Vauxhall in-house business contract hire comes under Free2Move Lease banner

By / 3 months ago / News / No Comments

Following on from its acquisition by Groupe PSA, Vauxhall has appointed Free2Move Lease as its in-house provider of business contract hire for its retailer network in the UK.

Free2Move Lease will market business contract hire offers on Vauxhall cars and vans including the Grandland X

The change will see PSA’s established Free2Move Lease brand market business contract hire from now as well as fleet management tools.

However, Vauxhall Finance Plc will continue to provide the finance for business contract hire in addition to all other existing Vauxhall Finance products and services available through the Vauxhall network.

The move brings fleets access to tools including the Free2Move Lease vehicle management service, Free2Move Lease Command, which is designed to help fleet operators focus on business matters, by taking on aspects of fleet administration on their behalf.

Free2Move Lease Command Level 1 is designed to provide service and MoT reminders and flag up potential excess mileage. Customers will receive email notifications regarding the service and maintenance needed by their vehicles, based on mileage information from the vehicles.

Customers can make service bookings with a single call or email to the Free2Move Lease Command Care Line, who will make the service booking with their chosen dealership and monitor the work to completion.

Free2Move Lease can also assist with other unscheduled service maintenance and repair issues and warn of potential excess mileage to help avoid end of term charges. The service is included with all new contracts of 18 months or longer on Vauxhall’s car and light commercial vehicle ranges.

“We are pleased to appoint Free2Move Lease as Vauxhall’s in-house provider of business contract hire,” said James Taylor, Vauxhall’s general sales director. “Free2Move Lease has been a key pillar in Groupe PSA’s business sales achievement and now Vauxhall has the opportunity to maximise car and LCV sales in this area, too.”
