CITROËN TRIUMPHS AT THE SMALL FLEET LEASING AWARDS

For the second year in succession, CitroënContract Motoring (CCM) has won the Best Manufacturer Small Fleet Leasing Programme prize at the prestigious Small Fleet Leasing Awards. The awards – promoted by Business Car Manager and Business Van Manager – took place as part of the Small Fleet Leasing Federation celebratory first anniversary lunch, held in London yesterday.

The awards are designed to reflect the breadth and diversity of the small fleet leasing industry, honouring the best in the business at the same time. The Best Manufacturer Small Fleet Leasing Programme award was introduced in 2014 to find the gold standard of small fleet leasing programmes for SMEs. This year the judges were particularly impressed with the expertise and knowledge shown by CCM in relation to the SME fleet sector. It is an area of the market where the company has grown its customer base to more than 30,000 businesses operating between one and 50 vehicles.

Available from all 186 UK Citroën dealers, CCM’s wide range of services for smaller business customers includes contract hire, finance lease, Elect 3 Pro, lease purchase, hire purchase packages, servicing and maintenance packages, tyre service packages and insurance products.

In addition, CCM offers a number of specialist programmes tailored to meet the individual requirements of specific business sectors; including estate agents, driving schools and personal contract hire packages for entrepreneurs. CCM also offers its SME customers a leading-brand fuel card, which can save them between 4p and 10p per litre (at current fuel prices). Equal emphasis is placed by CCM on providing contract hire and other financial services for both Citroën cars and Light Commercial Vehicles.

James Birch, Head of Citroën Contract Motoring, said; “Having won the Best Manufacturer Small Fleet Leasing Programme award in 2014, we are delighted to retain the title this year. We are constantly striving for improvement and 2016 will see a number of new initiatives being adopted to further enhance the CCM customer experience and overall leasing process. We are confident that these improvements will continue to grow our business and enable us to increase the number of business that use our service.”
