The current, challenging new vehicle market has made fleet planning – especially for those working in the commercial vehicle sector – particularly difficult. With the picture unlikely to change much in 2023, the key is to find vehicle supply partners that can help fill gaps with ‘fit for purpose’ solutions.

Rental, whether for just a few days or for several months, provides a flexible answer to the commercial fleet supply challenge. It also helps businesses get through peaks in demand without having to make long-term financial commitments in uncertain times.

Winter ready

Delivering a range of commercial vehicle solutions, Europcar is helping businesses stay on the road with its specialist vehicle fleet, which includes ‘ready to rent’ Chapter 8 Tippers, vans and 4×4 pickups. With availability from 12 Vans & Trucks Supersites located at key points across the UK as well as from over 50 nationwide branches, Europcar has the right vehicles to address the specific challenges of the winter months ahead.

Another important factor for winter motoring, partnerships with Halfords and KwikFit mean Europcar vans on rent can be supported efficiently if they encounter any damage or maintenance issues. Access to 1,400+ FastFit locations for SMR requirements and UK wide coverage for windscreen replacements as well as a number of mobile repairers who can fix small SMR requirements provides a further level of peace of mind for fleet managers.

Interactive online tool puts commercial fleet managers in the driving seat 

Making vehicle selection as efficient as possible, the Europcar Vans & Trucks Guide gives fleet managers access to the latest models, including accurate dimensions and individual maximum load capacities to help find the right vehicle for the job.

The dynamic guide includes videos and interactive features. It also includes details on the wide range of customisation options available from Europcar’s Flex long-term rental services, including bespoke livery – from Chapter 8 to fully branded wrapping – as well as tow bars, racking and semi-cap options.

The Guide will be updated as new vehicles and services are added to the Europcar Vans & Trucks offering, ensuring the latest information is just a click away for any business.
