The six benefits of leasing heavy commercial vehicles with TR Group.
Leasing heavy commercial vehicles has become an increasingly popular option for businesses across many industries.
With the rising costs of purchasing and maintaining trucks and trailers, leasing offers a flexible and cost-effective alternative that allows companies to access the trucks and trailers that they need without the burden of ownership.
At TR Group, we are proud that our fully maintained operating leases not only come with the right vehicle to suit your operations and needs – it’s also paired with the support of industry specialists who will make sure that all you have to do is focus on your core business and what’s important to you.
Here are the six benefits of leasing with TR Group:
1. You’ll get the right vehicles for the job.
At TR Group, we prioritise delivering the right heavy commercial vehicles tailored to your specific needs. With our team of specialists who have a deep understanding of vehicle requirements, our team can take charge of sourcing, pricing, specifying, and building suitable vehicles. We ensure that the vehicles we put on the road are optimised, guaranteeing efficient and safe performance to accomplish your tasks effectively.
2. Maximise your uptime.
We are focused on maximising the uptime of your leased vehicles. To achieve this, we implement preventative maintenance plans based on extensive experience that aim to minimise potential issues. Our dedicated team maintains a comprehensive stock of ‘swing componentry’, which allows us to quickly replace parts that are more efficiently replaced than rebuilt. By focusing on maximising vehicle uptime, we ensure that your operations continue as smoothly as possible while minimising vehicle downtime.
3. Downtime guarantee.
We understand the importance of minimising unexpected vehicle downtime and its impact on your business. That’s why we offer a downtime guarantee for your peace of mind. For vehicles that are less than 12 months old and have travelled fewer than 200,000 kilometres, we provide credits or replacement vehicles for any time your leased vehicle is off the road unexpectedly. Once your vehicle surpasses 12 months, we can offer credits for any unscheduled maintenance-related downtime after 96 hours. This way, we minimise disruptions and keep your operations running seamlessly.
4. Free driver training.
To enhance safety, efficiency, and compliance within your operations, we provide complimentary driver training with every new vehicle leased from TR Group. Our training programmes ensure that your drivers are equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to operate the vehicles safely and effectively. By investing in driver training, we also prioritise the well-being of your drivers and contribute to the overall success of your operations.
5. Access to rental “fill-ins”.
We understand that waiting for your newly leased vehicle to be built can cause temporary gaps in your fleet. To bridge these gaps and ensure uninterrupted operations, we offer access to rental “fill-ins” at your lease rate. This means that while you’re waiting for your new heavy commercial leased vehicles, we can provide you with a temporary rental vehicle, ensuring that your business continues to operate smoothly and minimise downtime.
6. End of lease is made easy.
When your lease term comes to an end, we will make the transition as smooth as possible. You have several options available to you. The first option is to return the vehicle to TR Group without any further obligation. Alternatively, you can choose to extend the lease term for your existing vehicle if it aligns with your requirements. Lastly, you also have the option to replace your current vehicle with a brand-new one from TR Group, ensuring that you continue to receive the latest vehicle models and technology to support your evolving needs. We aim to provide flexibility and convenience at the end of your lease term.
Leasing with TR Group not only provides you with the benefits listed above but also ensures a seamless and hassle-free experience throughout your lease.
