Making sure your entire fleet of vehicles is registered and up-to-date is a full-time job. Merchants Fleet has a whole team dedicated to managing the license, title, and registrations of your fleet so you do not have to worry about violations or downtime. Our experts know the ins and outs of vehicle paperwork for every state. We streamline the license and title process for you, so you can skip the line at the DMV and get back to more important projects.
We Deal with Every DMV
We work with all 50 states, so no matter where you are based we have you covered. Whether you need title changes, specialty plates, interstate re-registration or registration renewals, our team can take care of it for you.
Our license and title experts are assigned to specific states, so they know the laws, processes, and standards for registering and licensing your fleet vehicles inside and out. We keep track of changes that occur from state to state, down to the municipal level. This means fewer errors and quicker turnaround – which gets you on the road faster.
Avoid Violations & Downtime
Merchants Fleet is dedicated to completing all license and title needs quickly and easily. We offer automatic monthly renewal processing, and title and registration changes are integrated with driver changes. We are here to help your fleet operations run smoothly so you avoid costly violations or downtime.
Easily Understand Administrative Costs
All charges are consolidated into a single monthly invoice – no hunting down multiple bills to understand the larger picture of your registration and title costs.

“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.”

Do I need to purchase insurance for my delivery vehicles?
Yes. Our vehicles are insured by the renter. You should have insurance to cover $1,000,000 liability policy for each vehicle.
How do I return the vehicles at the end of my contract?
We will arrange for the transportation of your vehicle when you are ready to return them. When you are approaching the end of your contract, please notify your Merchants account manager via phone or email correspondence at least 7 days prior to your anticipated end date. This allows our logistics team to arrange and schedule the pickup, and transport of your vans from where they are located.
You will need to remove all magnets, stickers, or other cosmetic changes made to the vehicle, sweep the cargo area and cabin, and clean out any trash from the inside of the van. You will also need to complete a digital condition report prior to releasing your vehicles to the transporter.
