The versatility and reliability of Toyota HiLux utilities and HiAce vans is helping to strengthen Budget Car & Truck Rental's position as Australia’s number one rental company for trucks and commercial vehicles.

The company operates one of the country’s largest rental fleets of Toyota HiLux trays and HiAce vans.

Mr Hamish Mitchell, national marketing manager for Budget Car & Truck Rental said the choice of Toyota light commercial vehicles allowed the company to provide a good mix of utilities and vans to customers.

“We operate Toyota vehicles from Sydney to Perth and everywhere in between,” he said.

“The beauty of the HiLux and HiAce is that they meet so many different applications.

“Customers select vehicles for a million different reasons. A courier company may be short of a vehicle, or an individual may simply want to move something on the weekend.

“It’s catering for that kind of versatility that is a benefit of the Toyota range.”

Vehicle familiarity is another major reason Budget Car & Truck Rental offers Toyota light commercial vehicles on its fleet.

“The Toyota brand is certainly well-known and we find that customers feel comfortable driving a brand that they’re familiar with,” said Mr Mitchell.

“The vehicles can also be used for many different jobs. A HiAce van can be used for everything from transporting boxes to coffee tables, or even paintings. It is just so versatile.”

Vehicle reliability and resale value are important to Budget, but Mr Mitchell said that the crucial factors to the company’s choice of Toyota light commercial vehicles are buying prices and vehicle availability.

“We appreciate not having to enter into a six month order cycle for our vehicles and Toyota is very good at being able to deliver the vehicles when we need them,” Mr Mitchell said.

“But at the end of the day we will only select vehicles that provide value to our customers.

“The Toyota range is very easy to drive - and that’s important when we are renting to a wide range of people.”
