NOTE: Student Organizations that want to rent a vehicle need to have a Student Organization Vehicle Request Form approved by the Student Leadership and Involvement Office—Husky Motors can’t rent a vehicle to you without it.

If someone other than the driver designated on your reservation confirmation is going to pick up or return the vehicle, you must update the reservation. If you don’t, you will not be able to sign in or out, or receive or return keys.
All drivers must be registered in FleetCommander and be included on your rental reservation to be an approved driver during your rental.
Motor Vehicle Record (MVR)
Given the requirements of our insurance provider the University has developed the following Motor Vehicle Record (MVR) verification procedure for all students, faculty, or staff members who wish to drive a Husky Motor owned vehicle.
Please read the updated Policies and Procedures prior to renting and driving a vehicle from Husky Motors
For your convenience, our office can provide vehicle deliveries by request as part of your reservation, including to the Houghton County Memorial Airport for departing and arriving guests and employees. The $15 one-way fee is added to the rental bill.
If you return a vehicle to us without a full gas tank, a $6.50 per gallon fee is added to your rental bill.
If you pick up a vehicle from Husky Motors that does not have a full gas tank, fill up at a local gas station with your WEX card right away, and let us know when you return the vehicle. Leave a note under comments on the key kiosk: “Filled tank, was not full when picked up.”
