Implementing Incentive guidelines for cleaning vehicles

 

Implementing Incentive guidelines for cleaning vehicles

I have been tasked to establish incentive guidelines for clean vehicles. I was wondering if anyone has done this. My challenge is that,  we do not have even a washing facility.

Please help me if you have ideas or suggestions

We have a contract establised with one of our local full service car washes. They will wash any vehcile up to 1-ton pickup trucks for a fixed price.  Our operators can use this service once a month.

Hope thsi helps! :-)

As we are a public service agency, we have a policy about keeping our cars clean (inside and out).  This is really no more than running it through one of the three car washes we have accounts with, vacuum and wipe down the interior and windows as well as taking any trash out of the car at the end of the shift.  We also have a clause about inclement weather (who's going to write someone up for not washing their car when it's raining or freezing outside?). If someone fails to comply with the policy, then we have a disciplinary policy which takes effect: verbal counseling, written counseling and progressively more stringent from there.

I don't ever recall any of our employees being written up for a messy car.  We keep them clean as public image is a big part of our job.

We have a car service come in and wash in place. We do have to make sure no water leaves the property and no standing water is left behind due to State laws.

We do not have a  incentive  program in place.

We are a small fleet and all of our vehicle maintenance is outsourced.  Part of the contract requirements was that the repair facility must be willing to wash, vacuum, and clean the windows each time a vehicle comes in for scheduled service.  Most of our vehicles are serviced at least 3 times a year.  For the departments that have fleet cards and want clean vehicles car washes are an authorized purchase on the fleet card.

I'm responding on behalf of FA member, pebelloli, who wrote:

"Our policy states vehicle washes should be infrequent and only when necessary.  Drivers go to commercial car wash or gas station and charge it on leasing company gas card (usually like $6)."

When I first read the title of this thread I assumed it was about alternative fuel vehicle funding programs

Thanks Richard for the feedback. I have edited the title to make it less confusing/more obvious.

For our light-duty fleet we don't have a policy or incentive. We use a local car wash and frequently have a person on light or restricted duty shuttle the vehicles to the wash as needed. For our medium and heavy fleet we have a detailed washing policy that we expect our supervisors to enforce but again no incentive. We have our own in-house facilities for this.
