The South African business world has been left reeling after the recent news that the country has experienced its worst quarterly economic performance since 2009. The news was greeted by fears that our economy might slip into a second recession. So what does this mean for companies that run vehicle fleets?
Outsourcing fleet management makes good sense
- Borrowing against core business capital to buy something like a vehicle makes bad business sense. Investing capital in depreciating assets is not the best option when it comes to running a vehicle fleet.
- You reduce overall risk when you outsource your fleet to a fleet management company. Avis Fleet mitigates the risk on maintenance and resale of vehicles so your business doesn’t have to.
- Buying vehicles becomes more expensive in times of economic upsets. Outsourcing your fleet to Avis Fleet means that your bottom line won’t be negatively affected.

Avis Fleet is flexible because our solutions fit our customers’ needs. We offer full maintenance leasing that simplifies vehicle management. We take care of maintenance at a fixed monthly rate so you don’t have to worry about the long-term costs and risks of owning the vehicles.
This option has a positive effect on cash flow as there’s no capital outlay for the period of the lease. Since costs are fixed for the duration of the contract, you can factor it into your budget as a predictable expense.
Outsourcing the management of your fleet means that you’re also outsourcing administrative burdens, including the payment of licences and traffic fines. Avis Fleet will send you monthly management reports and provide you with a 24/7 real-time reporting platform to keep you in the loop.
