DEAL: Automotive Leasing nab 57 vehicles
Raven Housing Trust have selected Automotive Leasing to provide their commercial vehicles following an extensive procurement process.
Automotive Leasing, the specialist public sector division of LeasePlan, emerged as leading contenders in the tender, with the contract commencing last September.
A total of 57 diesel Mercedes commercial vehicles were delivered, including Citans, Vitos and Sprinters.
They will be used by the housing and maintenance teams that look after the Raven Housing Trust properties.
As well as being responsible for the vehicles, Automotive Leasing will also provide Shell fuel cards, accident management and a comprehensive daily rental offering.
Tim Meadows, Brand Director at Automotive Leasing, said: “We’re delighted to provide these key vehicles to Raven Housing Trust and are confident that the aftercare partnership with Mercedes Benz will ensure the Raven Housing Trust commercial fleet runs as effectively and efficiently as possible.
“The team worked extremely hard to negotiate the deal and this triumph is a testament to the power of a successful partnership.”
Peter Roach, Raven Housing Trust, added: “It was clear from the start of the tendering process that Automotive Leasing really understood the fleet needs of our organisation.
“Fuel efficiency is a key concern for us and the team were willing to go the extra mile to ensure the low emission Mercedes vehicles were delivered at a competitive price.
“We are excited to work with the Automotive Leasing team and we are confident that their leasing expertise will successfully guide our commercial fleet through the next five years.”
