Commercial vehicle specialist, Asset Alliance Group, has opened its fourth retail and finance depot near Leeds to better meet the needs of existing customers and prospects.

The new two-acre site on Pheasant Drive, Birstall in Batley, is close to the M62 and M621 motorways, and hosts a range of stock for leasing, contract hire and rental, as well as assets for sale and finance.

Asset Alliance Group’s Truck and Trailer Sales Director, Brian Kempson, says: “In spite of the current climate, demand for vehicles continues to grow and ensuring we have a base in the north of England which is convenient for our customers became more important than ever.

“The location is proving perfect for some of our long-standing customers in and around Yorkshire, and we’ve already attracted new business in Leeds, Bradford and even Liverpool.”

He adds: “While challenges around restrictions and changing guidelines are likely to continue, all of our sites are Covid secure, and we are fully focused on working with our customers to provide the vehicles, finance packages and flexibility they need right now, and into next year.”

Kempson is working alongside new recruit, Jenna Williams, a Rental and Sales Executive who brings a wealth of experience from almost five years spent at Mercedes-Benz dealer Roanza Truck & Van.

The new Yorkshire base complements existing Asset Alliance Group sites in Wolverhampton and Newmains, as well as the Group’s premium new and used truck and trailer operation, Hanbury Riverside, near Ipswich.

Asset Alliance Group is one of the UK’s largest independent retailers of new, nearly new and used commercial vehicles, and 2020 marks its tenth year in operation. The Group maintains a large stock of assets including premium, single-owner and low-mileage vehicles.
