Maintenance for the Public Sector

At Essential Fleet Services we have a 42 year history of funding and maintaining vehicles for clients across the Public Sector, working with 43 local authorities, and a wide range of housing associations, education establishments and charities.

A core part of our service provision is the safe, compliant and cost effective maintenance of a wide range of vehicles, everything from car derived vans to HGVs, delivered by our 15 in-house workshops.

Optimising your fleet through contract maintenance

Maintenance bay

We know you need to get the most out of your fleet as your vehicles provide essential front line services to your residents and customers. Therefore, in addition to our highly competitive contract hire funding, we’re focused on maximising the availability of vehicles for our public sector customers. We use carefully planned inspection and servicing schedules to drive preventative maintenance to keep all your vehicles in reliable working order and prevent downtime caused by breakdowns or non-compliance issues.

The schedules include long-term service plans for each vehicle, providing forward visibility for our team and customers. Vehicles are booked in for servicing appointments at least 10 days prior to an inspection, service or test and we can arrange for the collection of the vehicles and supply a similar replacement vehicle where needed.

National network 

Our Essential maintenance is delivered by our network of 15 in-house workshops, supported by a third party network of 60+ service centres. This unique network ensures we can service our customer’s diverse range of specialist vehicles, including Gritters, RCV’s, sweepers and gully emptiers to the very highest standards. All of our technicians are highly trained and experienced in working on HGVs and specialist vehicles.

We also have a great partnership with third-party maintenance providers, so our infrastructure means we will be close to you, wherever you are in the country.

We heavily invest in our service centres to ensure the highest maintenance standards delivered by the best workshop environment with the very best equipment. Our newest site in Trafford Park, replacing our existing site in Urmston, will open in July ’17 with a year one investment in excess of £400k.

Essential Fleet have relationships with 43 councils throughout the UK for the provision of contract hire, workshop management, maintenance and rental solutions.
