Activa wins leasing company of the year at Fleet News Awards 2017

2017 Fleet News Awards name Activa Leasing Company of the Year - under 20000 vehicles .

Who are we?

Activa Contracts is a division of Arnold Clark Finance and a member of the Arnold Clark Group, Europe’s largest independently owned car retailer. Using our unique position in the industry, we combine expert consultancy and personal service with unparalleled access to a wide range of vehicles. Established in 2000, we continue to grow, with our focus always on delivering outstanding service.

What do we do?

We operate in a mature market, where no provider has a genuine USP. Most products offered in the leasing industry are broadly similar. We offer the best of both worlds; the stability and strength of being part of Europe’s largest private motor Group, together with the commitment to service of a smaller family business.

Activa Contracts has more than 7,000 company cars and vans, which we lease to a wide variety of organisations, ranging from blue-chip businesses to SMEs and charities. We also provide a comprehensive range of in-life vehicle management services to keep our clients’ vehicles on the road.

We continue to develop innovative initiatives to support customers. Recently launched solutions include:

• A web-based company car or cash allowance calculator, designed to give employers and drivers an in-depth analysis of critical costs at the click of a button, making decisions simple.

• A flexible mini-lease programme called Rental Plus that bridges the gap between daily rental and contract hire. This service enables fleets to hire cars and vans for 84 days or longer and return them at any time, without penalty.

• An app that helps fleet customers manage end-of-contract vehicle wear and tear charges, which brings greater transparency to an often contentious issue.

Leasing Company of the Year 2017
