Subscription and billing
Which credit cards do you accept?
Visa, MasterCard, Discover and AMEX
Can you send us an invoice so we can pay by check?
Sure thing, but you'll have to prepay for a full year. The good news is that you get $1 off per vehicle per month for purchasing an annual plan. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us to get started.
Users and Accounts
What is the difference between an account and a user?
A User is a person with an email address & password. Vehicles belong to Accounts instead of Users so Accounts basically provide a way to group your vehicles.
Each Account is separate from a billing perspective and each has its own billing information.
How do permissions work for different users?
Fleetio has a super flexible permission system. Read about the details in our Help Center.

Can you import my data from another system or the spreadsheet we've been using?
Likely so if you can get all your vehicle information into a spreadsheet. Contact us and let's chat about it.
Vehicles and equipment
Do we have to buy any hardware to use Fleetio?
Nope, Fleetio works without the need for any in-vehicle tracking devices so there's no upfront costs to start using it for your fleet.
Does Fleetio work for equipment as well?
Fleetio is flexible enough to work for any asset that you would like to keep up with. You can set up preventative maintenance schedules in addition to logging services and expenses. Be sure to set equipment tracking units to "hours" so you can have an accurate usage history.
Can I track usage in kilometers or engine hours?
Yes! You can track usage in miles, kilometers or hours. The usage "type" can be set for each vehicle or piece of equipment.
Is it possible to setup reminders for custom service/maintenance tasks?
Yes, you can add service reminders for more service types by adding "custom service types" for your account. Click the "Service Types" link under the Account drop-down link on the top navigation bar, then you can add/edit your custom service types from there.
Your custom service types will then be available as options on both the Service Reminder form, as well as the Service Entry form. You'll see them in addition to all the built-in options.
