Day’s Rental invests in International Van of the Year 2015



Day’s Rental, has become the first major hire operator to take delivery of a fleet of New Daily van and chassis cab models. The company made its choice as part of a constant drive to ensure it has a modern range of vehicles available for customers.

Mike McCarry, Rental Director for Day’s Rental, explains: “The New Daily is a quality vehicle and we were eager to introduce the International Van of the Year 2015 to our fleet.  We are confident it will be very popular with our customers.”   

Day’s Rental has purchased 75 New Dailys; 50 panel vans with a mix of medium and long-wheelbases – plus 25 chassis cabs with tipper bodies, 15 of which benefit from Iveco’s factory-built 7-man crew cab .

McCarry continues: “We take pride in having a light commercial vehicle available for every eventuality. New Daily has given us precisely the flexibility we needed, with a high-end specification which will appeal to customers and give them another reason to hire from us.”

The New Daily, Iveco’s third-generation light commercial vehicle, has retained its tough ladder frame chassis structure, which provides maximum strength and flexibility and delivers long term durability – making it ideal for even the most demanding light commercial vehicle applications.

McCarry notes: “Businesses today class resale value as one of their key considerations when buying a vehicle. We specify our vehicles to maximise our return on investment, and these New Dailys have been specified with cruise control and parking sensors as standard. This not only means our customers benefit from one of the highest specification rental vehicles in their class, we are also confident New Daily will hold its value when the time comes to replace them.”

The family run company, which was founded in 1926, has gone from strength to strength as it has grown into a major presence in the rental market offering a Nationwide service, Day’s have recently opened its eighth rental site, in Bristol.

McCarry concludes: “There’s no denying Iveco has built a class-leading product with New Daily. Our customers are seeing impressive fuel returns, despite the vehicles only just starting to enter service. What’s more, they are also delivering a whole new level of comfort to the drivers too.”

New Daily offers an outstanding on-board experience with a cab that brings exceptional comfort and better noise insulation for the driver. Enhanced ergonomics accompany a more efficient air conditioning system, which also helps to ensure a great driving experience at all times. 

Day’s Rental now operates in excess of 6,000 commercial vehicles on its dedicated Rental fleet and expects each of the New Dailys to undertake a minimum of 20,000 miles a year.
