Keeping Track of Maintenance - Why It’s So Important

mechanic working on car Keeping track of maintenance done on your fleet vehicles and commercial trucks is one of the most important aspects of fleet management. At Westerville Automotive in Westerville, OH, we track maintenance and repairs for a number of reasons. Here’s why:

Cost - How much it costs to keep a vehicle on the road is important. This factor alone often determines whether you’re better of fixing a vehicle or getting rid of it altogether. If the cost of keeping one running begins to outweigh the value of replacing the vehicle, the only way you’ll know is by reviewing records of repair costs.

Problem Solving - If you notice an issue with one of your vehicles, a good record of maintenance will help determine a quick solution to your problem. For example, if you know you added a quart of oil every 300 miles between oil changes, there’s definitely an issue worth looking into - this bit of information tells us a lot about what might be going on in your engine, and lets us know exactly where to look. If the same tire keeps getting replaced, but the root of the issue isn’t fixed, it’s an issue that will only continue to get worse. If one tire is wearing more quickly than the others, that indicates a problem and tells us exactly where to look.

Savings - If you keep track of everything, you’ll know what’s under warranty, know which vehicles need maintenance and which don’t, and you’ll save time and trouble when a repair or maintenance item needs to be checked off the list. All that translates directly into more money for your business. We keep track of what we do, but without your records, it may only be half of the story. Detailed record keeping will make your job easier and more efficient. For the best fleet and commercial service shop in Westerville, OH, call or stop by Westerville Automotive today.
