Aim Acquires Part of Estes' Leasing Assets

Posted on 9/16/2020

Aim Transportation Solutions—a family-owned and -operated national leader in commercial truck leasing, rental, maintenance and dedicated contract carriage—has acquired some of Richmond, VA, based Estes Leasing’s assets. This move is part of Aim’s ongoing expansion in the greater Virginia area, which began in 2016 with the purchase of Fleming Leasing and will go far in enhancing Aim’s capabilities and service to new and existing customers in Richmond and surrounding areas.

“Through this acquisition we continue on our path of strategic growth throughout Virginia and the Greater Metro-DC & Richmond areas,” said Dan Fleming, Aim Vice President of Sales Operations, who has overseen this purchase. “This is the kind of growth that better allows us to bring Aim’s unique brand of attention, care and flexibility to more companies than ever before.”

The purchase of these Estes Leasing assets adds to Aim’s mounting number of maintained commercial trucks, now totaling more than 11,000 among Aim’s diverse customer base across the U.S.

“By way of our unparalleled maintenance and customer service,” said Fleming, “we look forward to cultivating long-lasting relationships with our newly acquired customers and welcoming them to the Aim family as seamlessly as possible.”

Aim services its customers in the area at 2602 Mechanicsville Turnpike, Richmond, VA, 23223, which is one of more than 1,000 nationwide service locations within the NationaLease network, the largest full-service truck rental and leasing organization in North America.

Aim co-president, Geoff Fleming says of this matter: “Aim is honored to partner with Estes, a fellow family-owned and -operated company, to care for their leasing customers and continue the high level of service they and other businesses in the region have come to expect and rely on.”
