It was nice to see Crash Management alliance partner DriveLine featured in Company Vehicle magazine recently. DriveLine’s 100% NZ owned and operated, and focuses on the SME market. This creates a big point of difference as the multi-national lease firms specialise in the large fleet management space.
DriveLine’s MD Lance Manins says his staff are very close to their client base and understand the unique challenges faced by the SME fleet sector, including access to expert independent advice. Lance says there’s a temptation to be duped by distributors low interest rates but this option is more expensive in the long run than the bulk discounts leasing firms can negotiate.
Direct buying also has the significant disadvantage of being an asset purchase only, so doesn’t provide access to the value add specialist fleet management services lease companies can deliver. Lance highlight’s Crash Management as an example of the added value provided. DriveLine clients love the 24/7 accident management facility, it’s a one-call turn-key claims and collision management solution that delivers a sure plan guaranteed driver resource that complies with H&S requirements. Professional accident management also ensures vehicles are repaired to manufacturers’ specifications so that the value, integrity and safety of vehicles is maintained.
Don’t take chances or waste time dealing with panelbeaters direct, talk to the experts at Crash Management to learn what your vehicle fleet is missing out on.
