Over the last decade Vindis Group Fleet has worked with both its customers and its suppliers of support services to structure a centralised fleet facility that provides the business sector with sound advice and a centralised supply solution for all of our brands. Each business has its own individual needs no matter how big or small. Here at Vindis Group Fleet we appreciate and understand this. Therefore, we have put together a dedicated team at our fleet centre that can help provide a tailored solution to meet your company’s requirements.
We can provide information on policy, funding solutions, affinity programs and salary sacrifice. We offer guidance on whole life costings, as well as business and personal tax analysis on precise vehicle specification requirements. Whatever your requirement, large or small, complicated or simplistic, the corporate sales team at Vindis Group Fleet can help provide a bespoke solution based on your individual needs. This can then be backed up by a service level agreement to ensure that what’s right on day one is monitored and reviewed regularly to make sure that we continue to offer a class leading service.
Unsurprisingly, Contract Hire is the most popular funding method by far. It is ideal for businesses that prefer to hire rather than own cars and where having known budgeted cost is important. It's a simple agreement where a rental is paid in return for the use of a vehicle over two, three or four years. The mileage is decided at the start, and maintenance can all be included. This means there is no hassle of selling the car later on, or the worry about how much it'll be worth. At the end of the agreement we will then contact you in order to ensure there is a seamless changeover to the new vehicles.
Specifically designed for businesses, you choose a hire agreement between one and four years. When this primary hire period ends, subject to meeting the terms and conditions of the contract of course, you can sell the vehicle on to a third party on the finance companies behalf. Depending upon the specific terms of the contract you may get a rebate on the rentals, this is normally expressed in percentage terms.
A business form of finance based on ownership. In brief, it enables the company to minimise the monthly rental by having a balloon payment at the end of the agreement based on a predicted residual value. The agreement can last from two to four years. Once the balloon payment is made the vehicle is owned outright.
Hire Purchase - Personal
Pay a fixed deposit, depending on the price of the car you want. The rest is split into monthly payments over one to five years. At the end of your contract when you've made your final payment, the car is all yours. Use the finance calculator to start crunching your numbers. You could own that dream car sooner than you thought.
Personal Contract Purchase
Personal Contract Purchase is a finance agreement which gives a number of purchase choices at the end of the agreement. Once a car has been chosen a guaranteed value is set aside, a term and mileage are chosen, and payments are then based on the difference plus the interest content. At the end of the agreement the individual has the choice to buy, part exchange or hand back the car.
All vehicles that are sold by the Vindis Group are subject to an administrative / preparation fee of £90 inc VAT. For new vehicles this charge covers the cost of mechanically preparing the vehicle for delivery, the administration of new ownership documentation and final preparation for customer handover.
For used vehicles, this charge covers a full history and provenance check prior to being advertised for sale ensuring no financial risk or charge has been levied against the vehicle, that the vehicle has never been written off or stolen and final preparation for customer handover.
Vindis Group believe this level of preparation is crucial in ensuring we provide the highest level of customer satisfaction, for which the Vindis Group is renowned for.
For this reason, and in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, as of 6.00pm 23/03/2020 we made the decision to temporarily close all Vindis showrooms to members of the public. Whist we know this may cause some disappointment, our priority is to protect the well-being of our employees and customers in line with the latest Government guidance. For customers due to take delivery of your new vehicle we will be in contact and will aim to complete your transaction in a safe and compliant manner.
For those customers that are booked in for Aftersales care, all bookings other than those for Key Workers (as identified by the Government’s latest listings), urgent MOT’s and breakdowns are in the process of being cancelled; and each existing booking will have been confirmed with our team in advance of your visit to site. For other routine service and maintenance items, we will be in touch to re-arrange your booking for as soon as we re-open.
In order to facilitate the above, we have opened selected workshops to conduct this work, and all other dealerships are completely closed:
Huntingdon Volkswagen remains open and will conduct service work for Peterborough Audi, Huntingdon Audi and Huntingdon Van Centre Vindis Cambridge Service Centre remains open and will also conduct service work for Cambridge Volkswagen, SKODA Cambridge, SKODA Bury St. Edmunds, Fakenham Volkswagen and Cambridge Audi Bedford Audi remains open and will also conduct work for Bedford Volkswagen and Milton Keynes SEAT Northampton Van Centre remains open and will conduct work also for Northampton Audi and Milton Keynes SEAT
In order to protect both you and our staff, upon arrival, please follow the instructions on the door in order to gain access. Additionally, it is vital that we ask that you do not attend any of our sites without having had a clear and specific communication that you qualify under one of the above guidelines, and we thank you in advance for complying with this difficult and possibly disruptive decision. Please also note that we have amended our service opening hours during this period to 08:30 – 17:30 Monday to Friday and closed during weekends.
Finally, although our showrooms are closed, should you wish to contact us we would be delighted to help you remotely in anyway possible; the best methods in which to contact us is either via email or through the live chat function found on our main Vindis Group website.
Please stay safe through this unprecedented period and we know that by working together, we will come through this stronger.
