Commenting on the fleet expansion programme, Prohire's sales director Andrew Morley, said: “During the autumn we made another significant investment in rental vehicles to enhance our support capability for new and existing customers alike. From 3.5 tonne panel vans and 7.5 – 26 tonne rigids to 44-tonne tractor units, the common thread has been specification enhancement.
“We completely understand the issues facing the industry and the vehicle specifications we’ve stipulated, across the board, mean that when renting from Prohire customers have access to rental vehicles that drivers really want to use.”
The latest vehicles ordered for Prohire’s rental fleet include 3.5 tonne Citroen ‘Enterprise’ panel vans. The new vehicles include air conditioning, rear parking sensors, cruise control with variable speed limiter and satellite navigation with a 5” colour touchscreen.
Investments have also been made at the heavier end of the range, including Mercedes Actros tractor units fitted with BigSpace cabs.
