Grow Your Business by Selling Small Fleet

  • Posted by Heather Tucker | 2 min read

When someone says “fleet,” what pops to mind? For many, the word fleet conjures up a line of semi tractor trailers. But in the world of small business, a fleet can be made up of a mixture of vehicles—all which look different across business classes.  

What is a Small Fleet? 

Commercial customers who have between 10 power units – any combination of cars, trucks and vans – and 40 vehicles, including trailers, are eligible for Progressive’s Small Fleet program. A power unit is defined as a motorized vehicle licensed for road use. 

In practical terms, this means that a landscaping company that has three cars, five pickup trucks, and two dump trucks has a small fleet. A restaurant that offers catering has two SUVs, a pickup truck, a food truck, and six minivans? They also have a fleet.
