With an aging fleet that was large and underutilized, the Lucas Metropolitan Housing Authority (LMHA) found that as maintenance costs were steadily increasing, the reliability of their vehicles was steadily decreasing.
LMHA worked with Enterprise Fleet Management to find an optimal Total Cost of Ownership for its vehicles. An initial plan was established to cycle out vehicles at regular intervals, and LMHA saw large gains from the sale of the under-utilized portion of their fleet, which freed up funds to be used in other areas. The agency also took advantage of Enterprise’s Full Maintenance program, which increased efficiency and simplified their budgeting process. Additional funds were saved during the vehicle acquisition process since Enterprise negotiated directly with the manufacturer.
