Running a private fleet can be costly. But outsourcing with Penske lowers the total costs to operate your vehicle over the vehicle’s lifetime. Leasing from Penske can make managing your business costs easier and save you money. Here’s how:
Penske’s unique size and scope mean we can do more for less.
Fleet ownership comes with the associated expenses of overhead, towing, taxes, washing, acquiring substitute vehicles, licensing and fuel, among other hard costs.
New and ever-changing technology also keeps adding to the cost. Fleets have to deal with new engine designs, new emissions standards and new reporting requirements. With leasing, you don't have to worry about keeping up with the latest technology, because we do it for you.
Leasing can reduce maintenance and repair expenses. The longer you own a truck, the higher your maintenance and repair costs will be. This includes givens like tires, oil changes and routine inspections. A full-service lease will cover maintenance and repairs at predictable monthly costs.
Leasing eases hassles. Fleet ownership can include indirect costs and hassles, such as potential compliance issues, time lost to breakdowns, fees associated with driver training and costs associated with replacing drivers, who may leave to work with firms that have newer equipment.
Full-service leasing with Penske is a cost-effective solution to fleet management. It provides a lower upfront capital investment and consistent monthly payments. In addition to having a reliable, well-maintained fleet, our customers enjoy the credit flexibility that our long-term lease provides. When you consider the cost of leasing a truck, consider the benefits of full-service leasing with Penske:
It’s a fact that 50 percent of private fleets surveyed say fuel issues are their most important challenge, according to a survey by the National Private Truck Council. Penske Truck Leasing can help you get ahead of fuel costs and improve mpg averages. A typical Penske Truck Lease customer will save three or four percent on fuel economy. If your fleet drives more than 100,000 miles a year, that can mean thousands of dollars per year in savings.
As an affiliate member of the Environmental Protection Agency’s SmartWay program – a voluntary public-private partnership designed to reduce emissions and improve fuel economy – Penske Truck Leasing works with you to minimize fuel consumption. The process begins with choosing the right vehicle for the right load – and the right run.
Something as simple as choosing the right aerodynamic shape can make a big difference in mpg. Choosing a more efficient or hybrid engine can also help, as can making sure a vehicle is maintained and driven properly. Online and offline driver training, frequent preventive maintenance, and setting the proper engine speed control can also have an impact. Our fuel management team uses data to optimize vehicles and keep fuel costs where they should be, offering insights that go above and beyond.
Preventive maintenance (PM) is an important part of fleet management. Our PM program establishes a systematic schedule for inspection, repair, and maintenance, with the goal of increasing the performance and safety of your equipment.
Broken and downed equipment can prove extremely costly, with both direct and indirect costs associated with repairs and missed production. Our PM program reduces costs by ensuring tracking and compliance, improving vehicle reliability, enhancing safety, and reducing violations.
