SUPERSITE: Hertz satisfy North East demand
Hertz are looking to satisfy growing fleet rental demand in the North East by opening a Van Supersite near Newcastle.
The 84,500sq/ft facility, based at Industrial Road, Washington, will offer a range of LCVs including Luton box vehicles, tippers, crew cabs and customised vehicles.
As with all Hertz Van Supersites, the Newcastle facility will support both bespoke and standard van rental requirements.
Customers will have access to commercial vehicle expertise, service and maintenance support, and repairs of both warranty and non-warranty vehicles.
The Supersite will also provide fleet management services that enable fleet managers to streamline vehicle usage, cut down pool fleet numbers, and reduce administration costs.
Michel Taride, Group President of Hertz International, said: “Van rental offers a compelling alternative to vehicle ownership.
“It reduces the financial commitment of purchasing, breakdown cover, insurance, and getting a fleet taxed and ready for the road.
“The trend for van fleet rentals instead of purchases is increasing, which has created a requirement for our van rental business to expand even further.”
Hertz have 21 Van Supersite locations across the country, with capacity to rent more than 1,000 vehicles.
They have been specifically built to meet the demands of fleet managers who operate large commercial fleets.
Neil Cunningham, General Manager of Hertz UK, said: “Hertz works with thousands of large and small van operators, from self-employed van drivers to large operators with 500+ van fleets.
“We are excited to be investing and expanding in the local area and also increasing the number of people we employee locally.”
