Yes it should. Once you drop off your personal car and get the company vehicle, then you are on company time which is compensable. Accordingly, you should be paid for the travel time from the shop to your specific work location. That having been said, the time spent travelling from your home to your shop (and back) is not compensable; it is merely your commute time.
