why is a service record so important when you trade in your vehicle.

Because it is a fact,  that an asset properly and timeously maintained, will have the best probability to reach it’s expected life span with the least unexpected failures. The same logic applies to all assets.

A documented service record is the best practice to ensure this.

Its is a structured set of maintenance activities to be actioned at different times thorugh a assets life cycle.

With a property the same holds true

Each structural item has a set of activities that needs to be actioned in a defined cycle pattern though the life cycle of the item.

Without such a service guide a LTMP and any other approach to managing a property will be constraint by not knowing what to do when.

The LTMP -BOOK OF LIFE  is the solution
