Fleet Rental Policy
In an effort to improve communications and tracking of Vehicle Rental Request Applications we have incorporated the submission of MWSU Vehicle Request Application with our Mojo Work Order System. The Vehicle Request Form will be used for the vehicle reservation. The Mojo Work Order will be used to notify the requestor of the budget charges.
All rental cars/vans/buses for University business should be reserved through Mojo. To reserve a vehicle through Mojo, go to the Physical Plant Website, click on the Work Orders tab. Click on the New Ticket tab in the top right hand corner. Select Maintenance Request from the drop down. Select Vehicles for the type of request. Select Rent from the drop down for type of Vehicle request. Indicate the dates of travel, type of vehicle, car/van/bus, and any special instructions in the description. Fill in the remaining questions. Click on Create Ticket. The MWSU Vehicle Request Application will come directly to the Physical Plant Office.
All car/van/bus requests need to be submitted at least two weeks prior to the travel date.
An automated confirmation email will be sent to the contact listed on the Mojo work order when work order is received.
If the Physical Plant does not have a fleet rental vehicle available, the Physical Plant will obtain one from another rental agency for the individual or the department. A confirmation email will be sent to the driver prior to your travel once the vehicle has been assigned. Lockboxes with access codes are available for after-hours or weekend pickups.
The Physical Plant will handle all reservations for all rental vehicles. Enterprise currently has the State Contract. You will be notified of the rental company information and options available in the confirmation email.
Note: Requestors will pick up and return rental vehicles directly to the rental car company.
Requests may be denied based on vehicle availability. Prompt notification will be given if there is difficulty filling a request.
No shelled nuts or seeds are allowed in cars, vans or buses. Cleaning fees up to $100 may be accessed to cover cleaning costs.
