Burnt Tree has secured an 18 vehicle long-term rental deal with local company Kestrel Guards, following the opening of its Southampton branch.
The three-year deal covers a complete fleet replacement programme for Kestrel Guards and includes the supply of 15 Ford Fiesta and 3 Peugeot Partner vans. These have now all gone into service with the Southampton-based company, providing mobile patrol, key holding and alarm response services to customers across the South and South West of England, from West Sussex right across to Cornwall.
James Matthews, director at Kestrel Guards said, “During the negotiations, Burnt Tree provided us with a tailored solution to our fleet requirements, including essential support out of hours. This is key for us as the majority of our security work is done during the night, so we needed full reassurance that they would be able to support us at all times of the day and night.”
The majority of the vehicles are now based out of Kestrel’s head office in Southampton, although there will be three of the 18 strong vehicle fleet based at the company’s branch in Redruth, Cornwall.
“Another significant advantage of working with Burnt Tree has been their flexibility to our requirements whenever we have been in need of additional short-term vehicles to supplement our fleet and this has really impressed us,” added Matthews.
