Vehicle Hire division fills the GAP
By Steve Ducker30 September 2015
GAP Hire Solutions is proving that offering eight specialist hire divisions benefits its customers. Its Plymouth depot, which specialises in the hire of plant, tools and lifting equipment, recently instigated the hire of a selection of vehicles from GAP’s Vehicle Hire division, offering customers a one-stop shop for their hire needs.
Glanville Environmental, a customer which already hires plant, tools and survey equipment from GAP, has recently won a lucrative contract with South West Water. It was looking to add new vehicles to its fleet to assist with delivery of the contract and general manager of Plymouth Plant & Tool Hire, Adam Williams, mentioned GAP’s Vehicle Hire division.
Glanville was impressed that it could hire brand new vehicles from its existing equipment hirer, making procedures simpler by having one point of contact for all its hire needs as well as a streamlined payment process.
Adam Williams commented: “We feel that one of our greatest advantages as a hire company is that we are able to offer our customers one point of contact for their hire needs. Glanville is already an esteemed customer at our depot in Plymouth and with the establishment of our new Vehicle Hire division we were able to offer additional products backed by the exceptional customer service that it was already used to receiving from GAP.”
Glanville has placed an initial order for nine vehicles and will look to increase this number once it understands its exact vehicle requirements. The vehicles were tailored to the customer’s exact specifications - GAP Vehicle Hire built a racking system, added chapter 8 livery, a hot and cold-water sink, tow bar and beacons.
This allowed Glanville to go to work with a fully equipped vehicle straight away.
GAP Vehicle Hire was set up in 2014 to offer the long-term hire of bespoke commercial vehicles.
