Having a fleet is a profitable business but is also a responsibility that the owner needs to take extremely seriously as this is his or her income earner. Like any other car, the cars within a fleet need to be monitored and serviced frequently as they undergo wear and tear due to constantly being on the road.
Managing and inspecting the fleet goes a long way in showing that the business is cared for and well thought of.
For starters, frequent inspection is important as it is a means of undercutting unscheduled maintenance costs for the company which means that the company will not have to use budgeted funds to cater for the unforeseen circumstance.
Reduction on unproductive down time
Whenever a car breaks down in the middle of a delivery, this automatically means a delay for the Client and his business and this doesn’t paint a good picture of the Agency to the Client. Ensuring that all the fleets are maintained automatically saves face for the Agency as this paints an ”efficient and reliable group” picture to the Client.
Elongated Lifespan for the fleet

At the end of the day, being trustworthy, profitable and efficient is the end goal for all businesses.
