Fleet FAQ? Fleet Management & Leasing

Q. What is important to ask about when it comes to customer service?

October 16, 2017, by - Also by this author

A. Your contact options should never be limited to an 800 number.  If you have a question about your fuel program or need to talk about upfit options, you should not be forced through an automated phone labyrinth only to end up talking to a customer service center person who has no idea who you are.  Ask who your contacts will be.  If the only answer is “You can call our 800 number anytime,” take them off the list immediately.  You should have direct contact with the team members responsible for the services and technology that will become integral to your fleet functionality and they should care as much as you do about your operational needs. And, this level of support should be included in any baseline agreement.
