Large company buying power for business van operators
Small businesses, van operators and owner-drivers can tap into big-company style discounts claims Nexus, a leading vehicle rental broker of vans.
Nexus has further consolidated its market position with the purchase of FMG Support’s vehicle rental management business.
The acquisition broadens the buying ability of Nexus; savings are passed directly to customers.
“The purchase means we can provide an even better service to any type of small business,” said Neil McCrossan, chief executive, Nexus Vehicle Rental.
“If you’re a small business it’s probably difficult to get a deal. Because we’re a big rental broker, we can provide large company benefits even though you might be a small one man owner-operator.
“No matter how small your business, you get the same levels of discount enjoyed by blue chip companies. Because we buy so much rental we can pass on the benefits.
“And while we’re influential in the market, we’re only a small company ourselves‚ so service is important to us. We provide the same levels to all our customers. They’re all important.”
More choice and more van supply thanks to Nexus’ acquisition of FMG Support’s vehicle rental business
McCrossan says part of Nexus’ success is its online IRIS web application. It creates a real-time daily rental marketplace. This allows end users, rental remarketers and daily rental providers to transact business via a single paperless systems platform.
“I think the other point to make for small businesses is that, despite the current economic finance you can still find the finance. We’re a small business ourselves. Yet we’re still expanding.”
Nexus Vehicle Rental is based in Leeds, West Yorkshire. It is one of the country’s largest independent providers of vehicle rental to business.
