Online vehicle acquisition service promises up to 18% savings

Aug 16, 2016
FCS Vehicle Solutions, a new service launched by Fuel Card Services, is claiming to offer up to 18% savings on car and van acquisitions throughout the UK.

The company says it will ensure fleet managers are not limited to local dealers or restricted finance choices when acquiring a new vehicle.  

Steve Clarke, Fuel Card Services Group Marketing Manager said, “We can offer outstanding deals on every make and model from 32 vehicle manufacturers, sourced through more than 4,000 dealers nationwide. It means that we can ensure the best possible deal, even if only a single vehicle is required. Where a fleet manager looking for a Ford Focus might seek quotes from their nearest dozen or so Ford dealers, we are in contact with all 500+ dealers throughout the country.”  

Fleet managers are not restricted to standard vehicles and have exactly the same freedom to specify options and colours using the FCS Vehicle Solutions website as they would if dealing directly. Unlike wholly automated online comparison sites, the search and price negotiation process is then handled by a real human being to ensure the best possible result.  

“A hard-negotiating fleet manager might shop around regionally and achieve average savings of up to 8% on published vehicle prices,” said Steve Clarke. “That is reasonable, but we would expect routinely to deliver a discount of at least 15% to 18% on list pricing.”
