Why use AMT?

Many SMEs operating company vehicles often do so without a long-term strategic plan that align to support the objectives of the business. As a result, they come up against many of the same issues that larger businesses with a fleet department face but without the ability to deal with them properly:

  • Rising bills
  • Delays getting new cars
  • Employee complaints
  • The diesel or not question
  • Perceived barriers to going electric/hybrid

Vehicle fleets need to be managed by experts

The most efficient and effective company vehicle fleets and car benefit schemes are managed by experts, whether those experts are an internal fleet department or an external fleet management company.

But many SME businesses rely on someone in another role to look after company vehicles and car allowances. It’s an inherited role and whether they work in HR, operations or even at a board director level they often have enough on their plate within their area of expertise.

In some businesses, up to 40% of this person’s time can be spent managing vehicles instead of focusing on their core role. As a result, many mistakes are made. Some of the most common are:

  • Budgets exceeded as the monthly lease or finance cost is budgeted for instead of the more comprehensive whole life costs.
  • Vehicles are purchased without understanding the impact of political and environmental changes on residual values.
  • Vehicles are purchased reactively, meaning expensive rental cars have to be used to bridge long factory order lead times. 
  • Employees are left out of pocket when they choose cars which have higher benefit in kind commitments than they expected.
  • Capital allowance and tax relief opportunities are missed due to the wrong acquisition methods being chosen.
  • Employee  dissatisfaction when staff turnover leads to unsuitable vehicles being passed to new starters due to contractual commitments.
  • Opportunities to replace in batches   to benefit from economies of scale are missed. 

Our service

We offer a complete and unbiased vehicle fleet supply and management solution for both cars and commercial vehicles. We supply vehicles from one day to four years using a number of different funding options, more than you would find with a traditional dealership or leasing broker and we can also dispose of any existing vehicles you have, giving you a fair market valuation and fast payment.

Before we supply any vehicles, our fleet consultants will carry out an audit of your business and fleet so that we can really get under the skin of the role that vehicles play. This means the solution we deliver maintains business continuity but shows very early on, cost savings and efficiencies which will help your bottom line.

Company car scheme Company car schemes

We create company car schemes that gives your employees choices to suit their personal circumstances and your business a framework where the vehicle choice reflects grade and job role. By allowing us to design and supply your company car scheme you will get:

  • A simplified and fair fleet with choice for all e.g family, aspirational, BIK friendly, environmental.
  • Stable pricing bands to aid financial management.
  • Inclusive maintenance contracts with minimal fleet management requirements.
  • Alignment of replacement dates to maximise discounts and ensure no gaps in supply.
  • Forward supply plans which take in to account manufacturer model replacements or updates that affect supply and legislative changes that may impact financial exposure.
  • Reduced and simplified invoice process.
  • A fleet that reflects your company brand and image.
  • Free workshops for your employees to help them understand the impact of car choice on benefit in kind and running costs so that they make an informed choice.

Company car scheme Probation cars

If you have new employees joining your company, rather than commit to a long-term company car from day one, we can provide a car which is equal to that which they would receive from your company car scheme, on a short-term basis, until their probation period ends.

This makes for a happy employee because they get a car from day one that fits their personal circumstances and grade. And you have the peace of mind that, should the probation period be unsuccessful, you won’t be left committed to a car that may not be suitable for the next employee’s personal circumstances.

Once you’re happy that your new employee is staying the course you can confidently hand it back and provide them with a longer-term company car. And because we’re AMT, we can be ready to supply that for you on the day you need it.

Company car scheme Employee workshops

Company cars aren’t free and when an employee chooses one, they are often signing up to a three- year financial commitment. There are a number of costs that need to be considered to make sure that the choice of car doesn’t leave them out of pocket in the future.

We will hold workshops with your employees and show them how much their new company car will cost them in terms of benefit in kind impact on take home pay and projected fuel costs. If you offer employees cash allowance alternatives we will help them calculate which option makes the most financial sense.

A completely unbiased solution

How can we be unbiased?

Icon of hand selecting an option

Well unlike dealership groups we aren’t limited to a fixed number of manufacturer brands and nor do we have manufacturer targets. We have access to all manufacturer brands therefore our recommendations will be those that fit your business best.

We work with a number of different funders, again, with no commitment to anyone in particular so at any given time we can find the best funding partner for the vehicles you require, giving you the lowest and most stable pricing.

Finally, because we offer vehicles from day one to 4 years we will provide vehicles only for the length of time you need them, removing the financial risk of contract terminations or contracted vehicles stood idle.

So, the only decision you need to make is whether you want to work with AMT

Are you a new business with limited credit?

If you’re a new business, less than two years old, it can be difficult to get credit through traditional funders due to a lack of published trading accounts.

At AMT, we look at new businesses on their individual merit rather than using a ‘one size fits all’ credit check. If you don’t have published trading accounts but you have a strong order book and are confident of growth, we have affordable funding options that allow you to get the vehicles you need without having to take cash out of the business for high cost finance or even outright purchase.

“Originally, my decision to work with AMT was based solely on price. But it’s the fantastic customer service and support they provide that’s impressed me most. They’re quick to react, and when issues arise they’re on hand to solve them; problems that would have sat with me are now whisked away and that lets me focus on other things. And that’s invaluable.”
