Commercial Rentals

Getting people and goods where they need to be when they need to be there

Why choose Merchants for your commercial rental needs? Getting short-term vehicle rentals to fill gaps and meet demand has always been an integral part of fleet management. In today’s ever-changing world, it has evolved into something far more extensive. That's why Merchants Fleet looks at rentals with a transformative, on-demand philosophy that can unlock new opportunities in delivering the most efficient transportation that is needed, when it is needed, and for exactly how long it is needed.

Short-Term Leasing & Long-Term Rentals

We understand that not all projects are created equal. When you are on a project, you may have increased or varied vehicle needs, the time frame may change, or you may require different vehicles, such as vans, pickups, or other specialty transportation. No matter if your company needs a short-term fleet leasing solution for seasonal business or a long-term rental for ongoing project-based work, our team of fleet industry leaders collaborate with you to develop a custom fleet leasing solution that aligns with your operational goals and budgetary allocation.

With unlimited mileage options and leasing terms starting as little as three months, our flexibility will maximize your return on investment and deliver the right vehicles to take on any job that comes your way. In addition, we provide continued fleet management service and guidance for short-term leases and long-term rentals to help your fleet function at its highest levels.

Pool Management

FleetShare is a revolutionary vehicle-sharing program for any commercial business or institution looking for a way to manage their fleet or motor pool more efficiently. With FleetShare’s innovative online and in-car wireless technologies, you have total control of daily operations and reporting, as well as convenient self-service reservations and keyless vehicle access for your drivers. The “one vehicle with many drivers” approach ensures that every asset of your fleet achieves its highest levels of utilization.

Achieving true fleet optimization can only occur when a strategically constructed plan is firmly in place. Backed by the brightest minds in the fleet industry, FleetShare will uncover any vehicle usage or maintenance inefficiencies, track accountability at the driver level, and improve the overall effectiveness of your fleet.

While you benefit from increased efficiency and reduced administration, your drivers reap the benefits of FleetShare’s easy-to-use technology, which gives them more control. Drivers can easily make and change reservations 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and they can pick up or drop off vehicles after-hours without needing staff assistance.

Commercial Rental Costs

Gain control of your fleet costs through the flexibility of commercial rentals. By partnering with Merchants Fleet, you gain instant access to significant benefits of working with a true fleet management consultant.

Merchants Fleet uses data and analytics to identify opportunities to rightsize your fleet and improve efficiencies, giving you the insights needed to allocate your resources to where and when you need them most. In leveraging the full potential of commercial rentals, optimize your fleet spend by varying your fleet size with the right vehicles for the right duration.

Merchants Fleet has fleet management consultants who can help you understand the total cost of the commercial rentals you need. When total cost begins to factor in all modes of transportation, not just fleet, efficiency will truly be limitless.

Merchants facilitates the expansion of Novus Ag business possibilities with their experienced professional staff by engaging in supporting activities. Allowing Novus Ag to lease short term vehicles while factory ordering enables us to save tens of thousands while immediately placing the employee in a high-quality truck. From permitting Novus to lease agricultural, material handling assets, to fuel and maintenance programs, we consider them a valuable partner.”
