Toyota fleet deal goes by the book

A POSITIVE experience at his former employer prompted financial controller Philip Jones to recommend Toyota as a fleet supplier at his new employer.

Book distributor S Webb and Son (Distributors) has ordered 20 Toyotas, including Corolla and Avensis models, for its sales and operations managers.

Jones, who dealt with Toyota in his previous position, said: 'We decided to move to Toyota on the basis of the choice of vehicle available, equipment levels, fuel economy and styling.'

Due to a high-mileage salesforce, the vehicles are supplied on contract hire by Automotive Leasing on a three-year/105,000-mile replacement cycle. In another deal, Toyota has supplied nine diesel Corollas to noise control specialist Hodgson & Hodgson Group for use by its acoustic consultants.
