Vehicle Types offer a way to group similar Vehicles in Fleetio. Most Lists and Reports throughout Fleetio allow you to Filter based on Type, so this also makes it a powerful way to categorize your Vehicles.
Fleetio includes many pre-defined Vehicle Types such as Car, Bus, Trailer, Van, and more. You have the option to Edit or Delete these Types, as well as Add your own custom Types.
Manage Vehicle Types
Navigate to Settings > Vehicles > Vehicle Types via the left sidebar menu, or click your Company drop-down menu and select Account Settings:
Click the + Add Vehicle Type button to add new (1), or find the Edit and Delete options for an existing Type in the More Actions menu at the end of the row (2):
Set Default Vehicle Type
You can set any single Vehicle Type in the list to be the Default which will be pre-selected when adding a new Vehicle. This value is automatically filled, but can be changed at any time.
Filter and Report by Type
The Vehicle List screen and various Reports will include easy Filter options so that you can narrow results displayed by Vehicle Type.
