Don’t Get Derailed by Vehicle & Equipment Maintenance

Your business runs like a well-oiled machine – until something breaks- which seems to happen on your typical already hectic morning. Now you’re down equipment, your day is shot, and of course, you’re under a tight deadline.

When one piece of equipment breaks, everything falls apart. 

Without the right equipment, your crew can’t complete their work. That means you have to push back your timelines. Your customers get frustrated by longer lead times. They think you are unreliable.

So, how can you avoid the unexpected?

By having a vehicle and equipment maintenance plan in place.

Importance of Planning for Vehicle & Equipment Maintenance

All vehicles and equipment break down eventually. That’s why it’s important to prepare for the unexpected. 

Here are some reasons to have a maintenance plan in place.

  • Prevent breakdowns

A preventative maintenance plan minimizes the chances of a premature breakdown. A little prevention can keep your vehicle on the road.

  • Plan for down equipment

Knowing when equipment will be out of commission helps you plan projects and stay on track. No more missed deadlines or angry customers.

  • Stick to your budget

Add maintenance as a line item in your budget. That way, a surprise bill won’t throw you off. You will have the money available.
