The Fleet Services Garage maintains and services the fleet of automobiles, buses, grounds equipment, heavy duty trucks and other vehicles owned by the University of Michigan. Our highly trained maintenance staff perform maintenance and repairs on all vehicles.

All fleet vehicles are on a 1 year/5000 mile preventative maintenance schedule. Our technicians will install a decal on the windshield of your fleet vehicle as a reminder for when to schedule service.

Routine Maintenance

All vehicles leased through Fleet Services include maintenance as part of the monthly lease cost. To schedule your fleet vehicle for maintenance, please contact Fleet Garage below to schedule an appointment.

To schedule maintenance for your heavy-duty truck, grounds equipment, forklift, or other heavy equipment, please contact Heavy Equipment Garage below to schedule an appointment.

Billable Items

The following are not considered part of routine maintenance and are billed to the using department:

  • Unreported accident damage
  • Extensive cleaning, and vehicle modifications.

All vehicle modifications or changes to your fleet vehicle must be processed through the Fleet Services Garage. Submit a request for Garage Services to outline your service needs. All costs related to the modification are billed to the using department and not part of the monthly lease cost.


If your fleet vehicle has a mechanical issue or is involved in an accident that prohibits the safe operation of the vehicle, please contact Garage Services below.


If you have been involved in a vehicle accident, secure a safe situation for all vehicle occupants. Call 911 to notify local authorities of your circumstances and needs. In the glove box of your fleet vehicle there is a blue card that serves as both your vehicle registration and proof of insurance. Present this to the local law enforcement. Be sure to obtain important contact information regarding the incident, such as police officers’ name and police report number. If an injury has occurred, please contact Risk Management. Within 48 hours of the incident, complete and submit a Driver’s Report of Vehicle Damage to our office.
