The owner of a Shropshire vehicle leasing firm has welcomed moves by the big three supermarkets to slash fuel prices ahead of Christmas.

Jason King, owner of the Jolly Good Vehicle Rental depot in Bayston Hill, Shrewsbury, said people looking to get settled into their new homes before Christmas would benefit hugely from the cheaper petrol and diesel rates introduced this week by Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Asda.

Mr King said: “The run up to Christmas is always a really busy period for house movers with people wanting to get settled in their new home. “We have found more and more people are opting to hire a van to move themselves to keep costs down so these reduced fuel rates are extremely welcome.

“It’s especially good news for our customers who have lots of belongings and need to make multiple trips between homes. 

“It may seem like just a few pence savings but pennies soon turn into pounds if you are covering lots of miles in a rental vehicle.

“There is also the added bonus that fuel price cuts have a knock-on effect to reduce the costs of good transportation including items people have brought online being delivered by couriers.

“With people starting to save and buy things for Christmas this can only be a good thing.”

Sainsbury’s and Tesco both announced a drop of up to five pence per litre, starting on Tuesday this week, while Asda said it would reduce petrol by up to one pence and diesel by two. The cuts have been welcomed by motoring organisations AA and RAC.

Mr King, who first opened his doors in Bayston Hill four years ago, said they were always keen to advise customers on other ways to save fuel when leasing their vehicles.

He said: “There are several ways to reduce fuel consumption when driving a van or other vehicle such as using air conditioning sparingly, using higher gears, slowing down and driving smoothly and efficiently. “Planning your journey in advance and choosing uncongested routes is also key,” he added.

As well as vans Jolly Good Vehicle Rentals also provides cars, camper vans and other vehicles for hire. It offers a 24 hour service and is open 7 days a week from 7am and no deposit is required. Call Jason King and his team on (01743) 770035 to make a booking or visit for further information.
