KeyFleet was established in late 2007, and incorporated in March 2008, by brothers Lee and Marc Mcloughlin as a vehicle supply, finance and leasing brokerage based in Accrington, Lancashire. Originally the business was almost wholly focused on retail offer based vehicle leasing to both private and business clients in the UK. However, as the business and the team grew so did the demands of our client base, which was increasingly the small to medium size business operating 10 or more vehicles. Whilst our business ethos is to always over deliver and nurture relationships, we developed into two clear approaches of both an price driven online leasing model for personal and businesses clients and a field based local account manager service focused on providing holistic fleet solutions and added value for businesses that operate a number of vehicles.
In 2012 we entered the fleet management arena following consultation with 16 of our 10+ vehicle business clients and asked them what other fleet tasks we could help them with up and above the supply of vehicles and finance. The response we received was vast but unsurprisingly common across nearly all the clients but generally focused
As both a market leasing vehicle leasing consultancy and a full service fleet solutions specialist we deal with a range of clients including:
Personal Customers - Personal leasing and contract hire is big business these days with almost as many private leases being taken out as there are by businesses. We aim to set the standard in this market and apply our professional approach to each private client we deal with. Through our range of tactical deals and special offer lease contracts with
Small Businesses - As a small business maybe you need some help deciding if you should look at personal or business leasing? Can you claim on expenses or through your books? What VAT can you claim? For companies that run less than 5
Fleet Operators - While vehicle selection, supply and funding are core to a
Thankyou very much for sorting out the two Audi A8's. Hand over at Audi was trouble free,really pleased with the cars,thanks very much once again for your service and I will look forward to dealing with KeyFleet again
Patrick Bailey - Altham Car Recyclers
Hi Marc, just a quick note to say how please I was with the new Mercedes car today.The dealer delivery driver was very polite, professional and carried out an excellent handover. Nothing was too much trouble and he answered any queries I had very well. The call with the dealer to confirm the delivery was good also, and they filled me with confidence to deal with any future issues that I may have. The call from Chantel at your office this afternoon to check everything was OK, was a nice touch as well. I must say that my first dealings with Keyfleet and the supplying dealer have been excellent.
John Lawrence - Prestige Fleet
We have always found KeyFleet very competitive and have ordered several vehicles from them over the years. We have a great relationship with the team and look forward to our future business together.
Dan Tattersall - MSL Legal Services Ltd
Car arrived safely and I am thrilled to bits with it, it is lovely!Many thanks for your efficiency in ensuring its safe delivery, much appreciated.
Elaine Gray - British Dressage
I would like to thank KeyFleet for their hard work and support in finding me a new car, friendly staff, prepared to go that extra mile for you, makes this an easy task. Will definitely use KeyFleet again in the future.
Granby Roofing & Building Ltd
Thanks for all your help, will certainly be using you again.
Lisa Bower - Dance & Leisurewear Ltd
KeyFleet were recommended to me by our insurance company and I contacted them along with several other companies to acquire some quotes for our new company fleet. Marc was great in coming to meet us and helping us with our new fleet and what would be best to run and best in running costs. We ordered 5 VW Caddys which were delivered with no problems and on time we have now ordered more vans from KeyFleet, all of which have gone smoothly and I look forward to doing more and more business with Marc and the team. I would have no problems recommending KeyFleet to any other companies as their service they provide is out standing.
Alan Stockton - Proline Mechanical Ltd
KeyFleet were recommended to me by a colleague so I contacted them along with several other companies for quotes for seven new company vehicles. I can honestly say Tony was the friendliest, most helpful and enthusiastic person I spoke to! His personality along with his eagerness to find the deal that was right for Recycling Lives was one of the reasons I progressed my initial enquiry before even discussing prices. Tony always responded to queries immediately and has a sense of humour which makes dealing with him a joy. I would not hesitate to recommend him and will certainly be back in touch with him at the end of this contract.
Rachel Morris - Recycling Lives Ltd
KeyFleet have always demonstrated a willingness to really understand our fleet requirements and provide great advice. From helping us select the right vehicles and the right funding method through to maintenance and fuel management.
Matthew Herd - The Cardboard Box Co Ltd
We only operate a small number of company vehicles but have found KeyFleet to be competitive on all quotations and with a great service to back this up. We will continue to use KeyFleet for the replacement of our vehicles next year.
