Bank backs brokers as 'invisible' fleet managers

COMPANIES running relatively few vehicles could employ an 'invisible' fleet manager by using dealers and brokers for key services, according to a leading high street bank. Bank of Scotland Vehicle Management is backing vehicle brokers as a key source of advice, competitive prices, flexibility and commitment to finding the best solution mirroring the benefits of an in-house fleet manager for companies without the resources to employ one.

Steve McKinstray, director of Bank of Scotland's vehicle management dealer-broker service, said: 'The world of business is demanding and fast-moving, and many companies simply don't have the time to spend trawling the best deals or suppliers for their fleet needs. That is where dealers and brokers come in.

'They have an in-depth knowledge of the industry, financial products and any legislation which can affect businesses, and can guide customers through the whole process and ensure they get the best deal and the right vehicle.

'As a supplier of vehicle management solutions, we understand the financial and environmental pressures facing businesses. We work with the dealer and broker industry to provide customers with services.'
