For businesses with fleets, the average cost of downtime per vehicle can be anywhere between $448 and $760 per day. That’s why keeping your fleet on the road as much as possible is essential. At the same time, unplanned malfunctions and unexpected repairs are inevitable, and stats show that 52% of unscheduled maintenance events lead to two or more days of downtime.
Luckily, with Firestone Direct, planning and managing your fleet maintenance helps maximize vehicle uptime and get you back on the road, faster. Learn more about how Firestone Direct can simplify fleet care.
Firestone Direct is a mobile vehicle and tire repair, and maintenance service that comes to you. We partner with you to come up with a strategy for maintaining your fleet on a schedule that makes sense for your business. That includes deciding when the best time is to do routine maintenance on a number of vehicles and having options for when unexpected repairs come up. With Firestone Direct, you can help minimize fleet downtime and help increase efficiency, which can save you valuable time and money.
Fleets require the same services as personal vehicles, just on a larger scale. Our mobile mechanics offer a wide range of services including:
For businesses that rely on vehicles, “uptime”, which is time spent up and running as expected, is directly tied to productivity and profits. While routine maintenance and occasional repairs are unavoidable, there are ways to keep downtime to a minimum. A mobile mechanic service like Firestone Direct helps streamline your maintenance needs and gives you more time to focus on other essential parts of the business.
Firestone Direct maximizes fleet uptime by:
The gas and mileage it takes to get to and from the mechanic shop will no longer be a problem. Gone are the days of having your drivers wasting valuable time waiting in a shop while repairs are made. Our mechanics have fully equipped service vans and will come to your lot for inspections, maintenance, and repairs services.
Being proactive with your vehicle maintenance is a great way to ensure the longevity of your vehicles. Our mechanics do a bumper-to-bumper, full fleet inspection of the health of each vehicle and provide recommendations for preventative maintenance.
Our custom DVI report is a bumper-to-bumper overview of the health of your fleet vehicles. It includes what is going well, what may need to be addressed in the next 90 days and any repairs or maintenance that should be done immediately. The report is easy to read and organized, so you’re able to plan for next steps and keep your vehicles running smoothly.
Minimize disruptions during your busiest times by scheduling maintenance for the entire fleet when it makes the most sense for your business. We will work with you to determine the ideal service cadence to minimize operational impact to your business.
Our mechanics can complete service for multiple vehicles in a single appointment instead of scheduling them all separately.
We know every business has different needs, so we’ll work with you to create a service plan that makes sense for your fleet.
Maintaining a fleet of vehicles can be a significant expense for businesses of all sizes. Firestone Direct is equipped to service any fleet size with vehicles including:
The services you need depend on your business and the type of vehicles you have. With Firestone Direct, we’ll help you create a maintenance schedule that makes sense for the requirements of your vehicles. For example, a large truck that traverses country roads and unpaved areas may require more wheel alignments than a car that mostly drives on the highway and city streets. With customized service plans, you can be sure you’re making the most of your budget.
Vehicles aren’t always predictable. That’s why Firestone Direct offers service appointments in between your regular maintenance schedule. If a vehicle needs urgent attention, we can have someone out as soon as the next day to address the issue.
After you have an established maintenance routine in place, it’s easy to scale our services to make sure your entire fleet stays on the road to support your growing business.
When you work with Firestone Direct, you can feel confident that an expert mechanic or team of mechanics is thoroughly inspecting each and every vehicle. Our full fleet inspections help streamline your maintenance needs and help you stay organized and on top of repairs, maximizing up time and saving you money. That way, you have more time and energy to focus on what matters most—running your business.
