Cartwright Rentals enjoyed another record year in 2014 with growth of 5 per cent across its rental products.
The company’s rental trailer fleet park has also grown by about five per cent in number, with utilisation at an all time high of 95 per cent, even with this large increase in the trailer fleet.
In recent months the composition of the rental fleet has been re-balanced with the introduction of a significant amount of new build equipment including double deck boxes and curtainsiders and additional specialist equipment.
As a direct result of a recent decision to dispose of several hundred older trailers from the company’s trailer park, this has dramatically reduced the age of the fleet and as a direct consequence improved the overall quality of the mix of trailer equipment on offer.
Paul Burn, Rental Sales Director at Cartwright Rentals commented: “Customers are increasingly demanding double decks, specialist equipment and XL rated kit.
“We are able to provide a wide choice of rental product and we are also fortunate to be in the unique position as part of a one stop solution under the Cartwright brand offer of ‘Manufacturing and more’, with a diverse choice of business options from new build and rental, to finance and fleet services.”
Paul Burn revealed that the Rentals Division would be making a further seven-figure significant investment in the near future with new refrigerated equipment, both in single and double deck and urban configuration, in order to meet customer demand.
“Once again we are reacting to customer requirements and the introduction of a rental offer for our (new) refrigerated products will further extend our range of rental products available to the market,” he added.
