Keeping Your Commercial Truck Fleet in Top Shape

Managing and operating a fleet of commercial trucks can be a daunting task, one that can be made easier by working with an experienced commercial auto-mechanic. At Thunderbird Auto, we’ve been servicing commercial fleets for years and wanted to take some time today to go over a few tips you can use to maintain your fleet of commercial vehicles.

Preventative Maintenance Will Keep Your Sleet Running

As the old adage goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and this certainly holds true when it comes to maintaining a commercial fleet. You should have your vehicles regularly looked over by a professional auto-mechanic. Doing so could lead you to a number of savings down the road.

Keep a Watch on Your Total Cost of Ownership

As your vehicles age, they will become more costly to maintain, which means you will need to decide when it’s time to move on from an older fleet vehicle. This is a difficult decision to make. You want to make the most cost-effective decision. If you’re unsure about whether or not you should retire a vehicle, consult with a professional auto-maintenance provider.

Develop a Set of Rules and Enforce Them

You may trust your employees, but no matter how much you trust them, if they’re using one of your company vehicles, you need to have a set of guidelines in place for them to follow. You should create a list of rules designed to allow only the safe and efficient operation of your fleet’s vehicles.

Consult with an Experienced Commercial Fleet Mechanic

No matter the size of your fleet, our team at Thunderbird Auto is standing by ready to help you. We’ve serviced commercial fleets of all sizes and know you’ll be satisfied with our work.
