Prestige Fleet Servicing, which provides vehicle servicing, maintenance and repair work to leasing and fleet management companies and corporate fleets, has launched a mobile servicing product to help fleets cut vehicle downtime.

‘Prestige Mobile Servicing’ has already been field-tested with a number of fleet clients, and received a positive response.

Explaining the move, Prestige commercial director Joe Bhamra said: “While our static network continues to grow in line with our expansion plans, we also wanted to be able to offer our fleet customers a mobile solution on a national level, coordinated through our operations centre in Melton Mowbray.”

Service and maintenance controllers at the company’s operations centre will be able to make the decision whether a company driver required a mobile service or if the work could be handled routinely within one of the network’s service centres. This is based on the nature of the work involved, its complexity and the amount of time required to get the vehicle back on the road. 

“While this is essentially a service that we think will be most suited to light commercial fleets, it will also be relevant to company cars as well,” Bhamra added. “But we will rely on the expertise and professionalism of our controllers to determine which is the best course of action for the work involved – static or mobile.”
