Company Overview

Green Motion was established in 2007 in reaction to the global environmental need to reduce CO2 emissions, enabling customers from leisure, retail and business to rent an environmentally friendly vehicle but still get from A to B with the added bonus of better fuel economy. Operations commenced within the UK and enjoyed excellent growth, becoming a top 10 rental operation within the UK and Northern Ireland. Green Motion’s presence has continued to grow and are now present in 26 countries.

Franchise Overview

The first Green Motion UK franchise to open for business was Leicester in 2007. Now spanning the UK with 15 locations, the next franchise is due to open in autumn 2016. As the only fully franchised vehicle rental company in the UK, opportunities available are very exciting indeed. Green Motion is already established as a market leader in the supply of environmentally friendly vehicle rental and our business model is simple. We, as the UK franchisor, have a system that delivers the product, services and management that enables dynamic and entrepreneurial business professionals to flourish. Each element of the system is focused on providing the necessary training and on-going support and advice, allowing the franchisee the time to concentrate on the development of their local market.

Training

Training is at the forefront of Green Motion’s franchise system. Franchisees enjoy a full range of training services that have been developed to meet the varying requirements of today’s business market. A full week of comprehensive training is provided, including practical onsite experience that covers all aspects of retail management and sales principles in conjunction with hands on experience. Ongoing on and off site support is a pivotal element of the franchisor/franchisee relationship.

Daily Life of a Franchisee

Rarely in a Vehicle rental franchise is one day the same as another and a typical day can vary depending on the structure that a franchisee chooses for his/her business. Many franchisees take a hands on approach, getting their hands dirty with a smaller number of staff, working directly at the coal face. Many other franchisees choose to structure their business in such a way that they are steering the people at the coalface but working to their own management and strategic strengths. Either way, a new franchisee would need to spend time at the sharp end to see what the nature of the business and to understand what is required of the employees.
