Motor dealer appoints fleet manager to help business customers

Swindon motor dealer Pebley Beach has appointed a fleet business manager to help small business owners find the right cars for their needs and budget.

Phil Brodrick has spent 20 years in the motor industry, and the last ten supplying number plates to dealerships across the region – including Pebley Beach.

He joins the firm at a time of change within the industry as manufacturers move from petrol and diesel power to electric motors, and where the government is incentivising company car drivers and fleet managers away from carbon fuel engines towards electric vehicles and hybrids.

"There are already significant tax savings to be made by choosing a low or zero-emissions plug-in vehicle over the equivalent petrol or diesel," said Phil.

"And from next April savings on pure battery and efficient plug-in hybrid electric vehicles will increase dramatically, from 16 percent to zero percent for the equivalent zero-emissions models.

"But choosing the right car is about more than chasing the tax incentive. You'll need to look at the range of the vehicle against the maximum number of miles you might expect to make in a day – including the trip to and from your place of work – as well as the availability of charging points at your place, or places, of work.

"You'll also want to consider the initial cost of a hybrid or EV, which tends to be higher than the petrol or diesel equivalent, but enjoys reduced running costs and is kinder to the environment 

"It's a balancing act, so I'm here to try and find the right car and right funding solution for our business customers."

Financial Disclosure

Pebley Beach Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Pebley Beach Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
