We are thrilled to announce that we are launching our own market-leading Affinity Scheme that will reduce employers’ car leasing costs and help them to attract, reward and retain employees.
The Total Motion “Affinity Scheme”, offers a whole array of benefits for both employers and employees and is the only scheme of its kind which is HMRC-approved.
Available at no extra cost to employers, it also provides businesses with alternative ways of rewarding staff at a time when companies are moving away from the traditional ‘perk’ of the company car. For employees, participation in the scheme can result in savings of more than £1,000 per vehicle.
Simon Hill, managing director, comments: “Companies’ car buying habits are changing. Vehicle cost is still a major factor but so is risk management, car taxation, driver management and the future of vehicle funding.
“Our Affinity Scheme recognises these changes and has come up with a product which is very attractive to both employers and their employees.
“It is a significant employee benefit and retention tool which enhances employee satisfaction.”
Exciting benefits for employees include preferential pre-owned and new car discounts, plus the ability to share discounts offered through the scheme with close family members.
Our scheme’s website is entered via a password protected portal and employees can, within 60 minutes, choose and order their car – which can be any make or model.
Additionally, our scheme includes a Special Personal Contract Hire (“PCH”) product for those staff leaving company car plans. This comes with low or nil deposit and maintenance and insurance included, offering a seamless transition from the company car.
There are no unexpected maintenance or repair costs – subject to normal wear and tear conditions – meaning that employees’ money is protected as they are less likely to be hit with a big repair bill.
For employers, our scheme has myriad attributes, including, the ability to dictate who benefits from it, access to all available funding products and the convenience and consistency of dealing with just one point of contact for all vehicles.
It also improves legal compliance around grey fleet – cars which are driven by employees on company business but which are not leased, owned or hired by the company.
In recognition of this growing part of the market, our Affinity Scheme delivers a grey fleet management option that deals with aspects such as risk, cost, health and safety, vehicle operation and environmental issues.
Simon adds: “As an award-wining business – which has just been named by the London Stock Exchange Group as one of 1000 companies that inspire Britain – we are constantly looking for fresh, innovative ways of enhancing our offer to clients and adding value.
“We’re looking forward to employers and their employees taking full advantage of our Affinity Scheme’s many features.”
Total Motion is partnering with insurance companies and will, over time, roll out our Affinity Scheme to include all motoring related services.
Simon continues: “We plan to offer discount fuel cards, parking and hotels, for instance, with the scheme having the option to include a fully maintained vehicle package.”
