FleetNet Announces a Cost Savings Alternative to Fixed/Full Maintenance Lease Contracts

Press Release – (Cherryville, North Carolina, April 7, 2009) In today’s economic downturn with minimal availability of expansion or upgrading capital, many companies are entertaining the leasing option for replacement equipment rather than purchase. This paradigm shift will stimulate more focus on the importance of maintenance management regarding the maintenance costs associated with the operation of these units. FleetNet America, Inc announces an alternative to a fixed/full lease maintenance program called MAIN (Maintenance As Is Needed). This program includes very minimal monthly fees designed to cover administration of scheduling and follow-up in addition to un-scheduled maintenance needs. The primary advantage to the MAIN program is that no maintenance will be performed or charged to the lessee unless it is needed. Under a MAIN program, the minimal utilization of the leased equipment would directly reduce the scheduled and un-scheduled maintenance costs.

FleetNet America, Inc. is a third-party vendor management company that coordinates emergency roadside services and maintenance management services for commercial equipment.
