Canter Club Launched at Lingfield Park

Stepping in to help, whatever the circumstances, has been the core message of Ryan Vehicles over the past 20 years.

Now, the team has launched a brand new club to look after the owners AND their cars.

The Ryan Canter Club (RCC) – in partnership with Lingfield Park Resort – is aimed at providing a bespoke concierge service, while the experts look after your vehicle needs.

Keith Murray, founder aIMG_0892nd director of Ryan Vehicles, explained: ‘As a company we have built our success on looking after our customers’ needs. Our whole philosophy is to take the pain out of running vehicles.

‘Now we are going to extend that by offering those who join the RCC, a whole range of added services. The money – and time – they save by using our services will allow them more opportunities to run their core business and enjoy themselves, which is why we are offering access to a number of added benefits, such as priority access to racing hospitality at Lingfield Park.’

For a monthly fee, members can access all the services offered by Ryan Vehicles, including full maintenance support, body repair work and a unique rent to buy scheme.

As a partner of Lingfield Park Resort – Ryan Vehicles provides the race-day cars necessary to carry officials such as the vet and the doctor around the track as the horses are racing – the company is keen to offer access to the racecourse as part of the RCC membership.

‘The RCC will hold events throughout the year allowing our members to benefit from our sponsorship arrangements,’ added Keith. ‘There will be opportunities to network with other members or host events of your own all in the time you will save from being a member.’

As well as the race days and sponsorship opportunities at Lingfield Park, members will be able to access other sporting venues and a box at London’s 02 Arena. They will receive an invite to Ryan’s annual charity golf day at Lingfield Park and receive discounted rates on minibus hire and a bespoke meet and greet service. Access to the Canter Club car will also be offered for those needing a replacement car during maintenance or bodywork being carried out on their own vehicle.

Andrew Perkins, Executive Director of Lingfield Park Resort, commented: ‘This is part of our on-going relationship with Ryan Vehicles, sponsors of our race day cars. We share their ethos of looking after our customers so would be delighted to welcome the RCC members here and see how we can further meet their needs across our multi-faceted leisure and hospitality site.’

#Q3: A Social Outlook For Ryan

At the turn of the year we at Ryan made a conscious push not only to grow the business but to build the ‘Brand’. We started the year in a positive mood fresh from the Christmas break and finished Q1 on a real high, turnover was up and the effort to spread the Ryan philosophy was a success. We ran a highly effective Road to Wembley competition which kept interest high and provided one lucky winner the chance of a VIP day out to watch the national team play at the home of football.

With so much effort going into this we all knew it would be hard to maintain momentum throughout Q2, especially with the expected quiet periods as people took their holidays and were gearing up towards the Euros (we won’t go there). But in typical Ryan fashion we got our heads down and tried to make life as easy as possible for our customers. Our focus and determination is paying off and it looks as though 2016 could be the most successful year yet, with turnover on course for a record high.

We also launched our Road to Lingfield Competition. It was a referral based campaign with the prize being a Grandstand Suite at Lingfield Racecourse overlooking the finish line. The competition came to fruition through our partnership with Lingfield which has grown from strength to strength since the start of the year. Lingfield had been let down by their car supplier and were in desperate need of vehicles immediately. We were able to supply the vehicles they needed in time for the start of the season and our relationship has been blossoming ever since.

Moving forward into Q3 we as a company are focusing heavily on the social media aspect of our business, with a new website up and running and an enthusiastic team developing our Facebook, Twitter and new Instagram pages. These outlets will have all of the latest updates, news, offers and upcoming events. The next date for your diary will be 23rd September; the Ryan Vehicles Charity Golf Day with all profits going to www.rockinghorse.org.uk a Brighton-based children’s charity. To join us on the day please head to our Golf Team Entry page and get signed up!
