Nexus Vehicle Rental celebrates one millionth booking

Nexus Vehicle Rental is celebrating its one millionth booking after 12 years in business and has rewarded the lucky customer with a boot-full of prizes.

Nexus’ managing director, John Ellis, said: “Reaching one million customers over 12 years is an achievement unparalleled in the rental outsourcing sector. Our market leading IRIS software, coupled with the drive and commitment of everyone who works at Nexus, is what has made it possible.”

Sean Kelly, from global chemical distributor Univar, was the lucky customer and was treated to a luxury hamper, including a bottle of wine and £100 of Harrods vouchers, as well as a free vehicle upgrade. Nexus surprised him by delivering a Vauxhall Insignia SRI with a 2.0 litre petrol engine. On top of that Univar, which rents around 150 cars a month from Nexus, was provided the rental free of charge.

Kelly said: “The IRIS software enables us to increase efficiency and save time when booking rental vehicles and provides us with increased access to thousands of vehicles through Nexus’ supply chain. We generally make around 150 vehicle rental bookings per month through Nexus so this increased time saving is vital to our business. All bookings are guaranteed which allows us additional peace of mind and we usually receive confirmation within an hour.”

Ellis concluded: “By continuously striving to improve and develop our systems, we hope to carry on seeing Nexus grow and we’re now looking forward to greeting our two millionth customer.”
