How to sell your fleet vehicles for more money

Posted by Kyle Forbush on Mar 19, 2019 2:23:00 PM

"My minivan sold for how much?" My client asked, flashing a look of delight, surprise and slight disbelief. We politely reassured her that, yes, her para-transit minivan was sold at the previous week's Manheim Auto Auction for twice the sale price we anticipated. The minivan was originally acquired for $40,000, and the Mannheim Auction's "Condition Report" came back with some minor maintenance issues. This put our expectations at somewhere between $6,000 and $8,000. At the end of the day, Fleet Services received an e-mail from Manheim stating that the proposed highest big was $14,600. Our client gladly accepted the offer.

Brief: Volume Fleet Incentives

Posted by Kyle Forbush on Feb 18, 2019 2:52:06 PM

The process of acquiring new vehicles can sometimes make you feel like the victim of high-way robbery (pun intended). Luckily, there are manufacturers who actually strive to help cut costs in many ways, especially if you operate a fleet. Many car companies offer volume incentives and VIP programs, which greatly reduce not only the acquisition cost but also the life-cycle cost of every vehicle in your fleet.

Washington & Colorado Strive Towards Zero Emissions

Posted by Kyle Forbush on Feb 1, 2019 1:27:28 PM

Hybrid and electric vehicles can both relieve the burden of hefty fuel costs and reduce your fleet's carbon "tire-mark" -- so to speak. However, perhaps the safest way to estimate the potential benefits of going electric is to watch the ones who are already doing it. Recent developments in Washington state and Colorado, for example, have shown that the trend towards electric and hybrid vehicles is growing in legislative and business-minded popularity.

Driver Safety Tips: Automatic Emergency Braking

Posted by Kyle Forbush on Jan 22, 2019 3:24:52 PM

Sticking with the theme of our last blog article about Adaptive Cruise Control, I will compare the intelligence of emerging auto technology to the proliferation of computer IQ in The Matrix. Many embrace the invention of cars that sense and even think for us to some extent, while others fear that it takes too much responsibility out of our own hands. And if the Matrix trilogy taught us anything, it is to avoid self-aware mechanisms.

The Future of Driving is Here Today!

Posted by Kristina Kurzweil on Nov 23, 2015 10:40:00 AM

Operating a motorized vehicle in and of itself, is a huge responsibility. We have to be completely aware of our surroundings by checking three different mirrors all at once, using turn signals to change lanes, reading caution and directional road signs, checking to be sure there's enough fuel in the tank, that we stay within the speed limit, and the list goes on. Now, think about all we do beyond these normalities.  Are you ever running late for work and attempt to simultaneously make a phone call, eat breakfast, sip coffee, tie your tie, and drive all at once?  While performing these daily rituals we rarely stop to think about the dangers we're exposing ourselves to. Well, what if there was a way to safely and effectively drive while completing our side tasks?  The answer: Autonomous Cars!

Only Seven Vehicles Are Truly American-Made . . . Really?

Posted by Gabrielle Bobinsky on Jul 28, 2015 6:13:00 PM

You'll probably find this hard to believe, but "American-made" autos are quickly becoming a thing of the past unless something changes.  As the U.S. auto industry becomes more globalized, fewer and fewer cars meet the standard to be labeled American-made, and today there are only seven that make the list. I found this a bit shocking, so I did some digging to find out just who came up with this list and how are they defining "American-made?"
