The centres will be located in major cities and towns and will be backed up by a dedicated call centre service.
The Sandhurst fleet centre is a blueprint for other centres. It has a dedicated sales, administration and delivery team working from its own office space – separate from the retail showroom. The centre co-ordinates fleet business between Sandhurst and the neighbouring Inchcape Toyota dealerships at Basingstoke, Guildford and Farnham.
General manager of Toyota Fleet Jon Pollock says: “With the help of our Business Centre strategy, we shall reinforce our performance in the corporate sales sector. Our growth plans will be given extra, substantial impetus by the launch of the new Avensis in 2003, joining Corolla and Yaris to create an excellent product line-up.”
