Location: Orlando, FL

Industry: Stairlift Company

Total vehicles: 230 vehicles



As Acorn Stairlifts began expanding its fleet and operations, the challenges of managing a nationally dispersed fleet quickly became a logistical setback. The company needed to make an immediate change to help control costs and successfully grow and maintain its national fleet.


Enterprise Fleet Management proposed a comprehensive solution, providing a national program for vehicle purchases, fleet maintenance management, and coordination of license, tax and title administration. The program began providing immediate benefits. Working through Enterprise Fleet Management, Acorn Stairlifts now saves 20% on overall maintenance costs compared to its self-managed program. In addition, a bridge rental initiative allows Acorn to optimize its factory ordering process for replacement vehicles, lowering overall purchase costs and the total cost of ownership across the entire fleet.


For Acorn Stairlifts, the biggest benefit of working with Enterprise hasbeen the ability to use a national network of dealers and maintenance contacts. These relationships have helped streamline all of the company’s fleet management processes. Acorn Stairlifts has also significantly reduced downtime by partnering with Enterprise Rent-A-Car and Enterprise Truck Rental to keep its drivers on the road, even when their vehicles are in the shop for repairs. Even though the company has experienced rapid growth, it continues to see a 20% reduction in maintenance expenses.
