Owning a fleet of any size in today’s climate of fluctuating fuel and operating costs means business owners have to make the right decisions to remain competitive and in business.
What is Fleet Management?
Fleet management is made up of a range of products, services and functions to help improve the overall efficiency of fleets by minimising risk and reducing costs.
Even if you own the vehicles in your fleet, or you lease with another provider, VEHTEC can still provide a fleet management service to meet your needs so you’ve got more time to focus on your core business.
Our fleet services include:
Servicing, Maintenance, Asset Tracking
Optimal Life Modelling and Ownership Threshold Analysis
Fleet valuations, strategic procurement and salvage
Fleet Management Software
Pre purchase inspection
Fleet Configuration, Rationalisation and Asset Management
Let us help you to make effective timely business decisions. We can help you to understand your fleet options, what to buy, what to sell, what is available and when to change fleet over.
Our services include
Preparation of fleet specific optimal life models
Fleet Usage analysis, efficiency and benchmarking
Buying, selling and/or designing a replacement strategy
VEHTEC will perform routine asset management analysis on the fleet utilisation as a whole and prepare recommendations for purchase, disposal or relocation of fleet.
This detailed assessment will allow you to rationalise your fleet and establish a vehicle, plant & equipment replacement schedule.
Servicing and Maintenance, Total transparency, No Additional Costs
Our service is completely transparent because our customers only ever pay what we pay. Our customers pay a management fee each month, but when we charge any repairs to customers, there are no mark-ups or early settlement discounts.
It can sometimes be frustrating trying to get your vehicle booked in for servicing or repair work. But our Service Direct team are here to make it a lot easier. We proactively book work and manage downtime.
Simply contact VEHTEC by phone or complete our online Work Booking Form and we’ll organise a local supplier repair and get you booked in. When downtime is unavoidable we will take the stress out of the situation and assist in sourcing a replacement vehicle, or alternative repairer that minimises the impact on your operations.
When it is time for your next scheduled service, we’ll provide you a little reminder. And for those clients who want to minimise off-road time as much as possible, we can provide an enhanced Downtime Management service.

Optimal Life Modelling
The total cost of fleet ownership is an important aspect of business decision making.
We have extensive experience in preparing optimal life models for a whole range of heavy vehicles, plant and equipment.
Our Whole Life Cost modelling tool helps to show the true cost of running a vehicle. It takes account of all your costs, rather than simply the cost of Contract Hire rentals, so it provides you with a much more accurate analysis of vehicle fleet costs.
VEHTEC will conduct a thorough review of your vehicle policy and identify the true cost of your company vehicles. We’ll help you build a vehicle policy that’s based on the principles of total cost of ownership, to establish actual recovery methodology to ensure that ad-hoc maintenance that is clearly not fair wear and tear is identified and addressed quickly within your accounting system.
By using our sophisticated modelling tools, we can help you transform your company fleet plan by making it more tax efficient, flexible and cost effective. We will recommend the best time to change over fleet items and provide a whole of procurement solution if needed.
Benefits of Whole Life Costs
Significant savings on fleet costs
More accurate vehicle costs
Simple and transparent policy decisions
Enhanced driver awareness
Better salvage returns and lower changeover costs.
Fleet Management Software
Fleet Management need not be a timely administrative drain on your business.
In this extreme software landscape where possible fleet management software solutions are as wide and varied, we recommend the use of Fleet Track to manage all your fleet cost, servicing and calibration requirements.
