The new venture will see Northgate provide commercial vehicles through the easyVan.com website.
Northgate has a fleet of over 65,300 vehicles available from 88 locations throughout the UK.
Customers are given the choice of five vehicles, depending on the size they require, ranging from car-derived vans to Ford Transit Lutons with tail-lifts. Confirmation of the booking is sent to the customer via email in the form of a voucher which they print off – detailing from which Northgate rental location they can collect the van.
Phil Moorhouse, managing director – UK Rental, at Northgate said: ‘Northgate is excited about this venture. It expands our routes to market, allowing us to reach the consumer without detracting from our main commercial offering.’
