MWith four refrigerated trucks on the road, Jimmy’s customers expect on-time delivery of the highest quality product to their restaurants, clubs, wholesale and retail outlets.
Jimmy’s personal and business transport is a four-wheel drive, which works as a multi-use vehicle. As the Director of Reef and Beef, Jimmy needs to use his vehicle for delivery and to visit potential clients and suppliers. On the weekends, he likes to head out on fishing expeditions and clear his head after the busy working week.
At Mini Fleet, we know that all our clients have a different story. In fact, hearing these stories is one of the highlights of running a fleet service operation. The more we understand our customers and their needs – the more we improve our business.
When Mini Fleet first met with Jimmy, they re-assessed the Reef and Beef fleet; looking for efficiency and cost-saving opportunities. Following this review, Mini Fleet planned a purchase program and advised Jimmy on the optimum time to sell the vehicles in his fleet to meet the objectives of the new investment strategy.
Here’s what Jimmy says about the Mini Fleet service:
“Mini Fleet save me time and money so I can devote more energy to what I do best. They’ve opened my eyes to how I can save substantial money by using a professional fleet management service. They saved me several thousand dollars on my purchase of a new and improved 4x4 and organised competitive service contracts on my trucks. Nothing seems to be too much trouble for these guys – they even achieved top sale prices on the disposal of the sales reps’ wagons.”
However, Churchill Education was in its early days, and as a new business owner, Randall was extremely busy. He didn’t have time to run around finding dealers who had the car he wanted at the right price. Thankfully, he called Mini Fleet.
Mini Fleet went the extra mile to ensure that Randall got the vehicle of his choice. We spoke to several dealerships across South-East Queensland and got an incredible deal, saving thousands of dollars off the retail price. After this success, Tricia and Randall decided to purchase a vehicle to cater for their large family. This time, Mini Fleet helped them buy a Luxury People Mover with a national fleet discount.
The partnership continues to evolve. Churchill now uses Mini Fleet not only to buy their vehicles but also to arrange tailor-made finance packages and organise the disposal of their existing vehicles.
Here’s what Randall says about the Mini Fleet service:
“With such significant savings on our own vehicles, we now use Mini Fleet to secure all our business development managers' company vehicles. With the help of the Mini Fleet team, we can now also offer our office staff the incentive of fleet savings on their private vehicles.”
