Europcar UK is to supply a fleet of commercial vehicles on long-term hire to gas and electricity supplier Eversmart Energy.
The vehicles, which have been liveried with the Eversmart Energy brand, will be used by its team of engineers.
Barney Cook, managing director of Eversmart Energy, said: “As a growing business, we want to stay agile and able to adapt as our customer needs change.
"We, therefore, wanted to avoid outright vehicle purchase or leasing which would lock us into the same fleet for a period of time. Instead, we believe that long-term vehicle hire gives us the flexibility to mobilise our team of 40 engineers."
Stuart Russell, director commercial vehicles at Europcar UK Group added: “Eversmart Energy required a van rental partner that could be flexible as well as cost-effective which we can clearly deliver.
"We recognised that the emergent company needed to focus onother investments and wanted to eliminate the long-term commitment of vehicle ownership.
"By using our services, it can upscale its operations in line with business growth."
