After steady growth in their early start up years, we were approached by Derybshire based cider manufacturer Ashover Cider Company. We were invited to consult them on how their growing demand and goal for expansion could be moved to the next stage with vehicle support.After advice and consultation from Sandicliffe Motor Contracts, Ashover Cider Company were keen to explore the benefits of funding a company van through contract hire. By choosing this method, they were given an opportunity to fund the purchase with the support of SMC, who took into consideration their commercial growth potential, meaning that the approved decision was fast, effective, personable and flexible – saving Ashover Cider Company money on large upfront costs.
