Blackcircles Joins the Fleet Business

(Clacton, U.K./Tyres & Accessories) is to challenge the established fleet market with the launch of its own online fleet service.

Recent appointment, Paul Collins, will be responsible for ensuring consistent delivery and on-going innovation by managing Blackcircles Fleet.

According to the company, the new service will be available to vehicle fleets of all sizes. Furthermore, is said to significantly simplify the purchase process by providing access through a web-based system. Businesses will have their own private area containing all their vehicle details and will be able to make transactions using a unique PIN number.

Blackcircles expects its announcement to be warmly welcomed by fleet managers and boasts that it has “the largest network of fitting stations of any U.K. tyre retailer.” Mike Welch, managing director said: “We have taken all the knowledge gained from our retail business, including all the feedback we have received from customers, and invested this in our fleet service.

“For too long managers have had to contend with complicated systems and a lack of control. We plan to change this with a system that is far easier to use but a lot more effective. Through our unique tyre procurement process and ground breaking delivery mechanisms, Blackcircles Fleet offers forward looking business flexibility, immediacy and savings to their fleet tyre needs.”

Mike added: “Whether it’s five or 5,000 vehicles, one preferred supplier or a managed matrix of tyre outlets, Blackcircles Fleet can be utilised as the primary resource for tyre supply or simply as a secure back up.”

One of the U.K.’s leading online tyre businesses, Blackcircles says managers and small business owners will now be able to have tyres sent anywhere in the U.K. in as little as two hours and will be able to access the lowest prices and over 30 tyre brands.
