ST. LOUIS, July 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Coastal Vineyard Care Associates, a full-service vineyard management company, is partnering with Enterprise Fleet Management to replace its aging fleet. The 27 new vehicles provided by Enterprise will save the company an estimated $10,000 per year.
Serving customers in the Santa Barbara area, including the Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Maria Valley, Coastal Vineyard Care Associates employees average more than 100 miles a day – helping customers in need of vineyard farming, management, design and installation.
"Enterprise Fleet Management helped us replace our nine-year-old fleet with brand new, consistently branded vehicles," said Eric Djafroodi, Business Operations Manager, Coastal Vineyard Care Associates. "This makes it easier and more comfortable for our employees to do their jobs, reduces downtime and saves us money that we can re-invest into our business."
Enterprise Fleet Management is a privately-held, full-service fleet management business for companies, government agencies and organizations operating medium-sized fleets of 20 or more vehicles, as well as those seeking an alternative to employee reimbursement programs. The business operates a network of more than 50 fully-staffed offices, which manages a fleet of more than 430,000 vehicles in the U.S. and Canada.
"Helping a small and growing business reduce costs while improving its branding, efficiency and bottom line is our goal," said Zeke Jenkins, Senior Account Executive for Enterprise Fleet Management in Southern California. "We developed a custom program for Coastal Vineyard Care Associates that enables the company to start saving money in the first month, while enjoying all the benefits of a new fleet, such as reduced maintenance time and costs, reduced fuel use and increased employee satisfaction."
Enterprise Fleet Management will conduct ongoing use and performance monitoring, as well as track fuel purchases and miles driven − ensuring that all of Coastal Vineyard Care Associates vehicles are properly and regularly maintained. Enterprise Fleet Management also will handle licensing, registration and auto insurance, as well as provide fuel and maintenance cards to cover vehicle expenses.
