Seat introduces fleet quality scheme

The Spanish car maker, whose fleet sales grew for the third consecutive year in the UK in 2011, has introduced a 12-point plan to give ‘exemplary service’ to drivers of Seat’s fleet cars.

As part of the plan, Seat will not only guarantee service standards but will also set maximum prices for customers including £7.50 for a litre of fully synthetic oil and £35 for an MOT.

The prices, which Seat has promised to not breach, will be available at 120 Fleet Service Partners which will host trained technicians.

Nigel Griggs, Head of Aftersales at Seat UK, said: ‘We’re serious about the high quality of service drivers can expect from our Fleet Service Partners and want them to be sure that the SEAT network is the best choice for them.

Seat has targeted fleet sales in the UK over the past 12 months with equipment and design upgrades for the likes of the large Seat Exeo saloon, the practical Seat Alhambra people carrier and its popular small cars such as the Seat Ibiza and Seat Leon.

Seat’s popularity with business users is boosted by the availability of ‘Ecomotive’ diesel engines across its engine range.

The Seat Ecomotive models offer some of the lowest running costs in their respective segments with the likes of the Seat Ibiza Ecomotive and Seat Leon Ecomotive offering road tax-free versions courtesy of emissions below the 100g/km mark.

Steve Robertson, Head of Fleet and Business Sales at Seat UK, said: ‘Our continuing mission is to become a fleet manufacturer of choice, and I firmly believe that this excellent new 12-point charter reinforces our growing reputation as a company that is, simply, easy to do business with.
