We have at last had it confirmed from Ford that the Blue Service programme will be available to all customers, no matter what the funding basis of your car. Blue service includes Ford Assistance, a free breakdown recovery service in the UK and Europe and all you have to do is have your Ford serviced every 12 months or 12,000 miles
at your local Ford service centre. Accident management is thrown in free as well. When first launched the deal was branded as retail, with business cars excluded but Ford have recently confirmed that all business and fleet vehicles are included.
Ford have said that they intend having a bespoke, Ford Fleet BlueService, but in the meantime all cars will be covered on the existing scheme. With the The Choices Faced by Corporate Car Drivers already difficult to make, its good to see a manufacturer going some way to taking away one of the worries.
Additionally, Ford will be adding Nectar Loyalty points to the scheme for all drivers, with two points given for every £1 which the customer spends.
If your company cars are Fords and you are not enrolled, contact us at CarLease UK and we will liaise with your dealer to make sure you get registered.
