DAYS Fleet is the new name for Days Contract Hire with the rebrand reflecting both the comprehensive range of solutions it offers to private and public sector fleets across the UK and the changing face of the nation’s company car sector.
Independent, but benefiting from the full ownership and backing of Days Motor Group, rebranded Days Fleet operates in excess of 9,000 funded vehicles and has more than 60 employees.
The name change heralds a move by the company to provide its wide range of bespoke in-life fleet management and mobility solutions to a growing number of employers that may outright purchase company cars and vans or fund them through a third party provider.
That is expected to herald growth in the company’s core funded fleet but, critically, major expansion in managed vehicles – company cars and vans and ‘grey fleet’ vehicles.
Days Fleet director Aled Williams has overseen expansion of the business over the past 18 years and explained that the company was far more than a provider of contract hire.
He said: “The fleet market has changed rapidly in recent years and continues to evolve very quickly. Clients and prospects are looking for total mobility solutions; that may embrace vehicle funding or may not.
“Days Fleet offers a wide range of ancillary in-life vehicle management products which are part of the mainstream enabling best practice management of cars, vans, drivers and journeys.”
Admitting that it can be difficult to talk to clients and prospects about providing a cradle-to-grave fleet solution when a business has the words ‘contract hire’ in its name, Mr Williams, said: “Days Fleet is a dynamic company and by changing its name it is moving with the fleet market as it continues evolve. We are able to offer existing and prospective clients far more than contract hire or finance on vehicles.”
In recent years the company has expanded to provide a complete range of in-life vehicle, driver and journey management services in addition to a comprehensive array of vehicle funding solutions.
