Rely on your fleet transport management company to arrange for vehicle storage. The facility must be easily accessible, have ample space to accommodate the vehicles, and offer appropriate security measures.
- Plan ahead: If a fleet manager anticipates delivery delays, they should plan ahead and arrange for a storage facility well in advance. This will ensure that the vehicles have a secure location to be stored until they can be delivered.
- Monitor delivery status: Fleet managers should stay on top of the delivery status of the new vehicles. By doing so, they can make informed decisions about when to arrange for storage, ensuring that the vehicles are not left out in the open, susceptible to damage or theft.
- Keep a contingency plan: A fleet manager should also have a contingency plan in place in case of further delays or issues with the delivery process. This plan should include details about alternative storage options, additional logistics support, and communication with stakeholders.
- Take proper care of stored vehicles: Fleet managers should ensure that the stored vehicles are well-maintained and cared for. This includes performing routine maintenance checks, such as oil changes and tire rotations, as well as keeping the vehicles clean and protected from the elements.
