Operational leasing: the smart way to run a fleet

Leasing is the ideal solution to your corporate transportation needs. Why? Because you outsource the concern and routine of managing your company cars. You let us take care of the whole process.

What is operational leasing?

Leasing means letting another company supply you with the vehicles required for your staff to conduct their day-to-day business. Contrary to common belief, leasing is neither cheaper nor more expensive than an outright car purchase: The costs are more or less equal. The primary reason for you to choose the leasing option is that managing vehicles is not your core business -- it's ours. We keep the process smooth and simple. You pay a fixed monthly amount, and we look after the day-to-day administration of the cars. One important added benefit: you reduce the size of your workforce.
Arval will offer you more than just leasing, meaning we focus on the quality of vehicles, quick and easy purchasing and delivery, essential services required for the fleet but also customer care (listening to the voice of customer and driver), transparency, responsiveness, expertise, people who will go the extra mile to find the right solution for you.


Why choose operational leasing?

Businesses regularly outsource many non-core services to specialised operators. The same logic applies to your fleet of vehicles. Opting for operational leasing means benefiting from a specialised company resulting in a range of advantages:

• You outsource all forms of risk relating to the vehicle.

• You minimise the amount of time your staff devote to managing your fleet.

• You can rely on your costs being kept under control at all times.

• You concentrate on your core business, without wasting resources on managing a non-core area.

You know your business; we know ours. You can have complete confidence in our expertise.


You may be mistaken…

“I can’t choose my model or take advantage of special offers.”

Arval is able to deliver benchmark TCO comparison on every brand, make and model, at any moment in time, and our buying power ensures the lowest possible costs.

“Operational leasing is more expensive than outright purchase.”

Operational leasing and outright purchase work out pretty much equivalent, in fact. The big difference is all the hassle that we save you. We understand that you still want to compare your current situation with a possible future situation. Most companies tend to compare costs from the past with future lease costs.
