Showcasing the Best of Welsh Business

Volvo: A Start-Up Guide to Corporate Motoring


This article has been submitted by Volvo

If you are running a start-up business then your focus will no doubt be placed on growth, wanting to stamp your company’s name in its niche for the foreseeable future. With the Welsh start-up community growing by the day, we at Volvo thought we would paint a clear picture of the corporate motoring options available to new Welsh businessmen and women, helping those seeking transport solutions source the best cars and deals on the market.

Choosing your vehicle

As a new business, image is key, wanting to convey the right message to customers, affiliates and employees. This is why you should be careful when selecting your business vehicle; especially if you intend on wrapping it up with corporate branding. For instance, if your business prides itself on its eco-friendly nature, you may wish to look at options such as the V60 Plug-in Hybrid.

Before enquiring about a corporate car, ask yourself the following questions:

  • How much do I want to spend monthly?
  • How long do I intend on having the car?
  • What do I need the car for?
  • Are there any additional costs to consider?
  • Estimated annual usage

Finance options

With cashflow infamously being one of the biggest gripes amongst start-ups, you may want to consider the finance options available to you and your company. Recently, we have seen a huge increase in businesses opting to lease their company cars rather than purchasing them, enjoying the flexibility and competitive rates such an agreement provides.

With flexible term contracts and VAT payable at 20%, Volvo’s Business Contract Hire packages are designed to be affordable, convenient, flexible and simple. What is so wonderful about these packages is that they can be tailored to your individual needs, whether you want just one vehicle or are running a fleet.
