    Vehicle Rental Requests

    A Speedchart or Grant must be provided in order to reserve vehicles.
    Vehicle requests can be made using any of the following methods.

    • Phone: 928-523-2469

    We recommend customers call if departure times are outside hours of operation (6am-5pm, Mon-Fri).

    • After-hours weekday departures - keys can be picked up 6am-4pm the day before departure.
    • Early Monday departures (before 6am) – keys can be picked up 6am-4pm the preceding Friday.
    • Saturday and Sunday departures - keys must be picked up the preceding Friday, 6am-4pm.
    • In most situations, no extra daily fee will be charged when keys are picked up for departures outside of hours of operation.


    Outside Vendors

    If Fleet Services is unable to fulfill a vehicle request, outside vendors Budget or Enterprise may be utilized. We still process and bill these rentals. We are often able to have these vehicles delivered to Fleet Services for pick-up. However, during the busiest times overwhelming requests and limited parking make delivery difficult, so we may require pick-up at the vendor.

    • Reservations for vendor locations outside of Flagstaff can be made through Fleet Services.
    • Outside vendors for charter buses are available.



    Limited, designated parking is available near Fleet Services for personal vehicles with any NAU parking permit. Parking at any other location on campus is subject to Parking Services regulations.

    Outside vendor vehicles may be returned to designated parking spaces at Fleet Services. Parking at any other location on campus is subject to Parking Services regulations.
