It is essential for you and your fleet to feel covered if anything should go wrong or to keep your vehicle maintained to make sure nothing does!
At VM Vehicle Maintenance, we offer maintenance contracts to keep you on the road and to make sure you get back on it as quickly and safely as possible should you come off it.
The Services We Offer…
Research has suggested that 4 in 10 motorists do not regularly check the condition of their tyres. This is a worrying statistic, as driving with illegal tyres carries a £2,500 fine and 12 points on your driving licence.
The minimum tread depth is of tyres is 1.6mm but experts have stated that a 3mm tread depth gives the optimum performance of the tyre.
The lower the tread depth on your tyres, the less grip you have and the higher the distance required for stopping. This can be particularly dangerous during the winter weather conditions.
We offer a tyre-check service to make sure that you make good contact with the road and not another road user!
Tyre Replacement and Punctures
Tyres get worn with age and use but other factors such as: emergency braking; incorrect tyre inflation; incorrect wheel alignment; poor road surfacing; and driving over debris.
VM Vehicle Maintenance contracts will include the replacement of any tyre if it has been worn or damaged. This tyre replacement service also includes punctures to the tyres.
Once you have entered into a maintenance contract with VM Vehicle Maintenance, the driver of the vehicle will be provided with a card that can be shown to any branch of National Tyres or ATS for the replacement of the damaged or worn tyre(s).
Please Note: Worn tyres will be replaced below 2mm tread depth. Any sidewall damage to the tyre will not be covered in the maintenance contract for wear and tear or punctures. In the event of alloy or sidewall damage, the company or driver will be liable.
Sometimes the unavoidable happens. If it does, we want to make sure you are covered. That is why if your vehicle breaks down anywhere in the UK, including at home, we will be there to help.
The service we provide and the partners we work with always aim to get you going again at the roadside where it is safe to do so. However, if this is not possible, we will use a vehicle garage within a 10 mile radius of where you are.
This service comes as standard when you join us with a VM Vehicle Maintenance contract.
Whether you are at fault or not- you will be covered by our VM Vehicle Maintenance contract. That means you can call our helpline 24 hours a day and 365 days of the year- so you are never on your own.
It is all about helping people out at VM Vehicle Maintenance, so we will always put the driver and passengers first. This means ensuring we get out to you as fast as possible.
Likewise with our breakdown assistance, our partners will aim to get you going again at the roadside. If this is not legal or safe to do so, we will recover your vehicle and aim to get you and your cargo back on track.
Whilst your repairs are taking place, we offer a courtesy vehicle free of charge- so you will not be waiting long.
During this time, insurance claims will be made on your behalf and legal assistance can be provided if the accident was not your fault. We want to take all the stress out of the situation for you and give you the peace of mind you need to carry on!
When it comes to giving your vehicle back, it is important that it returns in the condition the leasing company expect. Any damage to the vehicle will mean financial penalties to you or your company.
At VM Vehicle Maintenance, we can arrange for a de-fleet inspector to take a look at your vehicle before it returns to the lease company. The inspector can also provide quotes for work including (but not limited to): scuffed alloy wheels; dents; and scratches.
Repairing this type of damage prior to handing-back will be a cheaper alternative than stumping-up for the lease company’s charges.
Benefits of using our de-fleeting partner include:
- Use of approved British Standard repairers across the UK
- Agreed SMART menu prices
- Mobile service (available at your home or workplace)
- Daily repair-progress updates
- Set up-front inspection cost of £25 (+ VAT) which will be deducted from the cost of any repairs carried out.
The de-fleet inspection service offers you certainty that your vehicle will be all in order before it goes back- so you know there will not be any surprise charges.
VM Vehicle Maintenance can arrange this service for you on request.
