Thinking of hiring a tanker for your transport operations, but not sure where to start? Have a question about the rental process, collection or even making modifications to your existing tanker?
From rental periods and purchasing, to new parts and repairs, we’ve put together our tanker rental faqs to help you find the tanker information you need, quickly and easily.
Tanker rental offers you a flexible way of adding a state-of-the-art tanker to your transport operations. It’s where you can hire a specific tanker to suit your needs for a defined period of time based on your business requirements.
What’s great is that it enables you to react quickly to new business wins and seasonal fluctuations, without having to take on the big commitment (and responsibility) of purchasing a tanker – especially if you’ll only need it for fixed periods of work. Plus, it’s an ideal way to add a high-performing, advanced tanker to your fleet, while avoiding the higher costs of purchasing one.
Our rental contracts are flexible. We offer long-term rental periods of between 1-5 years, as well as short-term rental periods, for up to 6 months.
One of the benefits of a long-term contract is that it allows you to focus on your core operations with little disruption – we provide full in-house back up for tanker management, service, testing, breakdown and repair.
On the other hand, a short-term contract can be useful in that it gives you the chance to “try before you buy” (or before you go for a long-term rental), and also the option to use your rental tanker for short-term storage as well as haulage.
You can collect your rented tanker from our TCL site in Garforth, Leeds (LS25 2JY).
By collecting it from our premises, you’ll benefit from a thorough on-site inspection, plus the opportunity to go over how the tanker works.
Our technical experts will be on-hand to talk you through the various features of your tanker and answer any questions you might have.
At the end of a hire period, we require tankers to be cleaned before being returned to us – you will need to provide a Cleaning Certificate on return.
