You have a small business and you use a card to fuel up your fleet. The size of your fleet can vary from a few vehicles to a few dozen vehicles. In addition to keeping the records straight and vendors and drivers paid on time, you need to find other ways to keep more cash on hand and keep your business moving in the right direction.
Bottom line — You’re looking for ways to save while keeping your fleet running as efficiently as possible. Will you use a bank card, cash or look for more built-in savings and convenience with a fuel card?
Cash and a traditional bank card will simply allow you to make purchases as needed. A fleet card can help you invest in the future of your company.
First step to find the right fuel card for your company, ask yourself these simple questions:
- Which gas stations are most conveniently located where your employees drive?
- How far do your vehicles travel?
- How much do you spend on fuel?
These three questions will point you in the right direction. If you happen to be lucky enough to work in an area where there are plenty of Sheetz stations, that would be an ideal place to start.
With a fuel card from Sheetz, you give yourself access to much more than a traditional bank card. For example, like volume discounts up to 6¢ per gallon at any Sheetz location.
In addition to discounts, you also receive the added convenience of tracking your fleet expenses online. Reporting and tracking your expenses will be easier than ever before. In addition to being incredibly convenient, you can also look out for bad spending habits and find ways to make your fleet run more efficiently.
There are options like universal acceptance to fuel almost anywhere in the U.S., and driver PINs for extra security at the pump.
A typical bank card won’t really give you any of these things. Cash will get you even less.
So, ask yourself where you fuel the most and partner with that station. We want you to keep returning to Sheetz, so we offer higher discounts. It’s a great way to keep more of your cash on hand to take care of other aspects of your business.
The tracking and reporting that comes with the fuel card will show you the bigger picture into how your company spends on fuel. You’ll be able to spot troublesome patterns and make moves to rectify them. You’ll save a ton of time by keeping all of your records digitally. That’s time and money saved with a fleet card.
At Sheetz, you get the discounts and convenience of over 700 locations, matched only by our customer service and amenities.
