Why Merchants

The Merchants Difference

Like you, we recognize there are a lot of fleet management companies out there. So how do you distinguish one leasing partner that promises you “the works” from the rest? Quite simply, only Merchants is founded on a philosophy that puts you in the driver’s seat when it comes to customizing your fleet.

While most fleet management companies may try to tell you what they think you need, too often it’s the same set of choices from the limited options available to every other fleet. We’ve always believed that our customers deserve a wider set of potential solutions. That’s why we work with you to help determine the ideal solution. We don’t give generic recommendations. Instead, we take the time to learn about your organization—your size, your goals, your history, and your risks. Then we work with you to create a customized, innovative program designed specifically for you.

At Merchants, we believe in a consultative approach that allows you to get expert advice on everything from leasing, insurance and maintenance programs to deciding on exactly which vehicles fit your needs. With more solutions to offer, we’re better able to tailor programs that deliver the most value to our clients.

The way we see it, a fleet is like a fingerprint—no two are exactly alike. Each one has unique requirements, challenges and goals that deserve unique solutions. As a business with active owner involvement, we understand this firsthand.

Merchants Fleet Management is able to provide a wide variety of fleet management options. For instance, open-end leases with unbundled services and self-insurance are popular solutions for many fleets, while closed-end leases that include budgeted maintenance with traditional insurance coverage can offer surprising, low-cost alternatives.


Our owners are directly involved in the business, which means you’ll get fast answers, unparalleled service, and the financial stability of a private company that answers solely to our most important stakeholders: our customers. We’re not part of a larger organization, which means we have 100% control over our funding, and our company’s direction.


We work with you to structure a plan with exactly the options and services that make the most sense for your organization.
