Section II: Object
Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council operates a fleet of 48 vehicles across a range of vehicle types/specifications e.g. small vans, standard saloons/people carriers and special needs minibuses to larger tanker services and street lighting vehicles. The Council wishes to explore a number of options regarding the replacement of all of the vehicles as they reach the termination date of the current lease hire arrangements.
The Council will be looking to tenderers to use their market expertise and product knowledge to advise on the most economic and operationally advantageous means by which vehicles can be replaced. This will include advice on options for maintenance arrangements including breakdown and recovery of vehicles, windscreen, glass and tyre replacement arrangements, etc.
In particular, the Council has a vision to eliminate or minimise air pollution and accordingly is interested in exploring all possible environmentally friendly vehicle options as part of this tender exercise and will be looking to forge a partnership with the successful tenderer to receive on-going advice and support in this matter.
