Vehicle Selection and Procurement
Your Fleet Account Executive will work with you to select the best vehicle for your specific needs at the best price. For immediate needs, we can purchase out of stock units from our network of fleet dealers anywhere in the United States. We can also factory order vehicles, which gives you the greatest flexibility in choosing only the options you want and offers the best value. Many manufacturers offer additional incentives based on volume purchases in a given year. Leasing Associates can apply for these incentives on your behalf.
If you require specially modified vehicles from simple racks, shelves and bins up to custom service units on a truck chassis, we can manage this process for you. We deliver the final product built to your specifications, and your lease payments will not start until you take delivery.
Title, Registration, Taxes and Tolls
Each state has its own laws regarding the titling and registration of vehicles, including unique laws for vehicle inspections. Leasing Associates has experience in all fifty states and will assure that you receive your registration renewal on time each year. We will also retitle and reregister your vehicles if you need to move from one state to another.
Leasing Associates will make sure that your sales taxes and/or property taxes are correctly calculated and paid to the appropriate taxing authority. Additionally, we will identify any toll violations received on your vehicle. We can pay the charges and bill back your account or give you the option to handle directly with the tolling authority.
Your Fleet Account Executive will work with you to determine the optimal time to sell your leased vehicle, based on many factors including mileage, maintenance expenditures, and the current used car market trends. Based on the market data, a floor price is set for vehicles sent to auction. We will contact you for approval of any auction bids below that floor. If not approved, we will decline the sale and rerun the vehicle through the auction process until a satisfactory price is received. While most vehicles are sold through auction, we can also accommodate vehicle sales to employees or other third parties. In each case, we will make sure all the proper documentation is completed for the title transfer.
Insurance and Accident Management
Leasing Associates offers fleet insurance rates that could substantially reduce your insurance costs. One million dollars in combined single limit liability coverage is available in most areas, along with collision and comprehensive coverage. We will pre-qualify your drivers for the policy in order to control your risk exposure.
Leasing Associates will also assist you in the event of an accident. We will negotiate with insurance carriers on your behalf to make sure you receive the proper settlement amount. We offer roadside assistance, and we can coordinate a rental car through a national vendor partner.
Maintenance and Fuel Management
We understand that having a vehicle out of service costs you money, so our goal is to help you maintain your vehicles at the optimal level. We offer three tiers of maintenance programs to meet your needs, the National Account Program, the Maintenance Management Program, and Full Maintenance. Click here for more information.
