Harveys is wholly owned by the Steinhoff UK retail group which also owns Cargo, Reid Furniture and the largest UK bed retailing business through its Bensons for Beds, Sleepmasters and Bed Shed chains.

Roddy Graham, commercial director at Leasedrive, said: 'An existing customer of our rental management division, we were doubly delighted to win the tender process for Harveys’ contract hire business and are already capturing extra business from within the group. 

'Previously, Harveys had adopted a multi-supplier approach involving nine suppliers including brokers. However, on the retirement of its fleet manager, Harveys undertook a review and opted for a solus supply outsourced agreement which we secured against stiff competition.

'Harveys was impressed with not only our online totally-integrated fleet management system, Drive:Manager, but also our willingness to offer a bespoke service solution. This includes a dedicated helpdesk and an individually designed website offering self-help and fleet policy acknowledgement.

'We have assisted Harveys with a vehicle manufacturer review to improve company car driver choice and provide a better quality service as part of an eligible employee’s total reward package. We have also provided financial modelling to determine the optimum financial funding route and are providing a duty of care service for cash allowance drivers.'
