Of all the aspects of managing a successful moving company, fleet management is one of the most important — and the most time-consuming. Moving fleets are the backbone of all moving companies, allowing movers to safely and securely transport their customers’ objects from one place to another. If your moving company’s fleet is not operating at a high level, and is not coordinated precisely, it is nearly impossible to move your customers’ belongings from point A to point B. That’s why MoveitPro™ has designed an invaluable feature in our moving company software that allows moving companies to streamline each and every aspect of fleet management. Read on to learn about the benefits moving companies in the U.S. and Canada can gain from using the Top Rated Local® moving software to manage a moving fleet.
How Can Fleet Management Software Help Your Business?
What Is Fleet Management?
Fleet management is essential to any moving company in the United States, Canada, and beyond. Managing fleets combine management skills with administrative skills, allowing moving companies to coordinate their moving trucks and other commercial vehicles with the ultimate goal of improving the efficiency of each move, reducing costs, providing real-time tracking, upholding safety and security, and adhering to local, state, and national transportation guidelines. Here are some of the benefits offered by MoveitPro’s moving company software fleet management feature.
Fleet Management and Scheduling
MoveitPro offers communication features that enhance the flow of information between moving company managers, points of contact, dispatchers, moving crews, and support staff. What’s more, the comprehensive scheduling feature allows managers and employees to schedule and view fleet schedules, which is crucial for keeping track of moving jobs to ensure the availability of a moving truck. This feature also helps keep track of different size moving trucks to make the move more time- and cost-effective for both the moving company and the client.
One of the best ways to ensure cost and time efficiency, provide accurate moving estimates, and fair final charges for the customer is tracking your fleet mileage. Having an effective mileage tracking strategy for your moving company’s fleet can reduce costs associated with transportation. But who has time to track mileage the old fashion way — using a pen and paper? In today’s fast-paced world, keeping track of fleet mileage on paper can cost you time and money. Not only does paper-based mileage tracking get messy, but it can also lead to human error, loss of information, and lost time in trying to find that one note one of your movers jotted down on a sticky note in hurry. Forget the days of old! Paperless mileage tracking is the most efficient, secure, and reliable way to keep track of mileage.
Maintenance Work Orders
If you want to keep your fleet operating properly, fleet maintenance is essential for your moving company. Maintaining everything from windshield and tire repairs to regular oil and brake changes can not only keep your fleet functioning at a high level, but it also helps enhance the safety of your moving crews and other drivers. What’s more, a properly maintained fleet helps ensure a safe, secure move for your customers’ belongings. Once again, keeping track of maintenance work orders for a moving fleet on paper gets complicated, especially for large-scale moving companies with numerous fleets. MoveitPro makes it easy to schedule and track maintenance work orders on one, intuitive platform that both managers and employees can use.
