From small start-up business to national commercial hire and sales service, MV Commercial’s rise has been swift and very successful, based on carefully planned acquisitions and responding to customers’ needs. In just 17 years the company has grown to employ more than 150 people, run a fleet of 1,350 vehicles available for contract hire – including crane tractor units – and operates depots across the UK.

The company was founded in 2001 by Tom O’Rourke as a car importer called Motor Vision, based in Livingston, West Lothian. But customers were soon asking for commercial vehicles as well, with demand from local businesses for hire rather than purchase, and for a supplier that understood and supported their needs.

MV Commercial started providing small commercial vehicles on flexible fixed monthly rates, a service that grew rapidly to the point where, in 2002, the firm invested in a United Vehicle rental franchise. This was followed a year later by the acquisition of Regal Truck Rental in Luton, which instantly added 150 trucks to the company’s books and took MV Commercial’s truck rental service UK-wide.
