The construction sector is recognised by the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) as one of the largest contributors to the UK’s GDP and employment rates. At Hitachi Capital, our specialist teams have an in-depth understanding of vehicle requirements essential to seeing construction projects through to successful completion.
Working as your trusted partner, we’ll make sure your fleet is readily available, compliant and well maintained at all times - so your customers can rely on your services to get the job done
Specialist construction vehicles can cost hundreds of thousands of pounds to purchase outright and are expensive to maintain. Our expert guidance and leasing options take the pressure off, allowing you to choose the best vehicle to get the job done right.
Your vehicles work in tough and demanding environments. Keeping them on the road and minimising costly downtime is a priority for every construction business. Our specialist downtime management team uses real-time vehicle utilisation and performance data from on-board telematics, to monitor and identify anomalies in your fleet’s operation to ensure it operates at maximum efficiency.
The nature of construction means you’re likely to need a wide range of vehicles, ancillary equipment and machines throughout the life of a project.
From vans to HGVs with specialist equipment and plant machinery, we can source or design and build specialist or bespoke vehicles to match the changing needs of your fleet.
Construction sites can be dangerous, so it’s essential that your vehicles and machines are operating correctly and are fully compliant. Optimising vehicle compliance, availability and safety – including managing annual compliance events such as LOLER testing – is one of our top priorities. So you can rest assured, everything’s taken care of.
A number of our staff are paid in a manner different to Hitachi Capital’s online system. To accommodate us, Hitachi Capital developed their online quotation website at their own cost in order to incorporate our requirements. I believe that this was one of the contributing factors that led to the success of the DB Schenker Rail (UK) Ltd Fuel & Go scheme.

We decided to switch to Hitachi Capital Vehicle Solutions based upon the robustness of its proposition against other contenders. Having proposed invaluable improvements within a comprehensive, ten-page review, the fleet management company has implemented service benefits, creating cost savings for DAF Trucks from day one.
