MC Group, the Volvo Trucks and Isuzu Truck UK dealership, has opened a rental service from three of its depots across the South of England.
MC Rental operates 1,300 vehicles from Maidstone, Southampton and Thurrock. Dean Tizard, the newly appointed rental sales executive for MC Rental, said the company has been busy as companies see an increase in business on the back of a welcome upturn in the economy. "From hauliers and caterers to logistics and event management, we've been booking in vehicles for spot, weekly, monthly, longer-term and contract hire," he said. "Our rental service is meeting the changing needs of customers as operating environments shift, saving
them money as they may not be in a position at this stage to afford the costs of leasing or buying trucks."
MC Rental has invested more than £12m in vehicles, which includes putting 100 new Volvo FH's on the fleet. Group sales director Dave Hutchins says: "With the uncertainty that has plagued the economy for the last few years, many businesses have not been in a position to make long-term commitments."
The new additions are 6x2s with 500hp engines and Globetrotter XL cabs.
MC Rental is part of MC Group, which also comprises MC Truck & Bus, offering CV servicing, repairs and maintenance. The Group, established in 1976, also sells Volvo and Isuzu Trucks and has eight depots across the South.