James Watson - The Surface Print Co Ltd
We first engaged KeyFleet Automotive during 2011 in order to deal with our leasing requirements for our company vehicle fleet. They demonstrated an ability to grasp our requirements clearly and has consistently been able to marry the often competing requirements of achieving the optimal commercial result for the company with a genuine concern and consideration for us. It has been during our meetings that KeyFleet have displayed a thorough expertise in their field guiding us through the process with consummate skill such that we have been able to rely on them entirely to deal with all the statutory requirements, leaving us free operationally to continue to manage the business. Tony Greenwood from KeyFleet is now regarded as a genuine member of our team who has contributed significantly to Willowbrook. He responds immediately to any questions or issues we have and can be relied upon to represent the very best values of our company to the outside world.
Elaine Brady - Willowbrook Hyndburn Ltd
As a business we had traditionally purchased all of our company vehicles either outright or via finance agreements. However, following consultation with Marc at KeyFleet we quickly saw the benefits of contract hire a decided to replace our fleet of 14 cars and 4 vans over a 3 year period. Im pleased to say that we have since repeated this process in 2011/2012 and are more than happy not only with the benefits of the product but also the service we receive from the entire team at KeyFleet.
Anthony Clarkson - Padiham Glass Ltd
I've known the directors at KeyFleet for many years and we have been with them since 2007 when we only had 2 vehicles on fleet. Now we have around 15 vehicles and we have never looked elsewhere for a vehicle and funding provider. We have a great relationship with all the team and cant fault the service we receive and would feel comfortable recommending them as a supplier.
Helen Sharples - Under One Roofing Ltd
We have been aware of KeyFleet Automotive for approximately a year, and we finally invited them to quote for some vehicles that were due for renewal earlier this year. However, upon dealing with KeyFleet, we noticed that they were extremely competitive against other quotations we had received. Their flexibility and willingness for our business was something we had never experienced with our incumbent suppliers, we really felt appreciated as a client by Tony Greenwood and the team at KeyFleet. We certainly enjoy an efficient and friendly service from KeyFleet and we look forward to doing more business in 2012.
Mary Riley - Krones UK Ltd
We first instructed KeyFleet in 2010/2011 to aid us with the supply of our 40 strong commercial vehicle fleet. Following KeyFleet's successful negotiation of additional supply discount from Volkswagen we have since taken delivery of almost 25 vehicles. We enjoy great value from KeyFleet as well as excellent after sales service through their fleet management and maintenance product.
Paul Williams - Globe Transport Ltd
The trend of purchasing and maintaining our fleet outright was no longer a cost-effective solution for our organisation. After consultation with Tony at KeyFleet, the ongoing process of replacing our vehicles has been simple and efficient with the local and direct service received from KeyFleet both refreshing and reassuring as far as our future replacements are concerned. We look forward to moving over the remainder of our fleet as each vehicle falls due and continue to be impressed with the features and flexibility that contract hire affords. Thanks again for the reliable service and advice provided throughout our procurement process. We shall certainly look forward to our future transactions, and shall not hesitate in recommending KeyFleet amongst our network of business associates.
Jason Kent - Cobble Blackburn Ltd
When we needed to replace our fleet of 8 commercial vehicles in 2008 we went out to 3 leasing companies and KeyFleet impressed us the most. We will soon be ordering our third batch of engineers vans in addition to directors cars. We have found KeyFleet to be very competitive for supply of cars and commercials and would recommend them to friends, family and clients.
Lee Moulden - Club Fruit Services Ltd
Service is behind everything we do at Tyson and we expect the same in all of our suppliers and KeyFleet do not disappoint. We purchase all of our vehicles rather than lease however KeyFleet were able to offer us a superior discount that what was available to us via the local dealership in addition to favourable HP rates when compared to our bank. Congratulations on your success and we wish you all the best for the future.
Andrew Gibson - Tyson Lighting Ltd
I approached Tony Greenwood from KeyFleet after meeting him at a networking event to give me a quote for my first company vehicle. Tony didnt just sit down and take my order. He asked me questions in order to make sure I was leasing the right car for the business needs. Once I had chosen the car Tony came in a helped me fill out the paperwork and later informed me the delivery date of our new vehicle. Since then I have passed Tonys details to clients and they have had an exceptional service also from Tony. Tony is approachable, has a great sense of humour whilst being professional and wears his values on his sleeve.
Laura Hartley - L Hartley Recruitment
We have been clients of KeyFleet Automotive for the last twelve months and have also recommended them to our client base. We have always found them extremely helpful, efficient, courteous, but more importantly work very hard to ensure that we and our clients receive the best solution for our automotive requirements whether it be cars or commercial vehicles. We would strongly recommend them to anybody because of this, and indeed have only received positive and complimentary remarks.
