Procedure for Weekend Van Rental
Reason for the Procedure:
To maximize the use of fleet vans throughout the weekend days (Friday, Saturday, Sunday).
There have been an increasing number of requests from groups to reserve fleet vans for multiple weekend days. Many of these requests have been denied because vans have already been reserved for one of the requested weekend days. This results in groups reserving vans with off-campus rental agencies at much higher rates than charged by the University’s Fleet Office and fleet vehicles idle for some portion of the weekend.
Reservations for single and multiple weekend day requests will be accepted. However, a multiple weekend rental request will be given priority up until 10 calendar days prior to the requested rental day. If a one day weekend rental reservation conflicts with a multiple weekend request prior to 10 calendar days of the requested date, the one day reservation will be cancelled. The Fleet Office will contact and assist a department in finding an off-campus rental if a reservation must be cancelled due to this situation.
