Rental Could Be The Way Forward For Business Vehicle Solutions
Avoid the issues of running older vehicles in your Business
Westwood Motor Group is urging businesses to consider van hire as a “cost-effective, flexible, and most importantly, safe alternative to running a fleet of older vans”. The call comes following recent data from the Freight Transport Association (FTA) showed that there was an almost 50 per cent failure rate on first time MOTs for vans.
Westwood Motor Group believes the statistic demonstrates it is not always best for a business to run its own fleet of vans. As the industry changes, van rental can offer a solution which not only provides newer vans for use, but is also more flexible for a changing market.
Kate Close, General Manager at Westwood Motor Group, explains: “These figures from the FTA go to illustrate something that has been known within the industry for a long time – businesses are holding onto vans for longer, without having them properly maintained. This is a false economy for businesses at a time when costs are all important – as eventually the vans will either breakdown or fail their MOT.
“Rental provides the answer. Vans that are on average under nine months old and maintained to the highest standard are available at short notice, providing a flexible fleet of vehicles for usage which can actually save businesses money.”
Westwood Motor Group has recently undertaken a rapid expansion in its van network and portfolio of vehicles.
Kate explains, that one of of our best products is Westwood Options, simply as there are so many new start business, this product puts our customers in a fully maintained vehicle with no other maintenance required, the flexibility of Westwood options puts many new start business’s in vehicles without the need of a longer term agreements, this is paramount to most company’s starting of in business.