Paul Newsham - Haines Watts Accountants
We engaged KeyFleet's services in 2011 as an alternative supplier to our long standing relationship with our present company vehicle provider. Multipart does not have a full time Fleet Management resource in-house so it has been a weight off our shoulders to be able to work with KeyFleet. Every step of the way they have provided a quick, friendly and flexible service to us. As is any company, Multipart is looking for value for money and Tony goes the extra mile to ensure my drivers get as much car for their money as they can. I have been impressed with the way Tony relentlessly uses his skills and contacts to seek out every option to get the cars that we need- not everyone would do that.
Rachel Paul - TVS Supply Chain Solutions
Thanks for all your help, will certainly be using you again.
Lisa Bower - Dance and Leisurewear
Quite simply the most hassle-free way to source a car. I got a great deal on the car itself, plus servicing, driveaway insurance, and breakdown cover included. Tony, Becky and Chantel were very attentive and efficient throughout the process.
Philippa Greenwood - Saville Consulting
We have been very happy with the service provided so far... and long may it continue. We have two sets of keys and the handbook for the Volkswagen polo.
Stuart - Intoto Design Leeds

This is the second car you have organised for me and again I was most impressed by the proffesionalism of your team and look forward to doing business with you again.
Paul Fletcher - Kent County Auctions
A big thank you to KeyFleet for supplying my new 7 series, the car is a dream to drive. The service you provided was excellent from start to finish, even though I left without my cheque! Special thank you to Joe for sourcing the vehicle and helping offload my existing vehicle. I will definitely be back for my next car in 2 years time.
David Booth - Director HKAFS
Once again a great service. Seamless from my last car to the new one and I was kept up to date all the way along. Great price too!

To everbody at KeyFleet I would like to say Thank-you for a 1st Class service and a special thank-you to Chantel for her diligence with the purchase and delivery of my new Iveco Daily 35C13 Crew Cab Tipper. All went very smoothly.
Mark Craddock - M A Craddock Builders
This is the second car I have had from this company and not only did they make the whole process simple and easy for me they were also offered me the best deal (I did shop around). Very pleased with the service received from start to finish - including the delivery driver who brought the car. Ordered a Volvo XC60 - lovely car.. very pleased. Well done guys - would definately recommend you!
Shahid Rana - Zium Ltd
Many thanks for your great service. Initial enquiry with Joe was a very fast response in providing: Spec Built - Volvo C30 T5 R Design Geartronic. Great customer service from Becky & Chantel, helping me through the DVLA nightmare of changing plates. And keeping me amused during all the self imposed pain of recovering it.
Excellent deal with a very professional company.
I would recommend you to anybody looking for leasing. Loved the experience of not dealing with pushy showroom dealerships that do not really care. Great Car looking forward to 3 years of happy motoring. I will be back!
Graham Shaw - SMITH group uk ltd
KeyFleet were excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. When I was changing cars Ford were on a new build, the car I wanted was very difficult to source. Everyone I spoke to was very helpful and I would certainly use them again and have no hesitation in recommending them.
Mary Ainsworth - Haines Watts
Dear Marc & Chantel, Once again I recieved a fantastic level of service from both of you. Right from the very start when I was looking for my new car, through to delivery. Even though there was a long delay due to the manufacturer I was kept updated at all times and won't hesitate to come back to you.
James Whyte - Williams & Donavan Estates
Just short note to say what a fantastic job you and your company did in sourcing the Scirocco recently. The service from your company was excellent and the communication and professionalism of your staff very impressive.
I would certainly come to you again when I need another vehicle and would recommend your company to both my friends and business contacts.
John Tyrell - Superchannel Limited
Dear Marc, just a quick note to say that it has been a pleasure to use you again for the A3. You have made the whole process very easy. Much appreciated.
Adam Bookman - Simon Adams Solicitors
Thank you Marc and Chantel for making my second deal even better than the first. Ever the consummate professionals, nothing was too much trouble, everything was dealt with in a timely manner, and much better to deal with than the local dealership, with a better price to boot. I'm certain we'll do another deal in 3 years time. Thanks again!
Nick Taylor - NJT Design
A very professional service and phone calls returned when requested! I will definitely use KeyFleet for any future requirements and will continue to recommend you to friends, collegues and family.

Sam Mcloughlin - Creative Republic
Dealing with KeyFleet is always a pure pleasure; they are extrememly proffesional in what they do! I have now leased quite a few cars from Marc, for my company and always been very impressed at the ease of leasing a car from them, as oppose to other competitor vehicle leasing companies. First class customer service every time I deal with them, nothing is too much trouble. I will deal with them time and time again for all my cars.
