We have a diverse fleet of over 14,500 vehicles ranging from cars, standard and specialist LCVs and HGVs to golf buggies and ATVs.

We are an award winning company having won the award for Van/Truck Rental Company of the Year at the Commercial Fleet Van Awards 2015 and for Van Rental Company of the Year and Supplier of the Year at the Fleet Van Awards 2014.

We are proud to say we have the largest 4x4 rental fleet in Europe as well as the biggest hire fleet of HGV tippers and crane lorries in the UK. We operate out of 14 key locations nationwide with each one having fully operational workshop facilities to provide servicing, inspections, repairs, MOTs, and major breakdown work; six of which are equipped with a bodyshop and fabrication facility.

We supply to a variety of market sectors including local and central government, infrastructure services, highways, utilities, rail and facilities management. Through our diverse range of vehicles, and having the UK's largest buggy and ATV fleet, we are the event industry's ideal partner of choice. This service has been further enhanced through the introduction of GO-DRIVE providing fully trained buggy chauffeurs with the option of security trained personal.

Since purchasing GolfBuggyHire we now boast to having over 1,000 buggies and ATVs on our rental fleet.

We provide a one-stop-shop approach to vehicle management offering tailored, flexible solutions 24/7, 365 days a year.
