Supertrucks launches glass-carrying van rental business24 July 2014

Bodybuilder Supertrucks has launched a new rental business for operators needing a glass-carrying vehicle at short notice.

Supertrucks Rental, as the division is known, is now offering converted 3.5-tonne Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vans for short- or long-term hire.

Fitted with anodised external racks capable of carrying sheets of glass up to 3215mm x 2540mm in size, they also have roof racks with drop-down ladders at the rear. Inside are two more racks, one running the full length of the body, the other shorter to allow for the side door.

Specialist vehicles of this type are not available from traditional van rental firms, as Supertrucks' manager Dave Hill points out.

"Anyone whose business entails transporting big pieces of glass knows well that when an urgent requirement for additional transport arises, the local van hire outlet is not an option because their vehicles are not fit for purpose."

The Merseyside-based business – which was acquired earlier this year by Bevan Group – has already taken rental bookings and is confident of further demand. It plans to introduce rigid trucks for hire in the future.
