Fleet Service is an independent garage specializing in maintenence and repair of vehicle fleets, alongside an ever growing portfolio of bespoke specialist vehicle conversions.

About Us

Fleet Service Ltd was formed in 1986 under its original name of GB Motors. The company changed its name in 1989 to Fleet Service to reflect the nature of the business it was undertaking. Fleet Service implemented the then BS5750 in 1993 and was the first independent garage in the UK to achieve this accreditation.

Fleet Service continually strives to improve the service it provides to its clients and keeps abreast of market changes. In 1994 Fleet Service relocated to its current premises on Ribbleton Lane, Preston to aid further expansion.

Fleet Service is an approved Department of Transport testing facility for class’s 4, 7 and 5a. Due to the layout of the class 7 facilities we have the ability to undertake the very large motor homes.

Fleet Service has been an approved contractor for the Ministry Of Defence for over 10 years. The objective of the management of Fleet Service is to provide its clients with a quality and reliable service, which conforms to the customer’s specified requirement and the industry standards.

The aim of the company is to reduce vehicle costs whilst at the same time increase vehicle utilisation. The Fleet Service workshop is open 24 hours a day Monday to Friday.

In 1996 a new division within the company was formed called FleetCare. This division was created as a result of a customer's requirement. FleetCare carries out specialist security work on high value load carrying vehicles.

FleetCare now offers a full range of security products backed by a nationwide support to the vehicle market. To minimize the potential effect of product liability all safety and hazardous operations are determined and evaluated. Third party assessment and certification ensures that products are supplied to contract requirements.

Fleet Service Overview

We offer a full range of vehicle services and maintenance for all sizes, types and weights of vehicles from a car to a 56 seat coach.This wide variation of services has been developed because of requests from our client base over the last 28 years To meet this requirement we have technicians with very different skill levels for example,we have technicians who can diagnose, strip and rebuild the engine on a V12 Aston Martin to fitters who can prepare and present a coach or LGV for its annual PSV / DOT test

We are also prepared to maintain any specialist equipment that may be fitted to client’s vehicles. If our fitters do not have the current experience required Fleet Service is happy to source and provide training for the staff if required. This has again evolved because of client request.

Fleet Service place particular emphasis on customer service. A large proportion of our client base is national / international blue chip clients. The same level of service is also provided to clients who may only have one or two vehicles. Fleet Service truly aims to provide clients with a one number solves all issues relating to vehicles and ancillary equipment.
