The right vehicles, at the right time, at the right price

There are so many decisions to be made when it comes to acquiring a fleet. What kind of vehicles do you need? Would it be more cost effective to buy, lease or hire? Should you be investing in low emission vehicles and infrastructure? How can your procurement support local suppliers?

Every year, the Fleet team at CCS helps thousands of public sector organisations to buy, lease or hire their vehicles in a way that meets budget, performance and environmental targets. 

  • choose from a full range of standard build and specialist vehicles, including low emission options, from cars, vans and motorcycles, to coaches, lorries and blue light vehicles 
  • our Fleet Portal makes it easy to compare quotes online in real time
  • market leading discounts – saving an average 18% on leases and 10% on purchases compared with average fleet market discount

The frameworks for you

If you need it, we can help you get it. These frameworks cover the purchase, lease and hire of just about every road vehicle and fuel type you can think of.

  • Vehicle Hire

    This framework is ideal for shorter term or unexpected peaks in demand. Covering car share and car clubs as well as more traditional car rental, it offers solutions to meet all requirements, whether hours, days, weeks or months. There’s also an option to include insurance cover.

  • Salary Sacrifice Solutions

    If you’re acquiring company cars for your employees, a salary sacrifice scheme can help you cut costs, support your green agenda and increase employee satisfaction. This framework includes an end-to-end fleet management service that covers the implementation, marketing and management of such a scheme.

  • Vehicle Purchase

    This framework will help you purchase a fleet that’s fit for purpose and fit for the future, taking cost, social value, sustainability and ease of buying into consideration. You can also buy bespoke conversions through this framework, as part of a turnkey solution.

  • Vehicle Lease

    This framework covers a wide range of vehicle types, from cars to coaches, and includes ultra low emission vehicles. It allows you to lease a range of standard and converted commercial vehicles for 2 or more years. You can also choose service, maintenance and repair options as part of your procurement.

  • Flexible Rental Solutions

    If your vehicle demand fluctuates, you may find that short term rental (28 days or longer) is more cost effective than either daily rental or long term leasing. Responding to your fleet’s operational requirements, this framework gives you fast delivery on a large range of standard and specialist vehicles.

“SCDC led a Recycling Collection Vehicle procurement on behalf of 5 local councils, using a further competition under CCS framework RM6060. CCS was really helpful in assisting with advice and guidance. The design of the framework enabled us to carry out the exercise far quicker than a full Find A Tender Service procurement. The pricing for vehicles was competitive too.”
