Our work, among other things, requires regular use of four wheelers, like cars, vans, gypsies etc. While the increasing price of petrol and diesel makes certain expenditure that we incur on vehicles a necessity, we have found that we unknowingly and quite helplessly end up spending huge sums on repair and maintenence that were either actually less costly or totally unnecessary. So, a specialist of vehicles, someone who has a practical knowledge of their working and hence can guide us to real attention areas, genuine spare parts and the actual cost that they demand is required.
Probable skills required: A practical and working knowledge of automobiles and their parts. The vehicles we have are Tata 709, Tata Winger, Tata Sumo, Maruti Gypsy and a jeep.
Challenges: You have to proactively monitor the repair and maintenence requirements and suggest us genuine spare parts and expenditure.
Duration of requirement: All round the year. But if you are unable to render your services for 12 months at a stretch, we would be happy to have you with us for as long as you can. However, the duration should be such that it is fruitful to all concerned.
Additional request: For the proper working of vehicles, regular inspection and your presence and guidance would be needed. And yet this might not require continuous attention. So if you can visit us periodically and, may be, train someone from the local team to understand the 'nuts and bolts' in your absence, we would be helped immensely.
