T.O.M Vehicle Rental wins ScottishPower Vehicle Rental contract

T.O.M Vehicle Rental has been selected by ScottishPower as the sole supplier of LCV, 4x4, HGV and specialist vehicles for its nationwide vehicle rental requirements.

Under the new three-year agreement for Vehicle Rental, T.O.M is expected to provide about 7,500 rentals per year for ScottishPower across all aspects of its operation to cover vehicle downtime, vehicle maintenance requirements and accident damage as well as additional provision to fulfil peaks in operational demand or wait times on newly ordered core fleet vehicles.

T.O.M was selected following a detailed tender process, with the company’s industry reputation for excellent service and competitive pricing as well as their ability to supply kit out and telematics solutions to their vehicles understood to have been key decision factors for the blue-chip power supplier.

Having the scale and scope of fleet as well as the flexibility to provide a wide diversity of vehicles at short notice also contributed to T.O.M winning the vehicle rental contract

John Moore, Fleet Manager at ScottishPower, said:

“We look forward to working with T.O.M. Vehicle Rental and we are confident that they will provide an excellent service to assist our fleet operations. We have been very impressed by T.O.M’s customer service and flexibility, and with access to a wide range of vehicles, they will help to support all of our business areas."

“We are looking forward to working with ScottishPower to provide effective rental and fleet management solutions that fully supports the fleet needs of their business. This is a major partnership for T.O.M Vehicle Rental which demonstrates the full extent of our offering and service capability. The quality and diversity of our complete fleet offering and our fast-expanding UK network of depots is meaning we are being approached more and more by large companies in the Utilities sector looking to fulfil national vehicle rental requirements.”
