New Europcar Long-term Van Solution Combines The Cost-Certainty Of Leasing With The Flexibility Of Rental

Planet Vending has been talking to Europcar about cars, and vans and how the industry has changed. It is no longer just about renting your cars on your holidays, although as one of the global brands they do that very well, no, it is all about transport solutions and at a time of cost uncertainty, they want to bring to your attention the advantages of locking in prices but not on a long term commitment. So, for those who are considering expanding their van fleet, or venturing into electric cars/vans, you can now trial before making that longer term commitment. Read what the guys from Europcar are saying.

Innovative package delivers rate stability for one or two years, with a price capped third year if required

With a clear focus on the financial pressures businesses are currently facing, Europcar has launched a new solution for one or two year van rental.  Designed to provide certainty over costs, the rate for the new package encompasses all costs, including maintenance and servicing, with the commitment-light benefits of rental.

As Keith Shorter, UK Vans & Trucks Director at Europcar explains, the new solution aims to provide the flexibility of rental without any variables in the cost. “Many businesses are telling us that they like the flexibility of rental for one, two and even 3 years, rather than committing to outright purchase or other less flexible lease-style solutions. However, when looking at a rental solution they also require certainty over costs.

“We are therefore offering an all-inclusive rate. Customers sign up for one or two years and the rate will not change during that period regardless of any additional costs for servicing or maintenance. They can even cap the price for a third year. It delivers important peace of mind in the current uncertain economic climate.”

Offered as part of Europcar’s Long-Term Van Hire solutions, the new solution can be applied to any of the van fleet including short and long wheel base, Chapter 8 vehicles, crew cabs and specialist bodied vehicles. It also provides the option for variable mileage requirements and includes free delivery & collection to business or home addresses. Customers must simply commit to a minimum of 12 months, and they will only be subject to a pre-advised fee if they return the vehicle early during the chosen second or third year.

“Commercial vehicles play a critical role in the UK economy. However, many businesses are facing challenging operating conditions and need as much certainty as possible over their costs”, added Keith Shorter. “They also want flexibility that means they’re not directly committed to vehicles for the very long-term.

“Our new long-term van rental solution aims to offer the best of both worlds – the flexibility of rental, with the certainty of cost”