The Bridal Warehouse
Thanks for all your efforts in getting us the vehicle that we really love. Its all we wished for and more.
Jemma James - Jemma James Properties
Just slick - KeyFleet made it so simple it was almost a joke. No slick selling techniques, they just dealt in fact. Listened to me and then delivered the car in double quick time. 7 days, start to finish I will certainly be using these guys again.
Roddy Rutland - The Headwear Stockists
I would just like to thank all at KeyFleet for arranging the lease on the C class, love the car and I am very grateful for all the hard work put in to ensure it was delivered on time. I was also very impressed by the way I was kept constantly updated – all in all a first class service.

Paul Todd - Momentum Business Solutions
KeyFleet provide a professional service with good communication and plenty of updates. I would recommend the company to any future customer.
Roy Provan - Evolve Selection Ltd
Andrew and I started the business after working together for many years.Throughout that time we have had expensed company cars. As such, it was important to us that not only should we get good value on the car deal but also that we could include any running costs as part of the deal. After a short but concise meeting with KeyFleet we agreed a deal for the cars that was not only excellent value but included road tax, servicing, tyres, breakdown and accident aftercare. I cant recommend KeyFleet enough.
This is the fourth vehicle I have sourced through KeyFleet and everytime I have not been able to find a better deal anywhere else. Not only that but the communications you provide post order mean that I am always kept informed. Thanks once again.
Saf Zumla - iCare Services
Car arrived on time as promised and a happy chef means good food so thank you! This is the second car I have arranged for my head chef from KeyFleet and each time I have been very impressed and satisfied with the service from yourselves. Top marks.
James Hoole - Burlingtons Bar & Grilll
The way you have handled my car deal has restored my faith in the motor trade. As you know this was the first time I have leased a car and you have made it all very easy and answered my endless questions with accurate information and advice. The price was what first attracted me to KeyFleet but your service is what will keep me with you. Well done.
Ben Slaven - Function18.com
KeyFleet proved a fantastic choice for our company cars. We have since introduced many of our clients to them without a single bad report. Keep up the good work.
Lee Smith - Destiny Business Solutions
I was more than satisfied with the deal you put together for me on the Audi. The option to put more payments down enabled me to meet my monthly budget which was great. I have already used the maintenance card to arrange new tyres, the Kwik Fit mobile service was really handy. Please contact me at the end of this deal and we can discuss a replacement, sorry for the delayed reply.
Andy Edwards - Lakes Golf
Hi guys, thank you all once more for sorting the Merc deal for me. Superb service and price is a winning combination for me! Please pass my regards on to the team.

Marc & Chantel, cars are great thanks. The Audi is fab and my collegue is over the moon with the Citroen (I didn't know it had so many toys in it!). Thanks again and Ill speak to you soon.

I have recently taken delivery of 6 VW Caddy vans from KeyFleet and found them a pleasure to deal with. Its a rarity to find a company that delivers on value and service, my thanks to all at KeyFleet. Speak to you in the winter when my car is due for renewal.
Mike Bridges - Empire Construction
I would like to thank you and the team for one of the best buying experiences I have ever had! From day 1 the level of service has been excellent with everyone actually delivering what they said they would. As you can appreciate I put the initial enquiries out to a number of organizations and you were the only one that came back promptly with the relevant information. I have already recommended you to anyone who will listen and you can be sure that I will continue to do so. Excellent!"
Richard Rees - MW Security UK
At every single step I was given excellent, informed and honest advice from the entire team at KeyFleet. I surfed the net and scoured the printed word for the best deal out there on my Merecedes and there simply was not a better deal out there. Add this to telephone calls and emails returned when promised, remarkable prices clearly and speedily clarified, along with thoughtful customer care post delivery, and you have the ideal people to do business with. Would recommend for sure.
Mr Simon Robson - Galloping Gourmet
I am writing to let you know how pleased I am with my Audi A6, as you know i have thoroughly searched the market and I am still satisfied I have found the best deal throughout the country. I would also like to thank your team of dedicated people who helped me along the way in choosing the correct deal for my personal needs. The back up service that your company supplies is certainly the best I have ever seen. I will definately recommend you and also use you again.
Matt Machin - The Balloon Tree
Just thought i'd drop you a line, to thank you for the prompt and efficient service I received in the purchase of the Audi A3. Not only was the price competitive, the way the whole deal was dealt with by yourself and members of your staff was very satisfactory. With this in mind, any future requirements regarding the contracting or leasing of vehicles, you will be my first port of call.
Mike Gardner - Image Chemicals Ltd
We have been extremely satisfied with the service provided by your company and would not hesitate to recommend you to others.
