Fleet Services announces new rates for 2011 – 2012

On July 1, new Fleet Services rates will go into effect. Fleet Services continues to provide competitive rates with minor changes in the 2011/2012 rate structure.

The changes are as follows:

Short-Term Rental Daily and UCAR Hourly Rates

* All mileage rates have decreased due to changes in preventive maintenance (included in rental rates).

* All rental rates have decreased except for: Minivan/Small SUV, Compact Regular Pick Up, and Mini/Regular Cargo Vans. For these vehicle types, the mileage reductions offset the minor increase in rental rates.

* The 12-passenger van rate is increasing by $1.30 to $35.25/day due to a drop in usage. This rate continues to compare favorably to contract rates. A sample one-day comparison (using 250 miles for mileage computation) reveals the following: Fleet – $77.35/day and Enterprise – $114.05/day.

* Although annual UW Parking costs remain the same, the parking cost per hour has increased from $0.33 per hour to $0.42 for daily/UCAR rentals due to a drop in utilization.

Permanent Assignment Leased Rates

* All mileage rates have decreased due to changes in preventive maintenance (included in rental rates).

* All rental rates have decreased except for: Heavy Truck/Vans, Minivan/Small SUV, Compact Regular Pick Up, and Mini/Regular Cargo Vans. For these vehicle types, the mileage reductions offset the minor increase in rental rates.

Shop hourly rate for fleet and fleet managed vehicles increased from $77.02/hr to $79.17/hr and from $95.19/hr to $104.51/hr for non-fleet managed vehicles.

Fleet Services continues to provide competitive rates and excellent services to our customers in the University community. In 2010, Fleet saved the University over $350,000 in rental fees when compared to Enterprise Rent-A-Car.
