It is often nerve-wracking to take your vehicle in for repairs, especially if you are unfamiliar with the company. However, sometimes life just happens, and it is necessary. Do not be too alarmed, though. There are several perks to onsite fleet and vehicle repairs.
1- Time. When you own a vehicle or many fleet vehicles, it is likely that you have many places to go. Chances are that the shop is not a place you had planned on. Especially if you have fleet vehicles, the faster you can get your car up and running again, the more money you will make.
Instead of taking your vehicle all the way to the shop, it may be worth your time to have an on-site repairman come. These trained technicians are armed with machines to diagnose problems quickly, and the know-how to fix said problems without needing to return to the shop. Depending on the severity of the problem, it may become necessary, however.
2- Cost. It has been said that on-site repair services are often more expensive than taking your vehicle to a shop. Though this is not always true, it is important to remember that the technicians are coming out of their way to find you and your vehicle. In addition to simply getting to you, they also must have the proper machinery to diagnose problems and fix them promptly.
More often than not, problems are fixed in a more timely manner on-site than in the shop, which really is worth the cost. If it is a fleet vehicle, depending on your business, it is possible to calculate the amount of money you make or lose for every minute of the day. Weigh your options to see if the time you would save in on-site repairs is worth the cost.
3- Technicians With Know How. Let's be honest: technicians and repairmen who work in on-site repairs are usually the best. It is difficult to be able to diagnose and repair a problem out of the shop, and not just anyone is capable of such craftsmanship. Though many in the shop are quite capable themselves, some shops send their best men out into the field in order to be able to solve whatever problems they encounter. Do not just trust your car to anyone. Look for the best. The more knowledgable the repairman, the better.
