Low Cost Vans has launched a new range of services to support its customers through the lifecycle of their vehicle, including maintenance packages and a fleet management provision.
The company’s new Maintenance Services aims to look after all of a vehicle’s maintenance requirements for a fixed monthly fee. The service includes the cost of MOTs, all parts and labour costs associated with routine servicing and repairs, breakdown cover and the cost of replacement tyres.
Low Cost Vans commercial customers will also be eligible for its new fleet management service, called Drive Assure. This app-based tool allows companies with large fleets of vehicles to easily track the management of their vehicles, ensuring they remain safe, roadworthy and their insurance and MOT is always up to date.
It includes a daily prompt for drivers who will be asked to inspect the basic condition of the vehicle before driving it, MOT reminders, mileage input reminders, and a dedicated helpline for accident management.
Rod Lloyd (pictured), managing director of Low Cost Vans, said: “As a company, we have grown steadily and gone from strength to strength in our core business of making commercial vehicles available to companies and individuals across the UK, keeping businesses on the road and the economy moving in the process.
“For us, these new services are a natural extension of that. Instead of only having contact with our customers at the start and the end of the lifecycle of a vehicle, we will now become their long-term partner, ensuring their vehicles are always roadworthy and taking the hassle out of managing a fleet of vehicles.”
Despite the coronavirus pandemic, Low Cost Vans has enjoyed rapid growth in the last 12 months, gaining an additional 10 staff including a new analyst, a new head of marketing and a new director of compliance. In early 2020, the company launched two new businesses: First National Cars, specialising in car leasing, and First Electric Vehicles
Its growth plans include the recruitment of a further eight new team members.
