Company Turning Over 2015 BMWs In Top Condition

PLEASANTON, Calif. — When Bill Wheeler of Black Tie Transportation bought his first batch of 2015 BMW 740Lis, he planned to follow a strict two-year sedan fleet turnover policy.

His discriminating clients in the San Francisco Bay Area often prefer the latest model luxury vehicles.

So Wheeler has eight of the sedans for sale now on to make way for the 2018 MY BMW 740. But the back story here is why he’s keeping about 20 of the 2015 MY sedans beyond his two-year turnover policy.

“We were on two-year flip but we have not had one single problem with 32 of these besides regular wear and tear on the brakes and tires,” Wheeler told LCT. “So we’ll keep most of them another year and run them another 50,000 to 100,000 miles and then re-evaluate.”

Wheeler has kept the BMW sedans in immaculate condition through his fleet schedule. The eight sedans are available at 125,000 to 135,000 miles for only $20,000 each. They have been almost exclusively used for single rider corporate clients to and from airports. The sedans have a mechanical, interior, and exterior ratings of 10.


Black Tie is also selling three 2014 Grech Motors Sprinter limo vans for about $60,000 each.


Black Tie Transportation, founded in 1986, runs 86 fleet vehicles ranging from sedans to Temsa motorcoaches throughout the San Francisco Bay region.
