The facility was initially stocked with a fleet of 200 curtainsiders, but that is now growing, with the addition of a further 50 trailers.
By the end of June (2016) Fraikin Northampton will also be offering the full Fraikin rental line-up from 3.5 to 44 tonne trucks.
“Trailer rental was a new venture for us last summer and the demand we’ve seen has been a pleasant surprise,” explains Mark Newnes, operations director at Fraikin.
“with utilisation rates well ahead of target, we are confident these next 50 trailers will prove as desirable to hire as the first 200.”
Commenting on the expanded range, Steph Carpenter, Rental Branch Manager, says: “Northampton was originally conceived to house our national trailer rental business but we positioned some light commercials and trucks on site and they’ve been going out on hire locally as fast as they arrive.”
