ALD Automotive supplies Foxtons with latest batch of customised MINIs
Ten vehicles – including a MINI featuring Foxtons' branding – have been delivered to date and a further 53 orders are in the pipeline with more anticipated to follow.
Foxtons, which has 29 offices across London and Surrey, operates a fleet of over 1,000 vehicles, which are predominantly customised MINIs as well as BMWs.
The estate agent leases vehicles on three-year/30,000 mile non-maintenance contracts through three contract hire companies.
Cars are ordered directly through the BMW Group and when vehicles are available Foxtons requests a contract hire quote from each provider. The company providing the most cost-effective quote then funds the vehicle.
ALD Automotive, which now runs a fleet of 57,000 vehicles having added 10,000 units in the past 12 months, was selected by Foxtons' fleet manager Ken Needham to fill a vacancy which occurred on its list of chosen vehicle providers.
He said: 'I had met with ALD Automotive on a number of occasions over the years and was aware of the company's service and ability to deliver. When a vacancy came up on our vehicle leasing supplier panel I was delighted to appoint the company.'
