Firing Technician With Company Vehicle - How To Handle?

How do other business owners go about firing a technician when there is a company vehicle involved? Do you let him or her know prior to coming to the office so that they can clean out any personal items? Or just give them a few minutes while waiting on a ride (we arrange an Uber or Lyft)? In this case, it's a recent hire that lacks the experience or skill set that he represented, so there is very little in the way of company equipment or parts in the vehicle.
