Just Vehicle Solutions goes full throttle with expansion

The Newark-based car and van leasing company, run by father and son Terry and Jake Matthews, has expanded its premises and car and van rental service to support the rising local demand for short-term car rental. 

Just Vehicle Solutions was established in 2014 and has successfully grown its rental fleet to over 230, having experienced an unprecedented boom in lockdown Britain due to their flexible leasing terms for 6- and 12-month vehicle rental.

For this local independent, Covid-19 provided the perfect storm; local demand for short-term hire increased at pace. More and more people wanted to downsize vehicles or work from home, which fuelled a need for short-term flexible rental solutions.

A demand that continues to speed on. The family firm has responded once more and this time has extended its premises on Northern Road, Newark, enabling it to increase its fleet and the local demand for daily and weekly short-term hires.

The new daily and weekly short-term hire service launched in November 2022 and is already proving a big hit with local commuters. In just the first two months, it has generated £10k of business sales for this local independent. 

Jake Matthews, Managing Director, said: “Whether it’s a van for the weekend, a breakdown, or an executive meeting away, we have a range of enquiries. We’ve also added electric vehicles to the fleet, so if people are looking at electric vehicles for the first time, they can hire one for a week and see if they like it.” 

The journey continues for this simplistic vehicle solutions provider as they have also added vehicle sales to their fleet.

Jake said: “We have really extended our offer in the last year in response to customer demand. We were getting more and more enquiries from customers who want to purchase vehicles at the end of their rental contracts. Customer service is important to us, and rather than send customers elsewhere; we have started offering finance options to allow our customers to buy vehicles at the end of rental periods” This allows us to be a one stop vehicle shop in Newark for cars and vans anywhere from 1 day onwards. 

To support the fleet growth, Just Vehicle Solutions plans to increase its workforce and is looking for new sales executives to join the team, along with two further apprenticeship opportunities. 

A former apprentice, Jake advocates apprenticeships, believing the rounded approach gives the best foundation for any career.

“We will be looking to recruit our 3rd and 4th apprentices to start in September. When they join us, we like to give them experience across the business from Operations, finance, a little bit of sales to more day-to-dayroles like the daily & weekly rentals.”
