With effect from Friday 17 May, Free2Move Lease becomes the in-house provider of Business Contract Hire for Vauxhall Motors and its Retailer network, following the acquisition of Vauxhall and Opel by Groupe PSA. The integration of Vauxhall marks a further development for Free2Move Lease, since its launch in 2017, when it became the provider of contract hire for the Peugeot, Citroën and DS Automobiles networks.
Competitive offers on key Vauxhall cars and LCVs will be included on the Free2Move Lease website www.free2move-lease.co.uk/ and all standard Free2Move Lease customer benefits will apply.
This includes the Free2Move Lease vehicle management service, Free2Move Lease Command Level 1, designed to help fleet operators to focus on business matters, by taking on aspects of fleet administration on their behalf.
Free2Move Lease Command Level 1 is designed to provide service and MoT reminders and flag up potential excess mileage. Customers will receive email notifications regarding the service and maintenance needed by their vehicles, based on mileage information from the vehicles. Customers can make service bookings with a single call or email to the Free2Move Lease Command Care Line, who will make the service booking with their chosen dealership and monitor the work to completion. Free2Move Lease can also assist with other unscheduled service maintenance and repair issues and warn of potential excess mileage to help avoid End of Term charges. This service is included with all new contracts of 18 months duration or longer on Vauxhall’s car and LCV ranges.
Vauxhall’s Grandland X 1.2T Sport Nav 5dr, five-seat SUV is available from Free2Move Lease for a competitive monthly rental of £210 ex-VAT following an initial payment of £1,260 ex-VAT. Similarly, Vauxhall’s New Combo Cargo 2000 1.5 Turbo 75ps H1 van, launched at the end of 2018 and voted International Van of the Year 2019, is available for a monthly rental of £205 ex-VAT following an initial payment of £1,230 ex-VAT.
Adding Vauxhall to the Free2Move Lease portfolio marks the next step in Groupe PSA’s “Push to Pass” plan to become a preferred mobility services provider worldwide. The move comes two weeks after the international launch of the New Vauxhall Vivaro van. Free2Move Lease now includes easy, convenient and affordable offers on the newest Vauxhall LCV.
“The integration of the Vauxhall contract hire business into Free2Move Lease adds yet more choice for our customers and enables us to include benefits such as Free2Move Lease Command for our new Vauxhall customers”, says Free2Move Lease General Manager Mark Pickles, “Vauxhall has been a long-standing player in the UK business vehicle sector and is a great addition to the Free2Move Lease portfolio.”
