YourMechanic, a mobile vehicle repair network, announced a new fleet maintenance solution to solve the top challenges facing today's fleet managers at the NAFA Fleet Management Association 2017 Institute and Expo in Tampa, Fla.
The new solution covers light-duty commercial vehicles up to Class 3 (10,000 to 14,000 pounds) and medium-duty Class 4 (up to 16,000 pounds), and aims to address many challenges facing fleet managers by offering flexible service packages, including on-demand repair delivered directly to the fleet of vehicles, eliminating time and cost to transport out-of-commission vehicles. YourMechanic is also offering preventive maintenance solutions to potential future costs.
"In developing our product, we learned that today's fleet managers are faced with many roadblocks -- budget constraints, variable maintenance needs, labor shortages -- with limited solutions available," said Rob Francis, senior director of Growth for YourMechanic. "Our fleet product is the first of several business-to-business solutions we will be launching this year to augment our consumer business, supported by our nationwide network of experienced, certified mobile mechanics and parts suppliers."
YourMechanic recently completed a pilot program with fleet managers and developed a full product line from the program insights. All offerings deliver mobile mechanics, which dramatically reduces downtime and eliminates the need to transport vehicles to a shop or dealership.
