What are fleet cars used for?

In general, fleet vehicles or company vehicles are used to transport people or products, such as in the case of cargo services or car rental companies. A fleet vehicle is a car that was once used by an organization for labor, charitable, or government purposes. There are a variety of fleet vehicles, from economical and environmentally friendly sedans to full-size SUVs. The most common type of fleet vehicle is a rental car.

National car rental companies Hertz, Avis and Enterprise, for example, sell their used vehicles to recover part of the original purchase cost. Because these companies buy cars at discounts in bulk, you may be able to find a great deal. So does that mean you should ignore all service vehicles in the fleet entirely? Absolutely not. Fleet vehicles offer a great deal compared to their standard civilian counterparts, but special care must be taken when checking the vehicle.

Take the time to have a mechanic you trust examine the car and, if he or she says it's best to keep looking, follow that advice. If the vehicle receives approval from the workshop, keep in mind that parts that are likely to be replaced, such as the starter and alternator, may need care soon and include those costs in your budget. When it comes to finding government vehicles for sale, GovPlanet lists thousands of used cars and trucks, from cruise ships and sedans to vans and vans. Several websites show thousands of used rental vehicles and municipal fleets that are being auctioned and that you can check out.

It's also worth noting that most cars or trucks that have spent time in motorized pools have more miles on the road than privately owned vehicles. Of course, the other side of the coin is that fleet vehicles tend to suffer a lot of abuse from their drivers. On the bright side, all of the maintenance of a fleet vehicle is almost certain to have been done promptly. We strongly recommend that you get prior approval so that you can now have a financing offer in your pocket and know your budget limit as you search for a car.

If the idea of owning a rental car doesn't make you feel comfortable, consider buying a fleet vehicle that isn't inventory from a rental company. If you're looking for a used car, expanding your search to include fleet vehicles can help you get an offer. Companies, non-profit groups and government agencies have fleet vehicles available for specific purposes and are regularly maintained by professionals.
