With statistics from the DVSA showing that 49% of 3-3.5 tonne LCVs failed a Class VII MOT in 2014-15, the free advice booklet will focus on the steps that need to be considered by van fleet operators to maximise uptime.
As well as the common causes of MOT failure, the booklet also explores the importance of tyre maintenance, component checks and looks at the importance of choosing the correct fleet service provider, all aimed at supporting van operators maximise their fleet uptime.
Peter Fairlie, ATS Euromaster’s group sales director, said: “Vehicles that pass their MoT first time maximise their uptime. Given 3-3.5 tonne vans have the lowest first time pass rate of any class of vehicle, we want to help fleets to tackle this serious issue head-on. With their own expert knowledge and now tips and advice from ATS Euromaster, van operators will be better placed to maximise their uptime – and potentially avoid costly MOT-related issues.”
