Once a fleet vehicle gets so many miles on it, repairs and maintenance start adding up fast. Eventually the vehicle hits a tipping point where the expense of the repairs exceeds the value of the vehicle or the risks of safety or performance could jeopardize the job. At this point we would refer to this as the end of the vehicle’s economic life. While a fleet owner may salvage the vehicle to get some financial return, the salvage value is considerably lower than the cost of a new fleet vehicle. But purchasing a new vehicle isn’t the only option.
