The vehicle sourcing and finance experts: TysonCooper

Our trusted provider, TysonCooper, are an established vehicle sourcing, financing and management company, and the friendly team there is primed and ready to help you find and acquire your next vehicle. Rather than being tied to a single marque, the company has terms with a wide range of manufacturers – so can offer you a broader choice of vehicles and more impartial advice than a traditional dealership.

Savings of up to 35% on cars and 43% on commercial vehicles are made possible through the company’s buying power, which enables RIBA members to buy or lease new vehicles at the sort of prices usually only accessible to those running large fleets.

Additionally, with a broad knowledge of the market and a finger on the pulse of motor industry innovation, TysonCooper is well-placed to help you make the right choice of make and model, engine and options. In particular, they can help with useful and up-to-date information on newly available fuel options including battery electric, plug-in hybrid and standard hybrid – so you can decide whether this new technology is right for you now, or whether petrol or diesel would still offer you best value at the current time.

Get up close and personal by reading this interview by Chris Harbutt, sales director at Tyson Cooper. Harbutt sheds light on Tyson Cooper's consultative and solution-oriented approaching to sourcing vehicles for their clients. 

Tailored to your needs for best value

The Programme is split into two schemes, BusinessDrive, for fleets and company car drivers (including cash allowance and opt-out), and MyDrive, for owner drivers.

You can buy outright, or choose from finance products appropriate to your needs and circumstances, including Personal Contract Purchase, Personal Contract Hire, Hire Purchase, Personal Lease, Business Contract Hire, Finance Lease and Lease Purchase. There are pros and cons to each option, of course – including balance sheet and tax implications for business customers – so TysonCooper works with you closely to make sure that you get maximum benefit from your choice. If you prefer, you also have the option to arrange your own finance.
