Our fleet is expanding
We have taken delivery of eight new MG SUVs and two new 7-seater Dacia Joggers since our last update.
We’re awaiting the arrival of six new, smaller MG SUVs and two MG3s.
However, due to a combination of supply chain issues for customers trying to get parts for their vehicle repairs our rental waiting bookings are now full and we have a waiting list.
It is still worth putting your name on the list if you would like to rent a vehicle over the Christmas period, however.
Do keep in touch!
Book early for Christmas and new vehicles
We are advising people to book now if they are going to need to rent a car during Christmas.
There are very few spaces left so please let us know as soon as possible.
Meanwhile our search for replacement vehicles goes on.
We have recently taken delivery of two new seven-seater people carriers made by Dacia and three Maxus drop-sided vans.
Given the delays in deliveries of replacement vehicles we are actively seeking alternative manufacturers who can deliver on time.
In the last few weeks four of our vehicles have been stolen, one of them our own recovery vehicle.
One, a brand new car, was found written off a short time later. We also lost a Transit tipper and a minibus.
As times get harder vehicle theft is likely to increase so we would ask all of you as rental customers to be security aware.
Please think about where you are parking your rented vehicle at night and ensure it is somewhere safe and well lit.
Please also be careful where you are putting the keys.
The same applies to car owners and their own vehicles.
We are ordering a wider range of cars
Some of the orders for new cars that we told you about last month have been cancelled by their manufacturers.
They say that they are unable to source the parts they need to make some models.
So we are ordering a wider range of makes and models to ensure we cans supply or fleet and private rental customer order s.
In the meantime, as demand for rentals remains high please allow at least two weeks when ordering your rental – and more if you can manage it.
We will do our best to make sure you can get what you need when you need it.
