Europcar Mobility Group UK has announced the opening of its latest van supersite in Sheffield.
The new 23,000 square foot site gives businesses access to a wide range of commercial vehicles. These include car derived vans, short and long wheelbase as well as more specialised light commercial vehicles, most of which are available within a two-hour booking window.
Europcar says it also features a team of van experts with local knowledge, who can help businesses identify the right vehicle for every job.
In addition, it is aiming to provide businesses operating in and around Sheffield with a low emission solution ahead of the city’s introduction of a clean air zone (CAZ) in 2021.
Polluting vans, HGVs, buses, coaches and taxis will be charged to enter the inner ring road and city centre.
Being able to access compliant vehicles will be vital, says Europcar. As well as conventional diesel engines, the site will provide access to both car and van electric solutions.
Stuart Russell, sales director for commercial vehicles at Europcar Mobility Group UK, said: “As investment continues in the North, the businesses supporting this growth may need to add to their commercial vehicle fleets at short notice to deal with additional work. Or, as is often the case, they may need one or two additional vehicles for individual jobs.
“The range of vehicles available from our new Sheffield Van Supersite, combined with the commercial vehicle expertise of the local team, means we can underpin the operations of those businesses very effectively.
“Plus, with many UK firms looking for an alternative to the long-term financial commitment of outright vehicle purchase or leasing, Europcar Advantage – our flexible rental solution for 84 days plus – will also be available from the new Sheffield site.”
