When you see advertisements for an onsite fleet repair service, you probably think that this service only provides repair service for your fleet trucks while they are in the garage. While that is partly true, these services do more that just provide service for the trucks while they are sitting in your fleet's garage. Here are a few other places where it is just as easy to get onsite repair service when your trucks need it.
At Truck Stops
When your driver calls to tell you that a truck has broken down, you want to know that A) the truck is in a safe place, and B) that the driver intends to stay put. Usually, truck drivers will pull into a truck stop for lunch or supper, only to discover that the truck they are driving has something wrong with it. If your driver informs you that the truck he/she was driving is in need of repair just to get back to the garage and that he/she is now at a truck stop, then a fleet repair service can meet your driver at the truck stop and do the repairs there.
Alongside the Road or at a Rest Stop
Onsite repairs can also occur alongside the road if the repairs are minor, or at a rest stop if the truck and its driver have managed to pull off and park safely there. Anywhere the driver can safely park the truck, the repair service can find the driver and the truck and complete the work there. In addition to making repairs in these locations, your fleet benefits from the fact that the trucks do not have to call for heavy-duty towing services, nor does your truck have to go to a fleet truck repair garage.
On the Street in the City
If you are really fortunate, your fleet truck will break down within the city limits. Since most fleet trucks have rounds and/or work locations pre-planned, it is easy to order onsite repair service and send it to the truck's current location. It is easier to manage these services with the truck stalled or stopped on a city street because the truck is already parked somewhere safe. As for blocking traffic, the truck probably already blocks a little traffic, so sending an onsite service to make repairs is not going to hamper the flow of traffic around the fleet truck itself.
