The moves follows a successful year-long trial during which Practical acquired and ran an outlet in Derby as a showcase for its franchisee network. The outlet is also being used for staff training purposes and has now relocated after building its fleet from 10 to 75 vehicles. A second outlet will open this month in Hereford. Agnew said: 'We have never been in a stronger position to roll-out a division of outlets entirely owned by Practical Car & Van Rental and managed by head office staff. The remarkable growth of the Derby pilot scheme has given us the confidence to press ahead. '
