The Mechanics of Management
There are many options you can use for fleet management. Your choice should depend on factors such as the size of your business, the number of vehicles in your fleet, and your preferences and comfort level with paper vs. digital record keeping. If you manage a small fleet, a paper file or simple spreadsheet for each auto may be sufficient and easy to manipulate. For large fleets, however, you may want to consider fleet management software. We’re also glad to help you keep track of what work was done to your transportation on which dates. You’ll also need to consider other elements that need addressing in your firm. For instance, even though it isn’t directly related to mechanical maintenance, you’ll likely want to develop driver policies and protocols. It’s a great idea to have these in writing and located in every car or truck so that it’s handy for the driver if they encounter a situation en route. Having a solid plan and good records helps protect you from certain liabilities and may even help you with your commercial auto insurance policy.
