Reasons To Use A Fleet Management Service As An Owner-Operator

Construction & Contractors Blog

When many people think about fleet management services, they think about the companies that work with large-scale trucking operations to help with things like truck maintenance. However, even if you are an owner-operator who only has one rig to worry about, you might find that working with one of these companies is a good idea. These are a few reasons why.

Ensure Your Rig is Properly Maintained

First and foremost, it's probably important to you to make sure that your commercial truck is properly maintained. This is critical for safety and proper operation, and it can help you maintain the lifespan of your rig as well, therefore saving you a lot of money. With the help of a fleet management service, you can help ensure that your truck is maintained as it should be.

Keep Better Paperwork

Keeping paperwork related to the maintenance that you have had done to your semi-truck is critical. You may need this paperwork if you sell your truck, for example. Plus, having this paperwork can help you track the expenses that you incur as an owner-operator and can help you have a better idea of when certain maintenance tasks need to be done.

Save Yourself Time and Stress

As an owner-operator, you probably have a lot of stress already. After all, owning or leasing your own rig and doing all of the driving yourself can be a big job that might take you away from your home and family on a regular basis. Of course, maintaining your semi-truck is a big part of working as an owner-operator, but it can take up a lot of your limited time as well.

If you work with a fleet management service, however, you will not have to worry about taking care of all of these things on your own. This can give you a little more time to focus on other things when you have time off, such as spending time with your family.

Of course, some fleet management services are accustomed to working with larger operations. However, some companies will happily work with an owner-operator to help them maintain one truck or a small fleet. If you call around or do your research online, you can find out more about the fleet management companies in your area and can find one that is a good fit for your small business.

Pool House Parties: Building Your Backyard Escape

When I decided to turn my backyard into a pool and spa space, I wanted to have a pool house built. Adding a pool house would give me somewhere for everyone to shower and change without tracking pool water and dirt into the main house. I worked with a local contractor to construct a pool house with an outdoor kitchen, outdoor showers, and full indoor restroom facilities as well as a game room and changing rooms. I created this site to journal the process so that I could hopefully inspire others to do the same. I hope this site takes some of the mystery out of the construction process for you so you can build the backyard structure you've always wanted.
