Regal Rentals expands into Greater Manchester

We are delighted to announce the news of our expansion with the launch of a new branch in Greater Manchester.

Regal Rentals has opened for business in Birdhall Lane, Cheadle, creating six jobs.

The opening marks the company’s 12th branch, bringing our total employee numbers to 115.

Regal Rentals, which has its head office in Chester, started out 19 years ago and is an independent licensee for AVIS Budget.

Our branches stretch from Stoke-on-Trent in the south to Carlisle in the North of England.

This is our first branch in Greater Manchester and forms a key part of our continuing expansion across the North of England.

During the next five years we have plans to increase revenues by more than 30 per cent with employee numbers likely to rise to around 150.

We have also recently brought on board Tony Burns as Commercial Manager. Tony was previously a Business Development Manager for Inchcape Wirral Volkswagen, where he worked for over 20 years.

Regal Rentals has also unveiled new branding and a company website to further support our growth plans.

Regal Rentals was founded in 1997 by Jamie and two fellow directors. Last year, Jamie became the sole shareholder of the business following the retirement of his two partners.

An independent vehicle rental company, we work with private, business and corporate customers across the UK from our network of 12 branches and head office in Mollington, Chester.

We have over 1,250 vehicles in our fleet and purchase an average of 2,000 vehicles every year.

We are looking forward to celebrating our 20th anniversary later this year, an achievement that has been made possible thanks to the knowledge and dedication of everyone in the Regal Rentals team.

We pride ourselves on providing customers with the best possible customer service and engagement which, in turn, has allowed us to achieve industry-leading levels of client retention.

How we can provide a vehicle solution for your business

Are you looking for a vehicle for your business? Do you regularly book cars for a member of staff or would like the freedom to hire a car for longer without the ties of leasing?

At Regal Rentals, we specialise in working with companies to provide them with a solution to their commercial vehicle requirements.

Whether you are a sole trader, a SME or a multinational corporation, we have an extensive range of cars and vans available to you through our relationship with AVIS BUDGET.

Need a car at short notice? Give one of our friendly team a call and we will do our best to source a car for you. Looking for a bespoke specification? We can source and purchase a specific vehicle in the colour of your choice.

We can supply vehicles with Sat Nav as standard and we also deliver and collect your vehicle for you. We even provide one way hires to or from all major UK airports.

At Regal Rentals, we understand the importance of ensuring your vehicle livery is Chapter 8 compliant – making it safe to stop on British roads for works or inspection purposes.

And we pride ourselves on the accuracy of our billing and our back-office support.

There are a number of ways in which we can work with a business.

• Flexible long term hire: This is ideal when you need a vehicle for more than four weeks but don’t want to buy one or be tied into a lease or contract hire. It’s a good solution for staff on a probationary period or who have relocated, to tackle seasonal peaks in business, if you have staff visiting from overseas or if you just want to free up cash flow that would otherwise go into buying company cars. Ask us about our range of vehicles which come in a choice of sizes and styles to suit you.
• Fixed term and fixed price leasing: If you’re looking for a 2-4 year hire period, a fixed term leasing agreement is a common option, although it can lack flexibility. Ask us how we can make this type of hire work for your business.
• Fleet Management: We can help you make the best use of your vehicles with our bespoke tariffs and a wide choice of vehicles from small to large cars, vans and 9-seaters.

What you need to know about Grey Fleet

Grey Fleet drivers are employees who drive their own car and use it for business.

Taking into account the administration and cost, paying a fixed mileage allowance for the use of a private car can be seen as far simpler than providing a pool car or arranging for a daily rental vehicle.

Although it can be beneficial for companies, there are a number of issues relating to grey fleet which need to be considered.

Did you know that if a grey fleet driver is using his car for business then you could be liable if he had an accident?

Companies also have a duty of care to ensure that an employee’s car is fit for purpose, has a valid MOT, is insured for business use and that the driver has a valid driving licence.

It is crucial to have systems in place so these checks are made.

Employers can reimburse staff who use their own car for business travel up to 40p per mile without any tax implications for the employee or Class 1A National Insurance implications for the employer.

However, once the employee is claiming for a journey over 80 miles in a day it would be far cheaper for the employer to provide them with a daily rental car instead.

Another thing to be aware of in regards to grey fleet is that, on average, fleet vehicles will be older and create higher emissions than company cars or daily rental vehicles.

Combined with mileage rates, which can create the incentive for additional travel, it means that businesses should look very closely at the impact grey fleet travel has on total emissions.

At Regal Rentals, our fleet management solutions help to ensure that your business makes the best use of its vehicles.

Renting a car from us means you can provide the newest, cleanest and safest vehicles for your employees on a flexible basis. We can deliver cars to the office or home and you can rent them for as little as one hour to one month.

And we also provide employers with detailed management reporting information to help monitor usage, vehicle emissions, costs and the health and safety of employees.
