CCTV ENGINEERS HAPPY TO GET INTO FOCUS
 
 
 
BRENTWOOD, January 18, 2006 – "One of our best decisions" is how the Managing Director of John Moore Security sums up the arrival of 30 Ford Focus estate cars on its fleet.
 
Used by the company's installation and service engineers, the Fords are already reported to be saving 40 per cent on fuel bills. And MD John Moore has been using a Focus occasionally for his 50-mile round trip to work - and finding it as quiet to drive as his own executive car!
 
Hull-based John Moore Security Ltd supplies a full range of electronic security systems to businesses in the Yorkshire and Humberside regions, including intruder and fire alarms, CCTV and access control installations.
 
Its new Ford Focus LX 1.6 TDCi estate cars are fitted with roof bars for carrying ladders, and finished in black with the company's distinctive new livery. The estate load space is required by the engineers for carrying sometimes bulky equipment and tools.
 
The Ford models, which replace Chrysler PT Cruisers, now make up the bulk of the John Moore fleet and are expected to cover up to 75,000 miles within their three-year contract-hire replacement period.
 
They were supplied over a short period by Automotive Finance & Leasing Ltd of Harrogate, which prides itself on offering a professional and personal service.
 
 

 
"John Moore's choice of Ford Focus diesels was based mainly on economics," says AFL director Martin Buck. "Fuel economy and cost of ownership were prime considerations and, of course, Ford is a trusted brand."
 
The company considered three brands in reviewing its fleet. "The Focus came out better on all counts, but fuel economy was a major factor," says John Moore. "We're already seeing a 40 per cent reduction in the fuel bills for our engineers, with people who were filling up three times a week saying they're only having to refuel twice or even once a week now."
 
Mr Moore commutes from Hull to Doncaster and back most days, normally driving his own executive car. "We have a spare Focus at the moment and I have no hang-ups about driving it to work. I've found it pretty good, comfortable and believe it or not, you can't tell the difference in internal noise between the Focus and my own car!
 
"All the comments from our drivers have been good," adds Mr Moore. "As well as the fuel economy, they say they find the Focus comfortable, quiet and well fitted-out. They also appreciate having a lot more space for their equipment than before. It's always difficult to please everybody, but on this occasion it looks as if we have.
 
"Martin at Automotive Finance & Leasing has worked his socks off and has done very well for us, but I would expect that from him," says Mr Moore. "Overall, I would say that going with Focus has been one of our best decisions!"
