Wolverhampton Wanderers signs up Activa Contracts
Wolverhampton Wanderers has awarded a 26-vehicle fully outsourced fleet contract to Activa Contracts.
The Premier League football club runs a mix of company cars, pool vehicles and commercial vehicles, used by a wide cross-section of club employees, including backroom staff and academy players.
Its new fleet deal with Activa Contracts – which has already led to orders for 23 vehicles – follows an initial August 2018 mailshot that was followed up by Activa Contracts’ business development team to outline Activa Contracts’ product portfolio and how the company could potentially provide vehicle solutions to the club and staff.
Activa Contracts’ area manager Steve Callaghan explained: “The initial carrot was that the club was interested in our Affinity Cars Personal Contract Hire scheme, but it also wanted to know more about our vehicle leasing solutions. Wolves wanted to make savings on its vehicle provision and saw the opportunity to capitalise on our knowledge and provide more suitable vehicles than those currently operated.”
As an added bonus, Activa Contracts has become a commercial supplier to the club, with benefits including the opportunity for employees to obtain match day tickets.
