The van hire division is the fourth new revenue stream to be launched by GAP this year, following on from survey & safety hire, event services and welfare services.
The company now styles itself GAP Hire Solutions.
The new division is based on the recent acquisition of Central Vehicle Hire, which operates across central Scotland. As part of the purchase, GAP Vehicle Hire has taken on a fleet of more than 1,000 vans and cars.
Operations director Jim Forrester said: “I am excited about establishing GAP Vehicle Hire as the UK’s market leader. We have a truly unique offering as well as the newest fleet of vehicles in the UK and I believe our flexibility, customer service levels and the exceptional reputation of GAP Group set us apart from the competition. We are in an extremely strong position to offer our customers an unrivalled level of service.”
