The MINI Business Partnership Programme (BPP) is designed especially for fleets of 50 cars or fewer. The scheme is available for Sole Traders, Partnerships and Limited Companies, so you might be eligible even if you haven’t considered a business contract hire vehicle before, with the added benefit of heavily reduced monthly rentals compared to a personal contract hire.

Bowker MINI Preston understands the importance of the MINI BPP programme and as a result their dedicated Local Business Development Manager Natalie Middlemas is always on hand to guide you through the experience. Natalie understands that choosing a new car for your business could be stressful, time consuming and daunting but Natalie aims to make choosing a MINI none of those things.

You can start by discussing your eligibility, Natalie said “sole traders and partnerships are often unaware that they qualify for the scheme, so this could come as a pleasant surprise, as long as you have two years worth of books. The monthly rental price is the same whether you have 1 car or 49 cars, so there is no disadvantage to being a small business.”  Natalie will fit around your busy schedule and come and visit you at your place of work to discuss your initial requirements then 48 hour test drives are available for all MINI models, to guarantee the MINI you choose suits your business needs. Whether you choose the MINI 3-Door Hatch, 5-Door Hatch, Clubman, Countryman or Convertible, MINI go-kart handling comes as standard!

With MINI it’s all about the drive but low running costs make them the ideal business partner, too. For instance, the intelligent MINI Cooper D 3-door Hatch achieves an impressive fuel consumption of 80.7mpg (combined).

Once you have decided which MINI is for you Natalie will find the right car for you and quickly. With access to national new stock or the option to order your new MINI from the factory (waiting times apply) rest assured the car will fit your business needs perfectly. A company car can also be a valuable marketing tool with the help of livery stickers. Bowker MINI have the facility to produce and print livery for your company car before collection so you are ready to hit the road in your branded car.

On collection you will receive a full dealership handover experience, MINI Geniuses are on-hand to impress you with the standard technology available (sat-nav is standard in the MINI Clubman) and the level of customer service you would expect from Bowker continues throughout the lifetime of your lease.

Natalie concluded “I love the MINI brand and nothing is more satisfying and exciting than knowing you have exceeded somebody’s expectations and found them the perfect car for less than they thought! To discuss how we can start your MINI adventure please give me a call”
