Fleet Assist to run open day for leasing companies & garage network

The event builds on the success of the organisation’s first Open Day two years ago and will see management level attendance at come from many of the UK’s largest vehicle leasing companies including: Agility Fleet, Alphabet, Days Contract Hire, Fleet Hire, Grosvenor Contracts Leasing, Hitachi Capital Vehicle Solutions, JCT600 Contracts, Lex Autolease, Marshall Leasing, TCH Leasing, Tusker, Venson Automotive Solutions, Windsor Vehicle Leasing and Zenith.

Currently almost 150 garage representatives are planning to attend the Open Day where they will:

Participate in group question and answer sessions with leasing company representatives and discuss key trends and operational issues

Be able to have one-to-one discussions with individual leasing companies

Meet the Fleet Assist team and receive demonstrations of the company’s systems and processes during an office guided tour.

Additionally, Citroen is supporting the Open Day with a ride and drive giving delegates a first class opportunity to drive the manufacturer’s latest models around a special local route.

Exhibiting at the Open Day will be a number of Fleet Assist’s strategic partners including international oil and gas company Total, which will have its Lotus-branded F1 driving simulator on it stand, Autodata, automotive industry charity BEN, Bosch, the Institute of the Motor Industry, Rent to Repair, Thule and Vehicle Visuals.

Fleet Assist was launched more than a decade ago and has expanded to the extent that it has business partnerships with almost 30 contract hire and leasing companies collectively operating some 600,000 vehicles.

The firm provides contract hire and leasing firms with a national network of more 7,000 service outlets without the cost and challenges of setting up and managing such an operation themselves.

Among the key benefits are pre-agreed terms and conditions, pricing and service standards with quality management and performance monitoring. There is also an optional technical authorisation team to validate all SMR work undertaken should clients wish to outsource the function.

Commercial director Vincent St Claire said: ‘This year we are focusing on the “meet the fleet” element, as feedback from our garages clearly highlights a strong desire to have increased interaction with our leasing company customers.

‘The fleet market is all about partnerships and companies and their suppliers working hand-in-hand with each other to deliver an even better mutually beneficial service. Bringing together the two sides of the Fleet Assist business – our leasing company customers and our garage network – will deliver further benefits to all parties nationwide.’
