How to save money running a company vehicle fleet
With company budgets tightening yet running costs still going up, Fleet Managers are looking at all possible options to save money on company car operating costs from their bottom line. How can this be done?
- Tyre Usage. Making sure that tyres are at the correct tread and inflated to the correct psi increases fuel efficiency and reduces the costs of running your fleet
- Lower emission vehicles. When replacing fleet vehicles, replace them with lower CO2 emission vehicles to take advantage of company car tax reductions.
- Pool vehicle or company car? Do your company cars need to be allocated to a specific person or can several people share a pool car? Would reductions on the number of cars affect the running of a fleet?
- Fuel Cards Do the administration fees involved in fuel cards make them a viable option for your company?
- Fuel Management Training Making sure that all drivers are trained in how to save and manage fuel will result in savings
- Negotiation. Negotiate prices on everything when running a fleet. Can you bundle certain items together?
