Ve­hi­cle deal is great move for Enserve

Macclesfield Express - - BUSINESS SME BUSINESS TIPS -

A COM­PANY that pro­vides sup­port ser­vices to the util­ity sec­tor has teamed up with a ve­hi­cle hire busi­ness to re­duce costs and pro­vide more flex­i­bil­ity.

Enserve, which is based at Tyther­ing­ton Busi­ness Park, now has ac­cess to a fleet of 450 ve­hi­cles from North­gate Ve­hi­cle Hire.

Paul Brown, head of group fleet at Enserve, said: “Win­ning new con­tracts of­ten re­quires adding to our fleet in large num­bers each time. One con­tract win for Thames Wa­ter meant we had to mo­bilise 100 ve­hi­cles within one month.

“North­gate’s flex­i­bil­ity meant they were able to pro­vide the lo­gis­ti­cal sup­port to get th­ese vans on the road in plenty of time, com­plete with cus­tomi­sa­tion and liv­ery.”

Enserve’s client con­tracts usu­ally last three to four years but re­quire­ments can change part­way through; mean­ing any­thing from a com­pletely new set of ve­hi­cles, to a con­tract be­ing com­pleted early and ve­hi­cles be­com­ing sur­plus to con­tract needs.

Un­der North­gate’s flex­i­ble agree­ment, Enserve can hand back ve­hi­cles with­out penalty and no up­front de­posit is re­quired prior to tak­ing new vans.

Paul added: “For Enserve, the vans are as much a tool to get the job done as the tool­box. You can have the best en­gi­neers and the best tools for the job but if you can’t get them to the job it is point­less.

“North­gate un­der­stands how crit­i­cal our vans are to our op­er­a­tions. They help keep our op­er­a­tions op­er­a­tional.”

Re­becca Suther­land, na­tional strate­gic ac­count man­ager, North­gate Ve­hi­cle Hire, said: “North­gate has built up a strong and trust­ing re­la­tion­ship with Enserve. We are re­ally pleased that we have been able to pro­vide them with a fully flex­i­ble, trans­par­ent pack­age which re­sponds to their ever-chang­ing client needs while de­liv­er­ing a first class ser­vice at an af­ford­able price.”
