The MV Commercial Advantage
Our history begins 2001 with a small Scottish vehicle import company called Motor Vision. We quickly saw that our clients wanted more than just imported vehicles; they were looking for a local commercial vehicle hiring company that they could build a relationship with and one that understood their needs.
Once we started helping companies reduce their overheads and capital expenditure through flexible fixed monthly rates our growth increased to the point that in 2002 we invested in a United Vehicle Rental Franchise. We followed up this growth with the acquisition of Regal Truck Rental in Luton in 2003. This acquisition grew our fleet by 150 HGV vehicles and helped to cement our position as a UK wide truck rental service. Our second acquisition in 2004 of TLS brought an additional 400 vehicles into our fleet which now stretched across the transport industry from 3.5t LCV vehicles to 44t tractor units.
In 2005 we expanded our core fleet offer to include truck mounted crane or lorry mounted crane vehicles as they are often known. Later in 2005, Foden announced that they would no longer be manufacturing in the UK and we were able to acquire one of their premises. We invested heavily in this new site, creating a new operation centre which would manage the day to day services and start bringing work that was previously sub contracted out in house. These services included as vehicle repair, maintenance and servicing, as well as painting, fabricating and engineering.
In 2018 we moved our head office to an all-in-one super-site in Airdrie, Scotland. This new site brought sales, hire, leasing, finance, maintenance, engineering and painting facilities all under one roof to further increase departmental efficiencies and further reduce vehicle build time. Today we operate a complete end to end nationwide commercial hire and sales service with main depots in London Luton, Haydock and Airdrie, as well as several fabrication and engineering sites across the UK.
