TOM Vehicle Rental opens Birmingham 'mega depot'

TOM Vehicle Rental has opened a commercial vehicle hire depot in Perry Barr, Birmingham to serve the West Midlands and surrounding areas.

The move enhances the company’s ability to support existing customers in the region with its comprehensive fleet of cars, vans, trucks and trailers and improves the fast-growing company’s national footprint.

The depot extends to more than 3 acres on the prominent and well-established Tameside Business Park adjacent to the M6 motorway. 

Now open for business, the 'mega depot' has been supported with a multi-million pound capital investment and will be easily identifiable from the M6 motorway when building of its purpose-built commercial vehicle workshop completes in early 2017.

Birmingham is the fourth new English depot added to TOM’s network since 2015, joining Castleford, Nottingham and East London in accompanying its first English base in Manchester, which opened in 2013.

The latest addition increases the company’s operational network to 12 full-service hire depots nationwide.

T.O.M Vehicle Rental Chief Executive Robert Stewart said: “This is an exciting and important strategic development for us. We expect to grow our market share by making our customer-focused commercial vehicle hire solutions more widely available through more local depots. 

Our aim is to provide a national service to fleet customers offering the best vehicles and service with the flexibility to respond quickly to customer demand at a local level.“
