Spring Statement 2018

Posted on by Mark Knight

Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond’s first Spring Statement today (Tuesday, March 13) was an update on the health of the UK economy and the state of the government’s finances, rather than laying out any major new tax or spending announcements.

However, Mr Hammond did mention towards the end of the Statement that he would “help the great British white van driver go green” by holding a consultation on reduced Vehicle Excise Duty rates for the “cleanest vans”. However, the consultation document was not among those published immediately by HM Treasury at the conclusion of the Statement.

Mr Hammond, in a 26-minute statement to MPs in the House of Commons gave an update on the overall health of the economy and the Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) forecasts; an update on progress since last November’s Budget; and invited businesses and the public to give their views on a wide range of measures the government was considering.

Ogilvie support Belfast Giants in Cup winning season

Posted on by Mark Knight

Giants

Like the Belfast Giants, Ogilvie Fleet have had a great 2017/18 season with taking 2 superb awards at the BusinessCar Awards late 2017 – the awards of ‘Leasing Company of the Year – Up to 25,000 vehicles’ and ‘Customer Service Award’ are big achievements for the entire team throughout GB and N.Ireland. 

The Belfast Giants also brought home some fine silverware by winning the Challenge Cup in early 2018.  Paul Griffiths, Head of Sales in N.Ireland commented “we have had great growth with existing and new clients in our local market as our contract hire model is unique and very beneficial to local fleets.  We love having our client nights at the Belfast Giants, it’s a great event to take clients with their families and hear all the kids yelling ‘let’s Go Giants’, and very loudly”!  “We are delighted with our own awards and even more pleased for the guys at the Giants, so much so we will continue our partnership into the 2017/18 season again”.

Eighth successive ExpertEye award for Ogilvie Fleet

Posted on by Mark Knight

Experteye Awards Fleeteye CSI above 250 vehicles winners logo 2018 2

Fleet decision-makers have voted Ogilvie Fleet the UK’s top vehicle leasing and fleet management company for service to customers in the 2018 Experteye awards. 

Topping the category which recognises service to fleet operators with more than 250 vehicles further extends the contract hire and fleet management specialist’s record of winning an Experteye award to an unprecedented eighth year in succession, and the third year in a row for customer service.

Fast-growing Ogilvie Fleet has, in recent years, seen the number of company cars and vans on its books under lease and fleet management arrangements expand to 16,500. In the past 12 months the company has secured more than 60 new customers, with industry-leading customer service and cutting-edge IT instrumental in underpinning that growth.

The latest triumph further builds on Ogilvie Fleet’s six Experteye customer service awards and a customer innovation award won in the previous seven years, thus further underlining the company’s leadership of the UK contract hire and leasing industry in putting clients first.

The Experteye awards cover nine different fleet and automotive categories in total. Ogilvie Fleet’s Fleeteye CSI honour is based on results obtained throughout 2017 from Experteye’s market-leading post-sale customer satisfaction survey, drawn from a subscriber base of top leasing companies in the UK.

Ogilvie supports Cash4Kids Northern Ireland

Posted on by Mark Knight

In December 2017 the Ogilvie Fleet team in Belfast decided to use their client gift fund for NI’s Cash4Kids Christmas appeal.  The Cash4Kids charity raised over £23m in 2017 for 709,000 children around the UK.  Enlighted with the story of the charity, the management at Ogilvie Group in Stirling decided to increase the donation to a very sizeable amount.  The response from Darren at the Cash4Kids NI team showed how much the money was actually needed and sent a heart-warming response as below, you can find out more information about the charity at www.cashforkids.uk.com  :

Hi Paul, THANK YOU SO MUCH!! Please pass this on to everyone that made this donation possible.

Absolutely great news, we have very little older boys left as of right now! You can see below how low the level of this this older age group is compared to the others! We are trying to support 1,110 14-18 year old males still!!

So thanks again for your support! 

Have an amazing Christmas!!
