On-time performance is critical to our service delivery. We understand the ramifications of delays and that costs can rack up quickly with crew having stood around when a truck does not turn up. In order to enhance reliability we always ensure we have young fleet all the time by adapting an optimum truck replacement policy. Apart from having maintenance contracts with dealerships we also have an in house workshop with a fulltime workshop manager and fitters. This is further supported up by a comprehensive breakdown cover supplied by a reputable firm.
Luckings also tracks all its vehicles via a mobile based tracking that enables us to pin point the location of the truck in real time.
