Total Motion passes 25,000 mark for managed and funded vehicles

We are celebrating a major achievement, with our fleet of managed and funded vehicles passing the 25,000 mark.  This important milestone for us means we are now the largest privately owned leasing and fleet management company in the UK.

Simon Hill, Managing Director who founded Total Motion in 1999, said a combination of factors was enabling us to win new business and exceed targets in what is a highly competitive sector.

There are a number of reasons for our continued success and sustained growth. They can be attributed in part to our fee structure and how transparent it is when compared to that of our competitors. It’s also down to how we manage our suppliers and the rates they provide, as well as our ability to offer customers the widest range of products and services.

Paris anti-pollution measures are welcome but UK needs to think through Toxicity Charges

New anti-vehicle pollution measures planned for central London have been described by our managing director, Simon Hill, as a short term solution to a long term problem. Simon said the Toxicity Charge, due to be launched in October, was a “start” but he also warned against “kneejerk reaction” decisions to combat a UK-wide issue. The charge is due to be rolled out in October.

Simon’s comments came as he welcomed a decision in Paris to cut pollution through a ban on older vehicles during certain times. The French Crit’Air system – which has also been rolled out in Lyon and Grenoble –identifies six categories. Each vehicle must have sticker specifying its registration year, energy efficiency and emission band. All diesel-fueled vehicles produced from 1997 to 2000 are banned under the scheme.

Simon HillTotal Motion secures major fleet management contract with Tyco

We have recently secured a major contract with security business Tyco to provide a fully outsourced fleet management service covering more than 3,000 cars and vans across the UK and Ireland. We were thrilled to have won the contract after an in-depth tender process.

This agreement also includes looking after Tyco’s grey fleet – cars which are driven by employees on company business but which are not owned, leased or hired by the company. Total Motion will be responsible for all ordering, delivery, in-life and end of life vehicle services, providing accurate reporting on all Tyco’s fleet spend and cost control activity.

Simon Hill, managing director of Total Motion, said our service would complement Tyco’s well proven and cost-effective vehicle acquisition programme.

He commented: “This important contract gain again demonstrates our ability to support clients of all sizes and in all sectors. Our independent status, and being impartial to funding, allows us to take an unbiased approach informed by what a client actually needs rather than what a supplier wants to sell.

Simon HillTotal Motion applauds police use of public dash cams in fight against bad driving

Total Motion has applauded Police use of dash cam footage taken by the public in the ongoing fight against bad and dangerous driving on Britain’s roads.

With traffic police numbers falling by more than 25 per cent in the past six years due to Government cuts, we believe that installing dash cam is a sensible way of bringing lawless motorists to justice, as well as protecting drivers from fraudulent accident claims.

Simon HillWe call for a reform of entire motor insurance claims market

The Government is currently considering proposals which would clamp down on road accident related whiplash and other minor soft tissue injury compensation claims.

As part of its reform plans, the Ministry of Justice is focusing on what defines a minor soft tissue injury and whether this definition should be linked to the length of time a claimant suffers symptoms.

One proposal suggests scrapping the ability for people to recover damages for Pain, Suffering and Loss of Amenity (known as PSLA) for minor soft tissue injuries.

We call for an end to diesel bashing and a look at the bigger picture

We are calling for an end to “diesel bashing” and for a more measured response to the global issue of car pollution.

Simon Hill, Director, says that many politicians, journalists and commentators have made diesel cars an easy target, without looking at how the current situation has arisen.

Simon comments: “For many years diesel has offered the company and private motorist reliability, longevity and a lower cost of motoring.

Simon HillWe welcome tougher speeding fines

We welcome recent changes to the most serious speeding offences, whereby drivers caught speeding far in excess of the limit will now be hit with a 50 per cent higher fine under Sentencing Council rules which came into force on April 24.

Simon Hill, managing director, said: “Speed limits are in place for very good reasons and drivers who ignore them, particularly at excessive speeds, are putting lives in jeopardy and risking catastrophic accidents”.

“Hopefully these new rules will act as a deterrent and encourage the minority who break the law to follow the example of the majority who drive safely and observe the limit.”

The Sentencing Council initiative aims to cut the number of high speed accidents, reflecting the seriousness with which the courts view the worst offences.
