Work Order Template
Work orders are the heart and soul of fleet maintenance, indicating both work needed and work accomplished. Building maintenance data in a central location can give you insights into your fleet's overall health and ROI. We've put together a printable work order template for all your fleet's assets to standardize work order data for easy reporting and, when you're ready, easy uploading into fleet management software. Never miss a proactive maintenance service or suggested repair.
What is a work order?
A work order (or repair order) is a document created to describe a maintenance or repair need on an asset. Work orders provide technicians with clear guidelines on what work has been approved. Most work order forms have your basic line items, vehicle information, service completed, date of service and all associated costs.
Why use a maintenance work order?
A maintenance work order ensures that everybody involved is clear on the approved maintenance and repairs, as well as which asset is due for service. When organized properly, work orders can also be used to determine historical maintenance performed to identify larger trends or problems.
