Fleet Maintenance Trends in 2021
The Fleet Management Industry anticipates an increase in recommendations of repairs and the costs of unscheduled services throughout 2021. Repair facilities are businesses and they need to try to maintain their business and cover their expenditures. This may lead to more thorough inspections and more items being recommended, along with the associated price increases.
Another factor that may play a bigger issue in 2021 is that vehicle service lives are being extended as companies right-size their fleets or look to reduce new-vehicle acquisition budgets brought forth by the pandemic.
