Since its launch in 2002, growing numbers of Volvo dealers across the UK have been attracted to the Volvo Rental scheme. One of the most recent is HR Owen North London, the first London dealer to join the scheme.
One of HR Owen’s customers is Surrey County Cricket Club (SCCC). The cricket club currently has 12 Volvo XC70 and C70 models on long-term rental, predominantly for use by the players.
On the choice of models supplied to SCCC, Sharon Wright of HR Owen Business Centre says: ‘The Volvo XC70 is the perfect vehicle for carrying all the accessories associated with cricketing life without sacrificing performance or style. The XC70 handles beautifully even when fully loaded. It’s excellent for combining family life with a busy sporting career. The sleek Volvo C70 convertible has ample room for four passengers and can still accommodate luggage and sports equipment.’
Paul Blanchard, Sales and Marketing Director, Surrey County Cricket Club says: ’Our players lead very demanding lives. Safety is paramount on and off the field, so it’s reassuring to know that our players are driving one of the safest makes of cars available. The Rental scheme provided by HR Owen takes care of all of the necessary maintenance of the vehicles, leaving us free to concentrate on what’s important to us – cricket!’
Volvo Rental offers long and short-term hire packages. Short-term rental is aimed primarily at companies that need an interim increase in their fleet size and offering. It also enables members of the general public the opportunity to hire out a different model from their own, perhaps if they are looking to buy a new Volvo, or simply needing to rent a car.
HR Owen North London is joined by another new recruit to Volvo Rental, Riverside Motors, now offering the scheme from Volvo dealer locations in Hull and Doncaster.
A total of 14 dealers now offers the Volvo Rental scheme around the UK with more expected to join before the end of 2004.
