Lex Autolease has been awarded a contract with Shoreline Housing Partnership, to provide contract hire and full maintenance on a vehicle lease framework agreement.
The agreement with Grimsby based housing association saw Lex Autolease supply 16 light commercial vehicles and one car within three weeks.
Mark Rosten, project manager at Shoreline Housing Partnership, said: “Vehicle lead times seem to be at an all-time record high, but Lex Autolease’s all-round service and speed of delivery is truly remarkable.
Gary Hamilton, business development manager at Lex Autolease, said: “The client gave us one month to organise credit approval, have master agreements signed, promote the account, order the vehicles and then deliver them. Bearing in mind, the average lead time for commercial vehicle factory order is around 10 weeks we had to pull out all the stops.”
Lex Autolease supplied the vehicles, via the Ford dealer network, under a national contract hire framework agreement facilitated by Procurement for Housing.
