Service, Maintenance & Repair
Service, maintenance and repair (SMR) costs are one of the key influencers in compiling total cost of ownership figures, which is the key barometer for vehicle selection.
It therefore makes sense to minimise annual SMR spend by selecting the most cost-effective vehicles for fleet operation.
Additionally, fleet managers must decide where they are going to have their vehicles serviced and repaired – franchised dealers, a local independent garage or a fast-fit. The choice is plentiful and the competition intense.
