The Plumbers’ Club helps to drive down price
Published: 25 April, 2014
The Plumbers’ Club, a new loyalty scheme from Graham The Plumbers’ Merchant, offers a variety of benefits to members – including special rates for commercial vehicle leasing.
Using The Plumbers’ Club, rather than another leasing company or tying up your capital buying a commercial vehicle outright, members can take advantage of the great discounts and other incentives on offer.
The first member to reap the benefits of leasing deals available through The Plumbers’ Club is Stuart Cleave, a plumbing and heating engineer from Bristol, who leased a Vauxhall Vivaro Sportive. Having looked at a variety of leasing companies, Mr Cleave chose The Plumbers’ Club because of the savings and incentives on offer.
Explaining why he chose The Plumbers’ Club and how it has helped, Mr Cleave said: “I have long been a customer of Graham - their loyalty schemes have always offered great benefits and The Plumbers’ Club is no exception. I looked around at other vehicle leasing companies, but the deal I received through The Plumbers’ Club with Compass Contract Hire was the best value for money by far. I have also been more than impressed with the service that was provided. The helpful guidance has been an additional bonus and has helped to make the whole process easy and efficient.”
Leasing a vehicle – as opposed to buying one – allowed Mr Cleave to acquire a higher specification of vehicle, without the up front expenditure. Deciding on a five-year plan with a maintenance option, all of Mr Cleave’s costs are covered in a single, monthly payment. This gives him the benefit of being able to precisely budget his motoring costs over the next five years, knowing that this cost won’t change. With the maintenance option, all service is covered, including; unlimited tyre, battery and exhaust replacement, road tax for the duration, all scheduled and unscheduled servicing and a collection and delivery service.
In addition to great rates for vehicle leasing – members of The Plumbers’ Club can benefit from a whole host of benefits and rewards which are tailored towards them. These benefits include PayPal Here, offering customers the ability to take instant payment, be it credit card or debit card, a customer can even pay using their PayPal account. You can also send an instant receipt to the customer rather than waiting until you get home, receiving payment into your account within two hours. Other commercial offers include, special subscription rates with CIPHE, discounted line rentals with O2 and discounts on MCS renewable membership. Members will also be able to use The Plumbers’ Club branded Love2Shop membership card, which is accepted in thousands of stores nationwide and rewards them with a 7% discount.
Customers are also able to use their Plumbers’ Coins to purchase experiences from paintballing and tea at the Ritz to trips to New York.
Commenting on The Plumbers’ Club and it’s offers for members, Debbie-Sue Price, responsible for customer programmes at Graham, said: “It’s fantastic that Stuart found it so beneficial to lease his latest vehicle through The Plumbers’ Club – providing added value to our customers is at our core. With exclusive benefits for both the business and the individual, The Plumbers’ Club is unique in that it rewards loyal customers based on what they have told us they want. Our offers are available online, with exclusive offers that are only available for a limited period of time, so it’s important for members to check regularly to make sure they don’t miss out.”
