Municipal vehicle rental company CTS Hire has been granted an Operator’s Licence by the Traffic Commissioners Office and has already invested in a new tractor unit to extend its vehicle delivery and collection services.
Until now CTS Hire has required two drivers to deliver or collect its rental vehicles. The new service will enable the company to increase capacity as well as schedule deliveries and collections more efficiently.
Bob Sweetland, Managing Director, CTS: “As an owner-operator we can expand our capabilities and provide a more efficient service to our customers. Not only can we deliver refuse vehicles more quickly we can support our nationwide mobile engineer network by transporting vehicles in need of maintenance or mechanical work to one of our depots.”
The new service will also benefit CTS Hire’s parent company, contract hire and fleet management providers Specialist Fleet Services Ltd (SFS), by supporting the delivery of replacement vehicles to customers and the collection of end-of-life vehicles.
CTS Hire is based in South Gloucestershire close to the M5 and the company’s extensive fleet includes 3.5t-26t Refuse Collection Vehicles (RCV), specialist recycling vehicles, caged tippers, and hook loaders all available for short to long-term hire.
