The City of Fayetteville, N.C., has signed a 10-year fleet maintenance contract with Vector Fleet Management. The contract includes two five-year extensions and began July 1.
At the heart of this contract is a new 41,000 square-foot fleet facility. It encompasses four key elements including automotive workshop infrastructure, tooling/fabrication, administrative offices/customer waiting area, and parking/storage, and accommodates a variety of different vehicle sizes and weights.
The City of Fayetteville’s fleet, consisting of fire rescue apparatus, police cars, emergency vehicles, heavy trucks and equipment, snow plows, lawn maintenance equipment, bucket trucks, and refuse trucks, will be serviced through the facility’s specialized lifts and repair bays, each of which have been specially designed for maintaining these types of vehicles. The facility also has six automotive/SUV/light truck lifts and two medium/heavy duty truck lifts.
Additionally, a total of 22 new repair bays — 12 for automobiles and light trucks, six for medium- and heavy-duty trucks, and four for specialized refuse trucks and equipment repair services — have been established.
Under its new contract, Vector Fleet carries the responsibility of performing not only maintenance and repair duties, but state inspections and diagnostic procedures as well. The company will also be maintaining a large and diverse parts inventory while utilizing its fleet management information system to monitor workforce productivity.
