Real Business Magazine is the place to go online when you’re looking for business tips, news and events – and general guidance on how to get the most out of your small or medium enterprise.
In particular, they’ve recently started publishing a series of advice articles on how to manage your company vehicle fleet.
Knowing that he’s organically grown a business without outside funding – a business which currently has a fleet of over 300 vehicles in operation – they asked Fantastic Services CEO and Co-Founder Rune Sovndahl for some thoughts and input.
If you’re looking for advice on your first startup, on entrepreneurship in particular, or on running your small or medium business in general, Real Business magazine is well worth checking out. To be asked to contribute to them once again is a real pleasure.
Fleet ownership is something that Fantastic Services has adopted a somewhat hybrid approach to, so we’re well-informed about the various options you might be considering. As Fantastic CEO Rune comments:
It’s all about “support[ing] our employees and franchisees the best way possible [because] we see their growth as part of our company’s growth.” Part of that is making sure that our branded vehicles and branded vans give the image of professionalism and can also be seen in order for customers to know where to go to book a service.
Company Fleet Management Tips
Real Business’s coverage of the fleet management topic is ongoing, but two of the best articles – which are well worth reading if you’re currently wondering how to tackle the issue in your own business – are:
- A guide to financing your fleet – this article covers many questions about fleet ownership that you might not necessarily have thought to ask yourself before. Is owning a vehicle necessarily better than contract hire? What if you only need those vehicles for a limited time? Or will always want an ultra-modern vehicle?
- What can you use your fleet for – this piece talks about how to take stock of what you actually want out of your fleet, and how to get it. It also talks generally about the recent spread of the fleet phenomenon into industries which might have previously not required vehicle ownership or access.
