Preventative Maintenance and Inspection
Fleetpro’s provides On-Site Preventive Maintenance and Inspection services to commercial, municipal, and federal vehicle and equipment fleet customers. Currently, over 300 clients service over 14,000 units in the Mid-Atlantic region with Fleetpro. By providing hundreds of thousands of high quality services since 1982, Fleetpro has identified and implemented the elements necessary to maintaining dependable, high- quality service in the On-Site Maintenance business. These include:
- A set of products to properly meet the maintenance needs of commercial-grade fleets that, upon delivery, will result in lower fleet costs and higher productivity.
- The service procedures, standards, and policies combined with a quality-based incentive pay plan to provide the products to pre-defined quality levels.
- Cost-efficient systems to reliably deliver the products, including equipment, fluid delivery and oil evacuation systems in both truck-mounted and fixed distribution (depot) versions.
- Recruitment and training programs that ensure a quality versed technical staff.
- An Operations Management system supported by an operations manual that documents the daily, weekly, and monthly requirements.
- A computer-based system to provide support for training, operations, vehicle and usage information, exception reporting, P.M.I. scheduling, logistics management, vehicle key management, services reporting, and required follow-up notifications.
A typical Fleetpro customer profile includes vehicle or equipment fleets of 10 to 4000 units. Logistically, these fleets are scattered in parking lots, at job sites, or even in front of repair shops – during the workday, at night, or weekends. Fleetpro services support in-house or contractor repair and maintenance programs. Inspection results are documented in the proprietary exception reporting system. It is common for Fleetpro customers to report a 25% reduction in repair and maintenance costs. This does not include the “soft” dollar savings and productivity increases, which are high.
