Too Much Fleet Maintenance can Eat Your Core Business

MaintenanceBeing able to discern what’s pressing from what’s unimportant is foremost in business. Had a business executive not been able to distinguish the two, he’d be answering every phone call he hears in the office – to everyone’s annoyance. That analogy should hold water in maintaining your fleet. You can focus on getting your fleet in tip-top shape. However, in doing so you could end up sabotaging your core operations, to everybody’s detriment.

One Gargantuan Task

If mountain bike maintenance seem to be consuming a lot of your time, how much more managing a fleet. Then, you’ll have to make sure each and every vehicle in your fleet is running at optimum levels. To do that, you’ll have to factor in refuelling and maintenance costs amongst many others so each vehicle gets an ample amount of service when needed.

Moreover, you’ll have to make sure every driver reports on time every time – and not severely undermine your operations by being absent. Add cost-reduction initiatives and various operational tweaks needed to better your service and you get the idea how pressing running a fleet is.

Letting the Pros In

To ease such huge burden on your shoulders, outsourcing your fleet maintenance by Dr Diesel could be a good start. While there is wisdom in keeping an in-house team of mechanics, you’d easily be lost at making sure your homegrown mechanics are doing the job right. In effect, your overseeing task multiplies.

On the contrary, an outsourced fleet maintenance is focused on the results. As agreed, these professionals must perform or they’d run out of clients.In short, these vehicle experts get the job done at less the cost – which is ideally what any company, including yours want.

Also, this means you won’t have to invest some of your capital funds on unrelated business functions. Thus, you won’t need to buy vehicle maintenance tools or worry about upgrading your personnel’s knowhow on vehicle repair as mandated by the government.

Now, you can focus on growing a business – free from the huge burden vehicle maintenance brings.
