Select the Right Maintenance Partner


Whether you’re launching a national program or testing a pilot site, deciding to outsource your fleet maintenance program is an extensive decision. How is your business navigating potential relationships and vetting vendors? Read on and select the right maintenance partner.

Now more than ever, it’s critical to evaluate the costs associated with your fleet maintenance. The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way nearly all businesses operate on a day-to-day level. Fleets across the country are having trouble finding qualified drivers, technicians, and fleet managers. Whether your fleet is looking to add mobile service centers to support routine maintenance and improve compliance or looking for an outside vendor to manage your maintenance program, vetting your prospects is the first step in making significant change.

There are ten vital questions your business should ask when vetting potential vendors:

  1. How does the maintenance provider manage quality?
  2. Will the maintenance partner offer priority service?
  3. Does the vendor demonstrate cost transparency?
  4. How does the maintenance provider handle the unexpected?
  5. How does the provider attract, develop, and retain the best technicians in the industry?
  6. How will detailed information on all services be captured?
  7. How will the vendor manage the transition?
  8. How does the provider manage safety and risk?
  9. How does the vendor ensure consistent, standardized work processes and policy for all vehicles?
  10. How will the maintenance provider bring continual quality improvement and cost reduction to the fleet?

Asking these questions can help your business navigate how vendors communicate, what their priorities are and how you can partner in a way that benefits your fleet and your schedule. Every fleet has unique service needs, and it’s crucial that your needs are met.
