Vehicle Procurement Checklist

What will the vehicle be used for? The size of the vehicle will depend on what’s being transported. The weight of medical supplies, for example, will be much less than that of building materials. Engines that do not have sufficient power will have performance and maintenance issues. But over specced trucks will also run a higher cost relative to the income they generate.

Will the vehicle be using petrol or diesel? Consider the distance the vehicles will cover in a year, if the fleet is going to run shorter distances, using petrol might be cheaper.

Is the vehicle going to be driven more on the highway or in the city? Trucks that are driven in the city are required to have more maneuverability.

Will you require automatic transmission?

Have you considered how to maximise fuel economy?

Have you thought about how best to schedule maintenance?

Is there a service network to support the vehicle when it needs parts?

Outsourcing your corporate fleet management to Avis Fleet will make you more efficient and save you money.
