Headlam Group adds Volvo V60 to fleet choice list

Volvo V60 2018

Headlam Group has added the Volvo V60 Momentum to its choice list, giving all company car drivers, including essential users, access to a premium vehicle.

The floorcovering distributor’s first batch order that included the V60 for essential users was placed in late 2018, and it made up more than half of the company’s renewals at that time.

Amy Furber, corporate buyer at Headlam Group, said: “Volvo’s cars have been firm favourites on our fleet for higher grade employees for several years, but we wanted to offer the same reward to our essential users, most of whom are sales representatives doing considerable mileage around the UK.

“The V60 was the key to us achieving this goal. Working closely with our local Volvo retailer, Brindley Volvo in Wolverhampton, as well as the Volvo national business sales manager, we have created a solution that comfortably meets the benefit in kind (BIK) and tax requirements of our entry-level drivers and, just as significantly, supports them in doing their job – transporting heavy floorcovering samples to customers and sales prospects.” 

Sarah Symcox, national business sales manager, Volvo Car UK, added: “Over the next two years there will be an additional 260 essential user renewals, and following the overwhelmingly positive feedback so far, we hope to see the V60 represent a significant share of those orders.”
