Why leasing with Arval
Arval brings a personal touch to car leasing
We focus on you and your drivers and get to know you. Many people think of car leasing as a B2B service. Arval sees it as person-to-person: it’s what we mean by “leasing with a personal touch.”
A single contact who knows your company well
The Account Manager is your single point of contact in all day-to-day aspects of managing your fleet. Whatever the issue – perhaps negotiating the best deals for you or managing the servicing and repairs of your vehicles – you can rely on a professional dedicated to your company, who will forge a close working relationship with you and your drivers. Arval Account Managers find the right solution for each question in line with the Master Agreement, the Service Level Agreement and your Company Car Policy.
The account team keeps your fleet running smoothly
An Account Team, led by the Account Manager, ensures that you are always at the heart of our activities. The Account Manager, central to the team’s organisation, is your single point of contact. He or she works with an Account Team, made up of operational experts, who book cars in for repairs, arrange replacement vehicles and much more.
We always ensure that we are closer to our clients than other players in the market. This is because our unique structure allows us to leverage all the advantages of being a large operator while giving our clients the benefit of dealing with a small entrepreneurial office. We make sure our interactions never lose that personal touch.
A fleet policy that matches your company policy
Arval's aim is to build a long-term relationship with clients, rooted in an understanding of their needs and objectives. A key component of that relationship-building is efficient fleet management with a solid Company Car Policy at its core.
A fleet policy that suits you
To determine the fleet policy that best suits your company, Arval uses four key measures: We examine the technical and financial parameters, then analyse the policy's HR and CSR impact. We guarantee a selection of vehicles that is right for you, and offer the best funding and service options available. Your requirements, be they short or long-term, are guaranteed to match your budget. Arval also strives for a motivated workforce, and for a fleet policy that is safe and environmentally sound.
How you and your drivers benefit
A solid and well thought-out fleet policy helps you secure more stable and predictable fleet costs, ensure optimal driver use of your vehicles, and end up with limited legal, social, and health and safety risks. Your drivers are fully briefed on their rights and duties, they are well treated, and therefore more motivated.
Your fleet policy helps us understand your priorities -- it’s the foundation of everything we do.
Your drivers can play a role in keeping costs down
Arval offers a unique interface through which your drivers can select, manage and service their vehicles. They are informed of their usage via live digital tools, helping control costs.
One single point of contact
Arval handles all aspects of the leasing contract with the driver: the selection and configuration of the vehicle, based on the criteria set out in your company's car policy; vehicle ordering and management; and driver training, including on eco-friendly use and safety. We manage any complaints that come up, make service bookings, and manage accidents in the unfortunate event that they happen.
Keeping drivers alert and aware
Information is key to a successful relationship between Arval and the drivers it oversees. As a result, we offer your drivers a consistent flow of data: via state-of-the-art mobile applications, and access to an online platform that includes an archive of historical data. That way, your drivers are regularly informed of their usage of the leased vehicle -- and aware of the corresponding costs.
Controlling your running costs
On average, companies using Arval find that their running costs decrease by 10%. How do we do that? Simply by improving your drivers' behaviour at the wheel. Drivers are involved as much as possible in the use of their car, and are kept informed about it, too: a quarterly summary compares their damage record, servicing costs, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions with pre-established standards.
Measuring driver satisfaction
We like to ensure that the relationship with Arval is beneficial from your drivers' standpoint. We therefore survey them regularly to find out about the condition of the vehicle they took delivery of and the quality and speed of the service provided to them as clients, at the time of delivery and beyond. And we welcome any recommendations they might have as to improvements in the relationship.
Digital services specially designed for drivers
Arval delivers the very latest technology to your drivers: mobile applications that inform them of their vehicle use and help improve their skills at the steering wheel.
This mobile application provides your drivers with the vehicle-specific information and documentation that they need, when and where they need it. In the process, it saves your company valuable time and money. The application, which is available for all mobile users, offers live maps pointing out the closest service and maintenance sites, an archive of documents, user statistics and messages from Arval. Drivers can book a service appointment directly via their smartphone or tablet, and they can also access helpful documents.
Features available to drivers via Arval Mobile+ include:
- Use of GPS technology
- Full vehicle contract details and a countdown to the renewal date
- Direct access to Arval's round-the-clock telephone support teams
- Mapping of service and maintenance sites
- A service booking page
- An archive of documents
- Quarterly statistics
We advise you on a company car policy that matches your organisation’s needs.
