Avant will be using its stand at the 2014 show to launch AVANTHIRE in Scotland – a growing nationwide network of hire companies that will partner with Avant by adding its compact wheeled loaders and attachments to their fleets.
AVANTHIRE will operate via an 0800 telephone number or a newly created AVANTHIRE App which will automatically divert enquiries to the caller’s nearest hire partner. At launch there will already be four members of the network – Versatile Equipment, Winner Plant, Selwood and Avant Hire Services – but the company hopes to grow the list rapidly during 2014 with plans to reach a total of 50 by the end of the year.
The company is confident it can reach its target, thanks to the outstanding versatility of its little green machines which can be best described as tool carriers, with well in excess of 100 attachments now available which enable the machines to tackle a huge variety of different applications.
Commenting on the launch, Avant’s managing director Jukka Vaattovaara said: “The demand for hiring our machines has been growing steadily and we feel the time is now right to establish a national network of hire partners. These partners, as well as current Avant hirers who are also very welcome to join, will benefit from having something a bit different to offer and customers should enjoy a hassle-free service.”
