Owning your vehicle fleet can be time-consuming, risky and expensive in the longer term. Vehicle purchases for new fleet vehicles or replacement cars are capital intensive. What you are buying is an asset that has depreciated the minute you receive it. You are also stuck with the hassles of admin, servicing, insurance and registration.

This is still the norm for tradition-bound organisations or those which are fleet heavy. Many businesses have long ago moved away from this practice using an operating lease to make fleet management simpler.


There are a number of things that you need to consider in relation to operating leases on your vehicles. If you cannot answer yes to each of the following, you should consider an alternative solution:

  • Are your vehicle related expenses predictable and simple to maintain?
  • Have you allocated a resource to manage your fleet?
  • Can you guarantee repairs and maintenance on your cars will be performed on time?
  • Is there a direct impact to your business when your vehicles are off the road for servicing and maintenance?
  • Do you have a strategy of disposing of your vehicles that minimise the residual risk and maximise returns when selling your vehicles?


A better buying outcome helps streamline the management of vehicles in the fleet.

  • Smart technology means less time to administer for the business and better service for employees
  • A high service culture delivers greater ease of use
  • Ongoing monitoring reduces chances of significant debits at end of lease
  • Capped admin fees mean no surprises later on
