During Memorial Day weekend, which is often considered the unofficial start of summer, millions of Americans embark on road trips for vacations or family visits. This year, the number of Memorial Day road trips is expected to rise by 6% compared to last year, with 37.1 million Americans driving to their destinations, an increase of over 2 million people. For fleet managers, this surge in demand poses a significant challenge in dealing with fleet overflow, as they must ensure their vehicles are well-maintained and prepared for the road.

The heightened demand places substantial pressure on fleet vehicles, resulting in increased mileage and wear and tear. Fleet managers want to avoid breakdowns or customer complaints during this busy period. It is crucial to ensure that the fleet is not just operational but in excellent condition to guarantee customer satisfaction. This is where comprehensive mobile fleet vehicle maintenance and odor elimination services become invaluable, as they can help address the challenges associated with fleet overflow during peak travel like Memorial Day weekend.

Memorial Day road trips are up 6% over last year. 37.1 million Americans will drive to their destinations, an increase of more than 2 million.


Save Time and Money with Mobile Fleet Maintenance

Rental car fleets are crucial in facilitating travel for individuals and families during Memorial Day and beyond. As more people opt for road trips and vacations, the demand for rental cars skyrockets. To ensure efficient operations and customer satisfaction, fleet managers face the challenge of managing fleet overflow effectively. This is where mobile fleet maintenance services prove invaluable in saving both time and money.
On-site preventative maintenance services become even more important after travel spikes. Our mobile capability allows us to maintain fleet vehicles wherever they are, reducing downtime and maximizing efficiency. It eliminates the need for fleet managers to send vehicles to traditional brick-and-mortar maintenance facilities, saving time and operational costs. By leveraging mobile fleet maintenance, fleet managers can address overflow maintenance needs efficiently and minimize downtime incurred during off-site maintenance. The convenience of on-site service allows for quicker turnaround times, ensuring that vehicles are back on the road promptly to serve customers during this busy period. This not only enhances customer satisfaction but also maximizes fleet utilization and revenue potential.
Moreover, mobile fleet maintenance services offer cost savings by eliminating the expenses associated with transporting vehicles allowing managers to allocate their resources more effectively to optimize fleet performance and profitability during the Memorial Day vehicle rental spike. Even if you have an on-site maintenance team, we can help you flex up by covering overflow services after peak demand periods.

Boost Customer Satisfaction with a Fresh Fleet

Fleet cleanliness, including odor elimination, is a vital aspect of fleet maintenance, especially when dealing with fleet overflow. Lingering odors can significantly impact customer feedback for fleet and rental car companies, making it crucial to prioritize customer satisfaction and maximize vehicle utilization, particularly during the busy summer travel season. This holds even more significance in our health-conscious era. Fleet vehicles tend to accumulate various odors over time, such as food, smoke, pet smells, or the general scent that comes with high turnover.
Why does it matter? Well, besides providing a more enjoyable driving experience for customers, research indicates that cleanliness and odor management greatly influence customers' perception of your service. When a vehicle smells fresh and clean, customers are more likely to rate their experience positively, leading to repeat business and word-of-mouth recommendations.
Our new and improved Spiffy Smart Tumbler is the ultimate user-friendly, reliable fleet solution for odor-removal of organic materials, smoke molecules, and bacteria. It automates the deodorizing process for fleet vehicles, leaving them completely odor-free in only 20 minutes.
