Vehicle Fleet Definition – Entrepreneur Small Business Encyclopedia

Does your business need a company vehicle for making deliveries,
traveling to clients’ offices, carrying equipment and more? Whether
buying or leasing a vehicle is more advantageous for you depends on
a variety of factors. And if you need several cars or vans for
salespeople or delivery drivers, you may be eligible for fleet
leasing programs that can save you big money.

Leasing a small fleet of cars, minivans or pickups is easier and
more advantageous than ever. Businesses that buy or lease 10 or
more vehicles qualify as commercial fleet buyers and are given a
fleet registration number (obtained through the dealer), entitling
them to all available manufacturers’ and dealers’ fleet incentive
programs.

While manufacturers have always offered attractive discount
programs to commercial fleet buyers, there have rarely been such
programs for the small fleet lessee requiring fewer than 10 cars.
Nowadays, however, many dealers are beginning to offer their own
programs to business owners and will work with you to get your
business. In fact, some dealers can get you a fleet registration
number even if you lease only a few cars.

To decide whether fleet leasing is for you, sit down with your
accountant and estimate what it will cost, taking into account
monthly lease payments, insurance, gas, oil, maintenance and
license fees. Will you need to hire someone to manage the fleet? If
not, how will you keep tabs on regular tune-ups and administrative
matters?

You may decide it’s more economical to give your employees an
allowance and have them lease their own cars. These and other
questions should be put to your accountant before making a decision
on fleet leasing. Always check to see what the penalties are for
terminating a lease early, especially if your cash flow tends to
fluctuate from month to month.

The typical considerations of leasing are multiplied when you
lease several vehicles, so consider these possible pitfalls before
you sign on the dotted line:

  • Higher insurance coverage. Some dealers
    require you to increase your insurance coverage since they, not
    you, own the leased vehicles. Shop around for prices before you
    order your fleet because insurance can amount to a lot of money. As
    a business owner, you can probably get a blanket policy to cover
    both your business and your fleet.
  • Overextending your hard-earned bucks. Six
    shiny new vehicles in your company parking lot may boost your ego,
    but do you really need them? It’s easy to get carried away when
    ordering a fleet, so make sure you have analyzed your needs
    thoroughly before signing on the dotted line.
  • Neglecting to ask about mileage limits.
    These can vary radically and can cost you as much as 15 to 20 cents
    for each mile you drive the car over the limit. If you cover 50,000
    miles a year, it pays to buy rather than lease.
  • Failing to compare buying price with lease
    price.
    Dealers may have vehicles on the lot they are anxious to
    get rid of and will give

Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Many different types of vehicles including carriages, trams, trains, cars, bicycles, balloons, planes, ships, airships and yachts.

Transport, or transportation, is moving people or things from one place to another place.[1] Transport can be divided into infrastructure, vehicles and operations.

Infrastructure includes roads, railways, airports, canals and pipelines. The infrastructure is the network where things are carried. Infrastructure also includes airports, railway stations, bus stations and seaports (docks). Infrastructure is usually built by governments and paid for by taxes from the citizens of a country or region. Infrastructure such as roads and railways are designed by civil engineers and urban planners.

Vehicles or vessels travel on the infrastructure. Vehicles include cars, trucks, trains and airplanes. Vehicles are usually designed by mechanical engineers. Vessels include boats, ferries, and barges which travel on canals and use docks and seaports. In the same way that trains use train stations, airplanes use airports. In the same way that trains use railway lines (train tracks), airplanes use flight paths and then fly in the sky.[2]

Operations control the system. Operations include traffic signals, railway signals and air traffic control. Operations also include the government policies (a policy is a plan of action to guide decisions and actions) and regulations (a set or group of laws and rules) used to control the system, such as tolls, fuel taxes, and traffic laws.

Transport and communication can be used instead of each other (someone could telephone a person rather than visit them). Transport traffic also needs communication. For example, air traffic control lets more airplanes fly. So, an increase of either transport or communication usually leads to an increase in the other one.

Transport, energy, and the environment[change | change source]

Transport uses a lot of energy. Most transport uses hydrocarbons (oil and gas). This can create pollution. Environmental regulations (laws) and low-pollution fuels (for example liquified natural gas) can reduce pollution. But as more vehicles are used, more pollution is created. Ethanol and biodiesel pollute less than petroleum.

Transport can be by land, water or air:

Public transport – Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Public transport (public transportation in the United States) is the transport of passengers. Passengers don’t need their own cars or other vehicles. Most public transport lets many people travel at the same time.

Ships have carried passengers since prehistoric times. Early public transport by land became important in some places in western Europe in the early 19th century. Around 1826 horsedrawn omnibuses operated in Nantes, France. Omnibuses were carts with seats for passengers to sit. About the same time, railroads began carrying passengers between towns in England. Ferries (public boats) also became bigger and more numerous then.

The main vehicles for public transport are buses, trolleybuses, trams and trains. Trams were first used in the late 1860s and used to be pulled by horses. Now trams are electric and run on a line of cable. Buses drive on the road, like cars do. Trolleybuses are like buses, but they use electricity from two wires above the road. Trains run on a track and are very fast. Many places[source?] use trams and trains as a form of public transport.

Many people who do not have cars use buses, trolleybuses, trams to go places near their house, and they use trains to go places far away. Long distance transport is usually by airline or train or other public transport. Local transport is more often private.

When using public transport people may need a ticket or card to be able to get on. On trams they get a ticket that they put in a machine and it tells them when their ticket runs out. On buses and trolleybuses they buy their ticket from the driver and put it into a machine, and on trains they use a ticket to get onto their train. A timetable tells them when they come, since they can only go when and where the transport is going.

Public transport is also good for the environment. When many people use the same vehicle, fewer cars are on the road. Fewer cars make less pollution. Cost is low, because it is very cheap to catch public transport every day, which is why even people who own a car often use public transport.

Public transportation comes in many forms:

Road[change | change source]

Rail[change | change source]

Water[change | change source]

Air[change | change source]

Sloped or vertical[change | change source]

Some of these types are often not for use by the general public, e.g. elevators in offices and apartment buildings, buses for personnel or school children, etc.

Emerging technologies[change | change source]

Stations are an important aspect of any public transportation system. Specific types include:

In addition one can get on or off of a taxi at any road where stopping is allowed. Some fixed-route buses allow getting on and off at suitable unmarked locations along that route, typically called a hail-and-ride section.

Vehicle insurance – Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Vehicle insurance (also called auto insurance or car insurance) is a kind of insurance that protects people if they have a car accident. Somebody with vehicle insurance would not have to pay the entire cost of damage a car accident causes. In many places, it is against the law to drive without vehicle insurance.

The bare minimum everyday driver should require to purchase a liability coverage. It varies from state to state and it is important to have the minimum amount as required by law. You can receive a ticket, have your driver license revoked, or even be arrested.

Liability is there to protect the other drivers on the road from the damages you cause.

Insurance prices vary a lot by the company. The car you drive can affect your auto insurance rates. If you get in a accident the repairs on the car may be different from others.

Somebody with vehicle insurance would pay what is called a premium (perhaps every month). The insurance company would decide how big the premium is, and might consider several factors. These include some of the following:

  • Age
  • Type of car
  • Type of job
  • Gender
  • Home
  • History of insurance
  • Past accidents

When you pay a premium, the insurance company agrees to pay your losses as outlined in your policy. Depending on different factors, the insurance company may not pay all or any of your losses.
