Northgate Vehicle Hire, market leaders in flexible van hire and fleet solutions, has won a three-year contract with One Vision Housing (OVH), a property services company based in Merseyside, providing the business with a flexible fleet of 80 plus vehicles.

After a highly competitive tender process, Northgate is now providing OVH with a core fleet of up to 80 vehicles, as well as supporting this with spot rental during busier periods. With OVH consistently growing over the past five years, the company was in need of the support of a fleet provider that could offer flexibility and quality service.

Paul Broadbent, Director of Operations at One Vision Housing, commented:
“During the tender process we were very impressed with Northgate’s flexibility, as well as its quality of service, attractive terms and flexible rates. As a growing company we often need to increase our fleet during busier periods, as well as decrease in size at quieter times of the year and Northgate’s service allows us to do so as and when required.”

He continued:
“Since working with Northgate the staff have continually impressed us with their dedication to customer service. We are thoroughly impressed with the service offering and look forward to maintaining our relationship throughout the next three years.”

Nick Cash, Head of Northgate Public Sector, said:
“We are thrilled to be working with One Vision Housing. Not only is the company renowned for customer service, which is an area we take extremely seriously, but it’s great to be involved at such an exciting time with its current plans for growth. As always, we are proud to offer such a flexible and reliable service to all of our public sector customers. We have no doubt that our relationship with OVH especially will go from strength to strength over the coming years and are looking forward to the journey.”

OVH was acknowledged as the fifth best company to work for in the UK in the prestigious Sunday Times top 100 list in February 2011. It is a Registered Provider of Social Housing with more than 11,700 homes across Sefton, Merseyside. For more information please visit
