Flexible rental to take pressure off SMEs

Europcar is offering SMEs a range of vehicle solutions designed to help companies move forward to a ‘new normal’ and a more efficient way of keeping business on the road.

Instead of being committed to a fixed-term lease or an outright purchase, businesses can use Europcar’s B2B Flex and Flex+ packages to take the pressure off cashflow, picking up vehicles when they need them. And they can be returned after as little as three months – with no upfront deposit or early termination fees beyond the initial three months.

Sam Sterry, SME sales director, commented: “For the majority of SMEs the last few months have been extremely challenging – whether they have been working at full pelt supporting essential services, or stood down during the lockdown. Now what is needed is as much flexibility as possible to adapt to an unknown future.

“We have, therefore focused on developing a range of ‘on-demand’ long-term flexible rental products covering both cars and vans which can help companies respond quickly to changing demands in an efficient and ‘cash friendly’ way. Our vehicles, which are generally brand new, can be delivered or picked up from our branches or van supersites nationwide. And in the wake of the pandemic we have added extra hygiene measures to keep everyone as safe as possible.”

The flexible vehicle rental packages bring a wide choice of cars and vans available, a variety of mileage options, 24-hour roadside assistance and rates designed to be competitive and fixed for 12 months. As such, the solutions allow businesses to stay on top of their finances and adapt quickly to new situations – be that another wave of COVID-19 or an unexpected job that requires additional man and vehicle power.

“SMEs are clearly the backbone of the UK economy and helping them to adapt and thrive benefits us all,” concluded Sam Sterry.
