We stay on top of the latest changes so we can keep our clients informed and address any challenges that may arise from new compliance requirements. We help you stay in compliance with all Department of Transportation (DOT), Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), and Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) regulations. Protect yourself from costly fines and liability through the following services.

“Since partnering with Merchants Fleet last year, their professional team members have provided excellent service and offered innovative solutions to address our unique needs.  Merchants has proven to be a top-tier fleet management company, exceeding our expectations on all levels.”

“My experience has been one of overwhelming delight. 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.”
