The importance of commercial fleet vehicle maintenance


The importance of commercial fleet vehicle maintenanceAs a business owner who relies on various cars and trucks to complete the services offered by your company you know that it is critical for those vehicles to continue to operate with ease. Well those autos rely on you, too, in order to provide them with proper maintenance so that they won't have to let you down. By keeping up with routine maintenance for your fleet vehicles you can rest assured that your business won't be letting down your customers either.

Keep service and deliveries on time

In order to keep your bottom line green you need to be able to complete your services or deliveries in a timely fashion. It takes a healthy car or truck to be able to do this. Putting off maintenance, which includes oil changes, belt and hose replacement, diagnostics, fluid flushes and out scheduled services, you put your cars at risk of a breakdown. Not only will this mean that your customers will be quite disappointed when they don't see you at their door when they thought they would, but you're also going to have to dig into your pocketbook to pay for what will likely be some expensive repairs.

Reduce the cost of fleet vehicle repairs

It may seem strange to pay for regular maintenance when your car or truck seems to be running just fine. However, this maintenance is key to ensuring that the engine and other vehicle systems continue to operate at peak performance. It seems reasonable to pay $200 to keep your car running great, as it currently is, then wait a few thousand more miles or so and have to shell out $2,000 in order to get it back on the road following some catastrophic breakdown. It isn't a matter of if, but one of when. Be sure to check your vehicle's service schedule inside the owner's manual to find out what services are needed and when.

Teach drivers to look for signs of trouble

If you have a team of drivers operating your fleet vehicles be sure they are trained to inform the fleet manager when their car is due for service. They should also be trained to pay attention to any signs of trouble so that the vehicle can serviced before any driveability issue is allowed to grow worse.
