Why is independence important?

MFS have been working with New Zealand Businesses and Government agencies for over 15 years. We are experts in the field of vehicle fleet consultancy and are of the belief we are the only truly independent fleet consultancy in the country that has the expertise and experience that we have. We have no affiliation to any one manufacturer, lease or finance company and our pricing structure is transparent and robust. We have worked diligently over the past 15 years to build this independence and we protect it fiercely.

As we are a dedicated Independent Fleet Consultancy we have no underlying motives to structure fleet reports to generate additional business for our company. We set the scope of work, price according to that scope and carry out the work with the client’s best interest in mind. Our clients can have peace of mind that our fleet review process is transparent, robust, uninfluenced and truly independent due to the fact we do not sell fleet management services, we work will all manufacturers, finance and lease companies, we do not sell GPS products and we do not align to any one fuel company. Our company policy is to accept absolutely no brokerage fees or inducements. Our income is derived from the client only. We have found this to be the only way to maintain total independence.
