Public sector

Delivering optimal fleet performance

  • We know what it takes to keep public services running smoothly. Hitachi Capital has extensive experience of providing contract hire and fleet management solutions to public sector vehicle fleets – from county councils, local authorities and housing associations to emergency services, plant operators, and patient transport.

  • Our teams use their first-hand knowledge of the complex challenges involved in public sector work to ensure your fleet and your services run as efficiently as possible.

Our approach

Government framework compatibility

Supplying any Public Sector organisation may require participation in a government framework – a network of pre-approved companies deemed capable of working effectively and reliably with public sector entities. We are pleased to be able to offer our services through a number of these frameworks.

Vehicle funding

Vehicles rapidly age and depreciate. Capital spent on maintenance, repairs and running costs, rather than replacing assets, can seem like burning money.

That’s why we provide funding for all types of vehicles and assets across the public sector and can source or design and build bespoke vehicles to match your exact needs, ensuring your fleet is fit for purpose and your budgets are managed efficiently.

Fleet management

Risk management, downtime, reporting – our specialist teams understand the complexities and challenges involved in managing a public sector fleet. As trusted partners of leading public sector organisations, we know what’s required to optimise your fleet.

We offer customers a full range of outsourced services from funding, vehicle acquisition and disposal, to in-life services such as maintenance & downtime management and fleet consultancy - helping you to lead the way in delivering crucial services within your local and wider communities.

Compliance and maintenance

We know the safety of your drivers, passengers and the general public is key. Keeping your vehicles mobile and well maintained is essential to your operation.

Our public sector customers can benefit from a ‘mission critical’ category on specialist vehicles, providing you with assurance that we recognise the valuable work your teams and vehicles are required for within the community.

Our specialist teams work closely with you to ensure your vehicles are compliant, available and safe.

Our solution

  • Quality

    To meet government framework standards, suppliers must provide an extremely high quality of service. From providing customer references to company records, legal information and compliance documentation, Hitachi Capital meets all the criteria. This enables us to provide you with expert industry advice and guidance.

  • Trusted partners

    We have a wealth of experience in the public service sector, working as trusted partners with companies such as NHS Blood and Transplant, Environment Agency, G4S & MOD.

  • Specialist vehicles

    From cage tippers, 4x4s, recycling and refuse collection vehicles (RCVs), fork lift trucks, sweepers and gully vehicles, right through to buses and minibuses with specialist ancillary equipment and conversions – we can source or design and build any specialist or bespoke vehicle you need.

  • Mission critical status

    Vehicle safety, downtime management and compliance are paramount in providing critical public services, our specialist teams recognise ‘mission critical’ vehicles and attach additional considerations in the management of these assets, ensuring your fleet is compliant, available and safe.
