General Motors has announced it’s launching a new fleet parts discount program that could save fleet managers and companies save money when seeking service. The new program, announced during NTEA’s The Work Truck Show, the largest exhibit of work trucks in North America, offers substantial discounts on more than 450,000 GM Genuine Parts and ACDelco maintenance and repair parts.
“Fleet managers are the most sophisticated vehicle buyers in the industry,” said Ed Peper, U.S. vice president, GM Fleet. “They have a job to do, drivers to keep safe and investments to protect. A maintenance program built around GM-designed and factory-certified parts helps address all three of these priorities. And with our new GM Fleet Parts Discount Program, we can help drive an even stronger bottom line, too.”
The program is open to any small business, commercial, government, or rental customer with a GM Fleet Account Number and at least five vehicles in service are eligible. The program is also available for vehicles in fleets that are not GM vehicles, as ACDelco offers parts for several makes and models.
Services will be available through nearly 1,400 participating Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, and Cadillac dealers across all 50 states. That includes more than 500 Chevrolet and GMC Business Elite dealers, too. The program works by offering discounts based on the type of part and the size of the fleet. Discounts can reach as much as 32 percent off the list price.
Fleet customers who purchase parts through GM Business Elite dealers receive a bonus. Customers receive priority service scheduling, priority extended parts and services, round-the-clock towing, job-ready loaner vehicles, business financing and leasing options, and business vehicle remarketing and no-hassle disposal.
“Our goal at GM Fleet is to provide the best product and business solutions in the industry,” said Peper. “That’s why we are expanding our truck and crossover portfolio and working so hard to deliver programs that improve every aspect of the ownership experience for fleets of all sizes.”
Also during the NTEA Work Truck Show, Ford Motor Company displayed a full arsenal of updated trucks, vans, and rolling chassis, including the new F-600. Meanwhile, FCA debuted the Ram HD Tradesman.
