All industries are affected by the COVID-19 crisis. For many, it means a considerable slow-down in business and even lay-offs of workers. For others, like the trucking industry, it could mean increased productivity, longer hours, and trying to get things done with less staff.
Motorplex offers fleet repairs and fleet maintenance in Auburn, WA, and Spokane, WA. Here are ways we can help fleet managers and meet them where they are at during this challenging crisis.
For Fleet Managers Experiencing Downtime
While most delivery services are seeing an increase in business, especially those responsible for food and medical supplies, some might be slowing down. If that’s you, now might be a good time to do a good spring cleaning of your fleet. Get ahead of preventative maintenance tasks that usually get put off during times of high demand. When every fleet maintenance task is complete, you’ll know your assets will be ready to operate at peak efficiency and performance when business bounces back to normal.
There are some maintenance tasks that you and your employees can take care of on their own. For some smaller jobs, DIY fleet maintenance can help save money during a time of minimal revenue. For the larger jobs, trust the experience and skills of our professional team at Motorplex in Auburn and Spokane.
For Fleet Managers Who Are Experiencing Increased Demand
If your fleet is working hard to meet higher demand during this crisis, you might feel overwhelmed. It’s exciting to be getting more business and feels good to keep staff on the payroll, but you have to make sure your fleet is up to the challenge.
Motorplex can help you manage your fleet maintenance to ensure vehicles are getting scheduled service effectively and quickly, minimizing downtime. If you neglect fleet maintenance and preventative service, one or more of your vehicles could experience a breakdown. Having an asset in your fleet down can have significant repercussions for both your business and the community-at-large as the delivery of goods is vital right now.
Make sure your on-site employees and drivers are still doing detailed inspections of the vehicles before and after every trip. Pre and post-trip inspections will help catch an issue before it becomes a breakdown during transport. If that unfortunate breakdown does occur, you can count on Motorplex to offer on-site mobile repairs.
