Why You Should Consider Long Term Truck Rental for Your Business

Jun 5, 2021

Renting vs buying

You have committed to making regular deliveries but your business doesn’t have the capital available to invest in heavy transport. You think that it is more cost effective to rent a truck than borrow the funds needed. Perhaps your business is starting to really take off and you need more delivery trucks than you own, or you need to make unexpected, regular deliveries of cargo that your own fleet can’t handle.

When it comes to renting any vehicle, you want to ensure you’re going with a trusted company. Southern Cross Truck Rentals (SCTR), located in Smeaton Grange, are market leaders for truck rentals.

Our large fleet of late-model, clean and comfortable trucks, are all available for long-term hire.

We have utes, vans and minibuses ready to go. We rent heavy vehicles including moving trucks, flatbeds, refrigerated and tipper trucks. We have a range of semi-trailers and prime movers.

Cost benefits

Straight away, when you decide on long-term truck rental from SCTR, you have saved your business from the huge financial outlay of purchasing your own transportation.

You will have NO ongoing financial outlay, in the form of insurance or vehicle registration.

You won’t have to worry about recurring payments for expensive truck maintenance or servicing. Maintenance, servicing and breakdown cover will all be part of your rental package and covered by SCTR.

Reliability and peace of mind

As drivers ourselves, SCTR understand that you may be comfortable driving a particular model of truck. Our fleet includes the more popular vehicles out there so you could have the added confidence of driving the same vehicle that you are used to.

If you don’t have the necessary licence for the truck you need to hire, then have a chat with our friendly team about truck and driver packages.

We understand that you are running to a schedule. You may have clients waiting for a delivery or staff who can’t work until they receive your delivery. When in doubt, you should look for a rental company that has plenty of testimonials and accreditations. Don’t be afraid to ask them what their servicing schedule is. If in doubt, ask a mechanic what’s what.

At SCTR, our vehicles are reliable, late-model, well-maintained and regularly serviced, but we understand that things can go wrong, sometimes. We arrange for 24 hour breakdown cover, with roadside assistance for each of our rentals, to give you extra peace of mind. This means that, with us, if there are any problems with the rental truck, we will cover it for you. You contact us, day or night, and we will sort out the problem for you. Whether we need to repair or replace your vehicle, we will do all we can to get you moving as soon as possible.
