Leaseplan van

The importance of making time for daily van checks


Faulty vehicles are the bane of every fleet operator. They can cost your business a lot of time and money while you wait for them to be fixed. In fact, the cost of having a van off the road can be as much as £1000 per day.

Even worse, they can cause accidents involving your drivers. According to the latest government figures, vehicle defects contributed to 1,687 accidents and 2,586 causalities on Britain’s roads in 2016.
