Our Top Tips for Effective Ongoing Fleet Maintenance

Effective fleet maintenance requires a multi-faceted approach, and after our years of experience in this industry, we have compiled a few of our top recommendations for maintaining your fleet of vehicles:

  • First and foremost, recognize the importance of the cost savings you achieve with fleet maintenance. When you properly maintain your vehicles, you can reduce unscheduled downtime and unexpected repairs, which can affect your business’ profitability.
  • Secondly, you should be aware of the maintenance requirements of every vehicle in your fleet. This can help you make accurate predictions about maintenance costs and the expected lifecycle of your fleet.
  • Make sure all your drivers are aware of your basic fleet maintenance requirements. Communicate any responsibilities on their end, so they know what to do in the event of an accident or unexpected repair.
  • Do not overlook the importance of tire pressure. The tire pressure of your vehicles affects the way they handle, fuel mileage, and tire wear, which all contribute to driver and vehicle safety. Check and maintain tire pressure on a regular basis to prevent unexpected maintenance problems.
