Fleet Management

We at Fleet Management are a dedicated team and workshop based at our UK central located head office in Doncaster. Operating UK wide it is our prime focus to both maintain and service all Vac-Ex units, equipment and vehicles within our Hire fleet and group. It is a priority to make sure all spares or parts are to hand so any potential down time is negligible or at least minimised to our client.

Prevention is always our first line of defence however we all get caught out once in a while so in preparation for this we at Fleet run three dedicated service vehicles.
