Barco Truck rentals exist to make your life and your job easier. When you decide to rent your fleet trucks from us, you’ll enjoy the manufacturer’s warranty on all our vehicles, as well as 24/7 roadside assistance.
However, regular fleet vehicle maintenance is important to keep your rentals working well. Keep reading to learn how maintenance works with your Barco rental.
Manufacturer’s Warranty Included
Every truck we own and operate is brand new and of the highest quality, but that doesn’t mean that manufacturer’s defects don’t show up from time to time. That’s why the manufacturer’s warranty is included for each of our rentals.
The manufacturer’s or factory warranty covers parts of the vehicle’s systems that break down due to flaws or defects in factory-installed elements. These are typically offered on new vehicles, and since those are the only types of trucks we have for you to rent in our fleet, every truck we have comes with this type of warranty included.
If a rental truck requires a repair that’s covered by the manufacturer’s warranty, we’ll help arrange everything so we can get that vehicle back on the road.
24/7 Roadside Assistance
We rent our trucks month-to-month to make it easier for you to figure out how many vehicles you need at a given time. With this kind of turnover, we want to make certain that you have the best service possible from our team. Problems can happen, and we want any customer to be able to trust that we’ll be ready and available at a moment’s notice.
That’s why we also offer 24/7 roadside assistance to every single renter of one of our trucks. This perk is available to any customer with no additional charge if they are renting a Barco Truck. Should you be in need, we’ll be ready to help you out with a gas refill, tire change, or any other similar issue.
What to Watch Out for When It Comes to Fleet Vehicle Maintenance
It’s a hassle and makes getting the job done more complicated when you have to stop everything to take care of a vehicle. Check out some fleet truck maintenance tips and suggestions for what to watch out for and be aware of with your fleet rental:
- Hire a Fleet Inspector: Consider hiring for this or a similar kind of position that will help you stay on top of the condition of the vehicles in your fleet.
- Mandatory Drive Reports: It might be useful to have your drivers fill out a driving report once they check a vehicle back in after a project or at the end of the day. This way, any potential issues can be cataloged and kept track of.
- Watch Your Tires: Tires are perhaps the most at-risk part of any vehicle. They can wear out quickly, develop a slow leak, or get punctured.
- Keep Up on Preventive Maintenance: The best truck fleet maintenance plans are proactive and not reactive, so consider setting up a schedule where every vehicle has to undergo inspection and general maintenance work every month or several months. For your Barco rentals, you’ll need to stay on top of basic maintenance such as:
- Oil changes
