Fleet Managers

Your company’s fleet manager controls the business transportation fleet, equipment, and oversees financial responsibilities of the fleet, vehicle maintenance, safety, driver management, and overall efficiency.

In order to keep your vehicles in good shape and on the road, they will require regular fleet maintenance and repairs. A fleet manager’s focus is to make sure every vehicle is maintained with regular service and any needed repairs are addressed, as well as decide when it is no longer cost-effective to keep the vehicle.

A fleet manager also has to keep track of where your fleet vehicles are, their registration and licensing, and which employee-driver is assigned to which vehicle.

Preventative Maintenance

By letting us do your fleet maintenance we can track of each vehicle’s maintenance schedule and make sure it is done on time and by our experienced technicians. Good consistent maintenance can save your company money and unnecessary repairs.

Fleet Operators

Preventative fleet maintenance can be affected by the driver of the fleet vehicle because they know what the vehicle has been through and how it is driving, including safety systems, drivability issues, the vehicle body, and other repairs. The fleet driver can perform regular inspections and report any concerns or problems to the fleet manager who can take action to address any issues.

Safe and Reliable Vehicle Performance

According to a Government Fleet article, paying attention to your fleet maintenance helps keep vehicles and equipment in good working order to provide efficient, safe, and reliable performance and keep them running for as long as possible. Regular maintenance should include scheduled servicing, inspections, and vehicle repairs which can be based on time, mileage, engine hours, or gallons of fuel used. Your business relies on your fleet, so your goal is to prevent breakdowns, cut down on emergency road calls, and reduce the expense of unexpected repairs.

Keeping on top of the fleet maintenance schedule will keep operators safe, increase the resale value of the vehicle and improve the company’s image with good-looking and well-run vehicles. In addition, you save the company possible litigation from negligence.

The best way to keep your fleet maintained well is to schedule preventive maintenance, planned component repairs, and driver inspections for each company vehicle.

With an effective and efficient preventative fleet maintenance program, you should consider including these services:

  • Engine oil and filter changes
  • Transmission fluid
  • Tires, wheels, and rims
  • Exhaust system
  • Cooling system
  • Windshield wipers
  • Tune-ups
  • Electrical system
  • Braking system
  • Engine and transmission mounts
  • Driveshafts or CV joints
  • Undercarriage and frame
  • Exterior and interior lights
  • Body, glass, and mirrors
  • Horn, seat belts, and seats
  • Fluid leaks
  • Auxiliary systems
  • Fuel system
  • Hoses and belts
  • Steering and suspension system
  • Tires, wheels, and rims
  • Exhaust system

If you want to increase safety and efficiency with fleet maintenance, your timing and frequency rely on following the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended services and the vehicle’s operating conditions. Some vehicles are towing a trailer, operate in off-road conditions, have multiple drivers, or experience highway or inner city driving and may have different maintenance needs.

Preventative Maintenance Software

There are preventative maintenance and management software packages available to help you handle all the information about your company’s fleet. It may be worth the cost to reduce time and workload, even if you have a small fleet. Preventative maintenance software may be an efficient and accurate way to generate reports that can help you make fleet decisions.

This kind of software can help your company design customized maintenance schedules, create and track work orders, track accident and claims, tally fuel usage, show maintenance histories, and tire logs, and generate invoicing and stock reports.

Tracking and Reports

Track the costs of parts, labor, fuel, and collisions to determine which vehicles cost the most to operate helps your business figure out when vehicles need to be replaced. A properly maintained fleet offers lower operating costs because if a vehicle is not performing well it will suffer costly repairs and higher fuel costs. Monthly reports about vehicle repairs, maintenance, and costs can be put out by the fleet manager and given to senior management for review.
