Fleet Elite Vehicle Management

Buying a new car has never been so easy. Fleet Elite is a car concierge service on the Berks/Bucks border that will find your dream car and negotiate the best price. Oh happy days.

Buying a new car should be exciting – the intoxicating smell of the fresh-out-of-the-box interior, new tech, the perfect paint shade and a ride that’s smoother than babies bum. But the thrill soon wears off. Making a decision that is right for you and your lifestyle comes with multiple obstacles.

For me, I know very little – oh, let’s be honest, NOTHING – about cars. After a quick Google, I’ll narrow it down to a few based on pretty pictures and a few reviews. Then you want to see your shortlist IRL, but the showrooms are miles apart (or closed due to lockdown), test drives are a pain in the bum to organise and the customer service is often poor – especially of you’re a woman.  A sweeping statement in this day and age, but one that is sadly true.

It’s not rocket science, car showrooms want to sell you a vehicle with their badge on the front. Even if it’s not exactly ticking all your boxes. So when I discovered a concierge service that is all about finding the RIGHT vehicle, at the best price and finance deal, I sat up like a meerkat.

Fleet Elite Vehicle Management, run by directors Torquil Rowley, Helen Moser and Michael Brown, put your needs first. With more than 70 years’ experience in the motor industry between them (they’re not that old), they have relationships with all the dealerships, know the latest models available right now and what is coming in the future. Handy, now that electric and hybrid cars are booming and the clock is ticking on new diesel and petrol vehicles.

That’s not all, they also will arrange your shortlisted cars to be delivered to your home or office for a test drive, and once you’ve chosen the one, they’ll negotiate the best price. If you’re taking out a finance deal or lease they’ll also check over all the paperwork (including the very very small print) to ensure you’re not stung at the end of the agreement.

I can’t think of a single reason not to use them. You get the car of your dreams, they do all the bits of the search that none of us enjoy– saving time and money. It’s a win win.

So if you’re looking for your next car, give them a call – it’s the future.
