Vauxhall boosts support for mid-size fleets


Vauxhall’s team of dedicated fleet sales managers

Backing up its stated aim to lead the mainstream ‘true fleet’ market – that part of the market that’s unconnected to manufacturers – Vauxhall is to offer a range of additional support to smaller fleets operating 25 to 99 cars and vans.


Effective immediately, Vauxhall has tasked a new team of 11 fleet sales managers with supporting this important segment and improving its true fleet share. These field-based sales managers will work in tandem with colleagues who manage 100-plus fleets, to ensure all businesses get a uniformly high level of service.


Supporting this initiative, Vauxhall has also updated its award-winning Fleet website with a number of new features, designed to help the ‘25-99’ business segment reduce costs.


• The new Fleet Knowledge Area offers a useful range of video content and articles to help fleet decision-makers better understand the key metrics to look out for when making a choice for their fleet. This includes a look at whole-life costs, benefit-in-kind (BiK) taxation and P11D values, and guidance on how businesses can save money.


• In addition, our whole-life cost and company-car tax calculators are the best in the business, offering impartial data on all makes and models to help businesses make an informed decision. There’s also a much-improved user experience, including illustrated results, vehicle recommendations, PDF downloads and the ability to find cars by registration number.


• Recognising that many business decision-makers need information to be quickly available on their smartphone, Vauxhall has made the calculators available at your fingertips on the move, via our brand new mobile toolbox. Simply access the Vauxhall website through any internet-enabled smartphone or tablet.


“I’m delighted to launch this package of support for smaller businesses,” said James Taylor, Vauxhall’s Fleet Sales Director. We know that these businesses have slightly different requirements than larger, more structured fleets and we really want to show that we can offer them the right flexibility in terms of their overall fleet package. We truly believe that supporting these businesses directly with the manufacturer is the best way forward as we can integrate them into all the initiatives and programmes we offer. In turn, we hope to reap the rewards of this investment as part of our overall fleet strategy.”
