Arqiva has extended its vehicle rental agreement with the rental management division of the Leasedrive Group for a further two years.
Roddy Graham, commercial director, at Leasedrive, said: “We are delighted to have renewed our contract with one of our largest rental customers.
“Arqiva has a broadcast and mobile communications presence throughout the UK including the Isle of Man, the islands around Scotland and the Channel Islands so true nationwide coverage is of paramount importance. With its diverse vehicle requirements, we provide Arqiva with a dedicated reservations team to meet its specific needs.
“Given the nature of its business, besides renting different types of car, Arqiva has a requirement for specialist four-wheel-drive vehicles in order for its field engineers to access remote transmission masts, especially during the current digital switch-over.
"Although these rentals only account for 16% of its total spend, the availability of these specialist vehicles anywhere in the country for its immediate use is business critical.”
Leasedrive Rental Management has access to nearly a quarter of a million vehicles from 1,200 locations in the UK, including airports. For rentals of 28 days or more, there is the Stopgap solution and for rentals of 90 days or more, Stopgap Plus.
