The 2,000th vehicle procured through the Pretium Flexible Fleet Service framework has been delivered by Northgate Vehicle Hire.

The PCR 2015-compliant framework was originally launched in 2017 and was reprocured in April 2021, in partnership with contracting authority, Watford Community Housing.

It includes servicing and 24-hour breakdown assistance, along with the option to procure fleet management services, accident management, and EVs and charging infrastructure.

The 2,000th vehicle was an L3H2 Ford Transit, one of 33 LCVs procured by Phoenix Repair Services, a subsidiary of Phoenix Community Housing, which delivers repairs and gas servicing for tenants.

Pretium Frameworks head of frameworks Nick Hann said: “This is an immense milestone to reach, and it is fantastic to see our Flexible Fleet Framework continue to grow. 

“At Pretium, we are aware that a one-size-fits all approach does not work for most businesses when it comes to fleet arrangements, and we pride ourselves on offering a flexible rental package, which reaps many benefits, including a fully serviced fleet, to meet high demand, and increase overall savings.”

Phoenix Repair Services fleet manager Stephen Cox said: “We were very happy with the service, and found it convenient to go through Pretium’s framework. We received a great deal, with competitive rates and would absolutely continue using it in the future.”

Northgate head of strategic accounts Kathleen Whittam said: “It is our mission at Northgate to ensure a cost-saving and flexible solution for our customers, and Pretium’s Flexible Fleet Framework does just that. We are looking forward to helping more businesses find their fleet solutions in the future.”
