Banham Group to move to sole supply deal with Vauxhall

The company, Banham Group, runs a fleet of approximately 200 vehicles, including Vauxhall Corsa, Astra and Insignia cars alongside Astravan and Vivaro vans.

The fleet is on a four-year replacement cycle and around 70% of it is Vauxhall product, which will increase to 100% in the near future.

Managing director William Banham said: “Vauxhall has been extremely proactive in supporting us and its fleet set-up is very impressive. It is important to us that our fleet fully represents our company values to the thousands who see it on a daily basis on the roads and therefore it seemed only natural to use the UK’s oldest and most iconic automotive brand.”

The new Vauxhall Combo L1H1 1.6 CDTi delivering 105hp and Vivaro L1H1 1.6 CDTi with 115hp vans have been supplied with Bluetooth and rear parking sensors and have been specified in black with gold signwriting, matching Banham’s well-known branding.

Vauxhall commercial vehicle retailer GO Vauxhall in Wimbledon, which supplied the Combo and Vivaro vans, is also responsible for all servicing and maintenance of Banham’s fleet.

William Banham added: “We have been very pleased with the Vivaro vans already in our fleet, with impressively low servicing and whole-life costs. The fact that they are built in Britain, just like our patented high security locks, is an added attraction.”

James Taylor, fleet sales director at Vauxhall, added: “We are proud to work with British businesses like Banham to support them with all their fleet needs, from cars to vans and see our relationships as more than simply supplying vehicles. We work hard to provide all our customers with the assistance they need, from training to fleet servicing.”
