Vehicle Fleet Management

First Five Management & Associates, Inc.


A full service is necessary at least one full week before a journey

Last Minute Checks
Engine, oil, brake and clutch fluids, battery electrolyte, tire pressure, spare tire, and the windshield washer reservoir should be rechecked just before a journey

Spare Kit
Delays caused by minor faults can be reduced by taking a small spare kit comprising of a fan belt, radiator hoses, spark plugs and a roll of electrical tapes

The load should be balanced , that is heavy articles should be placed as near to the center of the car as possible.
Heavy articles should not be concentrated on one side of the vehicle, neither must luggage impede the drivers vision or prevent seatbelts from being used

Inside The Car
Loose or heavy items in the passenger compartment can move under braking or cornering - this can distract the driver or jam pedal controls

Outside The Car
Roof racks must be firmly secured and loaded with as low a profile as possible to minimize the wind resistance and maintain stability. Also, make sure every-thing carried in the roof rack is securely tied down

Driving Tips in Bad Weather

  • Turn your headlight on.
  • If very severe weather, turn your hazards on.
  • Watch out for severe weather warnings before you drive.
  • When starting out in bad weather, test your brakes to see how far it takes you to stop.
  • Listen to radio traffic reports and adjust your travel plans accordingly.
  • Leave a window open a little bit to keep windshield from fogging up and to give you fresh air.
