Connecting with small businesses………..
Battling through the current credit crunch is not much fun for anybody as we all know. Every day on the news you hear more gloom and doom stories, say Ralph Morton the Editor of Business Car Manager. www.businesscarmanager.co.uk
One thing has become quite clear however: all of a sudden small businesses are big news. It might have taken a financial crisis to get there, but at long last the 4.6 million small businesses out there are starting to get some recognition from government, from the public, and sometimes, even the banks.
Much of the credit can be attributed to the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB). This tireless organisation is the UK’s largest SME campaigning pressure group. It promotes and protects the interests of the self-employed and small firm owners. It nags and argues the case with the government, constantly reminding Westminster that there’s more to business life than large plcs and FTSE 100 companies.
Currently there are over 215,000 FSB members. This includes the founder of Compare Contract Hire.com. The FSB does well because it makes the case intelligently and fully understands its market and the small business mindset. It recently advised small businesses to get more than one quote before purchasing any product or service to get value for money – good advice in these tough economic times and this can be applied to obtaining car or van contract hire leasing quotations but where do you start?
Small businesses will benefit financially and save time by using sites like CompareContractHire.com and by going direct to the vehicle finance company. There are multiple quotes available on the site, from several finance companies and as you will see prices do vary considerably at www.comparecontracthire.com potentially saving you hundreds of pounds over a three year contract.
For example on a quotation for a BMW 1 Series 118 Diesel 3 Door Step Auto on a three year contract, non maintained business contract hire lease rental , 10000 miles per annum, the least expensive rental showing is £300.00 per month and the most expensive rental quoted is £318.72 per month (exclusive of VAT), a difference of £18.72 per month.
Over a three year contract on a 3 + 35 payment plan i.e. 38 payments that equates to a potential £711.36 saving by using the site.
Comparecontracthire.com is the UK’s first vehicle contract hire leasing price comparison site targeting small businesses. The site also provides a wealth of information on motoring related matters and tries to simply vehicle contract hire jargon in what can be a complex subject.
