Wrightington-based One Stop Hire, the largest independent tool and equipment hirer in the North West, has appointed a new tyre service provider for its ability to carry out routine work onsite.
The agreement will see ATS Euromaster service tyres across the firm’s fleet of 30 light commercial vehicles and eight company cars. The nationwide tyre specialist was selected largely for its ability to carry out service work in the customer’s own branches – eliminating the time, cost and hassle of sending a vehicle and driver to a local tyre dealer.
Steve Hitchen, Managing Director of One Stop Hire, says: “Our own business is modelled around being able to provide a one-stop-shop service to our customers, and that’s exactly what we need from a tyre service provider.
"ATS Euromaster has the expertise to supply and fit tyres for both our cars and light commercials – and can carry out the work in the most convenient locations.”
One Stop Hire was formed in 2006 as a ‘virtual hire’ website, but has expanded across eight depots, more-than-doubled its turnover and acquired more than 7,500 pieces of plant during the last two years. Key to such rapid growth was purchasing the assets of Bolton-based PSL and acquiring SJS Hire Tools, two of the North West's longest-established tool and equipment hirers, in 2009.
“We’re a rapidly growing business and that means having suppliers on board which are experts in their field is essential. We’ve already been putting ATS Euromaster to the test, and it’s great to see them going the extra mile to support us,” he adds.
One Stop Hire has full access to ATS Euromaster’s 1,000-strong mobile service fleet, which is the largest of its type in the country. Vehicles can be booked to fit replacement tyres in any non-roadside location, reducing vehicle downtime and allowing staff to continue working while tyres are being fitted or repaired.
All light commercials in the fleet also benefit from the reassurance of ATS Euromaster’s 24/7 nationwide roadside rapid-response service – the same used by many of the country’s most prestigious heavy truck operators. This ensures prompt assistance is only a phone call away in the event of a tyre-related breakdown anywhere in the UK.
One Stop Hire operates eight branches across the North West, in Bolton, Blackpool, Manchester, Liverpool, Preston, Widnes, Wigan and Wrightington. Each branch is an average of just three miles from the nearest ATS Euromaster centre.
