Why company fuel cards are good for your business
28 September 2017
1. National coverage
With Silvey’s fuel cards, you get national coverage accessing 6,500 sites across the UK. You can find the sites via phone apps and onsite finders and also through telephone and traditional directories. To see this is practice, check out our site finder now.
2. Fuel cost efficiency
With a fuel card, you are in control of where your drivers fill up, which can help to reduce your costs. A fixed weekly fuel price can be given in advance which can help your business plan and monitor fuel expenditure.
3. Reduce admin time and costs
With fuel cards, there is no longer any need to keep and process receipts saving you admin time and reducing your overall costs. Whoever manages this in your business will thank you for signing up for a fuel card (and just think of the other business tasks they'll be free to get on with!)
4. Fuel cards put you in control
As a business manager you can set the card limits, access transaction reports online and stop cards. You also have added security; unlike with credit cards, your drivers can only purchase fuel and a selection of relevant services.
5 Customer Service
Our business fuel cards come with excellent customer service support so that you can maximise the benefits of the card. This also gives you and your team valuable peace of mind.
6. Interest free
Unlike credit cards, fuel cards are interest free, which offers you a flexible payment solution. Fuel cards don’t have any hidden charges and there is no obligation to use it.
7. It’s not all about fuel
You can also use the fuel card to pay for other services such as AdBlue, overnight parking or road tolls including the M6 road toll, which again reduces the need to reimburse your drivers.
8. VAT compatible invoices
To make your life easier, our fuel cards come with itemised VAT compatible invoices with MPG.
9. Monitor and improve efficiency
With a company fuel card, you can access reports via excel or a pdf, which helps you see the bigger picture whether you’re an SME or have a large fleet. For instance, you could monitor filling patterns in order to ascertain if you can make savings.
10. A fuel card tailored to your business
