How outsourcing can benefit your small fleet

Businesses come in all shapes and sizes, even Apple started off as a startup in someone’s garage. The same is true for businesses with vehicle fleets, some just have a fleet of two or three vehicles. You might think that if you have a small fleet you won’t benefit from fleet management, but that’s where you are wrong. In this blog, we take a look at how fleet management can benefit small businesses.

Big benefits for small business

With a Full Maintenance Lease, Avis Fleet takes on all the risks involved with owning and maintaining vehicles, including providing the capital finance and carrying the maintenance and resale risk. You retain the option to take ownership at the end of the lease. If ownership is not required, Avis Fleet’s standard FML (Full Maintenance Lease) takes over ALL the risks and the vehicle ownership. The benefits of a Full Maintenance Lease include:

  • An effective and easy source of financing
  • Improved cash flow
  • Predictable monthly payments
  • Outsourcing of non-core processes (e.g. fleet management, maintenance, accident management)
  • Removal of asset and disposal risks
  • Flexibility of use

Outsourcing fleet management is certainly the most convenient option for small businesses. With a Full Maintenance Lease, one contact person can take care of every aspect of your fleet from procurement to selling vehicles.

Save money

A Full Maintenance Lease can help you to save money in many ways. When it comes to maintenance, you can leverage off our lower costs on consumables because Avis Fleet has a relationship with a network of dealerships all over the country.

Instead of paying off vehicles, which are depreciating assets, you could be putting money into other areas of your business.

Our Telematics solution gives you round-the-clock control of your vehicles' whereabouts, lets you track driver behaviour and successfully reduce fleet accidents, vehicle maintenance costs and fuel consumption.

In some instances, Intelligent Fuel Management (IFM)  can help you save up to 14% of your fleet’s fuel consumption costs. The IFM solution has an above 90% accuracy rate.

Avis Fleet solutions are a comprehensive offering that enhance every aspect of fleet management. We have solutions that help customers with everything from vehicle acquisition to maintenance, telematics and making provisions for accidents. Find out more about our fleet solutions.
