Nigel Birrell Fleet Management
Accident Management However large or small, accidents can result in a huge amount of unbudgeted time and expenditure. Repairs need to be carefully managed to ensure the costs are fair and accurate including parts and labour, and repairing bodyshops need careful supervision to ensure the vehicle is reunited with the driver at the earliest opportunity, thus cutting down on car hire costs. There is also the time-consuming task of processing all of the administration including collating accident forms, dealing with insurers and third parties and, where necessary, pursuing uninsured losses. We interpret the results of your claims to identify methods of reducing your accident rates, improving your insurance arrangements, improving the service and support to you and your drivers, and streamlining costs. Vehicle policies have grown over the years to become more sophisticated and intricate than ever before.
Getting a policy right can result in strict cost control, lower company and driver taxation, motivated drivers, heightened staff retention, and compliance with essential health and safety regulations. The starting point for any policy review is to assess the ‘current situation’ regarding key financial, HR, operational and legal criteria and agree the ‘desired’ goals for your business, and how the fleet strategy supports that. It is an often overlooked fact that company vehicles form an integral part of overall business strategy, which is careful policy design and implementation are such a vital foundation for on-going fleet operations.
Nigel Birrell Fleet Management Ltd have been running our fleet since 2001. The service we have consistently received has been reliable and friendly. The service is one of outstanding quality, tailored to our specific requirements and delivers real value-for-money. All the staff have a truly excellent focus on client care, and are willing to adapt to our requirements whenever necessary – thank you.
Nilfisk UK outsourced our fleet management to Nigel Birrell in 1996. Our relationship has remained unbroken since then and the length of our association is an illustration of the comprehensive service we have received. We find the team to be knowledgeable, reliable and friendly and believe our fleet management responsibilities are in good hands
Nigel Birrell Fleet Management took over the running of the Igrox fleet in 2004. Being in pest control, we are very aware of ensuring best practise and outsourcing the day to day running of our fleet to a specialist company made good sense. Six years on, we have enjoyed a very good relationship with Nigel Birrell Fleet Management and have received excellent service from them. Regular meetings ensure that both parties are fully updated on all developments such as accident statistics, driver checks, vehicle inspection reports, and all handled for us by a small efficient team. They ensure that our company has the right type of vehicle for purpose, and enjoy good relationships with manufacturers that enable us to demand better deals than would normally be available to our 100 vehicle fleet. Their knowledge of best value suppliers for all our vehicle related expenditure is also invaluable. They handle all aspects of our insurance claims, act as a day to day contact point for the drivers (including 24 hour cover) and our staff enjoy a good relationship with them. Their expertise has allowed us to concentrate on our core business, safe in the knowledge that our 100 vehicle fleet is in good hands.
Nigel Birrell and his staff offer an excellent service, efficiently and effectively managing our car fleet.
