THE car subscription business, Mycardirect, is planning to expand its broker footprint with an additional two leasing brokers added to its pilot programme.
There are now five brokers trialling the broker subscription portal, before it launches fully next year.
The development of the broker portal comes as Mycardirect reports profitability after just 18 months of operation and ahead of schedule, says Duncan.
Part of the AAM Group, along with Onwrd and its own broker BestCarFInder, Mycardirect helped total sales increase by 46% to £23m in the 12 months to June 2022.
Duncan said subscription’s success was down to a combination of factors:
AAM Group chairman, David Murray-Hundley, added that the company was considering opportunities for a round of funding to help it expand its operations, which included the US, but additional funds weren’t a requirement.
“Our focus next is organic growth, digitisation and the customer experience across our three brands,” he added
David added the Group had a 3000 vehicle fleet, which was 65% focused on the corporate sector.
