At Autohorn Fleet Services we’re proud to call ourselves a Yorkshire born and bred team with customer service at the heart of everything we do.
The company was born in 1995 and since then we have grown to offer a multitude of different bespoke fleet solutions for businesses and individuals. Back in the 90s we had a modest five employees and just nine cars – today we’re proud to offer an eclectic team of more than 60 professionals and a fleet of more than 2,000 cars to choose from.
Autohorn Fleet Services was the brainchild of Frances and Richard Baines, who began their venture with a daily rental service at the company’s offices in Queen Street, York. Today, the same offices host the Europcar franchise, just one of Autohorn Fleet Services’ many different fleet solutions.
In 1999, the team welcomed Lee Underwood, who has risen up through the ranks from a salesman to managing director, a position he has held since 2004. In a bid to extend our range of services even further, Autohorn Fleet Services branched out into leasing in 2009 when we acquired 1stCarLeasing.com from Laura Walker, who remains with us to this day.
Today we own and operate a vast selection of fleet services from short and long term vehicle leasing to driver training, fuel management and much more. We are proud to invest in local communities to help them run their businesses more efficiently, and regularly take part in sponsorship opportunities with local organisations in and around York. We’re also hugely proud of our award-winning social responsibility record and regularly work with companies to help them run more fuel-efficient vehicles and reduce their CO2 emissions.
