The effective reallocation of company vehicles when employees leave the business can reduce funding and rental costs, remove the threat of early termination charges and improve vehicle utilisation.
CLM are experts in reallocating vehicles quickly and efficiently for our customers when cars become available due to staff leaving, redundancy, or company reorganisation.
To that end, the company has operated a reallocation and storage centre at Wharley End, near Cranfield, Bedfordshire, for several years for its fleet customers to ensure that surplus vehicles do not suffer early termination or end of contract costs needlessly.
And it has just embarked on an upgrading process to the onsite infrastructure, which will include the addition of a new customer area so that site visitors can be entertained or wait whilst their vehicles are being assessed or repaired.
The Wharley End reallocation centre has the capacity to store up to 300 vehicles at any one time and has onsite capabilities for vehicle inspections, PDI and smart repair.
Full inspection facilities include the use of digital cameras so that images from vehicles that require rectification work can be sent via e-mail to clients for authorisation, while safety checks are also carried out on all vehicles, with particular attention paid to the condition of tyres and glass.
There are eight full-time staff onsite to ensure that the full spectrum of work can be managed, from basic checks at one end of the scale up to refurbishing vehicles to near-showroom condition at the other.
