New service launched to help fleets manage vehicle redeployment
The firm is offering a range of services such as vehicle appraisal, refurbishment and storage facilities to help manage a car or van through every eventuality whilst they are in service – from an employee leaving and the car being handed back mid contract to a van being collected, safety checked and re-allocated to a new project on a new site.
New business development director, David Stanley who joined Ace in November 2009, explained why the company has launched the service: 'When visiting customers, more and more of their vehicles were changing status and being redeployed mid way through their contract hire or rental agreement. Often this was being carried out by the company’s own employees, vehicles were left unused for weeks and weren’t being safety checked, serviced or repaired before reallocation.
'Ace can now manage this entire process on behalf of a company saving them time and money and making sure those vehicles don’t stand idle and meet in full all Duty of Care obligations,' he added.
The firm says that access to a new refurbishment, inspection and storage facility in Doncaster for 1,000 vehicles and expanding its own resource to nearly 100 plated drivers has enabled the launch of this new product. Ace has also relaunched its website www.acedel.co.uk, while relocating its UK headquarters to Wembley, north west London. Coinciding with the relocation to Wembley, Ace has been taken over by Nihal Opatha. Nihal has been a board member of the company since 2000 and an Ace employee for over 15 years.
