HeavyTorque Issue Fifteen: MV Commercial

ONE-STOP-SHOP

HIRE AND SALES ENTERPRISE MV COMMERCIAL BOASTS ONE OF THE LARGEST SPECIALIST READY-TO-GO FLEETS IN THE UK. MARGO COLE GETS THE INSIDE STORY OF ITS RAPID GROWTH.

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.

Announcement

HeavyTorque White Logo

It is with regret, that the HeavyTorque team have decided to take a stand based on an industry-wide ‘blind eye’ to the waste in the magazine and periodicals business.

HeavyTorque (#15, July 2018) was the final issue to grace the shop shelves, both on the High Street and across the travel network. As part of our onward strategy to adapt, HeavyTorque will now be distributed exclusively through controlled circulation and available through printed subscription.

Please note, this change will only affect newsstand purchasers. There will be no change for our loyal print subscribers.

Why the newsstand change? Quite simply, we can no longer (in good conscience) participate in a distribution programme that creates such an inherent waste of our precious natural resources – and money.

For those of you who have enjoyed HeavyTorque from the newsstand, we sincerely appreciate your business – and we would hope that you’ve enjoyed the magazine enough to consider a direct subscription?
