Long Term Rental | Suffolk & Cambridgeshire | EMG Rent Direct

Long-Term Hire

It may be the case that you require one of our rental cars or vans for just a day - particularly in the case of commercial vehicles that are being used for house clearances or removals. But there is a growing trend of people renting their vehicle on a long-term basis as an alternative to the huge outlay involved in purchasing. As such, you’ll be delighted to learn that we at Rent Direct will be able to supply you with access to one of our vehicles for any agreed period that you choose, with very short minimum retention periods (usually around three months). 

Long-term hire is a particularly valuable option for businesses that need to add cars or vans to their company fleet. Our Flexifleet scheme makes it easier than ever to find the models you need in a manner that is simple to manage and affordable. In fact, Flexifleet will enable you to release capital from your current fleet, reduce maintenance costs, and minimise any capital outlay on required vehicles. As such, for project or seasonal work that requires additional vehicles, long-term hire will prove ideal. ​

Your Long-Term Hire Branches
