Lockdown easing and high demand for vehicles


Lockdown Easing and High Demand for Vehicles

While the demand for vans has eased off slightly, demand for cars has rocketed thanks to the partial easing of lock-down restrictions this month.

At last people are able to visit loved ones who live at a distance, but they cannot stay overnight. However, this may make using public transport an unrealistic option.

Similarly, people can now get away to self-catering accommodation.

Consequently, as many of our cars are already rented out to local authorities and businesses we have a limited supply for private rental.

We will do everything we can to accommodate you but we ask that you please give us at least a week’s notice ahead of the date when you need a car.

Please remember we are still sticking to all the Covid-19 safety requirements, such as limiting numbers in our offices, providing hand sanitisers to visitors and ensuring all our vehicles are thoroughly sanitised between rentals.

We’re expanding!


We’re expanding!

No, we haven’t been eating too many Easter Eggs, we’re delighted to report that we’ve won two new and very large commercial contracts, both due to start in May.

One of these contracts will mean that vehicles will need to be delivered, mostly to locations in Norfolk and Suffolk but also to Kent.

We’ll be acting as sub-contractors for two large vehicle supply companies, Nexus and Assured Vehicle Rental.

So not only are we expanding our fleet and have bought some new KIA CEED 1.6 estate cars, which can be used for multiple purposes, but we’ve also taken on an extra person in the office to cope with the extra admin. 

In addition, we’ve taken on five casual drivers and we are looking to recruit more, so if you or anyone you know can help please do get in touch.

Please also get in touch if you’re a mechanic looking for a new position.  We service and maintain all our cars on site, so we employ our own mechanics and as the business expands we need more.

We’re sometimes asked whether private rental customers can specify the size and type of car they want.  The answer is yes you can.

The vast majority of people rent when their own car is at the garage being fixed and these tend to be the smaller vehicles of the Fiesta and Peugeot type.  However, if we don’t have one available when you need it we may have to supply something a bit bigger. There’s no additional charge for this so there’s no need to worry.

If demand increases as we expect we will also be looking to add to our stock of private rental cars over the coming months.

That’s it for this month – and it’s all good news!
