Other Vehicle Inspections
Driver daily walkaround check
The daily walkaround check is a vital part of any maintenance system, and so requires continuous monitoring to ensure the checks are being performed correctly.
Logistics UK engineers can re-examine vehicles as they leave your premises to simulate a visit by DVSA. This aids compliance with the Guide to Maintaining Roadworthiness requirements, to continually review the performance of driver daily walkaround checks. Each vehicle stopped has a check of the daily walkaround check sheet, completed by the driver that day, and then a physical walkaround check of the vehicle completed by the Logistics UK engineer. The engineer will review all elements of a walkaround check from mirrors, dashboard, and gauges, to brakes, tyres, and number plate.
A summary report for each site for all vehicles and trailers checked is produced, along with a more detailed report for each individual vehicle/driver, which can include photos of any defects found. All management data for all sites/drivers/vehicles checked is then presented in the Driver Gate Exit Dashboard in Logistics UK Vision.
These inspections provide in-depth visual examinations. They build upon the roadworthiness inspections to give you valuable insights into maintenance standards, and the general care of the vehicle. The inspection looks at body work, paintwork and livery, along with tyre tread depth and partially worn components.
These inspections provide information on the condition of a vehicle before you buy. You’ll receive a full maintenance inspection, a standard road and brake test, plus a report on the details of the vehicle such as plated weights, test certificate details and tyre types.
End of lease inspection
These inspections provide an objective third-party report on the condition of vehicles before they are returned. Our reports will highlight areas that require repair before the vehicle is returned.
