Are you planning to switch to an Electric Fleet?
It can be a daunting decision to move your business to running an electric fleet. It is therefore important to know the advantages and disadvantages of electric vehicles.

What are the charging options?
When it comes to EV charging, there are a number of factors to consider. Can you charge your EV at home? Do you have off street parking? Or perhaps you are interested in government grants for electric charging points. At Toomey Leasing Group we can help you find the best option for you and your business.
Charging at work
It may be more practical for you to charge your EV at work, or you may be looking to provide a charging solution for your electric fleet. The Workplace Charging Scheme provides support for eligible business to install electric charging points at their place of work. Speak with our team and we can help you through the process.
Charging at home
There are two options for charging your electric vehicle at home. Firstly, you can charge using a mains socket. While it is a great way to start, it could take up to 24 hours to charge your EV to 100%, depending on your vehicle.
The second option you have, is to install a dedicated charging box from a company like Hive or PodPoint. This will allow you to charge much faster, and you may be able to monitor the spending through an app.
Charging on the go
Charging your EV on the road has never been easier. There are over 40,000 public charging points in the UK, with more being added every day. Apps like ZAPMAP help you to plan your route and locate charging point. They even tell you the price and estimated charging time before you get there.
