WARRENVILLE, Ill. — IC Bus and International dealers have a new credit offering for customers who need the flexibility and payment options of a purchasing program. The “Fleet Charge ONE” card is dealer-specific and offers bus and truck owners 30-day terms on their parts and service purchases, while giving them more control and tracking ability for expenses.
“These are challenging times for a lot of small fleet and independent truck and bus owners, so it’s nice to know your dealer can work with you and provide flexible payment options through Fleet Charge ONE,” said Rob Stritch, Fleet Charge manager for Navistar Parts. “Never before has a card like this been available to so many owners, both with 30-day terms and no enrollment fees.”
Credit is given at the discretion of the IC Bus and International dealerships.
Participation in the Fleet Charge ONE program also enables bus and truck owners to easily participate in Navistar’s Customer Parts Recovery program, which allows customers to return unused, obsolete or surplus parts from their stock to receive credit for future purchases.
Additional Fleet Charge ONE benefits include instant credit recognition at International or IC Bus dealerships as well as access to Fleet Charge online expense tracking tools, such as invoice searching and downloadable spreadsheets.
For more information about the Fleet Charge ONE card and its accompanying program, customers should contact their local International or IC Bus dealerships.
The initial rollout will showcase companies in such areas as attendance, camera technology, GPS, fleet maintenance, and parent portal.
