The Value of 100% Preventative Maintenance Completion
A recent survey by GE Capital Fleet Services estimates that monthly preventative maintenance (PM) costs rose by 4% per vehicle during the 2012 calendar year. Per month replacement tire costs also increased by 15% on a cost-per-mile basis during the year, the previous year it was 10%.
Despite these increases in the cost of care, 100% preventative maintenance completion is critical in saving you money in the long term. Even if your business chooses to cycle your fleet early, a history of regular, comprehensive maintenance means the likelihood of a higher resale value. Not only that, it also prevents breakdowns, reduces downtime, increases safety and proactively addresses potential failures before they happen. This increases uptime, reduces costs, ensures in-service ratios are as high as possible and extends the vehicle lifecycle. Are those enough reasons for you?
When it comes to maintenance, not all vehicles are created equal. A service schedule that works for half of your fleet may not be necessary for the other half.
