Streamlined vehicle inspection services to benefit end-user fleets

New thinking on vehicle inspection services could bring benefits to end-user fleets while also helping to cut costs for fleet operators such as leasing firms.

Nick Chadaway, managing director, DMN Logistics

According to vehicle movement specialists DMN, its new Inspect & Collect service could potentially add £500 back into the value chain for fleet operators while also speeding up the time taken with collections for end-user fleets.

DMN’s Inspect & Collect service uses the company’s MIVIS real-time automotive solutions app, allowing trained personnel to image any vehicle damage, obtain a signature at the point of inspection and immediately remove a vehicle from the client’s location. The service includes a real time, fully configurable damage and charge matrix, and ensures all inspections are date, time stamped and geotagged.

According to the firm, the streamlined services can speed up the time taken for the vehicle to be remarketed in what the firm says has traditionally been a dysfunctional series of loosely linked events, cutting costs for the fleet owner value chain.

Commenting on the benefits for end-users, the firm added: “With nationwide coverage, DMN Inspect & Collect removes the subjectivity from the inspection process to ensure operations work transparently and in harmony, giving peace of mind to the end-user. This inspection ensures that any vehicles delivered to the end-user are as expected with no surprise or unexpected complications/damage to the vehicle.

“At DMN, their drivers are the face of the company and therefore the end-user will communicate with a highly presented individual that is both highly trained and can answer questions upon arrival. DMN’s staff will also offer as much support as necessary.”
