Purchase/Lease a Vehicle

VCU departments are welcome to submit a request to purchase or lease a vehicle. Our Fleet Manager will work with you directly to select the right vehicle to suit your needs. 

The Vehicle Request Form must be completed and submitted for all potential vehicle purchases and leases. Required signatures must be obtained for submission and vehicles may not be acquired without prior written approval. Forms may be submitted via email or fax. Please provide sufficient time for review and processing. For additional assistance, please contact the Fleet team at (804) 828-7490.


Short-term Vehicle Rentals

No need to be without a vehicle when your department’s vehicle is getting repaired. Short-term vehicles, typically out-of-service vehicles in good condition, are available for only $20/business day and include fuel and mileage. Travel is restricted to within Richmond City limits. Usage charges are added to your existing repair work order. Vehicles for this optional program are based upon availability and the vehicle may be different than the unit being repaired (e.g. a pickup truck for a van). Business operation days are Monday through Friday. Feel free to call the Fleet Maintenance Shop at (804) 828-7490 for more information.
