Fleet Maintenance Program

Detroit Auto Electric Fleet Maintenance Program is designed to keep your truck up to date on routine maintenance and inspections. We will design a program based on the needs of your fleet, help you keep repair costs in check, and remind you when your vehicle needs maintenance.


We can customize our vehicle maintenance programs to schedule routine maintenance by date or by as many miles as you want and we will let you know when specific vehicles in your fleet are up for routine maintenance and inspections.


No fleet is too large or too small for quality, honest repair work that gets your truck back on the road fast.

Advanced Vehicle Maintenance Software

Detroit Auto Electric uses the industries’ leading fleet maintenance program that can analyze fleet operating costs, pinpoint hidden problems, and keep detailed records on the history of your trucks.


We give you real-time fleet information to reduce expenses so you can maximize profits. Our system provides detailed and cumulative cost per mile data, helps monitor fuel consumption, and can give date-specific breakdowns on expenses for brakes and suspensions, and much more. And it can narrow down costs for operating a specific vehicle per mile – not just the entire fleet.


If your truck goes through a lot of tires, our system can pinpoint alignment problems or other hidden issues that can lead to expensive repairs– saving you money down the road.


Detroit Auto Electric is able to reduce your overall maintenance costs and provide you with vital fleet performance information so you keep more money in the bank for your business.


Our system keeps a complete history on the entire life of your vehicle while under our care. Detroit Auto Electric's truck repair reports are extremely detailed. We keep a permanent record of everything from the largest to smallest matters related to your vehicle. We take what you say seriously, adding customer requests, comments and observations about a truck’s performance to the history of your vehicle. These detailed reports are always at our mechanics fingertips, no matter which one of our qualified mechanics is working on your truck, so we are always able to access the entire history of your truck to provide you with the most cost-saving repairs around.
