FleetEurope offers help for fleets looking to avoid seasonal LCV shortage

In the run-up to Christmas, increased consumer spend, online retail and new festive events like Black Friday and Cyber Monday places increased pressure on delivery and logistics companies, which then use up a significant amount of LCVs available on the rental market.

In response, FleetEurope is offering access to its national network of leasing and rental suppliers, which means that customers can access any of their rental partners, located throughout the UK.

The firm added that universal access through a single account saves time, whilst a single-rate card assures customers that are renting vehicles are at a favourable rate, which is only available through the buying power of FleetEurope.

This offer is open to all customers, with new accounts able to be set up almost instantly and offering access to the network immediately after. Once the account is active, a customer needs only make one call or online booking, with FleetEurope doing all the work to locate the right vehicle at a local outlet.

Where vehicles are unavailable, alternative suppliers are contacted or vehicles can even be moved from one location to another to meet demand.

Carlos Montero, FleetEurope’s commercial director, said: “We are in the busiest time of year on the high street and our roads. Demand is notoriously high and FleetEurope is here to help those who need a vehicle during this time to keep their businesses running and keep up with demand.

“Whereas some operators face a lack of availability or inflated costs, our nationwide network and agreed rate card enables our customers to access vehicles when they need them most.”
