A double solus deal success for Toyota

TOYOTA has clinched a solus 300-car deal with science and engineering business AEA Technology. The Toyotas replace an existing user-chooser list, with the vehicles now being supplied by Hartwell Motor Contracts on a three-year term with full maintenance. Terry Parker, AEA Technology's procurement manager, said: 'We decided to reduce the cost of our fleet by negotiating a deal with one manufacturer.'

In another all-Toyota deal, building solutions company Direction International has scrapped half its user chooser fleet. Toyota is initially supplying the Guildford-based company with 14 Avensis 1.8GS estates and three Yaris on a three-year contract purchase agreement but the manufacturer has hopes of a solus contract to supply the entire 35-strong fleet.
