Top 7 Rules to Give to Your Employees Who Drive a Company
Car
For many businesses that provide cars and other vehicles to their employees to use, taking care of the
company vehicle to make it last is a top priority. Unfortunately, when people are given the use of
anything that isn’t their own, they tend to abuse the vehicle and the privileges associated with its use.
There are a few rules that should be given to employees who drive a company vehicle and enforced
appropriately when necessary.
No smoking is permitted in the car.Smoking is a personal habit that many employees may have.
However, smoking in a vehicle presents many dangers, potential damages, and cleanliness issues that
can endanger others and depreciate the value of the vehicle. Just as your building may have a nosmoking policy, your company vehicles should be under that same policy.
Cars must be kept clean. For some reason, some
employees may be less inclined to keep their company
vehicle as clean as they would keep their personal vehicle.
Because the reputation of the company is at stake,
employees should keep in mind that they are representing
the company when they are driving company vehicles. The
cars should be kept clean of debris inside and outside of
the car.
Some companies enforce this issue by having the car
detailed when it has been neglected and then send the bill
to the employee. The threat of an expensive detail on the
vehicle may be enough for some employees to make sure
their cars are kept clean and respectable.
Cars must be inspected at least twice a year.When cars
are called in for inspection, the employer has a chance to
make sure the car has been properly taken care of and
maintained. Those who have not taken care of their
vehicles properly should be given the cars in the worst
condition. This may be incentive for many to take good
care of their vehicles.
Late or missed vehicle maintenance is not acceptable.It is essential that all vehicles be maintained and
properly checked by mechanics. Any car that suffers damage because of neglect should become the
responsibility of the driver who neglected it. Expensive repairs or engine replacement is another reason
that many drivers will stay motivated to take care of the company vehicles.
Drivers are responsible for their own traffic citations.Employees still need to obey the law when driving
any car. They are not immune to any traffic laws about parking or otherwise. If an employee breaks the
law and receives a citation, he or she must pay it. If he or she refuses or continuously receives citation,
driving the company vehicle may no longer be an option. Some companies will terminate employees for
this type of behavior.
No unauthorized driver is to use the
car.Employees should never let anyone who
does not have the expressed permission of
the company to drive the car. This includes
spouses, children, or other family members.
No unauthorized mechanic should be
permitted to work on the vehicle, either.
They can have an employee purchase
option.A great incentive for employees to take care of the company fleet of cars is through this type of
option. Employees who may own the vehicle through a purchase after a certain amount of time may be
more inclined to take good care of the vehicle knowing that they will get more use out of it after
purchase.
It is wise to remember that incentives drive employees to make better decisions about any type of
property they are handling. Remember to praise your employees for taking great care of the property of
your business and they will reward you with better care of the property.
