Clancy Plant strikes fleet deal with Škoda

Skoda Clancy Plan fleet deal.

Clancy Plant has renewed its long-standing vehicle agreement with Škoda UK, with 11 vehicles already delivered and a further mix of 20 Octavia, Rapid Spaceback and Superb models to be added to the fleet this year.

Škoda currently provides nearly a fifth of Clancy Plant’s 400-strong fleet, which is used to support the company’s six nationwide offices and 2,500 employees across The Clancy Group.

Founded in 1962, Clancy Plant is a leading force in the construction industry that focuses on the service provision of plant, transport and traffic management.

Škoda says it won the fleet deal based on low P11d values attributed to the model range and competitive wholelife costs.

The Rapid Spaceback diesel starts at £16,900 with a BIK of 22% and the Octavia hatch is available from £20,395 with a BIK rate of 23%. The Superb is available from £22,725 with a BIK rate of 23%.

David Janes, head of sales and corporate accounts at Clancy Plant, said: “With such a large workforce, we need a fleet that we can rely on and the comfort of knowing that support is on hand when needed – and that is what Škoda has consistently delivered for us.

“Feedback from our drivers about what they are driving and any problems that arise is extremely important, and one of the main reasons that we keep coming back to Škoda is the positive response to the cars. They perform extremely well and our driver’s running costs are kept low.”

He continued: “We are currently test-driving the new Kodiaq, and it certainly measures up in terms of performance and practicality. I can see it being an attractive option for our senior team in the future.

Henry Williams, head of fleet at Škoda UK, said: “It has been a pleasure working with Clancy Plant over the years, and I am glad that our cars continue to be a strong draw for the company.

“The vastness and variety of the fleet that they run presents an exciting challenge for us to provide the best mix of models that combine a desirable drive and affordable option for drivers. I look forward to many more years working together.”
