Lex Autolease keeps Lloyds Bank on the road with new mobile branches
Lex Autolease, the UK’s largest vehicle leasing and fleet
management company, has supplied Lloyds Bank with six mobile branches, which have
hit the roads.
The first mobile branches will serve local communities in
and around Carmarthen and Ebbw Vale in South Wales, St Austell in Cornwall,
Totnes in Devon, Chester-le-Street in County Durham and Cirencester in the
They are the first of eight mobile branches which will be
introduced across the Lloyds Bank network by April, extending the existing
fleet of eight which are already operating in the Bank of Scotland network.
The bespoke builds are based on a medium wheelbase Iveco
chassis cab with six-speed gearbox and a Euro6 engine. The chassis and branch
unit were assembled by Doncaster-based vehicle specialists Cartwright
Conversions. As part of the conversion, a wheelchair access lift has been
incorporated into the entrance step-well.
The mobile branches were designed and constructed to
ensure ease of maintenance, keeping them on the road where and when they’re
needed. They will be operated by G4S with ongoing fleet management and
maintenance provided by BT Fleet.
Tim Porter, managing director, Lex Autolease said, “The
introduction of these mobile branches is just part of the strong growth we’ve
seen in the light commercial vehicle sector.
“Our expertise in total fleet solutions will ensure we
keep Lloyds Bank’s mobile branches on the road, enabling them to support their
customers. And, working in partnership with a core supplier base of British
businesses, this is another way Lex Autolease is supporting Lloyds Banking
Group’s aim of helping Britain prosper.”
