5 signs it's time to upgrade your company vehicles

Mark Schneider | 26/10/2017 11:13:09 AM

If a week is a long time in politics, five years can be an eternity in the development of car technology. It's moving at a breathtaking pace. Features that once seemed unimaginably advanced, such as blind spot detection and adaptive cruise control will soon be standard equipment on even the cheapest vehicles. If you run a business then it pays to keep up-to-date with the latest vehicles, not just because you're missing out on the latest features on offer, but because those older v...

Cindy Anthony - Marketing Assistant | 15/10/2017 8:50:21 AM

A successful company who depends on the efficient running of their fleet requires vehicles which are reliable and safe – that some older models do not demonstrate. But before you go in search of your perfect new addition, you need to think about how you are going to finance it. This raises that age old chestnut; is it better to buy or to lease? Buying When you buy you pay for the entire cost of a vehicle and acquire full ownership. Pros One day you will be free of ca...

Fuel cards are the cornerstone of effective fleet management, as they allow drivers to charge fuel directly to your business with no need for petty cash and easier invoicing. Although fuel cards offer many benefits, it is important to be careful of possible fees, charges and inconvenience that can quickly wipe away any benefits. Shopping around to choose the best fuel card system for you can save you a lot of time and money in the long run compared to the wrong solution. ...

Tyre Maintenance For Fleet Managers

Rory Deegan - Online Marketing Coordinator | 5/09/2017 10:23:40 AM

Ok today we’re going to talk to you about tyres, the presentation is 40 minutes long and we have tea, coffee and pastries for you guys”. Those were the words of a supplier of ours who was showing us his company’s new tyre range. I remember thinking that 40 minutes was a hell of a lot of time to talk about tyres, I mean how much can be said about black rubber circles? How wrong I was. I left the meeting convinced that there must be hundreds of fleet managers who are wrongly w...

Misfuelling your car – a costly mistake

Jess Wallace | 8/03/2017 10:02:44 AM

Putting the wrong fuel into your car can be a massive mistake. If the vehicle is driven, the engine can seize and parts of the fuel system may be destroyed. It can easily result in a write-off due to parts costs. At Fleetcare, on average, a maintenance controller will take around 3 calls a week regarding misfuelling. A diesel input hole in a vehicle is bigger than a petrol input hole, so more than likely these calls have been regarding a client misfuelling a diesel car. The pump for di...

Mark Schneider | 2/03/2017 12:20:32 PM

If you own a business then you’ve got better things to do than keeping track of hundreds of separate invoices for fuel.

Can your business save money with fuel cards

Cindy Anthony - Marketing Assistant | 27/02/2017 10:49:44 AM

With the cost of living constantly going up, who wants to spend extra money on rising fuel costs? I certainly don’t. And I imagine most business owners would agree, especially those who own fleets of vehicles.

A popular solution amongst fleet owners for reducing monthly fuel expenses is fuel cards. How exactly do fuel cards work? Fuel cards work by ...

Mark Schneider | 6/04/2016 4:01:15 PM

If you run a business then it pays to take a careful systematic approach to fleet management, rather than doing things in an ad-hoc manner. After all, the cost in time and money of purchasing fuel, buying, selling and maintaining vehicles, registration, insurance, FBT compliance, and the many other concerns with running a fleet can be a major drain on your energy when you’re just trying to get on with business.
