During GATS, Ryder will offer all attendees – not just Ryder pre-owned vehicle purchasers – special event pricing at 20 percent off the first year of a prepaid preventive maintenance plan. Attendees who visit the Ryder booth can also enter into a daily raffle for a chance to win a prize pack that includes a gas grill, Yeti cooler, and much more.

Ryder pre-owned vehicle purchasers now have the added benefit of selecting from a variety of Ryder SelectCare Preventive Maintenance packages that can range from one to three years. Customers now receive greater flexibility by having the option to prepay for their package or finance it along with their vehicle as one monthly payment. By selecting preventive maintenance services, customers will have access to Ryder’s network of 800 service facilities and 5,900 certified technicians at economical pricing for the full term of the package. In addition, customers receive discounted pricing for any necessary repairs, parts, and tires outside of the preventive maintenance services.

During GATS, Ryder’s Manager of Finance & Vehicle Sales Development, Jason Russell, will deliver the opening remarks during the Partner in Business Seminars, which Ryder has sponsored for the past six years. The free, one hour Partner in Business Seminars take place each year during GATS and are conducted to assist fleet managers, owner operators, and commercial transportation professionals with improving their bottom line through reducing costs, promoting efficiency, and making better business decisions. Attendees will also receive a copy of the Partners in Business manual that provides practical financial tips as well as tax and equipment management strategies.

Ryder has the largest retail network of one-owner pre-owned vehicles for sale in North America with 52 locations, selling more than 18,000 vehicles a year. In addition, Ryder’s international sales/export team helps customers purchase in the U.S. for export to locations in Africa, Asia, Europe, the Caribbean, and Central and South America, to get the vehicles they need to keep their businesses in high gear. Ryder’s pre-owned vehicle inventory includes commercial and heavy-duty trucks consisting of tractors, trailers, straight trucks, panel and cube vans, refrigerated trucks, stake trucks, and more.

Vehicles that are Ryder CertifiedTM have been owned and maintained by solely Ryder for their entire operating life and come with a 30-day warranty and a complete vehicle maintenance history report. Ryder also offers Ryder VerifiedTM pre-owned commercial vehicles where customers can build their fleet with a fully Department of Transportation compliant vehicle at a cost that works for them. With Ryder ReclassifiedTM, customers can search through an inventory of “As-is,” damaged, and scrap vehicles for a fixer-upper option, or to utilize the parts, allowing the flexibility to fit their specific business needs.
