Fraikin has delivered 24 new vans into operation with national pest management experts, JG Pest Control, on a three-year full service contract hire agreement.
The deal marks new business for Fraikin, and represents an expansion of JG Pest Control’s commercial vehicle fleet to support continued business growth.
Iver-based JG Pest Control currently operates 70 commercial vehicles spread across much of England, including a mix of both owned and leased assets.
The new Fraikin-supplied vans – which comprise 10 Renault Kangoos and 14 Renault Traffics – represent replacements for older vehicles, plus additions.
Key to the customer’s decision to place the order was Fraikin’s ability to take over ownership, financing, compliance and maintenance of the new vehicles – allowing JG Pest Control to focus on its core business.
Fraikin structured a personalised contract hire agreement, which included advice on vehicle specification, a dedicated contract manager, plus all repair and maintenance, including tyres, managed within Fraikin’s national service network.
By moving to contract hire, JG Pest Control also benefits from predictable monthly costs, without tying up valuable business capital in owning the new assets.
Before delivering the vehicles, Fraikin arranged for each of the vans to be liveried, plus managed the installation of roof racks and a vehicle tracking system which will work with the customer’s existing solution.
The new vans will cover between 20 and 200 miles per day and are on call 24/7/365.
Callum Gale, operations director at JG Pest Control, said: “Fraikin’s consultative approach from the outset has kept us involved every step of the way and it’s made the process of modernising and expanding our fleet very simple.
"We are looking forward to continuing to develop our working relationship together, especially as our business continues to grow."
