Business Centres cater for contract hire demand

Posted on 06 Oct 2009

According to staff at Jennings’ South Tyneside and Teesside Business Centres, the number of business customers opting for contract hire is on the increase.

During a time of economic uncertainty, it appears that more businesses across the region are opting for contract hire for both car and commercial vehicles, in order to improve company cash flow in comparison to making an outright purchase.

Ray Cardwell, business centre manager, based at the JenningsFord and Mazda dealership on Riverside Road in Sunderland, said;

“Contract hire offers peace of mind, simplicity and no hidden costs. It allows the customer to choose a level of cover that suits individual needs and more importantly budget.”

JenningsFord’s South Tyneside and Teesside Business Centres, which were set up more than 13 years ago, are responsible for providing a total package to meet the needs and demands of the business community.

The launch of JenningsMazda in Middlesbrough in 2000 and Sunderland in 2003 enabled the Business Centre to cater for a wider target audience. In addition to Ford’s car and commercial product range being available, customers can also take advantage of the exciting Mazda model line-up for their business needs.

In addition to being responsible for generating business and forging good working relationships locally, the Business Centres are also able to cater for multi-national companies purchasing high volume fleet vehicles.

Ray went on to say; “We cater for everything, from one-man operations to multi-national blue chip companies.”

A 24-hour test drive facility is also available to businesses, which gives the customer additional time with the vehicle prior to making that final purchasing decision.

Ray added; “The 24-hour test drive facility is extremely popular and is available to both existing and prospective customers wanting to spend more time with a specific vehicle. It’s been an excellent incentive which has contributed towards increasing business and achieving sales objectives.”
