Five ways that Hidrive can improve your business in 2020. Give your business a quantum leap forward in 2020 with a fleet of Hidrive Service Bodies.

Fleet managers and business owners have a lot to consider when it comes to buying fleet vehicles. Things like vehicle type and procurement, health and safety, fuel management, vehicle maintenance and meeting compliance standards to name a few.

These considerations are all interrelated and ultimately shape fleet buying decisions for companies right across Australia. Majority of service industries, government departments and corporate fleets in Australia will choose utes for their fleet vehicles, as utes check majority of the boxes, from the requirements listed above and many more.

Utes are highly practical, as well as, safe and compliant vehicles. Utes improve working efficiencies, productivity and provide economical cost of life benefits for businesses.

If your fleet is made up predominately of utes or you are thinking about purchasing a fleet of utes for your business, this article is for you.

Hidrive can enhance ute fleets, that are already cost-effective and functional, creating driving efficiencies for your workforce.

Hidrive provide big opportunities from start to finish by engaging with key stakeholders early on. Hidrive have an easy solution for fleet managers and provide the expertise to build customised fleet solutions that help businesses to eliminate day-to-day problems.

Firstly, an onsite visit to the fleet management organisation, business owner, fleet manager or field service manager with a Hidrive demonstrator vehicle for review and inspection.

During this visit a Hidrive representative will listen and learn about your operational needs. The more the Hidrive representative knows upfront about your business’ pain points, the better the outcome Hidrive can produce to alleviate those problems.

Hidrive expertise has helped manage positive outcomes for clients relating to costing and budgets, reliability, Workplace Health & Safety (WHS), environmental issues, compliance (fit for purpose) and managing delivery timelines.

Hidrive make sure to manufacture service bodies to your business’ specifications. Building the service body to your business’ advised compliance requirements goes a long way to making sure that all your vehicles are safe and compliant.

The report contains vital information that is required to ensure the vehicle is roadworthy and registered correctly, recording the front and rear axle weight and the overall vehicle tare weight.
