SELECT Car Leasing, founded in 2004 by directors Mark Tongue & James O’Malley, have grown to become one of the UK’s largest independent vehicle leasing specialists.
Supplying cars and vans to both business and personal customers the company delivered 115 vehicles in its first full year and is anticipated to deliver approximately 5,000 vehicles by the end of 2016.
Built with a firm focus on customer service they aim to build long lasting relationships with their customers and have the best staff-retention rates in the industry. As a result, repeat and referral customers make for a large proportion of their business.
They have an ‘Excellent’ feedback rating on independent reviews site Trustpilot as a testament to their customer care. Select Car Leasing are fully regulated by the FCA (Financial Conduct Authority) and are proud members of the BVRLA; the independent industry trade body.
At the turn of the year they took the bold decision to take on an additional premises in Reading town centre and move car leasing to the high street, opening up a shopfront in Market Place and allowing customers to be walked through the process of leasing a car.
So far it has proved a great success and they look forward to welcoming more and more people through the doors.
Since January 2015 Select Car Leasing have also been a key sponsor of Reading Football Club with their brand name appearing on the dugouts and around the ground at every home fixture.
Company director Mark Tongue said of the partnership: “Having recently acquired premises in Reading town centre, this is the perfect time to secure a partnership with a football club so openly invested in its local community.
“We are very much looking forward to working with the Royals and connecting with the club’s supporters.”
Select Car Leasing are also committed to supporting three well known charities namely Sue Ryder, Children with Cancer UK and Rethink Mental Illness.
In September, they donated two brand new Ford Fiestas to local Sue Ryder Hospices to aid with patient care work they carry out on a day to day basis.
Select will also be donating £5 from each new leased car to both Children with Cancer UK & Rethink Mental Illness.
