Understand the Benefits of Mobility Fleet Leasing?

Mobility

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

What is mobility? The term “mobility” has long been an integral part of fleet management, but in today’s ever-changing world, it has evolved into something far more extensive. Mobility now stands as a new way of thinking; 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.
