A full service approach to commercial vehicles

Commercial vehicle

Light Commercial Vehicles

Whether you’re a sole trader, limited company or public sector body, we understand how important it is to effectively manage commercial vehicle leasing. That’s why our end-to-end LCV service covers absolutely everything from sourcing through to disposal, to make it as quick and easy as possible to get you on the road.

Through our many years of experience, we have developed a deep understanding of the unique requirements and challenges of running a fleet of LCVs.

What we do

LCV consultancy

Our fleet consultants work with you to understand exactly how your business works, review your vehicle requirements and help you identify the right vans. We then build you a vehicle policy that is efficient, cost effective and environmentally sensitive.


Contract hire is the most popular funding method in the UK for very good reason. But it may not be suitable in every situation. That’s why we offer a variety of other funding options such as contract purchase and outright purchase.

Reduce downtime

Service Direct is the ACVM scheme that helps to minimise off-road time by making it quick and simple to book your entire fleet in for fast servicing. Meanwhile, we can manage defect reports and provide downtime management services.

Bespoke vehicles

We’re proud that we’re one of the only leasing companies to have an in-house coachbuilders and digital print facility. Together they can work with you to meet your exact requirements, by providing and managing:

  • A specialist van conversion service, from initial design to complete build.
  • Guidance on legal compliance.
  • Customisation or re-design parts of your vehicle such as racking.
  • Any ancillaries you need, such as tachographs and telematics.
  • Design and application of livery or even full vinyl wraps.

And your vehicles are always compliant with legislative requirements (such as LOLER) to make sure drivers stay safe.
