Merchants Fleet will provide vehicle leasing and management services to ServiceMaster’s fleet of more than 10,000 vehicles, as well as service support for its many franchisees.
ServiceMaster ranked No. 25 in Automotive Fleet’s Fleet 300 ranking in 2019. Its fleet was primarily comprised of Class 1-2 trucks, but the company also had a large sedan presence, which accounted for roughly 20 percent of its fleet, according to Automotive Fleet.
“We’re thrilled to partner with ServiceMaster and provide them with an innovative, industry-leading fleet experience,” said Brendan Keegan, CEO of Merchants Fleet. “In their industry, having the right vehicles for the job and finding ways to reduce costs without sacrificing speed and efficiency in serving their customers is critical. We look forward to assisting them in these areas while also discovering new areas of opportunity.”
The company offerings can meet the needs of fleets as small as single vehicles up to large-scale fleets. Merchants Fleet has flexible terms from three months to seven years.
The New Hampshire-based fleet management firm relocated to its new headquarters in September 2019 and reports record growth with increasing sales.
ServiceMaster Global Holdings Inc., headquartered in Memphis, Tenn., provides termite and pest control, cleaning and restoration services in both residential and commercial markets. It is the parent company of Copesan, Terminix and Terminix Commercial.
