Sinclair Finance and Leasing signs up to Fleet Assist garage network
The fast-growing fleet leasing specialist has opted to use Fleet Assist’s nationwide network of more than 7,000 garages to undertake service, maintenance and repair work on vehicles supplied to customers across the UK.
Sinclair Finance and Leasing, which operates a fleet of more than 3,000 vehicles, will also use Fleet Assist to provide an out-of-hours call service for its company car and van drivers.
Kerry Thomas, director of the Bridgend-headquartered firm, said: ‘We operate nationally and our fleet size is growing. We therefore required a best-in-class garage network providing full national coverage, and a network management company that is proven to deliver service, maintenance and repair solutions to customers.
‘Fleet Assist delivers not only a national network of garages, but critically highly competitive terms coupled with unique data warehousing and analysis capabilities delivering the highest service standards with quality management and performance monitoring.
‘We look forward to a long-term strategic partnership with Fleet Assist during which we anticipate adding further services from its portfolio as the relationship develops.’
Vincent St Claire, commercial director, Fleet Assist, added: ‘Both Sinclair Finance and Leasing and Fleet Assist have complementary growth plans.
‘Fleet Assist is looking to further enhance its marketing-leading network of independent and franchise garages and we also have exciting plans to expand our service booking call centre.’
Fleet Assist’s call centre is located at its Cambridgeshire headquarters and the company is this year seeking to increase its workforce as both its network of garages and its contract hire and leasing company client base expands.
Additionally, the company has further plans to expand services and facilities to provide additional solutions to customers.
