Safety first with a fleet vehicle maintenance checklist
The condition of your vehicle fleet is important, not only for the safety of your drivers but also for the image and reputation of your business. By taking time to evaluate their working conditions by utilizing a fleet vehicle maintenance checklist, you can ensure that each and every one of your vehicles are in top shape.
When assessing the condition of your vehicle fleet, Lumiform's provided fleet vehicle condition report gives you a standard glimpse into what you should look for:
Interior: Check for any signs of water damage or fire damage. Also look for malfunctions with airbags, seat belts, or other electronic equipment. Look for scratches or dents on interior surfaces; cracks in fabrics; and tears in plastic trim or fabric seats.
Exterior: Inspect all paintwork (front-, side-, and rear-)for chipping, peeling/flaking/rusting metallic areas due to poor weathering care/, accumulation debris from puddles /mudholes etc., excessive rust visible around wheel wells etc.; damaged bumpers /fenders etc.; faded registration numbers on sides & front hoods; headlights which don’t meet legal requirements; dirty windshields (including rainwater).
Engine compartment: Check fluid levels, exhaust system clearances, and oil levels. Is smoke coming out from under the car? Are there big leaks anywhere? If yes - schedule repairs at the earliest opportunity!
