We've been listening to your feedback, and we know you value customer service and an easy hire process. We continue to look for ways to streamline our process while still ensuring you are in the safest car for your job.
At Vista Hire, all our vehicles are fitted with in-vehicle monitoring systems (IVMS) - we use the IVMS to manage fleet maintenance and for improved driver and vehicle safety. We can provide IVMS reports to you at a nominal cost to enable you to monitor your drivers' behaviour.
Why would you want to monitor driver behaviour?
We recently conducted an exercise to compare the driver behaviour of a set of vehicles where the drivers knew their employers were monitoring the IVMS reports vs a set of vehicles where no report monitoring occurs.
When employers actively manage the IVMS reports, their employees are less likely to speed and more likely to wear their seatbelt.
Read more on our IVMS Case Study page which includes the actual data comparing the two sets of vehicles - you may be surprised at just how different the data is!
If you want to discuss getting access to your drivers' IVMS data - give Steve a call on 07 3240 8777.
Trailer Stability Control (TSC) automatically detects when an attached trailer starts to sway. If this situation occurs, the TSC automatically brakes individual wheels to stabilise the vehicle and trailer. In cases where the sway is severe, the engine torque is also reduced and the vehicle slowed automatically.
If you're towing a trailer and are concerned about trailer sway, ask us about TSC for your next hire. We have TSC in our fleet of Ford Rangers, and it's also coming in the new 2015 Toyota Hilux.
Just another safety feature included in our fleet of work ready vehicles at Vista Hire.
