Disposition and Remarketing: Top Strategies for Selling Fleet Vehicles and the Most Overlooked Aspect of Fleet Management
A top strategy for selling fleet vehicles starts years earlier with vehicle selection and continues with proper maintenance. Selecting the proper options, colors, and features when acquiring vehicles yields greater returns when selling vehicles at the end of their holding periods. For example, an extended cargo van costs $900 more initially. It will yield a $1,500 premium over a traditional van at resale. Picking the right model, color, and options are paramount. Maintenance, condition, and cleanliness have meaningful impact on resale as well. Properly maintaining a vehicle throughout the lifecycle will make your vehicle stand out from its peers and command a premium.
