Annual Fleet Review – Plan for 2022

by Jim Peplinski   Posted on Wednesday, April 7, 2021


For most people, we have only really just started getting into the 2021 year. However, when it comes to your fleet, it’s already time to be thinking about next year’s fleet requirements. We have heard from numerous customers and others in the industry that 2021 was very disappointing for all major vehicle manufacturers in terms of supplier constraints, production timelines, dealer inventory levels, and especially the availability of trucks/vans in general.

It may seem early to start planning your fleet moves for next year, but the 2022 order banks are starting to open now (for some models), with the rest following a month or two after. At Jim Peplinski Leasing, we highly recommend all of our clients start planning their fleet updates now. Getting your orders placed immediately will help you avoid a delayed delivery date crisis and ensure you have the vehicles you need WHEN you need them. Manufacturer’s have communicated they expect a surge of factory orders to hit the order banks when they start to open. This will lead to longer order-to-delivery timeframes than what we have been accustomed to in the past.

Ordering early also allows you to be price protect by avoiding the price increases that inevitably occur throughout the year. Waiting too long could potentially mean another year operating a truck or van with potential maintenance issues or not being able to capitalize on solid resale conditions.

Jim Peplinski Leasing is here to help make your fleet management easier. We can save you hours of time-consuming work by locating the vehicles you need with our access to a wide range of vendors and dealers across Canada. We deliver work-ready vehicles to you anywhere across the country. Our reputation as a trusted purchaser and seller speaks for itself.

Don’t struggle through another year with sub-par vehicles as part of your fleet. Be proactive and start planning your 2022 model purchases now. Jim Peplinski Leasing has the experience and expertise to help you access the trucks and vans you need to help your business thrive. Reach out today, and let’s get started.
