About

Professional & Experienced

Twelve years ago we moved to our purpose built premises on the Lynx Trading Estate where we operate from a large workshop which includes an approved body shop, both featuring the very latest equipment.

We are professionals in long term rentals where any make of vehicle can be supplied, whether it be cars or commercials and any contract can be tailor made to meet the customer’s specific requirements.

Maintenance

Maintenance contracts are also available which offer customers peace of mind proving that our technical team will deal with any problematic vehicles.
