Vehicle rental business AMT Group has strengthened its position in the luxury chauffeur sector with the addition of five Mercedes-Benz V-Class MPVs.
The company, which focuses on the niche prestige and specialist vehicle sector, has invested £250,000 to offer short-term rental of the V-Class Sport.
The new vehicles will boost AMT's fleet of luxury vehicles suitable for hire to the chauffeur and corporate travel sector by more than 35% - it currently includes Mercedes S-Class limousines, plus E-Class, Range Rover LWB, Jaguar XJ and Audi A8 models.
"Increasingly, we are finding that corporate and private customers are not only demanding top-of-the-range vehicles, but also want a wider choice of types of models from prestige and sports performance cars, electric and hybrid to people carriers, MPVs, double cabs and pick-ups,” says Neil McGawley, managing director of AMT Group.
“Luxury chauffeur-driven vehicles is a buoyant market segment, particularly for airport transfers, and consequently we are continuing to invest in upgrading this part of our fleet to ensure that we can provide the very latest and most luxurious models.”
AMT Group serves both the corporate and leisure markets and has a UK fleet of 1,500 vehicles, operating from seven locations across the country.
Most recently, it opened a new rental facility near Stockport, Manchester, to develop its business in the north west, with a focus on serving Liverpool and Manchester airports.
As well as private individuals, customers include accident and fleet management providers, insurance and utility companies, local authorities and emergency services, and hospitality and travel businesses. Vehicles are available to rent from just one day to six months or longer.
The group also has a leasing division offering a short-term leasing.
