SME’s and tailored solutions

After reading the blog post by Steve Whitmarsh ‘SME: Tapping into the goldmine’ it made us think about how we evaluate and service the needs of SME’s.

In the article Steve states a valid point:

“The needs of an SME are not dissimilar to the needs of a large organisation, and the sales process to convert these fleets to contract hire requires the same level of investment, thought and consultation. Therefore, beware of the contract hire company that has a dedicated department for SMEs (this generally guarantees SMEs get a lower level of investment, thought and consultation).”

This is why we pride ourselves on offering a personal solution to fleets of all sizes with access to best practice solutions and account management typically associated with large corporate fleets.

Steve also goes on to ask why aren’t sales and lease back being offered? Many fleets aren’t aware of the effects of leasing vehicles and the effects on balance sheets.

However, with Agility Fleet’s whole life cost analysis service we can review all the current company vehicles as an outright purchase and make recommendations on how to do it more cost effectively. Our overall aim is to provide customers with an understanding of all the costs associated with running a fleet to help make purchasing decisions simple, as well as making budgeting easier.

We are proud to be able to give our customers a solution tailored to their business and provide a clear picture which allows them to make an informed decision about which vehicles are right for their business and their needs.Blog divider

Bromsgrove business races ahead to raise £8k for local charity

Bromsgrove based charity ‘Rees Foundation’ was presented with a cheque for £8K, thanks to the fundraising efforts of a group of petrol heads from Stoke Prior contract hire and fleet management specialists, Agility Fleet.  

Sarah Milan, director of Rees Foundation, accepted the cheque from Keith Townsend, managing director of Agility Fleet, who with four of his colleagues successfully competed in the 24 hours European round of the prestigious Teesside Karting Championship in the heart of the world famous Le Mans, raising more than £8K in the process. 

The Rees Foundation is a charity that supports young people and adults who’ve had foster care or residential experience, ensuring they can access the support they need to help them achieve their potential. 

Sarah Milan, director of the Rees Foundation, said: “This event was a real test of endurance, and covered around 1,000 miles at race speed – the equivalent of driving from Land’s End to John O’ Groats and back to Glasgow again all in a go kart!  It was a fantastic effort by the Agility Fleet guys and I’d like to thank all the businesses that supported them via sponsorship and donations, helping to raise funds to support young people after they leave care system.”

In addition to their fundraising activity, Agility Fleet are also working in partnership with the Rees Foundation to help with the expense of providing driving lessons for care leavers.  With the current cost of learning to drive in the UK averaging £1,300 many of the country’s most disadvantaged young people find that they are priced out of ever learning to drive.

Managing director of Agility Fleet, Keith Townsend, said: “As my greatest passions include four wheels and speed, I jumped at the opportunity to combine these with supporting a great local charity. The Rees Foundation do some wonderful work but don’t seem to get as much publicity as some of the other well-known charities. Our hope is that after competing in this popular championship we have played a small part in changing that.

“I’d especially like to thank Mike Smith, managing director of Fleet Assist – Agility Fleet’s partners for servicing, maintenance and repairs – who also entered a team into the race, as well as thanking our two key sponsors, Itec and Ormorod Rutter, for their generous donations.”
