Meet the auto park fleet Team Members.

Feel free to contact us with any questions. We’re always happy to help!

Bob Battjes

Sales Manager

We are thrilled to have Bob as a member of our team he brings tremendous auto industry knowledge to our team.

My background is primarily from the retail automobile business where my family owned and operated a Pontiac Dealership in Elkhart IN for over 46 years.  We were consistently ranked in the top ten for all GM dealerships in the United States for customer satisfaction.  My goal is to bring that same level of customer satisfaction to the step van and cutaway van business.  Every year over 70% of our business comes to us from satisfied previous customers, their friends and fellow contractors that they refer to us.  If you are looking for the right truck at the right price, make the right call to Auto Park Fleet, I truly believe that you will discover that it was the right decision.

Sales Team

Dan handles Parcel Delivery and our Canadian sales. He sells a lot of trucks and his customers love him.

“I have been in the retail automobile business since April 1982, and for 32 years enjoyed working with all different kinds of people from many walks of life. The last ten years I was the GSM for Battjes Pontiac in Elkhart Indiana where our primary focus was customer satisfaction, and being rated as high as 5th in the country for total customer satisfaction. In fact we never referred to anyone as our “customers,” they all became our “friends.”

Since joining Auto Park Fleet in March 2014, I have enjoyed talking to and helping many of you. I am excited to deliver a level of service which will keep us doing business for many years to come, and look forward to many of us becoming friends in the future.“
