Your commercial vehicle takes a lot of beating as it hauls goods for your construction business. Preventative maintenance is crucial as it keeps your vehicle running smoothly and not doing it would lead to a lot of problems down the road. These include breakdowns and delays that will impact your business negatively. In this article, we will be looking at why such preventative maintenance is so important.  

It Prevents Disruption of Business 

Vehicles that are not serviced regularly face numerous issues as they remain un-serviced. These vehicles are more likely to break down and cause a pause in business operations should they break down in the middle of a project. 

It Ensures Driver and Vehicle Safety 

Businesses are liable in case of an accident, which extends to their employees if they are injured due to an accident caused by an unreliable or unsafe vehicle. The best way to know and ensure a commercial vehicle is safe and reliable is to take it for regular servicing. 

Every vehicle has a service schedule, and you should always take your vehicle to be inspected and serviced when that date comes. Keeping your vehicles serviced and having service records can help you in case of an accident as you can show the vehicle was safe to be on the road. 

It Helps You Comply with the Law 

The roadworthiness of all vehicles is crucial, and commercial vehicles must be tested every year. An MOT test checks that the vehicle is safe and meets crucial environmental standards. While there are some exceptions, all vehicles need to be tested on the third anniversary of their registration and every year after that. 

All persons and businesses should take their vehicles to an MOT center for these checks, but some centers will collect the vehicle for you. Vehicles that are not serviced regularly will not pass these tests which means they should not be on the road. You can book your MOT through approved service centers that will also do the servicing required for your vehicle to pass. 

It Saves You Money 

Servicing a vehicle regularly costs money, but it does save you money in the long term. Serviced vehicles run better and are more efficient, which means they use less fuel than their un-serviced counterparts. 
Additionally, you will pay a lot more if your commercial vehicle breaks down due to not being serviced regularly and on time. 
Third, you also save your business money by decreasing the likelihood of the vehicle being involved in an accident. If this happens, you have to pay for the repairs or buy a new vehicle before it is time to do so.  
Even in cases where the insurance will pay for the vehicle and liability that arises from an accident, the insurance company will likely increase your premiums since they see you and your business as riskier customers. 
Ensuring your commercial vehicles are serviced regularly is about safety, but beyond that, it is also about saving your business money. Numerous service centers will happily take care of your commercial vehicles, even going as far as ensuring they pass MOT tests.
