Make fleet maintenance a priority

If you want to keep your fleet running costs down, the best thing you can do as a fleet manager is make sure your vehicles are well maintained.

There are a number of ways you can do this, and Smartfleet's fleet management software is here to help!

If one of your vehicles is involved in an accident, it is important that any damage it sustains is dealt with straight away.

At Smartfleet, we offer both accident management and roadside assistance as part of our wide range of fleet services.

We offer a 24-hour toll-free number that your drivers can call for total assistance at the scene of an incident. We will also make sure all safety procedures are followed correctly and we will document all accident details via our fleet software.

That means every speck of damage will be recorded, so when the vehicle is being repaired no dent or ding will be left unaddressed.

One way fleet managers might try to keep the costs of running their fleets down is by pinching pennies when it comes to organising servicing and repairs.

While this may save you money in the short term, the long-term ramifications of such a decision can be costly. If a repair isn't done right the first time, that just means you're putting your drivers at risk.

It also means that it won't be long before the vehicle is back in the shop - wasting valuable time and unnecessary money.

If you outsource your fleet management to Smartfleet, you will have access to some of the best labour, parts and tyres around.

And because we have an established service network, you can save up to 30 per cent on all services you organise through us.

Working with Smartfleet is the best way to save on fleet maintenance costs without having to cut corners!
