A van is a tool. And a tool is only useful when it’s doing the job you need it for. So it’s important to minimise van down time - to ensure you keep your vehicles on the road and your fleet earns its keep for your business.
How to minimise LCV down time
The more regular your fleet preventive maintenance schedules, the less likely your fleet vehicles are to need unforeseen maintenance or repairs. An SMR contract with your fleet operator can help to maintain your vehicles’ performance and efficiency and reduce downtime through regular servicing. Especially if, like Volkswagen Financial Services | Fleet, your leasing partner directs you towards franchised dealer servicing and genuine parts, paints and glass for all makes, as standard.
The faster a problem is solved, the less time your van spends off the road. Driverline 24/7 concierge service quickly takes care of almost all vehicle issues, including:
- Tyre and glass replacement
- Same-day booking for servicing, vehicle repairs and MOTs, all in one call
- Accident and vandalism reporting.
Buying or leasing new vehicles enables you to operate them with minimum wear and tear, for longer. With a choice of vans of every make and model, and a range of cost-effective funding options, leasing with Volkswagen Financial Services | Fleet can bring new vans within the scope of any budget.
