Mechanical servicing and repairs are conducted systematically across our fleet for performance reliability and to comply with the highest standards in our ongoing commitment to safety and quality. We employ a local, qualified mechanical team for our workshop and maintain an on-call roster to carry out mechanical servicing, diagnostics, HVAC servicing, auto electrical work, gearbox conditioning, brake testing and general vehicle repairs.
Mandatory daily inspections are carried out by our drivers before they begin their journey to proactively reduce breakdowns and mechanical issues. Checks include safety, drivability and body checks across tyres, emergency equipment, fluid levels, body damage and more.
To support the demands of a transport solution and fleet of vehicles, Buslink VIVO offers the ability to engineer, build and maintain the transport infrastructure as part of our tailored transport solutions.
Our onsite wash facility keeps our fleet clean, visible and safe on the roads.
