ATS Euromaster is reporting a 10% growth in its Mastercare LCV fleet inspection service over the past 12 months.
As a result, it says it is now inspecting more than 2,500 vehicles per month.
Covid-19 has helped drive demand from customers needing to keep their fleets on the road more than ever. With vehicles performing business critical roles, it says it is essential fleet managers maximise uptime by having the full picture of their fleet’s health, identifying risks and issues well in advance.
Gordon Robertson, mobile area operations manager for ATS Euromaster, said: “Mastercare inspections provide fleet managers with a regular snapshot of their fleet’s tyre health on a set basis whether that be monthly or bi-monthly.
“Any work that needs to be carried out is proactively highlighted resulting in the opportunity to reduce LCV downtime within fleets.”
The pre-planned service involves correcting tyre work, worn, puncture or turn on rims, and where applicable, will indicate misalignment that can be rectified in their centres, says ATS.
Robertson continued: “With Mastercare, fleet managers of light vehicles benefit from a complete real-time view of their fleet’s tyre conditions, access planned or recommended remedial work as well as historical data by fleet, vehicle or wheel and view a list of vehicles yet to be inspected.
“Fleet managers have seen the benefits of this service and we expect to see continual growth in Mastercare especially as fleets get back on the road post-lockdown as they look to minimise the additional costs associated with vehicle maintenance.”
Mastercare aims to keep vehicles moving by reducing the risk of vehicle tyre-related breakdowns and associated downtime.
