What Fleet Services Offers

ABOUT FLEET SERVICES

Fleet Services is the university's resource for government-owned vehicles. As one of the ten Auxiliary Services at the U, our department offers convenient and flexible transportation solutions, including short and long-term leases, repair and maintenance services, fueling resources and more.

Here are the main services our department offers: 

 

DAILY VEHICLE RENTALS

Authorized and eligible university students, faculty and staff may rent government-owned vehicles through Fleet Services. This rental service is great for staff members who are traveling out of town for a conference or a student organization in need of transportation, for example.

We offer sedans, trucks, mini-vans and cargo vans. Renters must be at least 18 years of age, possess a valid driver's license (which must be presented at time of rental), view the Defensive Driving video, and have no more than two accidents within the last 12 months.

DEPARTMENT VEHICLE PURCHASES

Some departments may need a university-owned vehicle to accomplish work-related tasks and travel for business purposes. Fleet Services manages the vehicle purchasing process and works directly with departments to find solutions that will meet their travel needs.

Contact Dave Rees (dave.rees@utah.edu) to learn more about purchasing department vehicles.

 

REPAIRS AND MAINTENANCE

Regular maintenance is the key to keeping your department vehicle in good condition. We offer repairs and maintenance services for university-owned vehicles. If your vehicle is department-owned, we will repair your vehicle and bill for services. Preventive maintenance is scheduled for your vehicle every six months. Our shop, located directly on campus, provides the following maintenance services and more:

  • Oil changes
  • Tire repair and replacement
  • Tune-ups
  • Repair/replace brakes
  • Emissions and safety inspection

ON-SITE FUEL STATION

While the fuel station on campus is owned and maintained by the State of Utah Fuel Program, Fleet Services helps oversee the on-site fuel station. Only university-owned vehicles may access the fuel site with a state GasCard. The site offers unleaded and diesel fuel at an average of $0.05 cheaper than outside vendors. The fuel tank is located east of the Fleet Services building on the north side of South Campus Drive.
