Document the details.
Creating a custom preventative maintenance plan requires some initial information about your vehicle or vehicles. Because no two trucks are alike, it’s important to maintain documentation to ensure that your plan is effective. Keep stock of each vehicle using the following information:
Name of owner
Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)
Fleet number (if applicable)
Make, model, and year
Tire brand and size
All maintenance schedules for the vehicle
Each truck will require a different maintenance schedule based on key benchmarks such as usage, engine hours, fuel levels, and mileage. Make sure you closely monitor these indicators for each vehicle and schedule accordingly. Additionally, when possible, you can schedule opportunistically, so it’s also important to monitor routes and know when your truck will be near your preferred service station.
A good preventive maintenance plan requires routine observations and pre-trip inspections to ensure your vehicle is running properly in between appointments. It’s a good idea to create a schedule that includes regular monitoring of the following areas:
Once you have proper documentation and a general understanding of your vehicle’s health, it’s time to schedule routine service appointments. It’s a good idea to consider both seasonal factors and mileage to determine the best schedule.
