When your business depends on your van in order to function, anything that goes wrong with it can be disastrous. The key is to avoid this problem is to stay on top of the maintenance by checking the van regularly and chaging oil, filters, and tires as often as recommended by the user manual.
There are several options for maintenance, and one way can be to have a maintenance guy under contract and on call as and when required. This is a preferable way to do it if you have a one van or a small fleet of vans.

In this case, it is likely that at any given time one van will possibly need maintenance. While hiring someone to care for your van/s can be costly, it can actually save money in the long run because you will not be paying for expensive repairs if the van is properly maintained. Those who don’t check their vehicle regularly tend to allow problems to continue until the van is no longer drivable.

The most common aspects of maintenance include changing the oil, tires, and filters. Another thing is to make sure that all of the machinery is in good working order. There are basic guidlines that should be followed an example is :-

“oil should be changed every 3,000-5,000 miles and tires should be rotated every 6,000-10,000 miles”

However, there will definitely be varying guidelines depending on the van’s age, quality and the amount of wear that the van has endured on a daily basis.

Also an added benefit to keeping your van in good shape is that a properly maintained van will be more fule efficient for example, low tire pressure results in higher fuel consumption. Though it might seem that maintenance is expensive, the fact of the matter is that the lack of maintenance can actually cost you in the end.
