Fleet Maintenance

Fleet Maintenance

You need your fleet working for you at all times. We can help you achieve that. We offer a number of services in northern Wisconsin that are carried out by our certified, expert service and repair Technicians who have years of experience performing everything from oil changes to a complete engine overhaul.

We provide convenient, cost-effective, and comprehensive services for fleet managers and companies. Preventative maintenance and repair services can usually be scheduled outside peak operation hours, allowing you to keep your vehicles on the working for you when it counts. Don't take a vehicle and driver off the road to sit and wait for service. We will work with your schedule.


We Provide Comprehensive Fleet Maintenance

Preventive Maintenance

The key is prevention.

Fluid and Filters

Fluids and filters are simultaneously the lowest cost and the most effective means of providing short-term dependability and long-term durability. Fluid maintenance means monitoring level, condition, and replacement interval.

Visual Inspection

The purpose of an inspection is to catch failures before they happen. An entry level Technician (while sorely needed in our industry) should not be your first choice for maintenance inspection. It takes a seasoned professional to know when a repair will be needed before the next inspection.


Owners manuals recommendations are one size fits all (except for the ones that describe Severe Service). Every fleet is unique and needs a customized maintenance program. Change the oil too often and you compromise the catalytic converter; extend the interval too long and you compromise the engine integrity.


Some components have factory recommended replacement intervals. These intervals may be too long or too short for your fleet’s operational environment. Also, some components do not have factory recommended replacement intervals and yet if they fail… This is one reason local customized maintenance programs are better.

Interaction between components

“For want of a nail…“ Some relatively minor parts can compromise the integrity of much more expensive components. A bad spark plug can ruin a coil causing a misfire which can destroy a catalytic converter.


Electronic Control Modules are not usually thought of as a maintenance item, but you can leverage their monitoring functions to determine when certain components are approaching their failure point.


It’s all about the Data!

A good diagnostic Technician gathers Data from the driver, the vehicle, the service information, and colleagues.

He must then understand that Data; how all the Data points converge to lead him down the most efficient diagnostic path.

And thirdly, he must apply the Data. Testing individual components takes time; the Data he gathers and understands saves time testing. Often a test is simply a confirmation of what the Technician has already determined.


The easy part.

This is the proper starting point for entry level Technicians rather than maintenance or diagnostics. There is this book called a service manual that gives step-by-step instructions on component replacement. Following procedure is the key to long lasting repair.


Liability Exposure

Detailed and understandable paperwork is an essential factor in reducing liability exposure. Full labor descriptions and part numbers provide answers to the questions that you hope you never need to get asked.

Fleet Cost Analysis

Does one rig go through brakes at twice the rate of another rig? Does one driver see tire failures more commonly than all the others? Having clear numbers allows you to evaluate vehicle, driver, and operational characteristics.

Life-cycle Expectations

The Law of Diminishing Returns shows us when it’s time to continue maintaining or replace the vehicle. Clear and understandable invoices make that job much easier.



Most drivers are well versed in the functional operation of the vehicle. Some struggle with the Federally required emissions control systems and the visual and audible warnings associated with these modern systems. We offer driver seminars to bridge the gap between the driver and the Technician.


Fleet managers have an enormous responsibility. They deal with people above them and below them. Plus they deal with the most complex generation of vehicles ever manufactured. Our Critical Thinking Skills Training covers character traits, communication skills, and overview of automotive technical principles.

Accounting Departments

One of the main questions facing fleets today is which vehicle to purchase. The goal is to purchase a vehicle that performs the task required, provides the driver/operator with comfort and confidence, and does so economically. We know vehicles.

Are you ready to talk to us?

Here are some questions we will ask you.

  • Do you operate in a urban or rural environment?
  • Do you operate cross country, regionally, or locally?
  • What is your expected life cycle? In years? In miles?
  • What is your average daily run in miles?
  • Do you need four wheel drive? If so, do you need it on every vehicle?
  • Is your maintenance and repair contracted out or performed in house?
