“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.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Where can you use fuel cards?

Our fuel card can be used at most national and regional fuel retailers where MasterCard® is accepted. You can put rules in place and lock down your cards so that drivers can only use them at  more secure fueling stations that will always require driver ID and odometers to be entered.

What is the availability of your driver resource center?

Driver support is just a phone call away. A Merchants Fleet representative who understands your fleet practices and services will work to address issues quickly and efficiently. If more support is needed, your representative will collaborate with internal and external resources. Even if you aren’t enrolled in our extended services program, we’ll do our best to give the drivers the help they need, especially when it comes to accidents and urgent situations. We also provide 24/7 responses to just about any situation that arises on the road.

How is fuel spending managed?

All vehicles and fuel spending are managed within the TotalView platform, which allows full visibility into your employee fuel spend so you can prevent fraud and identify areas for cost savings.

What is a fleet fuel card?

A fleet fuel card is a credit card specialized for fuel purchases that allows you to monitor costs, determine each driver’s fuel usage, capture odometer readings and more. It also allows you to limit and verify purchases and ensure only authorized employees are using the fuel card.

Can I extend my rental terms?

Yes. We offer month-to-month options for short-term extensions or you can realize additional cost savings by converting to a long-term lease.

Do I have to take care of vehicle maintenance?

Merchants Fleet will cover all maintenance over the life of the vehicle. We have vehicle repair partners throughout the country and will be able to recommend one near you.
