Salford Van Hire - competitive vehicle rental and contract hire since 1965
Salford Van Hire was formed in 1965 by Raffaello Bacci who was at that time a manfacturer of lampshades and ornamental statuettes in Salford. He realised that he could earn a few extra pounds for his family by renting his van out when he wasn't using it for deliveries. Such was the demand that he had to quickly buy another van and shortly after that another one. This entrepreneurial spirit has driven the steady growth of the company to make it one of the largest car and commercial vehicle rental organisations in the UK. Now based at two strategically placed depots in Manchester and Leeds, Salford Van Hire has an annual turnover in excess of £45 million and is one of the most respected organisations in the transport sector.
Still independent and privately owned, Salford Van Hire is run by a team of transport professionals who know the industry inside out and because there is no bureaucratic hierarchy, Salford Van Hire is able to take decisions on your behalf, quickly and effectively. In the fast-moving world of transport and logistics, there is no doubt that this responsive attitude has been a key component in our continued success. This is reflected in a large core of repeat business from regular customers who know they can depend on our reputation for value for money - whether it's a special deal on car hire for a weekend away or a competitive rate on a truck with tail-lift for a money-saving DIY removal. Or even a large nationwide contract hire fleet with a full maintenance package.
And because over the years we have listened to our customers and understand their needs, Salford Van Hire operates an extensive spot hire fleet that provides one of the biggest ranges of commercial vehicles for short or long term rental anywhere. When we say 'for immediate availability' we're probably the only vehicle rental company that has the sheer number of hire vehicles available to back this up.
For big transport operators and the big name third party logistics companies Salford Van Hire remains the preferred choice in Contract Hire. They value our independence because it means that the advice our vehicle consultants provide is always impartial and always grounded on first hand experience derived from running one of the biggest and most diverse transport fleets in the country. Salford Van Hire is not linked to any vehicle manufacturer or finance house and our buying power ensures that you always get a highly competitive contract hire deal and one that is exactly right for you. There's no problem finding replacement vehicles when yours are off the road either.
Some four decades on Raffaello Bacci remains the hands-on Chairman of a great British transport institution. Now with his family at his right hand, he continues to ensure that Salford Van Hire is the same friendly, flexible and fiercely independent company he first started. The difference today is that Salford Van Hire now has the strength and depth of resources to guarantee that you'll always get the vehicles you want at competitive rates and exactly when you want them.
Nowhere in the UK will you find a wider vehicle selection. From cars and light vans up to the latest artic and rigid trucks, you'll find the vehicle you want on hand.
