Reduce exposure to grey fleet

Date: 25 September 2014   |   Author: Tristan Young



This resistance is something recognised by Arval fleet consultant Paul Marchment. He believes it takes time to make the transition and that it is the right thing to gradually implement a change to the policy.
"For example, employees taking a cash allowance and using their own vehicle on business will have allocated this income to things like their mortgage or a holiday. As a result, it is difficult, and potentially unfair, to take this away overnight," he says.

"However, there should be a process in place, which makes the transition as easy as possible. Cash drivers who need to change their vehicle should be able to opt in to a company car scheme easily. For shorter journeys, rental vehicles or pool vehicles can be used straight away, and in these cases an organisation can stop their employees using their own vehicles
on company business."
