Should we lease or buy

Transport Asset Management (TAM)

Riders TAM model is our gold standard fleet management. Our most financially efficient model, partners work with Riders to choose the best vehicles for their project and then lease them from us for a fixed, not for profit, cost on a monthly or yearly basis.

Because in a TAM programme vehicles are owned by Riders and are leased to healthcare organisations this gives us full control over expert procurement of the correct vehicles for the job to ensure effective and efficient use. TRM includes

  • Sourcing and provision of appropriate vehicles. These could be motorcycles, ambulances, all-terrain vehicles or more. 
  • Provision of drivers or riders  (where medical skills not required)
  • Initial and ongoing rider or driver training
  • Ongoing preventative maintenance
  • Parts replacement
  • Protective clothing 
  • Access to reliable source of fuel
  • Vehicle monitoring and reporting
