Preventive maintenance for fleets is the best way to reduce – even avoid – vehicle breakdowns. Preventive maintenance is based on mileage, time, engine hours, or gallons of fuel used. When pre-defined thresholds are met, preventive maintenance plans trigger activities such as vehicle inspection, cleaning, testing, repairs, the replacement of parts, lubrication, and other ongoing vehicle maintenance activities.
When managing a fleet, vehicle availability is paramount. Preventive maintenance is useful for fleets, as performing maintenance tasks on a scheduled basis is preferable to pulling a vehicle from availability for unexpected breakdowns and repairs. Preventive maintenance can reduce long-term costs by extending the usable life of your vehicles, and additionally, it helps to ensure the safety of your vehicle operators on the road.
