BriggsAmasco signs up Fleet Service GB for fleet management
West Midlands-headquartered BriggsAmasco operates a near 80-strong fleet of company cars and light commercial vehicles and has opted for a sole supply fleet management solution with FSGB.
Following a short pilot project with vehicles based at two branches, FSGB now delivers a range of services to BriggsAmasco across its 44-strong company car and 34-strong van fleets that includes: fleet management and maintenance, accident management, vehicle rental and vehicle licensing.
Matt Jones, BriggsAmasco company accountant with fleet responsibility, said: “We want our fleet management provider to become a genuine extension of our internal fleet team taking total ownership of the function to enable our business to function at peak efficiency and focus on construction.
“The pilot was a success and, while the partnership is in its early days, we are delighted with the level of service we are receiving; nothing is too much trouble and all communication is very clear. We want a hassle-free business arrangement with our fleet management supplier that has the confidence to take decisions within the parameters we set.”
The all-diesel outright purchase fleet is focused around a sole-supply Vauxhall Insignia and Astra car fleet and predominantly Mercedes-Benz Vito and Sprinter vans. The company currently operates a five-year/150,000-mile replacement policy but takes a discretionary view on new vehicles when either parameter is reached.
FSGB operates a National Price Promise maintenance programme that provides a genuine one price for the same job, on the same vehicle, anywhere in the UK.
Andy Smith, BriggsAmasco financial director, said: “We like the clarity of the National Price Promise as we have knowledge of costs up front and that greatly assists with our budgeting process.”
