The vehicle management team can help with any financial needs that a range of businesses might have. This includes fleets of vehicles, accident management and bespoke business vehicles.
Our Vehicle Management Programme and our expertise and customer care allows us to build and deliver tailored solutions to help operators mitigate risk, reduce cost and improve operational efficiencies.
The vehicle management team provides services to all sized businesses across the UK ranging – from major corporate businesses with complex requirements down to sub-20 fleets of cars, vans, commercial vehicles, trailers or bespoke vehicles.
We offer a range of vehicle management solutions, including:
Accident Management: When an accident occurs, our incident team will manage every part of the repair process on your behalf, from First Notification of Loss (FNOL) and vehicle recovery to vehicle repair and risk management.
Fleet Management: Regardless of the size of your business, a fleet of vehicles is imperative to business efficiency. But operating fleets – as well as sourcing the vehicles themselves – can be a time-consuming task.
Fuel Management: By managing your fleet’s fuel cost, you will be able to save money and streamline processes for both business and driver. Using fuel cards is an alternative way to claiming back costs, improving efficiency and VAT recovery – with no need to keep receipts or manually log transactions.
Risk Management: Our vehicle risk management programme promotes a safety-first culture for all drivers and helps you and your drivers meet regulations when travelling for business purposes. Using our robust driver assessment and training programme will help you monitor driver behaviour and driving style by highlighting real-time events.
Telematics and cameras: We provide clients with a range of data telematics and camera solutions for all vehicles and fleets. Our data capture, analysis and information delivery will support you in reduction of costs, increased operational efficiency and increased driver safety and wellbeing.

Fleet management: Regardless of the size of your business, a fleet of vehicles, be it vans, cars or trucks is imperative to business efficiency.

Vehicle acquisition and sourcing: Our vehicle management division specialises in vehicle acquisition, so we can help source your business vehicles, whether it’s a small fleet of 1-25 vehicles or large fleets in the thousands. If you already have a fleet that’s coming to the end of its term, we can also help with the disposal or remarketing of the vehicles.
Maintenance management: Keeping your vehicles well-maintained will improve your fleet’s overall efficiency and effectiveness, helping reduce downtime and saving time and money for your business.
Our specialist vehicle management team will ensure that your maintenance standards are high, costs are controlled and administration tasks are completed to remain legally compliant.
This maintenance management solution is designed to provide you with a comprehensive backup for all of your fleets’ in-life services, maintenance and repair requirements.
Fleet funding often varies and depends on the business and type of finance required. Typically, it can take anywhere from a couple of weeks to months to get finance in place. Finance applicants for fleet funding should have all their accounts in order and available for inspection, just like with any other type of business funding. Bank statements, the last three to five years’ worth of certified accounts, business plans, and specifics on assets and liabilities can all be required.
MAF Finance Group can compare finance offerings from a wide panel of lenders to find the best option for you.

Asset refinancing is a way of raising capital against assets you hold on your balance sheet.
Asset-based lending (ABL) is a type of finance in which a business can use its assets, such as inventory and property to release working capital.
A finance lease is simply renting the asset over an agreed period of time and you usually remain responsible for the maintenance.
Invoice factoring is a form of invoice finance to release cash If you’re waiting for customers to pay for your services or products.
Invoice finance provides early access to the funds owed to you in unpaid invoices. If you find your business waiting for customers to pay for your services or products, you could use invoice finance as a way of getting paid sooner.
