“Since 1985, I believe they have paid for themselves each year in what they save me in repair costs. Three specific points I’d like to mention:

1. Using Fleetpro saved me from getting sued. An employee sued us claiming that we were negligent in maintaining our vehicle. Carroll Insulation was able to produce Fleetpro records proving that the vehicle was maintained, and when we sent the Fleetpro Records to the lawyer, he dropped his case.

2. State Police began doing random checks at businesses only a few weeks after a PM law was enacted. They came to Carroll Insulation and asked to see our records. We showed them the Fleetpro Computerized checklist, which met and exceeded the law. Because of the Fleetpro Computerized Check system, we never had to add anything to what we were already doing.

3. We used to have to track mileage on trucks then send them to a service station a few miles away. It took 2 men to take there and 2 men to retrieve it the next day. With Fleetpro, the work is done at our location, and we never lose truck time, and have no shuttle costs."
