Overwhelmed By Vehicle Terminology?
Whether it’s a weekend hire to help you move some furniture or for long term business use; hiring a vehicle from Turner Hire Drive is always a smooth and simple process.
However, when viewing our vehicle guide it may be that you are struggling to understand some of the commercial vehicle terminology. This could lead to confusion when looking to hire the most appropriate vehicle for your needs.
Therefore, this guide to the common terms and phrases you will come across when hiring a vehicle will ensure you are able to select the best vehicle for your needs.
Is It Better To Hire Or Buy Commercial Vehicles?
When maintaining a fleet of commercial vehicles, it is crucially important to understand the most cost-effective methods in doing so.
In fact, a booming economy and a growing business is still not enough to make this an easy task. However, against the backdrop of Brexit, depreciating value of the pound and a shift to more short-term contracts in industries like construction, this challenge has become even harder.
However, there can be one certainty. Under the current political and economic environment, fleet managers are finding planning for the future much more difficult. This has led to many finance directors considering their decision of whether to hire or buy commercial vehicles.
How to Pick The Right Vehicles for Your Business
Picking the right vehicles is essential for many businesses. Whether you are a small or a large business, it is likely that your dependency on an efficient vehicle fleet is constantly increasing. However, the smaller your business is, the less likely you may be to have a designated transport or fleet manager. Therefore, the management of your fleet may become more complex and financially constraining.
Your Office On The Move
Light, bright and easy to drive, Transit sets the standard for vehicles in its class. With exceptional levels of finish and refinement, smart driver-oriented technology, plus a range of practical and thoughtful features – like a fold-down table that’s integrated into the dual front passenger’s seat and large enough to hold a laptop computer – it’s your office on the road.
Why Choose Car Hire For Business?
In recent times, buying cars for your fleet has become less and less financially viable. Such a decision places constraints on your capital and presents losses through depreciation. Additionally, it takes up time in dealing with maintenance and admin. The process is then repeated when another vehicle has been purchased.
