Protect Your Fleet with Preventative Maintenance

How to Stay on Top of Fleet Maintenance and Inspections

To keep your company running smoothly, it’s crucial to keep your fleet running strong. If a vehicle breaks down, it could make your daily business operations come to a screeching halt.

To keep your fleet in great shape, you need to stay on top of fleet maintenance and inspections.

Thankfully, the ASE-certified mechanics at C&M Automotive & Transmission in Simi Valley, California, are here to help.

Here’s how you can successfully streamline fleet management by keeping track of maintenance and inspections.

  • Know Your Fleet’s Maintenance Schedule
  • Learn about the maintenance and inspection schedules recommended by the original equipment manufacturer (OEM). These will be different for all vehicles, so always check the owner’s manual for each vehicle in your fleet. It’s important to note that some maintenance schedules are based on time, while others depend on hours of operation.

  • Create a Plan
  • To accurately plot your fleet inspections and maintenance, use a 12-month calendar to plan service appointments for all vehicles for the entire year. Add the maintenance schedule for each piece of equipment your business has purchased and used in the fleet.

  • Stick to Your Schedule
  • Now that you’ve plotted out your annual fleet inspections and maintenance services, you can execute the schedule. Keep your planning calendar separate from your scheduling one. While the former gives you a clear picture of what should happen, the scheduling calendar tells you what is taking place in real-time.

    Lower usage, downtime, and other factors can cause the two calendars to deviate from one another. But that’s okay!
