The Wheels On The Bus Go Round and Round – The Importance of A Preventive Maintenance Program
When you have your fleet of buses serviced, you know that they will be safe on the road and that any risks associated with keeping your buses running has been reduced. To keep your buses running optimally and efficiently, you want them to be a part of a fleet maintenance service.
Why be so concerned about preventive maintenance?
Preventative maintenance guarantees road safety, and can extend the length of your fleet’s operation. Preventative maintenance allows for mechanical problems to be identified long before they get to the stage where they cause a breakdown. Having your fleet looked over on a regular basis means that the your buses will experience the minimal amount of down-time. There’s no point in having a fleet of buses that aren’t in good enough condition to be out on the road!
Don’t forget your drivers and their safety, too. Preventive maintenance will go a long way in ensuring that you are protected if there is ever a mishap or accident. No one likes costly liabilities to contend with, and by servicing your fleet as they come due, you are ensuring that your vehicles are important to you and so are your drivers.
Vehicles must be safe to operate. Should anything happen, such as brake failure, your vehicle will be held for inspection to find out the cause of the accident. If it turns out that your fleet isn’t regularly serviced, this could have a major impact on your business. It just stands to reason, that proper maintenance can prevent litigation from negligence.
Be proactive in your company’s preventive maintenance program. You always want to know that your vehicles are in tip-top shape. You have a lot riding on it.
