Many fleet managers understand that fleet maintenance is either scheduled or unscheduled. Scheduled maintenance is less of a hassle because it lets you handle minor problems before they get out of hand. Getting scheduled protective maintenance allows you to find potential problems and address them before they become more problematic and expensive to fix.
With that in mind, it’s still tough to keep up with all of your maintenance concerns. The best thing you can do is understand your maintenance concerns so that you minimize how much money you spend. If you follow these fleet maintenance tips, you’ll be in good shape.
Delegate the Task
Determine who will be in charge. Many people assume someone else will handle it, but someone is going to have to take initiative. That’s why you should decide who will handle it ahead of time.
The Maintenance Checklist
Making a maintenance checklist is important for determining every problem you want to have addressed. By putting someone in charge of creating a maintenance checklist, none of your vehicle maintenance needs will be overlooked.
Preventative Fleet Maintenance
Don’t wait for the moment your fleet breaks down to get your fleet maintenance done. If you wait until disaster strikes, the problems will have gotten more severe, meaning they take longer to fix, and they end up being more expensive. It also makes scheduling appointments more of a pain. By doing preventative maintenance instead, your problems won’t have time to get out of hand, and scheduling appointments will be easier because the problems will be less urgent.
Use Technology for Fleet Maintenance
One of the best things you can do for fleet maintenance is to use software to manage all of your maintenance tasks. Fleet maintenance software gives you access to critical data, including mileage, part replacements, and prior maintenance dates. Using fleet maintenance software makes it easier for scheduling and for keeping up with your maintenance needs. It also doesn’t hurt that you are able to get automatic alerts any time you need maintenance.
