Alltruck plc’s Rental Team have recently relocated to a brand-new 1.6 Acre Truck Rental Facility, which is situated in the heart of Leicestershire with excellent access to the M1, M69 and the A5.
The new Alltruck plc site opened on the 8th of June, and the rental team has already settled in well.
The rental team’s new location is only ten minutes away from our Head Office, based in Croft, Leicestershire. It is also is just off J21 on the M1, which will mean that our Alltruck PLC rental services will be easier to access for many of those in southbound areas. These include Leicester, Coventry, Birmingham, Northampton, and even London – which is only 2 hours away.
Previously, the rental team was based at our Bodyshop and vehicle depot in Loughborough and their trucks were a short drive away in a storage park. The move has meant that the trucks are now also on the same site as the team so that they can review and process our trucks more efficiently than ever before.
Another major improvement of relocating the Rental Business away from Loughborough is that it has created far more operational space for our trucks at both Loughborough and the rental facility in Leicester. Plus, it has also increased the availability of car parking within the Loughborough depot; this has somewhat reduced stress levels, first thing in the morning!
David Halliday, Alltruck’s General Manager, and the landlord of the new site worked closely with the Rental Team to come up with the designs of the wooden cabin acting as the rental team’s brand-new office.
David wanted to ensure that the team had a large open plan office, (including a small breakout room) along with spacious toilets and a simple clean kitchenette. I think it’s safe to say the team loves their new space – especially the coffee machine!
The eye-catching log cabin element of the new office design was the final decision of the landlord, as he decided that renting a portacabin was not cost-effective. So now the team has a beautiful Finnish-style timber cabin as their new office, making it a pleasant space where both our staff and our valued customers will enjoy working in and visiting.
The Alltruck team has dubbed this site “Cobley’s” due to renting this land off of one of our valued customers, Cobley Transport, but the official name of the site will be Alltruck Leicester – Rental Division.
We hope to see you at our new site soon!
