Enterprise adds construction trucks to rental fleet

Enterprise

Growth in the construction sector for specialist vehicles has led Enterprise Flex-E-Rent to add three new types of truck to its hire fleet.

The rental provider will now have 32-tonne tippers, hook loaders and tipper grabs available for hire at its sites across the country. It is the first time vehicles of this size have been on Enterprise’s hire fleet, and will be available on flexible and short-term daily rentals.

The specification of the units has been carefully matched to suit companies working in building, infrastructure and highways.

Danny Glynn, managing director of Enterprise Flex-E-Rent, said: “Construction companies want to add vehicles to their fleets with greater flexibility, especially due to the considerable ongoing level of economic uncertainty.

“Flexible and short-term rental enables businesses to access the specialist vehicles they need for specific projects without having to commit additional capital investment. We’ve been providing commercial vehicles to the construction sector for years and have identified that certain van, HGV and equipment specifications are requested by customers over and over again. Adding these three construction-spec truck lines to our standard HGV fleet means businesses can get the core transport they need for a specific length of time, without any penalties.”

The 32-tonne tippers are equipped with a cab-operated electric sheeting system, Edbro tipper gear and have a 5mm Hardox floor with manual opening tailgates.

The hook loaders also get an electric sheeting system, and have a 22,000kg lifting capacity with a 7m body. The tipper grabs use a Palfinger Epsilon M125 Classic crane with dual controls, 5-litre bucket and Edbro tipper gear.

In addition to the new rental options, Enterprise has also just opened a new location in Luton between the M1 and A6, to serve its commercial vehicle customers.
