The main word we here from businesses in 2023 is flexibility and this word is key for those companies that are running fleets of cars and commercial vehicles in the UK. Staff turnover for many business-owners is at an all-time high, higher salaries and staff incentives being the main reason why employees are jumping ship. By utilising car and van subscriptions within your fleet, you can add the flexibility of an expansive car-fleet without the high initial costs and long-term commitments.
What can Car Subscriptions add to a business?
Here are a few good reasons why car subscriptions work for a business:
Lower Upfront Costs
With vehicle purchasing or traditional car leasing, the amount you have to put down as an initial payment or deposit can be quite high. When you compare car subscriptions to these more traditional financing routes, the upfront costs are much lower.
Fixed Cost Motoring
When you subscribe to a car or van, the majority of the vehicle providers include servicing, maintenance, breakdown assistance and road tax as standard. This provides you with one payment covering all of the motoring essentials. All you need to worry about is charging or fueling, as well as fully-comprehensive insurance.
Easy Fleet Expansion
By utilising car and van subscriptions for your fleet, you can easily expand the number of available vehicles extremely quickly with most providers having physical stock vehicles that can be delivered straightaway. Not only that but you can also send them back when you no longer need them.
Latest Modern Vehicles
Whilst some of the subscription providers do have older cars on fleet, there are also companies who offer brand new or nearly new cars. This gives you access to some of the latest vehicles in the marketplace and allows your company image to portray professionalism and where required, green credentials, see the next paragraph for details.
Greener Fleet Options
Electric and Plug-in Hybrid cars can easily be considered when you opt for a vehicle subscription, many of the providers run some of the latest greener cars from brands such as Tesla, BYD, Volvo and BMW.
Finally… The most important aspect to a vehicle subscription for a business. Flexibility! With many subscriptions available from just 1-month, a car subscription allows you to run vehicles for as long as you need them for. Should a member of staff leave, off-hire it and stoip paying for it. Taken on a short-term project, subscribe to additional vehicles.
