Vehicle hire from the name you can trust

Commercial feature

In today's tough economic climate, it's important to make every penny count, with finance and cash flow being the key elements of any sound business.

In a time where banks are almost “accused” of not lending money to small businesses, large deposits being requested and the ever-increasing cost of borrowing; its good to know that one local company is doing something that little bit different.

If you're setting up your own business and find yourself needing a van or truck then look no further than Rentamerc.

Established over 20 years ago, Rentamerc is a recognised specialist in contract hire which prides itself on offering a comprehensive range of vehicles at competitive prices on any Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicle.

Just some of the benefits of contract hiring a vehicle for your new business from Rentamerc are finance free agreements, low deposits and fixed monthly costs. All servicing and maintenance is also included in the deal, as are replacement vehicles with payments being 100% deductible against taxable profits.

As Norman McBride, Managing Director explained, Rentamerc contracts are non finance based. Although legally binding, they do not effect your existing credit lines and may even free up borrowing potential for business development, stock or expansion.

This also means that because it's an agreement between the customer and Rentamerc, contracts can be more flexible to reflect the real needs and any possible changes in your business.

“By Contract Hiring a vehicle from Rentamerc, this could mean that you don't need to borrow thousands of pounds off the bank just to cover vehicle costs.”

All servicing and maintenance included in the monthly payments are carried out by Mercedes-Benz trained technicians with the full support of the Mercedes-Benz dealer network and a replacement vehicle provided while yours is temporarily off the road at no extra cost to you.

Mr McBride said: “Our approach to customers is to be as flexible as possible.

Customers can hire our vehicles for a period of one month right up to seven years or more, which means we are able to tailor and change contracts to meet individual needs.

“People setting up a business may hire a small van but if their business expands, then they may need to hire a bigger vehicle which we can accommodate.”

In summary, customers should focus on the following:

  • Quality Mercedes-Benz vehicles at competitive prices
  • Low deposit and fixed fully inclusive costs
  • Non-financial, flexible agreements.
  • Tax efficient contracts with no residual risks.

A selection of the Mercedes-Benz vehicles available from Rentamerc are:

  • Vito - small van, versatile and stylish with exemplary safety all round.
  • Sprinter - Medium-large van, an incredibly versatile vehicle with excellent load space.
