Hyundai has begun the roll-out of 27 new Fleet Business Centres at selected dealers across the brand’s UK network.
The fleet specialists will offer a number of additional services to business customers and aim to deliver competitive purchase deals and contract hire rates for SMEs with fleets of up to 10 vehicles.
Hyundai almost has a 50/50 split with 47% of the brand’s registrations classified as fleet. The Korean brand believes SMEs represent a substantial business opportunity for dealers with over 729,000 business running between one and five cars.
The dealers in the fleet network will have to train the Hyundai Business Professional team members on all aspects of fleet operations as part of the Fleet Business Centres standards.
Each of the 27 dealerships will offer free wifi and dedicated working areas for fleet customers. Business customers will also get free loan vehicles or they can opt for a collect-and-deliver service, or free shuttle.
Martin Wilson, fleet director, Hyundai UK, said: “Fleet Business Centres will help Hyundai build its presence in the fleet field by delivering uncompromised customer service and true value.
“It shows Hyundai’s commitment to offering all fleet customers - regardless of fleet size - the best possible service that’s convenient and local to them along with the specialist knowledge of matching the right fleet vehicle with the specific business requirement. Alongside recent appointments within our fleet team, the first 27 Hyundai Fleet Business Centres will be a vital asset in Hyundai’s ever-increasing fleet offering.”
Hyundai has set up a white label partnership with fleet provider ALD to support the Fleet Business Centres.
