We tend to associate company cars and company trucks with major corporations that can afford to fritter away money on aspects of business progression that aren’t necessarily entirely necessary. But this is relatively flawed thinking. There are various ways that even the smallest of businesses can benefit from having their own set of wheels for professional purposes. Let’s take a moment to look at why it really is time for you to get your business on the roads!
The Benefits of a Company Car
Company cars can allow you or employees to get to and from the workplace in a timely manner. Sure, public transport is almost always an option when it comes to getting people from A to B, it does tend to be unreliable. There are delays and cancellations all over the place! Sure, you might face some traffic in a car during the commute at rush hour, but if you account for this, you have much better chances of making it into the workplace on time. Company cars also allow you and your staff to get around to meetings, conferences, and other public events that can see you establish yourself and your brand as reputable names within your chosen field.
The Benefits of a Company Truck
Company trucks are a good idea when you start receiving increased orders and generating more sales. Chances are that someone will want to stock your products and the easiest and cheapest means of getting products from one end of the country to another is by truck. Investing in a truck generally proves a lot cheaper than using a courier or hiring someone else’s truck over time.
Finding Reliable Drivers
If you have a company vehicle or company truck, you need to make sure that anyone you hire who is going to get behind the wheel on a regular basis is a reliable driver. Any drivers should have licenses (check these rather than taking anyone’s word for owning one) and no previous driving convictions. If something does go wrong and someone ends up in an accident while driving any of your company vehicles, seek advice from Greene Broillet & Wheeler. They will be able to provide you with further direction.
Choose the Right Vehicle
Generally speaking, it’s best to get a brand-new vehicle for your company. It’s guaranteed to be in perfect working order and if anything does go wrong with the vehicle during your warranty period, it will be put to rights at no extra cost to you. If you do decide to opt for a second-hand vehicle for the sake of affordability, make sure to fully check it out, request to see its MOT, and test drive it before putting any money down on it. Remember that photographs and descriptions can be very flattering and misleading. See the vehicle before setting your heart on it.
While you might not have considered a company vehicle before, it can be a great addition to your work once your company starts expanding and experiencing success. So, start browsing the market now!
