Renting Vehicles for your Company

Posted on May 9, 2017 at 1:21 pm

Many businesses need to make use of vehicles for employees and staff members on a fairly regular basis. If this isn’t every week or every few days though, it may well not be worth it to buy company vehicles and allocate them to people within the company. Renting can be just as beneficial for companies that need vehicles on a semi-regular basis.

Form good relationships with the company you rent your vehicles from, as this will help you to get good prices and receive good service. You should always shop around when you want to rent vehicles as this will assure you that you are getting the most you can for your money. If you don’t have the time or resources to rent vehicles out yourself, you can enlist the help of a fleet management company. They also help with rental services, not just fleets, and they have good buying power so can get you very good deals on rental vehicles.

Is Running a Car Really Worth it?

Posted on March 7, 2017 at 2:27 pm

Running a car can be an enormous expense. It will not only cost a great deal of money to buy the car in the first place, it will also cost a lot to run it, maintain it and get adequate vehicle insurance. If you are thinking of getting a car, you need to seriously weigh up your options to make sure you can afford it.

First, see how much insurance would be. You will be able to use price comparison sites to work out the price of different insurance options on different vehicles. This will be a good starting point for you. You will then need to factor in things like fuel, MOTs, services and monthly payments if you have bought the car on finance.

You also need to take into account the cost of having a company car. It will not cost you any money to run the car but do remember that it is a taxable benefit so you will be losing some of your pay each month.

Deciding on Transport Options for your Business

Posted on February 26, 2017 at 11:41 am

Businesses will often have the need to transport people and goods, so if this applies to you, it’s important to choose the right options. This will help to make your transportation as simple as possible and it will help to save you time and money in the long run.

It might be the case that you need to transport large goods on a regular basis. If this applies to you, consider building up a relationship with a regular logistics company who can provide these services to you over a longer period of time. This will help you to get good prices and good service.

You may also want to consider the option of running a fleet of vehicles yourself. This could consist of vans, cars, motorbikes or other vehicles depending on your specific requirements. You could have a pool of company vehicles for people to use as and when they need them or you could assign a vehicle to the member of staff who will need to use it.
