Rental partnerships: How fleets can improve efficiency and save time and money

Sponsored by Enterprise Flex-E-Rent

Cost management is the number one focus for fleet operators with many seeking fleet size flexibility to meet rapidly changing business circumstances.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car, established in 1957, is the largest vehicle rental company in the world and has been supplying specialist commercial vehicle rental to companies in the UK for more than 30 years.

Economic uncertainty and the vehicle requirements of individual contracts mean that many companies turn to van rental over contract hire and ownership claiming it to be the most efficient and effective fleet funding route given its flexibility.

In terms of vehicle ownership that chiefly amounts to companies not having their own money tied up in depreciating assets and in terms of leasing not being tied into contract hire agreements that may run for a number of years with penalties for early termination.

Thus the ability to rent vehicles for periods of time from a single day to many months or even years without any contractual obligations delivers the fleet flexibility that many companies desire in an ever-changing business environment.

At the seminar, Enterprise Flex-E-Rent will focus on vehicle usership and not ownership as the key to helping fleet managers retain control of their costs, reduce administration time and improve operating efficiency.

Drawing on years of experience, Enterprise Flex-E-Rent will share its thoughts on how businesses can work in partnership with their rental providers and will focus on:
• Identifying the right rental options for a business
• Explain what ‘best practice’ looks like
• Help companies to understand how rental can help meet companies’ duty of care, compliance and legislative requirements
• Highlight common pitfalls and explain how they can be avoided
• Use case studies from existing customers to illustrate the benefits of rental to organisations.
