Skoda cleans up as Molly Maid adds Fabia to fleet
Professional cleaning company Molly Maid has added 30 Skoda Fabias to its 370-strong fleet, and plans to increase the number further by replacing existing Nissan, Toyota and Vauxhall vehicles.
With a highly competitive BIK rate, low p11d value and competitive lease prices, the Fabia is a good value alternative to cars like the Hyundai i20 and Vauxhall Corsa.
It was the Fabia’s 330-litre boot that won over the cleaning firm though – it’s perfectly suited to the task of carrying bulky cleaning equipment.
Jonathan Holden, COO of Molly Maid said: ‘The ŠKODA Fabia fitted the bill completely for us, right down to the fundamentals of cost - not just for the business but our drivers - practicality and overall design.
“Image matters in this arena, and that was a huge consideration, as each car is required to be in the Molly Maid navy blue with our specially designed livery, to act as a roaming billboard for the company.”
The latest Fabia is available in a range of four trim levels, all of which come well-equipped with a touchscreen infotainment system, while its boot and passenger space are both above average for its class. Holden also said that Skoda offers a fleet service that previous manufacturers couldn’t.
He commented: “We need a rapid response from a dealer network to both supply and service vehicles to save on costly downtime and ŠKODA has proven time and time again to deliver on all fronts.”
Henry Williams, Head of Fleet at ŠKODA UK, added: “Molly Maid has a huge network of drivers across the UK who mainly drive in towns and cities, therefore the compact Fabia was the ideal choice. We look forward to building on our relationship with Molly Maid in the coming years.”
