How Motorlease Makes Switching Fleet Management Companies Easy
Switching Is Easy, Breaking Up Is Hard To Do
There are a number of reasons why your organization may consider switching vendors, including dissatisfaction with your current fleet management company (FMC). When you first decide to make a switch from one FMC to another, it may seem like a daunting administrative task. Contrary to this belief, switching fleet management companies is actually a relatively easy process, especially with the right fleet management partner.
Motorlease is committed to providing our customers with a seamless transition from their previous FMC into their new fleet management program, from disposing of old vehicles, to acquiring a brand new fleet, and every step in between.
Step 1: Understanding Your Current Fleet
The foundation of any strong FMC partnership is a holistic understanding of your company’s fleet history and current needs. Our team at Motorlease starts by asking the right questions to tailor your transition to your new fleet management program, such as:
- Do you currently own or lease the vehicles in your fleet?
- Are you interested in transferring existing leases or starting with a new fleet?
- What is the current structure of your leases?
- How involved would you like to be in the parting process with your current FMC?
Once we have insight into these questions, we can move forward with the process of offloading or acquiring your company’s new vehicles.
Step 2: Selling Your Old Vehicles
The next step in switching fleet management companies is deciding what to do with your company’s existing vehicles. If you own the vehicles in your current fleet, Motorlease will find the best remarketing channels for a quick and painless sale. We partner with leading retail consignment companies that help in selling vehicles and returning funds directly to our customers.
In the event that you are leasing vehicles, you may simply choose to trade in old leases for your new fleet. Motorlease alerts your previous FMC of your old fleet’s arrival at a specific dealership so that they can make arrangements for pickup.
If you don’t wish to part with your current leases, we can directly purchase your existing fleet from your old FMC to expedite the transition and handle all re-registration and title transfers in-house.
Step 3: Acquiring New Vehicles
Now that you’ve disposed of your old vehicles, it’s time to rebuild your company’s fleet! If you have a flexible timeline, Motorlease can factory order new cars tailored to your exact specifications. For a more swift process, we will also purchase out of stock in the event that there is an immediate need.
Optional Step: Comparison Shopping
At Motorlease, we understand the stress that accompanies any major business decision. In an effort to minimize that, we offer fleets the option to give Motorlease a try before fully committing and switching their entire fleet to a new management company. Give us your toughest driver to please and let us prove we can make them happy before you commit.
At Motorlease, we understand that breaking up is hard to do, but the process of switching fleet management companies doesn’t have to be! We look forward to guiding you and your fleet through an easy transition from your previous FMC to a new program with Motorlease.
