Flexi Narrow Aisle is investing more than £1 million in its short term rental fleet, which now includes around 300 trucks.
The trucks can be hired from between one week and 12 months, during which the weekly rental cost includes full maintenance and service support.
“Short term rental is increasingly seen as an attractive way of quickly acquiring additional lift truck capacity by more and more companies, to support seasonal peaks and the increased business levels, said sales and marketing director at Flexi, John Maguire.
“It appeals to companies for various reasons but operational and budgetary flexibility are perhaps the biggest drivers.
“Companies can add short term rental trucks to their fleet to cover busy periods while finance directors can find short term contracts useful as the trucks do not always need to appear in the user company’s balance sheet.”
