Stay on the Road Longer with Driven Auto Care's Fleet Maintenance
When you need your fleet to be efficient, you need to keep it maintained. It doesn’t matter if you have a small fleet of a few delivery trucks or vans or a large fleet of company vehicles; they all need to be maintained to keep them on the road and safe. Fleet maintenance services are specialized services tailored to meet the needs of each business’s fleet of vehicles, including standard factory-recommended maintenance, optimizing performance, safety, and longevity. Driven Auto Care in Fremont, CA can provide the fleet maintenance services you need to keep your fleet running.
Preventative Maintenance for Fleets in Fremont, CA
Fleets often require more preventative fleet maintenance than non-business vehicles because they travel more miles in a month than someone commuting to work. Driven Auto Care works with business fleet managers to create a schedule that least disrupts the business. Preventative fleet maintenance includes additional checks to catch issues before they leave a fleet driver stranded on the side of the road. Routine checks include tires, brakes, transmission, engine components, and fluids.
Cost Savings for Fremont, CA Fleets at Driven Auto Care
Keeping your fleet efficient means you save money. If a vehicle breaks down, that driver and vehicle are not working until the driver can get back to the shop and pick up another vehicle. If the business does not have extra vehicles in the fleet, that driver loses a day or more of work, which costs the business money on top of the repairs. Keeping up with preventative maintenance on fleet vehicles significantly minimizes surprise breakdowns. Instead, we catch potential issues and repair them before they leave you stranded.
Vehicle Safety Improvement
When fleet drivers wreck because of poorly maintained vehicles, it costs the company vehicle repairs, workers’ compensation, and possible legal ramifications. Brake systems, tires, lights, steering components, and suspension issues are just a few of the issues an experienced auto technician at Driven Auto Care can alert you to before those issues cause additional damage to the vehicle or an accident.
While you might think bringing each of your fleet vehicles in for maintenance contributes to too much downtime, it’s even more if you have to bring them in for repairs. Every minute your vehicles are off the road is lost revenue. The best way to minimize lost revenue and downtime is to schedule fleet vehicles for service on a rotating schedule so not every car is off the road during the same week.
This also reduces downtime since you can schedule an appointment for upcoming repairs instead of having to wait for a tow truck and parts, should we have to order them. In many cases, we can pre-order parts and have them waiting for your appointment time. Finally, we give fleet vehicles priority at Driven Auto Care.
