Leeds Commercial buys Shawhire

  • 07 January 2014
  • By Christopher Walton

Leeds Commercial has bought the assets and goodwill of Nottingham rental firm Shawhire.

It takes the Leeds Commercial fleet to more than 2,000 vehicles, comprising of 1,000 vans, 300 tipper grabs, 300 tippers, 100 beavertails, 120 tractor units and 250 other rigids.

In a move Leeds Commercial describes as a “marriage of convenience”, Shawhire will now focus on its bodybuilding business Shawtrack, developing its whole vehicle type approval offering.

A statement on the Shawhire website informs customers: “Leeds Commercial will take over the continuing hires and all contractual terms will remain the same for a minimum period of three months, during this time Leeds Commercial will arrange an appointment with you to discuss your ongoing vehicle requirements and any other business.”

Leeds Commercial added that the move will also help it target the ‘access’ market – supplying vehicles for hire that include a variety of lifting platforms for working at height.
