When you're getting ready to lease vehicles for your business, you need to consider where you are going to go. There is the option of going directly to a dealership or working with Wilmar. Many businesses don't think twice and go to a dealership because it is what they know. However, they are inevitably disappointed by the entire experience. This is why many businesses are learning about Wilmar.

Once you grow your business to a certain level, it's inevitable that you will have a business use of vehicles. It's when you have to look at building a fleet of vehicles. Wilmar offers a wide array of benefits to assist you.

Choosing the Vehicles

Visiting a dealership is often overwhelming, especially once a salesperson walks over. Salespeople are notorious for selling businesses what they think they need as opposed to what they actually need. This means that you may end up with a cargo van or pickup truck that has considerably more features than what you need or what you should be paying for.

Wilmar offers fleet selection assistance to help you account for various factors, such as cost, driver needs, cost per mile, and even towing requirements. It ensures that you get the vehicles needed for your business.

There is something to be said about having the right-sized fleet for your company. It will help with efficiency on many levels. It can help to keep your drivers safer while also being more productive throughout the day. By embracing innovation within the vehicles you choose, it allows you to stay more competitive.

Preventative Maintenance

Consider what's involved with preventative maintenance. From oil changes to tire rotations, they need to be performed. It's what will keep your fleet running smoothly throughout the year, providing reliable transportation for your employees and your business operations.

You need to explore fleet maintenance that makes sense for your business. With a dealership lease, they may offer you some preventative maintenance. However, is going to result in out-of-pocket payments and potentially driver reimbursements. It will also mean that you have to visit their dealership in order to get all of the preventative maintenance. This may be both inconvenient and expensive.

The Walk-Away Lease

Many companies are choosing Wilmar over a dealership lease as a result of the walk-away lease that is offered. It provides roadside assistance, monthly invoices, maintenance reminders, vehicle disposal, as well as driver fuel cards. The goal is to provide a simple solution to fleet management. It is a fixed expense so that companies simply need to turn in the keys and walk away at the end of the lease.

Ultimately, you have to decide what is best for your business. A dealership will often do what is best for their business, which means that you may not be getting the advice that is best suited for your operations or for your budget. The dealership wants to sell vehicles and they may point you towards ones that will help their bottom line, not yours.
