Are your maintenance costs spiralling out of control?

When it comes to managing fleet costs, having a maintenance control package, offered by a fleet services specialist, such as Avis Fleet, is a sure-fire way of managing these things efficiently and effectively. Here’s why a maintenance control package alleviates most of the burden of maintenance costs.

Managed maintenance increases productivity and decreases down time in comparison to an ad-hoc maintenance approach

Inevitably, cars are subject to sporadic breakdowns. In most cases there is a reactive, rather than proactive approach to these: it’s only when they happen that maintenance comes to mind. But having an inoperable vehicle can affect business in terms of loss of productivity and down-time. In contrast, preventative repairs – or managed maintenance – provides an alternative that services vehicles on a regular basis over the lifespan of that vehicle. This allows the vehicle to run at its best at all points of its lifespan and helps to mitigate random faults.

What’s more, Avis Fleet has a network of preferred parts and service providers, decreasing overall maintenance costs.

A maintenance control package reduces lifecycle costs

An effective way to reduce maintenance costs is by tracking the lifecycle of a vehicle, pre-empting repairs at a specific lifecycle stage. If not, there’s the risk of increased repairs and services on an aging vehicles. A maintenance control package ensures that cars are maintained at an optimum level.

Overall there are many methods that can be implemented to negate spiralling maintenance costs for a fleet, all of which have the potential of offering a real and practical turnaround for a business. Fleet managers should see spiralling maintenance costs as an opportunity to not only change their habits for the better, but to also produce a more efficient and profitable business.
