet will benefit from prompt and great repair.
If this is done seamlessly, you are saved a lot of unnecessary hassle.

A fleet...what exactly is it? Does your collection qualify as a fleet?
A fleet refers to a bunch of vehicles for either commercial or rental use or vehicle from the government.
A collection of vehicles with a common owner.
Your favorite taxi companies, vehicle rentals, and transport companies all own fleets. Take-home vehicles, car-sharing, federal vehicles qualify as fleet vehicles.
Fleet vehicles also include vehicles operated by car rental companies, public utilities, public bus companies, and police departments.
You could also hire a fleet to help your business run smoothly.
What are the problems a fleet can experience?
Fleet owners experience the same problems as single-car owners but on a much larger scale.
From your fleet, a vehicle can breakdown, get into accidents, or even be stolen. Of these, the most common problem experienced would be the breakdown. It’s honestly no fun for your passenger filled car to suddenly ‘take a break’ in the middle of the road.
Issues range from the minor to the very serious ones.

How do you achieve top-notch Fleet maintenance?
With regards to the timing of maintenance, follow your vehicle manufacturer’s instructions but ultimately listen to your car…like you would a fussy baby. The unusual creaks or jolts of the vehicles should alert you.
Fleet maintenance providers abound. To be able to repair a truck, repair shops need to co-operate with fleet management companies. These companies handle quality checks and financing.
Technology has made life so much easier. With this, everything is accounted for. You wouldn’t forget birthdays or to bring your vehicles in for maintenance. There are many apps you can download to help you to track and assess each vehicle’s operations and fuel consumption.
They are invaluable in the maintenance and repair process. The drivers often know the fleet better than anyone else. Proper training is important. They should have an easy, fuss-free portal to alert you of any potential issues.
Keep in mind
Businesses cost a lot to maintain; from rents to taxes to staff salaries.
Do not add the cost of fixing a vehicle or worse still, replacing one.
Maintenance is ultimately a cheaper option.
The vehicle engine is likely to consume more fuel if it is in bad shape. Wear and tear are also increased.
If you ever have to reduce your fleet size by letting go of some vehicles, a well-maintained vehicle is easier to sell, and for a much higher value.
