Fleetcare - Celebrating 25 Years

Jess Wallace | 22/10/2014 3:05:57 PM

'When we established Fleetcare 25 years ago we didn’t want to be like other fleet management companies. We wanted to create a business that was inspired by customers and dedicated to delivering a first class service. Rather than relying on our purchasing power to secure sales, we listened intently to our customers and tasked ourselves with saving them time and money in the most unlikely places – from fuel consumption and maintenance, to roadside recovery and management inf...

Volkswagen fight for number 1 spot

Rory Deegan - Online Marketing Coordinator | 25/11/2011 2:22:05 PM

It was 11.09am on a hot Perth morning at the VW drive day, my palms were sweaty and my heart was pounding, I was facing my first ever slalom time trial and I was nervous. As it turns out I posted an average speed and my trial went off without incident but that was just an aside. In the time waiting for my run at the course I had learned just how exciting VW and its future really is.   VW progress In the past few years VW has been growing its market share, slowly and quietly, in...

The all new Holden Barina - Top ten material?

Rory Deegan - Online Marketing Coordinator | 23/09/2011 3:52:29 PM

Walking into the Melbourne docklands warehouse that hosted the Holden Barina launch I was immediately confronted with two vehicles. One was Holdens first attempt at the Barina, its boxy awkward frame reminded me of my mothers old 1980’s Ford Fiesta which would break down at the most inopportune of times (once on the beach as the tide was coming in). The other was the all new Holden Barina, which despite its less aesthetically pleasing predecessors offered a very unique and bold take on ...

The Perth Motor Show 2011; A review

Rory Deegan - Online Marketing Coordinator | 25/08/2011 9:37:09 AM

The Perth Motor Show returned to the Perth Convention Centre after a 3 year break to mixed reviews, tentative expectations and guarded optimism. The show was engaging and enjoyable but cost cautiousness on behalf of the organisers (and car manufacturers) was evident as some more fun motor show elements were absent.   Highs and lows While the motor show was largely a successful venture with their event managers reporting the attendance in the 30,000 region it has to be said that...

Nissan Dualis Drive Day: Shifting my perception of light SUV’s

Bowan Spanbroek - Marketing Co-ordinator | 4/10/2010 11:11:20 AM

The new cross over segment that has been emerging over the past 4 years is somewhat of an enigma in the fleet industry. Is it a 4WD is it an SUV or is it a wagon? No it’s a light SUV or a family crossover or maybe a compact SUV……. I think. Whatever you name it, the growth in this segment is impossible to ignore with a massive 35% growth year to date (source: VFACTS). But is that growth just from young families and people with too many dogs or has fleet started to see value...
