Truck Contract Hire

Fill in your details below to get more information from the team at Mac’s Truck Rental, whether you’re looking into contract hire or simply want to know more about one of our trucks.

At Mac’s Truck Rental, we’re experts in both truck rental and sales – and take the time to understand the needs of each of our customers, making sure the advantages of both are clearly communicated.

For businesses in particular, taking out truck contract hire on a big financial commitment can make a big difference to the overall costs involved, both short term and long term.

Short term, the main benefit to a business is that the initial outlay is much less than when purchasing a vehicle, meaning companies with lower overheads can gain access to quality trucks they need to complete their work. This also means that, especially in the short term, prices don’t have to rise to cover the large expense of buying a truck, keeping you as competitive as possible.

Long term, truck contract hire gives you peace of mind both operationally and financially.

Below, we’ll guide you through the various advantages of working with us to create a truck contract hire package to suit you, and how it can benefit your business in the long run.


Lower Monthly Costs 

When taking our truck contract hire, the monthly price you pay covers the depreciation of the truck, rather than the actual cost of the truck in whole. This means that your monthly costs will be much lower than if you were to go down a route of hire purchase.

No Unexpected Vehicle Costs

Your monthly costs are fixed – and we guarantee that for the length of your contract. Therefore if you should ever have any trouble with your vehicle, we’ll make sure it’s fixed as soon as possible, whilst providing you with a replacement vehicle in the meantime.

VAT Benefits of Truck Contract Hire

VAT is only applied to the depreciation of a truck, and not the cost of the truck overall, meaning this saving can be passed on to you. Plus, because this is a business expense, at least 50% of the finance cost is recoverable with truck contract hire, and 100% of the maintenance element of the contract is recoverable.


No fuss finding quality trucks 

Part of the challenge of using trucks on a daily basis is finding one that is of high quality. With truck contract hire, that’s our responsibility. We only source the highest quality trucks, often building these from new to meet your specific requirements, meaning you don’t need to spend time going through the painstaking process of sourcing trucks.

Minimal administration is required 

As servicing and ongoing maintenance is included within contract hire, again this saves you time and money by not having to go through all of the usual checks yourself. We’ll take care of arranging your 6-weekly checks, and will arrange for the standard requirements to be taken care of at times to suit you.

Cost-effective Fleet Management

Because of our existing relationship with truck manufacturers, and our long-standing history purchasing trucks, we can often command better prices, which can be passed on to you. This extends past the purchase of trucks, and also includes the servicing and maintenance side of ongoing truck costs, which benefit our customers because our experienced technicians can get all garage-work completed efficiently and as quickly as possible, minimising downtime.

We have a range of trucks available for long term hire, and can work with you to build something that’s ideal for your line of work. You can learn more about the trucks on offer below:
