Taking Care of the Company Vehicle Part 1

Company Vehicles

Looking after fleet and/or company vehicles, is often allocated to an administration staff member or a mid-management person who has a little
scope to add to their duties.

Much of the time this person has some experience, but often requires some assistance understanding the situation and finding the best way of  progressing.

The role is often best left to the experts, as these vehicles are a large investment and important to productivity. A good service company will have expertise in Communication, Servicing, Reporting, Record management and Scheduling in order to give ‘peace of mind’ to fleet ownership.

A fleet service management company may offer maintenance education for your business and driving staff, and perhaps a recovery or mobile service option. Maintenance education is a great option for both reducing vehicle running costs and adding value to staff members. It may prevent them from a reason to be delayed.

Some companies have the resources for replacing their vehicles each three years and have a service/maintenance agreement with a new vehicle provider. But for many, this is a luxury. If you lease, or have a mix of business owned newer and older vehicles, it could be a worthwhile consideration to connect with an approved aftermarket service provider that can offer a one stop ‘all brand’ solution.

If you’re thinking of purchasing a replacement vehicle, new or used, consider talking to your qualified mechanic/workshop. Not all makes and models are created equal, often with a little research within their circle, it may save you from purchasing a lemon.
