Wrightbus announces new distribution arrangement with Close Brothers



Wrightbus has announced a new distribution arrangement with Close Brothers Vehicle Hire, to further facilitate the acquisition and financing of its market leading StreetLite range.

Under the agreement, Close Brothers has placed an initial stock order for 50 Wrightbus StreetLite buses in 2015, which will be immediately available for rental and leasing by bus operators. Close Brothers Vehicle Hire (CBVH) was founded in 2002 and since then has become the leading specialist in commercial vehicle rental.  They can assist prospective customers with vehicle finance solutions, enabling them to get quick and easy access to the buses they need for their business.

Managing Director of the Bus and Coach division at Close Brothers Vehicle Hire, Mike Beagrie, a well known figure within the bus and coach sector said:  “This new and exciting collaboration with Wrightbus will enable us to support operators around the country who are seeking immediate delivery of vehicles. This is particularly important for those operators who perhaps don’t want to take the step of an outright purchase with the level of capital expenditure this can involve and instead may prefer to look at alternative leasing and flexible rental options.

“The StreetLite is an exceptional vehicle range offering many benefits meeting the needs of today’s operator. In recent years, its fuel consumption performance has made it the bus of choice with nationally based and regional operators alike and we’re pleased to be working with Wrightbus in this new arrangement.”
