Need Vehicles?
November 2020 Update
Updated November 18, 2020
New and used vehicle inventories across North America are very limited due to COVID-19. As the pandemic continues on, each month presents different challenges for manufacturers, parts suppliers, fleet managers, business owners, and others associated with the industry.

Last month, we reported significant shortages on aftermarket upfitting such as seat covers, mud flaps, grill covers, and running boards, causing delays up to 6 weeks. In addition to this, we are now seeing vehicle production delays due to parts shortages caused by the pandemic.

Factory Orders
Due to various parts shortages you will have more success if you are flexible on specs when placing factory orders now. This could determine whether or not your order will be built during this model year. 

Dealer Stocks
New: due to poor availability over the past few months, most vehicles landing on dealer lots are pre-sold.

If you are flexible on manufacturer, specs, and colour, Summit Fleet will have a better chance finding the Stock vehicles you need. Dealer markups are based on supply and demand. Stocks are currently $3,000 to $5,000 more than factory orders.
