Prohire invest in new fleet

Jul 23, 2014
One of the UK’s fastest growing commercial vehicle hire and fleet management specialists, Prohire Plc, has announced an investment approaching £1 million in its ‘spot rental’ fleet.


This is the second significant investment Midlands-based Prohire has made in its ‘spot rental’ fleet in a matter of months and follows February’s news that the company had spent in excess of £2.5 million on new vehicles.


As part of this most recent investment Prohire has placed orders for around 35 vehicles, including: 7.5t Iveco Eurocargo trucks; 18t and 26t DAF Curtainsiders; Mercedes Axor tractor units; and 3.5t Mercedes Sprinter vans with refrigerated bodies.


“’Spot rental’ has become an increasingly significant part of our business,” said Dan Stevenson, Prohire’s Rentals Manager. Dan believes that the growing demand for ‘spot rental’ vehicles reflects the fact that some companies are treating news of the upturn in economic conditions with a degree of caution.


He commented: “Business is improving and companies are beginning to feel that they are coming out of recession, but in a lot of there is a reluctance to overstretch by buying, for example, a new £70,000 tractor unit to service a new contract. So rental options are particularly attractive.”


Prohire now has close to 300 vehicles ranging from car derived vans to 44-tonne tractor units in its ‘spot rental’ fleet and vehicles can be rented for any amount of time – from one day to seven years!
