Wednesday, January 25th, 2012 - Europcar
Leading global car rental company Europcar will open four new branches this month as part of a strategic network expansion in the West Australian market.

The new stations at Esperance Airport, Esperance city, Kalgoorlie Airport and Kalgoorlie city allow Europcar to service a number of key industries including mining, construction, logistics and infrastructure.

The Esperance and Kalgoorlie branches, which open on 1st February, will focus on mine-specified commercial vehicle rentals rather than the more usual passenger vehicles.

The fleet includes trucks, dual cab utes, single cab utes, 12-seater vans and a number of 33-seater coaches.

Europcar Australia and New Zealand Operations Director, Matt Barker, said demand for commercial vehicle rentals in regional Western Australia was outstripping supply, particularly in areas like Esperance and Kalgoorlie.

“We are improving and broadening our product range to better meet the needs of our clients,” Mr Barker said.

“The new stations in Esperance and Kalgoorlie will serve local industry demands to meet the needs of ongoing project work, in particular increased fleet requirements and for temporary replacements due to breakdown and repairs.

“In addition, all of the vehicles for hire in the new Europcar branches are mine specified which means that they meet safety standards of construction and mine sites,” Mr Barker said.

Mr Barker said the focus on mine-specified commercial vehicles reflected Europcar’s ongoing commitment to expanding its fleet to meet varying client needs, including short and long-term vehicle rentals for corporate clients.

“This is a new initiative for Europcar and we’re very excited to be operating in these important markets,” Mr Barker said.
