Hertz Launches New Van Supersite For Newcastle, England

LONDON, Nov. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  The Hertz Corporation (NYSE: HTZ), the world's leading general use car rental brand, has announced that Hertz UK has extended its nationwide Van Supersite network to the Newcastle area. The 84,500 square foot facility based at Industrial Road, Washington, Tyne & Wear will serve businesses in the north east of England. The full range of vans on offer includes Luton box vehicles, tippers, crew cabs and customised vehicles.

As with all Hertz Van Supersites, the Newcastle facility will support both bespoke and standard van rental requirements. Customers will have access to commercial vehicle expertise, service and maintenance support, and efficient repairs of both warranty and non-warranty vehicles. In addition, Hertz Van Supersites provide innovative fleet management services that enable fleet managers to streamline vehicle usage, cut down pool fleet numbers, and effectively reduce administration costs. 

Michel Taride, Group President of Hertz International, said: "Van rental offers a compelling alternative to vehicle ownership. It reduces the financial commitment of purchasing, breakdown cover, insurance, and getting a fleet taxed and ready for the road. The trend for van fleet rentals instead of purchases is increasing, which has created a requirement for our van rental business to expand even further."

"Hertz works with thousands of large and small van operators, from self-employed van drivers to large operators with 500+ van fleets," added Neil Cunningham, General Manager, Hertz UK. "We are excited to be investing and expanding in the local area and also increasing the number of people we employee locally."

The opening of the Newcastle Van Supersite is part of Hertz's long term plan to supersize its Van Supersite network in the UK, which now features 21 locations strategically placed throughout the country. The Supersites have the capacity to rent over 1,000 vehicles and have been specifically built to meet the demands of fleet managers who operate large commercial fleets. Located to enable quick and easy access to motorways, the network enables a rapid response to the needs of fleet managers across a large operating area.
