Mistral opens Bus Shop
Committed to enhancing its presence in the used vehicle sector, Mistral Group is launching a new initiative for used vehicle sales. The Bus Shop is a dedicated site designed to give operators an easy way to view and purchase quality used vehicle stock that is being de-fleeted from Mistral’s rental fleet. Over time The Bus Shop will also act as a sales agent for other end of lease contract vehicles that partner finance companies are looking to market.
The Bus Shop will be home to a large selection of late registered ex-rental fleet vehicles, built by Alexander Dennis Ltd (ADL).
All ex-rental fleet vehicles will undergo rigorous multi-point inspections, come supplied with a long MOT and are further supported by up to a three-month warranty (refer to the warranty section on The Bus Shop website for more on this) for added peace of mind, leaving buyers safe in the knowledge that they are ready to enter immediate service.
“The launch of this dedicated used vehicle disposal arm of the Mistral Group will allow us to engage more directly with a hugely important segment of our industry – those operators that see high quality used vehicle purchase as a key strategy toward enhancing their vehicle fleets” – Mistral’s Used Vehicle Sales Manager, Andy Biggs
Mistral’s Used Vehicle Sales Manager, Andy Biggs, is to head up the new initiative. Andy said: “We are delighted to bring The Bus Shop to market. The launch of this dedicated used vehicle disposal arm of the Mistral Group will allow us to engage more directly with a hugely important segment of our industry – those operators that see high quality used vehicle purchase as a key strategy toward enhancing their vehicle fleets.
“Mistral Group continually invest in new vehicles for its rental fleet, and work hard to keep the market aware of new stock availability, but in the past we’ve been less visible in offering the same market place our end of rental life fleet disposals which still represent great quality vehicles that remain ready to enter service for the next operator. Our new website is easy to navigate and contains search, select and finance features that allow prospective buyers to find the vehicles they need and at the same time understand the funding options available through our associated asset finance business Mistral Asset Finance – together, this offers a true one stop shop when it comes to finding the right used vehicles for fleet.”
