How long are your leases?

Merchants Fleet offers leases as short as a few months, up to traditional leases. Our team can help you determine what the optimal lease length is for your situation.

How quickly can I get my fleet vehicles?

Merchants Fleet works with manufacturers and dealers nationwide. Your sales executive will work with you to determine your needs and get your vehicles as soon as possible. However, timeframes may vary according to the type of vehicle you need, your specifications, and manufacturer timelines.

What is telematics?

Telematics uses GPS and integrated telecommunications to give you real-time snapshots of your fleet operations. The system sends, receives and stores information about each vehicle so you can get detailed information about speed, idle times, overall vehicle health, and driver behavior. Learn more about how telematics works and how it provides insights into your fleet.

How can I reduce my cost of ownership?

There are many ways to reduce your total cost of ownership. Examining fuel costs, idling, driver behavior, maintenance patterns, and vehicle lifecycle can all lead to opportunities for improvements. Merchants Fleet strategic consulting has a team of analytics-minded experts who can examine your fleet data to identify ways to make meaningful changes to your fleet operations.
