Negotiate pricing with vendors.

Fleet Updates & Disposals

Developing a fleet updating plan takes time, but the long-term fleet savings it will provide your fleet is worth the effort.

Take a detailed inventory of your entire fleet.
What tasks are accomplished by each vehicle or piece of equipment?
What is the monthly mileage of each vehicle or hour use of each piece of equipment?
Do you have vehicles or equipment that are no longer cost effective to operate?
Do you have vehicles or equipment that are no longer fulling their intended purpose?
Do you have vehicles or equipment that can be shared efficiently?
Can any vehicles be replaced by lighter, more fuel-efficient vehicles?
Do you have vehicles that have excessive downtime?
Do you have vehicles that consistently have excessive service/repair costs?
Establish parameters for when to update vehicles and equipment. Some examples:
Rising Cost of Ownership
Safety Concerns
Risk of Breakdown
Risk of Downtime

Cost of Insurance
Resale Value
