How To Maintain A Leased Truck
We know that leasing is often more affordable and easier than owning a vehicle, however, very few people know how to take care of a leased vehicle and some often end up neglecting it because they don’t “own” it.
Important Points to Consider When Truck Leasing
If you are planning to lease a truck then it’s important that you know how to maintain it. Here are a few tips to remember:
#1 Treat It As Your Own
This is the most important tip. Treat the leased truck as if you own it and provide it the care you’d provide to any other vehicle in your fleet, i.e.: keep it neat and clean, wash it as needed, and avoid driving on bad roads or in poor weather conditions.
#2 Check the Tires
Trucks have to travel long distances and often cover uneven or muddy roads, which can put pressure on the tires. It is important that you pay special attention to the tires and ensure they remain in good condition. This will not only help maintain the vehicle but also increase productivity/mileage and make it more affordable to own the truck.
The owner will typically inspect the tires before leasing the truck; however, you may have to consider replacing the tires or contacting the leasing company if you intend to keep the vehicle for an extended period of time. Other than this, rotate the tire regularly and ensure they are properly inflated at all times.
#3 Get Regularly Scheduled Oil Changes
Stay on top of scheduled maintenance and perform oil changes every 3,000 to 10,000 miles. It is best that you get in touch with the leasing company to understand the vehicle better and how often it needs oil changes.
Other than this, try to avoid smoking in the car and take other precautions to protect the accessories and upholstery.
