2 - Set Up Vehicle Types

A Vehicle Type as defined in Limo Anywhere is a group of vehicles that share common characteristics such as Sedan, Luxury Sedan, SUV, and Limousine. Normally the most important characteristic is the rate or rates charged for that vehicle's service regardless of whether the rate is a Flat Rate or Multiplier Rate (per hour, per passenger). There is no limit to the number of Vehicle Types a company can have, but using the pricing or rate structure to determine what Vehicle Type an individual Vehicle should be assigned leads to a more logical rate structure.

NOTE: Vehicle Types are groups of vehicles and NOT the individual vehicles. Specific vehicles are managed in the 'Fleet' section.

Set up all the vehicle types available to your clients.

If you do not set up all of the vehicle types now you will more then likely have to go back and add them at a later time, which will cause you to do more work or possible over look some additional driver 'payroll schedules' in the driver payroll section.
