Newly registered vehicles at Shrewsbury vehicle hire depot

A Shropshire hire firm has celebrated the opening of its new depot with a party and host of newly registered vehicles.

Jolly Good Van Hire moved to new premises in Bayston Hill in July and held an opening event for more than 30 guests, including the Mayor and Mayoress of Shrewsbury.

And this month (September 2013), manager Jason King has introduced 15 brand new, 63-plate vehicles to the fleet to continue the celebrations.

The business had previously shared premises with the nearby Welland Car Sales but had outgrown the space and moved to its new site just up the road, at the junction of Hereford Road and Lyth Hill Road.

“We wanted to hold a party with suppliers, customers and guests to celebrate our new depot and thank them for their support over the years,” he said.

“There was food and drink and we also invited the Mayor of Shrewsbury, Councillor Jon Tandy, who managed to find time to come along with his wife Diane, even though it was also the Shrewsbury Flower Show that day.

“He told me he was a great supporter of local businesses and we were really grateful to him for coming along.”

Mr King will be taking delivery of the rest of his brand new vehicles over the next couple of weeks, with a 63-plate Ford Transit already out on the roads.

“It was a nice bonus to move into our new premises knowing we also had a host of new cars and vans arriving at the same time,” he said.

“The new site gives us so much more space both for our vehicles, offices and customer parking and are literally just a few seconds down the road from our old premises, with a much stronger presence at the roadside.”

Jolly Good Van Hire provides both short and long-term and flexible, rolling hire contracts for vans and cars, with delivery of its vehicles nationwide.

Vans are replaced with brand new models every year and cars every six months, so those with long-term hire contracts regularly enjoy the latest models.
