MC Rental has added more than 100 new vehicles to its truck range with the hope of expanding its short-term rentals for customers in the municipal and construction industries.

The vehicles are a mixture of skips, hook-loaders, beavertails, tippers, tipper grabs and builders merchant vehicles from Scania, Mercedes-Benz, Volvo and DAF. They will be followed up with an additional order for more than 100 new units in the first six months of 2019.

Sales director Dave Hutchins said: “MC Rental’s proven expertise in supplying municipal and construction vehicles to customers through our long-term contract hire fleet has enabled us to expand our short-term rental fleet with an optimum range of similar vehicles.

“This investment in new chassis types has enabled us to supply this unique and complex market place with a range of specialised high-specification trucks that meet our customer’s short-term operational requirements.” 

“By offering a diverse range of municipal and construction vehicles on short-term rental, we believe this is a unique proposition for customers who have previously found it difficult to source such vehicles on a short-term basis.”

MC Rental has added tippers, beavertails, grab, hook and skip-loaders to its fleet this year, as well as waste specification tractor units and crane-mounted rigids. It operates more than 3,000 vehicles from 4x4s and vans, through to artics.

“MC Rental has expanded rapidly and over the past few years we have experienced an increase in demand for a wider range of trucks. The move to diversify into offering trucks for short-term hire for the building and construction industries for example has paid dividends as we have widened our customer base as a result.

“While we have had these types of trucks on our long-term hire fleet for a while, we have not had them available for our short-term hire fleet before,” said Hutchins.
