Burnt Tree opens first branch in Scotland

Burnt Tree Vehicle Rental officially opened its gates to the Scottish public for the first time this week. Situated just outside Glasgow on the A74, the site is the Group’s 18th in total but the first in Scotland.

Gareth Jones, director for the north, said: “We are extremely proud to be opening our first branch in Scotland. It represents a significant move for the business and gives us a strong foothold in a new market.”

The new site, formerly a coachworks, has a 1.5-acre yard, full repair and maintenance facilities and can hold up to 1,500 vehicles.

The move into Scotland follows the announcement earlier this year that the group had invested £60 million into the expansion and renewal of its fleet and is further evidence of the company’s continued success.

Jones says it is “a sign of the confidence in the business that whilst many of the competition are either downsizing or withdrawing from the market entirely, Burnt Tree has remained positive”.
