All businesses rely on mobility to get the job done. However, every time you use your vehicle, you subject it to wear and tear; and without proper care and regular maintenance, it will eventually under-perform, slow down your operations, or even be a safety risk. Make it your New Year’s resolution to prioritize the maintenance of your fleet of trucks and buses. Here are five wise tips to keep your commercial vehicle fleet road-worthy:
Wise Tip#1: Set clear expectations for drivers
Drivers with poor driving habits and a lack of knowledge about maintenance can be detrimental to your operations in the long run. As a business owner, you are responsible for managing and training them in proper driving behavior and vehicle care. This will ensure the longevity and safety of your fleet.
Wise Tip #2: Measure and keep vehicle metrics on record
Driving habits and performance affect track mileage and fuel efficiency. This data can help you analyze and make better fleet management decisions when scheduling vehicle rollouts and maintenance. Make it a habit to record and regularly update vehicle and fleet metrics and other information. Should issues arise, you can always pull them out.
Wise Tip #3: Perform regular quick checks on vehicles.
Inspect your fleet before, during, and after every trip to address any unnoticed problems that could cause breakdowns or accidents. Drivers should always do a regular quick check on important components, like tires, brakes, fuel vents, radiator, oil level, and steering.
Wise Tip#4: Follow Preventive Maintenance Service schedule
Preventive Maintenance Service (PMS) involves taking the necessary precautions and actions to prevent accidents or vehicle failure. Stick to your PMS schedule to minimize downtime and keep vehicles in top and safe condition; and have it done at your authorized dealership.
Wise Tip#5: Use original parts
Using original spare parts and accessories prevents vehicle damage as they are designed and manufactured by your manufacturer to be compatible with your other components. This practice reduces maintenance costs in the long run and ensures warranty coverage.
