Europcar opens dedicated van supersite in Cardiff

A new dedicated Europcar van supersite is now open in Cardiff, offering an extensive fleet of commercial vehicles.

Europcar’s new Cardiff Van Supersite will provide a more local, on-the-doorstep service for urgent bookings from businesses in South Wales as well as reduce the delivery & collection miles driven

The site has been opened ahead of the easing of lockdown measures by the Welsh government; data suggests there is a boom of entrepreneurs setting up their own businesses and the new centre will respond to resultant demand for vans and other specialist vehicles.

Located two miles from Cardiff city centre, the site is able to offer standard short and long wheelbase vans in as little as four hours after booking. For businesses looking for bespoke specialist vehicles there is a range of optional features on offer such as full livery, built-in racking, tow bars and beacons. Chapter Eight vehicles are also ready and waiting for businesses that operate on the roads or railways.

The new centre is the latest in a chain of 12 Van Supersites across the UK.

Stuart Russell, LCV sales director at Europcar Vans & Trucks, commented: “Where we had historically serviced demand from South Wales through our Bristol operation, our geographical heat map based on the number of deliveries over the past 12 months, told us that we needed to focus on providing a strong local centre in Wales.

“The new Cardiff Van Supersite will therefore address several key issues. We can provide a more local, on-the-doorstep service for urgent bookings from businesses in South Wales as well as reduce the delivery & collection miles driven, which in turn reduces our customers’ fuel costs. We will also be strengthening our Welsh supply chain for vehicle repairs to improve our vehicle down time management in the region. Welsh repairs will be done in Wales providing another important boost for local businesses.”
