SG Fleet chooses Michelin tyres for salary sacrifice drivers

SG Fleet has chosen Michelin for sole supply of tyres to its salary sacrifice drivers.

The Novalease scheme, first made popular in Australia, is a unique leasing agreement which means if an employee moves on to a new job, they can take their company car with them. 

The solution fits well with sgfleet’s policy to solely fit Michelin tyres to its fleet, as Operations Director Chris Dorricott says those who participate take a real pride in their vehicles.

He explains: “You hear horror stories about how individuals treat company cars, but actually a lot of people take real pride in their vehicle even if they don’t own it. Novalease is a perfect fit for those people and for those businesses that want to reward their employees with the benefit of a company car, but are keen to avoid any liability should a person move on.

“We could save money by fitting different tyres to our vehicles, but in my mind Michelin tyres are the best value. They are the safest and last the longest, and our scheme is aimed at people who will appreciate those factors.”

Carlisle-based sgfleet now manages more than 2,200 cars and vans in the UK. It is part of the SG Fleet Group, which operates in Australia and New Zealand, managing around 84,000 vehicles in total.
