Windshield Maintenance for Fleet Vehicles
Chances are, if you drive a commercial vehicle like a work van, company car, or bus, you spend a lot of time on the road. Whether it’s commuting between sales meetings, working on construction sites, or touring the countryside in an RV, you’re very familiar with long commuting hours.

Whatever your role in dealing with commercial vehicles, you’re likely aware of the wear and tear company cars encounter. The tires and engines of fleet vehicles need a lot more TLC than your personal vehicle, but have you considered the windshields? It’s simple, the more time a car spends on the road, the higher the likelihood of encountering windshield damage.
Here are some tips for keeping the windshields of fleet vehicles in good condition and keeping drivers safe:
- Keep a safe following distance, and be smart about who you drive behind. Try not to follow trucks, tractor trailers, and other utility vehicles that might sling debris or rocks behind them.
- Park smart! Just like with a personal vehicle, parking in the shade when possible prevents cracking and warping due to extreme temperature changes. But be careful, parking under trees with dry branches or loose limbs could lead to an even bigger problem…
- Fix cracks, chips, and scratches as soon as possible. The longer you leave the damage, the more likely it is to spread and require a full windshield replacement.
