Car maintenance is important for your bottom line
Regular vehicle servicing and maintenance is a proven way to reduce costs for your fleet. Not only does it prevent excessive and unplanned maintenance needs, it will also minimise unscheduled disruptions to operations. If that’s not reason enough, here are the top reasons why maintenance is important for your bottom line.
It reduces the likelihood of accidents
Accidents are never good, especially when they can be prevented. Ongoing maintenance is a great way to reduce the likelihood of accidents within your fleet. From simple checks that could be done weekly, if not daily, like checking fluids and tyre pressure are little ways to keep your fleet and your business driving forward.
It keeps things running smoothly
When you plan for car maintenance, you can make arrangements that ensure your business is still fully functioning. This is why planned downtime is much more beneficial for your business. We’ve written before on the benefits of planned downtime here.
It’s cost efficient
Whilst it may not seem that way when you’re paying the cost for repairs, but for your business, regular maintenance drives down overall costs. This is because regular maintenance repairs pick on problems and solve them before any damage can be done, which is much cheaper than once the issue has already arisen and caused damage to vehicles. It’s always cheaper to repair than replace You also won’t be paying the cost of extended breakdowns.
It improves customer satisfaction
Your customer’s satisfaction rates are sure to increase when they know they can count on your reliable service and to achieve that reliable service you need vehicles on the road. The more cars and the more reliable you are, the happier your customers will be and the more likely they’ll be to re-use and recommend your service.
