Now you can rent success too

MAN Rental starts big rental and service campaign at transport logistic in Munich

At the transport logistic 2009 show in Munich from 12th to 15th May MAN Rental will be starting a wide-scale rental and service campaign under the motto "Now you can rent success too". For short-notice orders, seasonal business or a vehicle breakdown operators can cover their needs for modern trucks, trailers and semitrailers quickly and simply at MAN Rental. Thanks to a full range of services they can thus concentrate fully on their real business – and with only a minimum of handling and financing input. MAN Rental will be presenting itself at the 12th international trade fair for logistics, telematics and transport together with its partner EURO-Leasing GmbH in Hall A5, Stand 309/406.

Transport efficiency to rent: MAN Rental offers its customers a varied fleet of economical Euro 5 trucks from MAN's latest generation. It extends from 4x2 semitrailer tractors – normal and lowliner versions – via six-wheeler swap-body trucks right up to vehicles from different categories and with different engine ratings indivdually configured for specific customers. In future MAN Rental's hire fleet will cover not only the two heavy truck ranges, TGS and TGX, but also trucks from the light TGL and medium-weight TGM ranges. A feature common to all trucks is that they do their job reliably and extremely economically thanks to their modern and efficient drive units. This is also helped by the fact that they have a telematics system as a series feature. Greater safety in transport and in traffic is ensured in the heavy trucks by modern driver assistance systems such as ESP, LGS or ACC, which in some cases are part of the series equipment. The drivers for their part will appreciate the comfortable fittings in the spacious cabs.

This array of trucks is backed up by a comprehensive range of trailers and semitrailers from well-known manufacturers with which most transport jobs can be completed economically and reliably. These include container chassis, curtainsider semitrailers, box-body and refrigerated semitrailers, tipping semitrailers, central-axle trailers and BDF trailers, to name but a few examples.

To ensure that customers can rely on their vehicles from MAN Rental, all trucks and trailers/semitrailers are rented inclusive of regular maintenance and service (with wearing parts). This means that the vehicle is always optimally serviced, consumes less fuel and is reliable in operation. With a minimum contract term of only 12 months the customer is left largely independent and can react flexibly to fluctuations in his volume of business. MAN Rental of course offers trucks for short-term hire from one day upwards too so that customers can accept orders at short notice or react quickly if one of their vehicles breaks down .

Thanks to MAN Rental customers can calculate their costs exactly. The rental instalment provides a reliable basis for this. At the end of the rental term the customer can decide whether to return the vehicle or to add it permanently to his fleet.

To enable customers to concentrate on their actual business of transporting, MAN Rental offers a series of added-value services that reduce the administrative input for managing the rented fleet to a minimum. Here there is a 24-hour service, for example, which in the event of a breakdown provides competent and unbureaucratic assistance round the clock throughout Europe, or handling of technical inspections, tyre service, monitoring of cooling equipment and settlement of tolls. Here MAN Rental relies on well-known partner companies who put their specialist experience at the service of the customers.

MAN Rental's range of services is currently available in Germany, Poland and Hungary; other European countries are due to follow step by step. MAN Rental is run by Truck Rental Solutions GmbH, a joint venture of MAN Finance International GmbH (MFI) and EURO-Leasing GmbH headquartered in Sittensen, Germany. MFI is a subsidiary of MAN AG and the exclusive provider of financing for MAN commercial vehicles. MFI has held 25.1 per cent of the shares in EURO-Leasing GmbH since the end of 2007. EURO-Leasing GmbH is a leading truck rental company domiciled in Sittensen near Hamburg with a rental fleet of more than 10,000 commercial vehicles.
