Running a transport business is a challenging undertaking and more often than not you may get caught up in the nitty-gritty of the trade, and end up neglecting your fleet maintenance. There is a tendency to overlook simple tasks such as oil changes, brake, and electrical system checks. The result is bigger problems down the road (excuse the pun). That can, however, be avoided using cutting-edge transport tech such as the Whip Around mobile app.
Here are some of the benefits you will gain from prioritizing vehicle maintenance – however how small the issue in question is.
The statement; prevention is better than cure is true, and this aptly applies when it comes to fleet management. While most vehicles' faulty systems may not pose immediate risks, they are ticking time bombs. It is, therefore, important to correct them as soon as they become apparent.
Well maintained vehicles usually operate at the most optimal level. Fuel consumption is low, and your crew doesn't get penalized during random safety checks by law enforcement officials. Opting to repair your vehicle in good time, reduces the cost of repairs carried out since the problem will have affected key components of the vehicle.
In transport business, your fleet is your brand image. Customers and the community at large compare quality of services with how your vans and trucks look or operate. If your vehicles keep breaking down on the road, the impression your potential clients get is that your services are not reliable.
