Risks around grey fleet and how to avoid them

It can be a tricky topic where businesses are concerned... However, the grey fleet - which refers to any vehicle used for making a work-related journey, which is not owned or leased by the organisation itself - can be managed effectively when the right steps are taken. With 12 billion miles driven each year in grey fleet vehicles, it comes as no surprise that employers are paying out over five billion pounds a year in mileage claims and car allowances.

With recent news suggesting that grey fleet drivers may be over-claiming on their mileage accounts, this adds up to a lot of extra costs for businesses across the country. The British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association is in fact urging bosses to get to grips with the grey fleet by targeting a 50% reduction in mileage and costs by 2020.

Homeowner turns to Lock Lock for reassurance

* Homeowner-tweet.jpg
When homeowner Tim Morgan realised that multiple houses on his estate were being primed by unwanted intruders, he turned to Lock Lock in order to secure his home and more importantly, his young family.

There is little to add to his captivating comment on Facebook that was posted on February 24th, 2018: 'What an amazing product. Decided to install these after multiple houses on our estate were being tried for entrance. Last night a neighbour had to chase a burglar out of his house too. Delivery was very fast (next day) and they were easy to install (about 10mins each) and only needed a screw driver. Feel extremely safe now they are in place. Can sleep at night again without worry. Thanks Lock Lock.'
