Having been a new business start-up no more than eight years ago, we fully understand the problems involved in setting up a new business.These can include a lack of corporate discounts due to insufficient financial accounting information, not being granted business account status as a result, and often having to pay retail rates for vital pieces of equipment such as cars, vans, and office furniture and IT equipment.
Similarly sourcing vehicles to provide mobility for the new start-up to deliver goods to customers or mobilise its sales force can be a major issue, due to the lack of financial history of the new business, which is why we’re offering our One Stop Fleet Shop!
This includes offering a number of fleet management services that small businesses may not normally be able to access, such as designing legally-compliant and environmentally-sound fleet policies; identifying relevant vehicles for the business, both cars and vans; providing both long and short term vehicles at competitive, corporate rates; carrying out licence checks on employees; and handling mileage claims.
Risk management services can include sourcing appropriate insurance policies for smaller companies who may struggle to find partners in the early days; and carrying out risk assessments on the new business start-up’s activities.
“When you start a small company it’s an exciting time with every day seeming to bring new challenges and opportunities, and small businesses need a very sharp focus to react to them.
What you don’t need are headaches, distractions and limitations, especially when it comes to something as fundamental as ordering new business assets, mobilising a sales force or simply delivering your products out to customers.
We understand these problems as, not too many years ago, we were a start-up ourselves and we fully empathise with those companies that are struggling to order normal business assets without the necessary credit worthiness because they have not been trading long enough.
And we want to partner with small businesses to help them develop the right strategy for their fleets, whether that be permanent vehicle provision or just supplying temporary vehicles when needed – whatever the business needs to get up and running properly.
We are happy to support new and small companies in these vital ways, easing both the headache and financial strain of an essential part of their business, by sharing our expertise, taking the fleet off their worry list and reducing cost, while at the same time growing the partnership as they begin to grow their business,” – Andrew Leech, Managing Director
