CBVC Vehicle Management maximises fleet uptime for Chasetown Civil Engineering

Chasetown Civil Engineering is running a significantly more efficient fleet thanks to a bespoke solution from CBVC Vehicle Management, the Staffordshire-based fleet management company.

Chasetown Civil Engineering is a family run business, also based in Staffordshire, which operates across the Midlands and Northwest. The business specialises in infrastructure, groundworks and related building services. It employs almost 500 people with a fleet of mainly light commercial vehicles.

CBVC began managing Chasetown’s fleet in 2020 and the two businesses quickly developed a strong partnership to manage the difficulties presented by the pandemic. CBVC worked with Chasetown to understand the business challenges and implemented a comprehensive fleet management solution, with a particular focus on service maintenance and repair (SMR).

Euan Grant, Managing Director of Chasetown, explains the impact of introducing fleet management:

‘Prior to working with CBVC, we managed all the service, maintenance and repair requirements ourselves. We would be going out across our sites, swapping vehicles and losing significant man hours to travel – we were also maintaining a fleet of temporary replacement vehicles and managing all the admin.  

CBVC has implemented an excellent fleet solution for us and taken away the burden of fleet management. The SMR solution in particular means that we now have a much more efficient fleet.’

A bespoke SMR solution was created to minimise driver travel time and streamline the process. CBVC set up access to a network of dealers and independents, located close to each Chasetown customer site, and agreed discounted labour and parts rates. Driver liaison, booking and verified authorisation is managed by the CBVC team which then supplies monthly consolidated billing to Chasetown.

Mike Manners, Managing Director of CBVC Vehicle Management, commented:

‘We’re really proud of our bespoke solution for Chasetown and the improvement we’ve made to the fleet’s efficiency. Our focus is on building long term customer relationships and it’s a real testament to the work of the team that we’re entering our fourth year working with Chasetown. The next phase is to support Chasetown on its sustainability journey, so we’re currently working with the team on an electric van trial.

CBVC Vehicle Management also has a separate contract with Chasetown’s holding company, Tara Group, and manages its grey fleet – including licence checking for its subsidiaries Cameron Homes and Keon Homes.
