New Toyota Business Drive Direct Delivers Dedicated, Streamlined Services for Business and Fleet Customers

8 February 2018

Toyota Financial Services has established a new Business Drive Direct service, supporting fleet and business customers through a new call centre dedicated to their vehicle requirements.

The project, supported by Toyota GB, has been established to provide a prompt, simple and seamless experience that not only manages all aspects of vehicle sales, contract hire and finance, but also provides an introduction to services provided by the customer’s local retailer.

An experienced team work with customers to identify the vehicles and finance packages that best suit their needs and budgets and, once an order has been placed, will organise delivery to their local retailer. At the same time, they will help set up a good working relationship between the customer and their chosen retailer, to help ensure the best possible after sales service. There are no hidden fees and the service operates 8.30am to 6.00pm weekdays, via a Freephone number, 0800 470 0445. Each customer will be looked after by a dedicated account manager who will remain their personal point of contact throughout the process.

Eamonn Warters, Director of Sales and Marketing Programmes for Toyota Financial Services said: “We are able to go beyond supporting our business and fleet customers with their vehicle purchases to help them form a strong relationship with their retailer, right from the outset. In the past, their choice of retail partner may have been restricted, but our active programme of localisation has opened up new options that can save the customer time and money. There is a potential environmental benefit as well, with customers not having to travel so far for vehicle collections, servicing and repairs.”

Business Drive Direct also has a dedicated web page at with details of the services it provides and an at-a-glance guide to current Toyota contract hire offers. The call centre’s operations will be extended later in February to provide similar services for Lexus customers.
