Free2Move Lease has become the in-house provider of business contract hire for Vauxhall and its retailer network, following the acquisition of Vauxhall and Opel by Groupe PSA.
Vauxhall cars and LCVs will be included on the Free2Move Lease website and all standard Free2Move Lease customer benefits will apply. This includes the Free2Move Lease vehicle management service, Free2Move Lease Command Level 1, designed to help fleet operators to focus on business matters, by taking on aspects of fleet administration on their behalf.
Free2Move Lease Command Level 1 is designed to provide service and MoT reminders and flag up potential excess mileage. Customers receive email notifications regarding the service and maintenance needed by their vehicles, based on mileage information from the vehicles.
Free2Move Lease can also assist with other unscheduled service maintenance and repair issues and warn of potential excess mileage to help avoid end of contract charges. This service is included with all new contracts of 18 months duration or longer on Vauxhall’s car and LCV ranges.
Free2Move Lease general manager Mark Pickles said: “The integration of the Vauxhall contract hire business into Free2Move Lease adds yet more choice for our customers and enables us to include benefits such as Free2Move Lease Command for our new Vauxhall customers.
Adding Vauxhall to the Free2Move Lease portfolio marks the next step in Groupe PSA’s ‘Push to Pass’ plan to become a preferred mobility services provider worldwide.
The move comes two weeks after the international launch of the New Vauxhall Vivaro van.
Pickles concluded: “Vauxhall has been a long-standing player in the UK business vehicle sector and is a great addition to the Free2Move Lease portfolio.”
