Mobil: Fuelling NZ’s Small Businesses

Small business is the driving force of NZ’s economy. And the driving force behind small business transport is petrol and diesel!

Whether you’re a sole trader with one set of wheels, or part of a small business with a number of vehicles, if you need to travel for your work, fuel is a major expense.

While there’s not a lot of choice when it comes to fuel options, there’s plenty of choice between different fuel card operators.

So as part of our mission to inform consumers of the best NZ has to offer, Canstar Blue canvassed the opinions of 199 New Zealanders who had used a fuel card for business purposes in the past 12 months, across a range of categories, to measure and track their satisfaction.

To decide which fuel card provider offers the best level of customer satisfaction, each was rated across the following categories:

  • Account Management
  • Customer Service
  • Fees and Charges
  • Fuel Discounts
  • Number of Petrol Stations Available

Coming out on top is Mobil. The popular fuel card earns our top 5-Star Overall Satisfaction rating in this year’s award. It’s a result based on a strong performance of 5- and 4-Star ratings across all categories.

What Customers Want

It’s interesting to note that while discounts are important for fuel card users, rating as the most important factor for 25% of those in our survey, just over a quarter (26%) say that great Customer Service was the major driver of their overall satisfaction:
