Jolly Good Vehicle Rentals first opened its doors in Bayston Hill in January 2010 but due to rapid expansion the firm was forced to move to bigger premises last summer.

Twelve months on and the depot located on the former Shuker’s Land Rover site continues to grow with manager Jason King planning further expansion over the next year.

He said: “I’ve been overwhelmed with the success of the business since we moved to the new site.

“The depot is in a really prominent position and is much easier for our customers to access.

“The move was the first major step to growing the business and since then it has gone from strength to strength.

“We have built up an impressive portfolio of clients across the county and we plan to build further on this over the next 12 months.

“I was the first franchisee to join the company but as a team we have since opened a further six franchisees across the UK with Newton being our latest depot to open just last month (July).

“Over the next five years we plan to open a further 13 sites across the UK and we are already developing our next location.”

Since opening at the new site, on the crossroads of the A49 Hereford Road and Lyth Hill Road, Mr King has taken on Elaine Millward as rental desk manager and an extra valeter and is planning to expand his team further.

The firm provides lead brand vans, cars, camper vans and other vehicles for hire and Mr King believes its 24-hour service is partly the reason why people are turning to Jolly Good Van Hire.

Over the summer months the business, which has its company head office in Wrexham, has seen increasing demand for its Volkswagen Camper Vans with the vehicles proving especially popular with people travelling to key sporting events such as the Tour de France in Yorkshire and the recent Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

Jolly Good Van Hire in Shrewsbury is open 7 days a week from 7am and no deposit is required.
