Fuel Card Services has launched a vehicle acquisition service, designed to make sure that fleet managers are not limited to local dealers when purchasing new vehicles.
Known as FCS Vehicle Solutions, managers input the vehicle(s) required - including the colour, optional extras - with the search and negotiation process carried out by one person.
"We can get deals from 32 vehicle manufacturers, sourced through more than 4000 dealers nationwide," said Steve Clarke, Fuel Card Services group managing director. "It means that we can ensure the best possible deal, even if only a single vehicle is required. Where a fleet manager looking for a Focus might seek quotes from their nearest dozen or so Ford dealers, we are in contact with all 500+ dealers throughout the country."
The tool also offers a choice in procurement and financing, including business and personal leasing, lease purchase, contract hire and outright purchase.
"Having chosen a supplier, the fleet manager then typically faces a limited choice of finance options. We not only offer the very best in vehicle pricing, we can also find unbeatable financing deals," Clarke claimed.
