CVIP versus Preventative Maintenance
It’s not always easy to maintain a single vehicle that gets used every day, let alone an entire fleet of them. Between dust and debris, bad driving conditions, extreme temperatures, and just plain old wear and tear, it won’t take long to run into trouble somewhere if you’re not keeping up with inspections! Today we’re going to talk about two similar maintenance and inspection routines – different, but each necessary in their own way.
The first one is the CVIP, or Commercial Vehicle Inspection Program. These mandatory inspections have high standards, set by the government, and are intended to ensure that any vehicle on the road is actually worthy of being there! They check out your brakes, steering, structural integrity, emissions systems, and the other parts of your vehicle that keep it running smoothly.
