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 flexible 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.
We’ll ensure your contract terms precisely meet your needs – whether you need to lease vans, HGVs, specialist, bespoke vehicles or ancillary equipment. Our funding solutions across the construction, utilities and infrastructure sectors cover it all.
Total fleet management
The vehicles typically used for construction projects are diverse and complex. Managing them to ensure you’re running an efficient fleet can be challenging. Whether you need assistance with administration, compliance, maintenance, accident management, breakdown and recovery, downtime management, 24-hour driver support, SMR, or telematics, we can help.
Downtime, idle vehicles and hired equipment can result in unnecessary costs to your business. Our technical specialists work with you to identify ways of improving efficiency across projects, reducing downtime and reliance on costly short-term hires - delivering tangible savings to your business.
Whether you need articulated dump trucks, excavators, forklift trucks, wheel loaders, tele-handlers, skid-steer loaders, track loaders or vehicle attachments, we’ve got it covered. Hitachi Capital’s specialist design and build team can provide end-to-end management of design and build projects for HGV, plant and bespoke vehicles.
