Commercial Vehicle Solutions, the truck and van contract hire and rental division of Close Brothers, is to be rebranded as Close Brothers Vehicle Hire.
Close Brothers Vehicle Hire will continue to service customers from its Derby Head Office.
These services relate to both truck and van contract hire and rental and are further augmented with a 24-hour fleet management and maintenance programme.
In addition, flexible finance packages including sale and leaseback are part of the service proposition.
Demonstration of its intent to grow and develop a wider range of specialist service provision can be seen with the introduction of coach and bus rentals in early 2015.
Close Brothers Vehicle Hire now additionally operates a fleet of Wrightbus Streetlite midi buses in a broad range of specifications. There are also plans to further develop the global product offering and further the specialist capabilitywithin the business.
Terry Ottey, managing director of Close Brothers Vehicle Hire said: “This rebrand is important as it presents an opportunity to demonstrate our customer led, ‘service proposition’. As part of one of the oldest and most respected merchant banks in the UK, the name equally portrays the commitment and positive association with all of our divisions and businesses. We fully understand that our customer’s basic requirements are to keep vehicles constantly on the move.
"We seek to help them understand the true cost of their existing operations and provide a cost effective and service-led alternative. At Close Brothers Vehicle Hire we want to continue to improve the efficiency of our customer’s daily operations and improve access to more flexible and sustainable solutions.”
