Advantages of Fleet Car Servicing on The Sunshine Coast

>> Jul 4, 2018


We all know the saying ‘prevention is better than cure’ and when it comes to car fleet services; that’s certainly the case. Businesses rely heavily on their vehicles yet are often so busy they forget about regular maintenance.

The fact is, professional fleet maintenance services will not only keep your company’s vehicles on the road but will also reduce your running costs.

The secret is to find the right local vehicle specialists for the job. Ideally, you want a team of highly skilled technicians who will look after the entire process for you. They will determine the most convenient schedule, let you know when servicing is due, collect your vehicles, service them and then return your vehicles promptly so you can keep your team on the road making you money.

In the day-to-day operations of a busy company, it’s so easy to overlook things like oil changes, brake system maintenance and other important checks. Keeping these tasks up-to-date, on the other hand, offers so many financial and operational benefits.

Reliability

To maintain your excellent customer service reputation, you can’t afford unexpected breakdowns on the job. This will not only cause delays but could incur penalties. A late delivery could very well turn into a lost customer.

Your fleet needs to be ready to go at all times; your employees need to get on the road, get the job done and return safely to base. The only way to ensure this is always the case is to arrange regular fleet car servicing on the Sunshine Coast.

Save Money

It’s a known fact that well maintained vehicles save you money. They are more efficient, less likely to need expensive repairs and will last longer. They will also achieve a better re-sale price.

As a business, one of your biggest costs is probably fuel to keep your fleet on the road. With regular servicing your vehicles will give you improved fuel consumption, saving you a lot of money over the course of a year.

Safety

While driver error is the #1 cause of car accidents in Australia, poorly maintained vehicles also contribute to the number of injuries on our roads every year. The main issues tend to be tyres, steering and brakes.

It’s not just tyre tread that’s a problem; under and even over inflated tyres will affect a vehicle’s stability, road-holding and braking. If your wheels are not properly balanced, this can also be very dangerous.

A vehicle’s braking system can quite literally mean the difference between life and death. Scheduled fleet servicing means those brakes are being regularly checked and maintained, thus reducing the risk of your employee having an accident. The same applies to steering.

You may be surprised to read this but the transport, postal and warehousing industry is responsible for more worker fatalities than any other industry, including mining. In 2017, the transport industry reported over 60 deaths.

Looking Professional

There’s one other important factor that’s often overlooked, and that’s how your fleet looks. Your work vehicles are every bit as important as your logo and marketing when it comes to your brand. In fact, your fleet is really a 24/7 advertisement.

When your vehicles are out and about they are giving potential customers an impression of your organisation. If your fleet is badly cared for, that’s a very negative statement on the road. What does it say about your company? It says that you don’t care, and if you don’t care about your vehicles, you don’t care about your customers. (At least, that’s the perception.)

Your vehicles and drivers need to be immaculate, reliable and send the right message to the community if you are to succeed in business.

Staff Morale

Believe it or not, the state of your fleet affects staff morale. If your employee is given a dirty, neglected and potentially dangerous vehicle to drive, it suggests that he is unimportant to your company. He or she believes you are not concerned about their safety.

If your employees are out on the road a lot, they can expect a comfortable well-maintained vehicle. Quite simply, it is a tool that you provide to enable them to do their job well. A happy employee is a productive employee.

Studies have shown that an employee who feels appreciated and cared for will be 12% more productive. Unhappy workers on the other hand, are 10% less productive. Just think what that can mean for your organisation’s bottom line.

The Future

With far too many accidents and deaths on Australian roads fleet management is under the spotlight. Poorly maintained vehicles and drivers who have exceeded their hours will incur big fines and prosecution in the future. It’s just not worth the risk to your organisation’s reputation so the time to take action is now.

By arranging regular fleet car servicing on the Sunshine Coast now, it’s one less thing for you to worry about.
