TOYOTA FLEET MANAGEMENT RENEWS FOCUS ON SMALL BUSINESS CUSTOMERS
Toyota Fleet Management (TFM) has renewed its focus on fleet finance options specifically tailored to small and medium businesses by producing a new publication that outlines the features and benefits of its finance products.
The Toyota Fleet Management Small Fleet Guide covers TFM's CompleteLease and Maintained Chattel Mortgage products that are specially designed for businesses running a small vehicle fleet.
TFM general manager Ed Stanistreet said the new guide had been created as part of TFM's continued efforts to simplify and streamline the fleet management process.
"At Toyota Fleet Management we understand running a fleet can be time-consuming, especially for small to medium-sized business owners who have a lot of other tasks to manage as well," Mr Stanistreet said.
"The Small Fleet Guide is designed to help busy fleet managers decide which product is best suited to their needs."
The CompleteLease is a comprehensive vehicle leasing option that takes care of all running costs. There is no residual risk as the vehicle can be returned at the end of the lease term and replaced with another. No deposit is required and the customer chooses their own lease term, all at a fixed monthly price.
"Because the lease is fully maintained all running costs are included, and unlike a traditional vehicle lease there is no residual value obligation at its conclusion," Mr Stanistreet said.
The Maintained Chattel Mortgage is a new product unique to the market that has been created specifically for small business. It is a smart vehicle loan that provides the customer with potential tax benefits, the flexibility of being able to extend the loan term or simply pay off the balance and purchase the vehicle.
"As with CompleteLease, all running costs are included and you can choose your own term while enjoying the convenience of a fixed monthly payment," Mr Stanistreet said.
CompleteLease and the Maintained Chattel Mortgage both include fixed costs for vehicle maintenance (air conditioning repairs, oil changes, clutch and brake fluid replacement, lubricants and anti-freeze), servicing, tyre replacement and vehicle registration fees, making it easier to budget and control costs.
Both options also include the option of adding roadside assistance, a TFM Fuel Card that provides a discount off the pump price (plus the convenience of fuel bills being included in the monthly invoice), and TFM's cost-effective and convenient comprehensive motor vehicle insurance.
"One of the key advantages of these two products is that Toyota Fleet Management provides a range of standard fleet reports that help business owners manage their fleet more efficiently," Mr Stanistreet said. "And our customers don't need to worry about keeping track of registrations and insurance as we take care of it all."
The fleet reports include monthly tax invoices and statements of all amounts outstanding, account activity (including new, varied and finalised contracts), vehicle expenses, vehicles that are due for servicing and fuel transactions (if a TFM Fuel Card is included).
Customers can also generate their own reports at any time via the user-friendly myFleet online portal.
"The new Toyota Fleet Management Small Fleet Guide has been designed specifically to help our dealer partners promote the benefits of these two solutions for our customers," Mr Stanistreet said.
"It's another way in which Toyota Fleet Management is delivering on its aim of taking the complexity and hassle out of fleet management and providing a complete solution for our customers."
