New BMW small fleet scheme
01 February 2010
Author: Martin Gurdon
Fleet operators with fifty vehicles or fewer can sign up to a free-to-join business partnership scheme for BMW and Mini models.
The scheme, intended to further consolidate the German car maker's grip on the UK corporate market, will entitle participants to vehicle specification upgrades and enhanced contract hire rates. They will also have access to a dedicated business manager who can offer information on tax and motoring law changes. Other areas covered include duty of care law, benefit in kind taxation and capital allowances. The business manager will also be able to arrange vehicle servicing, and booking extended test drives.
There will also be a website offering information on fleet management issues, and details of forthcoming product offers.
Members will also be able to see new models at 'exclusive' previews ahead of public launches.
Those wishing to join the scheme can apply to do so at BMW and Mini showrooms, or online by logging on to www.bmwbusinesspartnership.co.uk.
