National Windscreens chooses Vauxhall

Vauxhall has won an order for a fleet of Astra 1.7 CDTi Active models from National Windscreens, the UK's largest independent vehicle glass replacement company.

The cars will be used throughout the UK by the company’s sales team.

Five of the Astra 1.7 CDTi Active (110PS) models have already been delivered by Vauxhall retailer Drive Central Bristol and are already on the road, visiting customers and prospects around the country.

National Windscreens has an established relationship with Vauxhall for its fleet requirements – both commercial vehicles and passenger cars.

Phil Lomas, director of National Windscreens, said: "We carried out a detailed comparison exercise, which confirmed that the Astra Active offers excellent whole life costs, combined with highly accessible interior space and a flexible layout to meet all of our requirements.

“In addition, the Astra’s design, performance and fuel efficiency, as well as fixed servicing costs, represent the kind of exceptional value that we look for in our fleet vehicles.

"The reliability of the Astra is also very impressive and reduces vehicle downtime, which can be costly for a business like ours. The support from Vauxhall and the local retailer has been superb, including its aftersales offering.”

The Astra 1.7 CDTi Active models come with Bluetooth and USB connectivity as standard, giving the sales team greater convenience when they are on the road.

Vauxhall’s fleet sales manager Lucy Allberry said: “We are very pleased to have supplied National Windscreens with new Astra Active models to complement the existing Vauxhalls on its fleet.

“We are confident that the Astras’ dependability, comfort and economy will continue to be enjoyed.”
