Learning About Transportation

Hello, my name is Christine Baker. Welcome to my site about transportation. In my city, the streets and highways are always packed full of cars, day and night. The high traffic levels have pushed city developers to consider new ways to transport large amounts of people to and from the city center. The solution they found was to build a light rail across a large portion of the land. Other cities have subways that provide the same benefits. I will use this site to explore transportation options utilized throughout the world. Please visit my site daily to see what’s new. Thanks.

Lease A Fleet Of Vehicles

Jeffery Spencer

Purchasing a series of company vehicles comes at a high cost. Many business owners prefer to lease a fleet of vehicles instead. Learn about some common business car fleet services that will provide you and your employees with dependable transportation.

Vehicle Types

Trucks, vans, sedans, and vehicles that contain extended cabs or cargo areas are some vehicle types that a fleet leasing agent may furnish. Vehicles that can be leased are usually late-model vehicles that have been well-maintained. Your business may require salespeople to visit clients or delivery drivers to drop off goods at various locations.

Being supplied with safe, clean vehicles that are fully functioning will allow business dealings to be executed in a timely manner. Additionally, having access to a series of luxury or executive vehicles can support your desire to make a favorable impression on each outside business transaction that will require you or a staff member to meet with your clientele.

Open-End And Closed Agreements

Open-end and closed lease agreements are offered by business owners who provide fleet services. Each type of agreement will require a baseline timeframe in which a vehicle is leased. An open-end contract will entail a shorter lease timeframe than a closed lease contract. If you are going to need a series of vehicles on a temporary basis and don't want to be burdened with a lengthy contract, an open-end contract will be your cheapest option.

A closed agreement may require to you keep the vehicles that you lease for a couple of years or longer. Some fleet service managers may charge additional fees that are associated with the mileage that a car is driven. Fleet vehicle owners tend to trade in their vehicles or resell them while the vehicles are still considered valuable. If you plan on driving excessively, be certain that you agree to any mileage stipulations that are listed in a contract before signing it.

Maintenance needs for any vehicles that you will ultimately have in your possession will be the responsibility of the fleet service owner. Routine maintenance may include oil changes, vehicle inspections, and mechanical and cosmetic repairs.

Your fleet manager will outline how often your vehicles will be serviced. Take note of the service dates, and make plans to have transportation backups on these occasions. Any issue that occurs while one of the leased vehicles is being driven, including mechanical failures or vehicular accidents, should be reported to your fleet manager immediately.
